The founders of The Big Wonderful and Denver Bazaar have one RiNo corner covered. At 28th and Walnut streets, alongside permanent fixtures 14er Brewing and Stem Ciders, weekend drinkers can now find Booz Hall, Friday Night Bazaar, and Yeah Baby all within cheers-ing distance.
The newest of them is Yeah Baby, a self-proclaimed biodynamic gin palace, art gallery, and disco. For its six-month tenure — which started the end of September — the pop-up space has exploded with plant life, purple lights, and rainbow wallpaper. At its entrance, customers approach an iPad-studded counter to order from a menu of CapRock vodka and gin cocktails, brandies, and hot teas mixed with those spirits. Then they move on and wait for drinks to be delivered; the bar itself is hidden away like the backstage of a production.
Once inside, it’s choose your own adventure — catching up on the set couches and chairs, perusing local artwork, or getting down to dance tracks late into the evening. Yeah Baby opens from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Eater photographer Jonathan Phillips stopped in for a taste on a busy Friday.
