Fans of the Silver Plume mountain stopover known as the "bread bar" will once again have their I-70 cocktail stop. After about two months closed, Bread Bar (formerly Dram Apothecary) is reopening Saturday under new ownership.
Located on Silver Plume's Main Street, Bread Bar will operate weekends from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays, serving up new cocktails created in collaboration with The Way Back team, as well as throwing a grand opening backyard barbecue and hog roast.
Cocktails include the Baby Doe Tabor with vodka, sage jam, citrus, and soda; and the Clifford Griffin, made with rye, Colorado amaro, lemon, and a red wine float.
Beers bottled and on tap also will be available from Denver Beer Company, Station 26, Great Divide, Avery, TRVE, Black Shirt, and Coors.
The bar will roll out a food menu starting in the fall, and, as of August, the space will be available for events, including weddings and supper clubs.
Bread Bar owners Casey Berry, Sam Alviani, Stephen Fenberg, and Rob DuRay purchased the property in May for $195,000.
“Somewhere along the line, Silver Plume became a special place to all four of us,” explains Berry. “We found that our individual visions—to create a place that people would be excited to find, and preserve the historic beauty of the building—were very much aligned. Each of us brings something different to the table, from event planning and brewing, to community engagement and public relations.”
The century-old building will maintain its history as a bake shop with original decor and furnishings, and the backyard and deck have been expanded for future live concerts.
