It has been nearly two decades since the 715 Club, a dive located on Welton and 26th Street, closed its doors and as of last weekend, the bar is back. The new owners are Sudhir Kudva, Corey Costello, and Michael Reilly, all three hospitality veterans, whose main focus has been Matchbox and The Squire. Their goal was to breathe life into this relic of old Denver that was made into a 50 year institution of the neighborhood by legendary investor and philanthropist Charles Cousins.
So the space got updated but not dramatically changed. A big open room is centered around the bar where the menu is big and the prices are friendly. "Our goal is to have everyone have a good time, with a good drink in hand" Kudva shared. "Our approach at Matchbox and The Squire is to promote low and uniform prices and that is how we became part of those communities and gained loyal customers. That's our plan here too," he added.
715 Club is open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. on weekdays and from noon to 2 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
