A baker whose pastries Denverites might already be familiar with has opened his own shop in Five Points. Zach Martinucci started serving his Rebel Bread (no relation to Rebel Restaurant) on Sunday from inside The Temple, an artists collective at 2400 Curtis Street. Martinucci’s baked goods include breads, bagels, and pastries, which also are available around town at coffee shops like Amethyst, Blue Sparrow, and Huckleberry. And he’ll teach bagel-making workshops periodically.
Across the street from the PS Lounge, a new piano bar and Mediterranean restaurant is coming to the space formerly occupied by Park House, which closed in 2016. For now, Corner House has opened at the corner of Colfax and Madison Street with a full bar and lounge area but no food menu. Soon customers can expect live blues, jazz, and piano nights on the weekends, as well as weekday events from karaoke to open-mic comedy. According to bar manager Simon Camtari, the large property dates back to the 19th Century, when it was built as a farmhouse. Now the new bar will hold a Halloween masquerade ball on Friday in honor of its storied (read haunted) history.
Take three for the Bonnie Brae icon Campus Lounge, which closed after 40 years in 2016, reopened last year for just five months, and, as of Sunday, now has another chance under new ownership. Dan and Jeff Nickless, longtime customers and former meat suppliers to the neighborhood sports bar, opened their latest version of the Lounge over the weekend, Westword reports. It’s got TVs again, tons of sports memorabilia, and chili cheese fries and nachos on the menu.
