Prior to opening its doors at the end of the month, RiNo’s The Ramble Hotel has made quite a splash both locally and on the national level. Its restaurant, Super Mega Bien, was listed as one of Eater’s 19 most anticipated openings (around the country) of 2018. Its bar, Death & Co., is the first outpost by the same name of the famed New York cocktail destination. Together with those food and beverage offerings, the 50-room boutique hotel at the corner of 25th and Larimer Streets has already made it to the pages of Architectural Digest, Travel & Leisure, Vogue, and The New York Times, among other publications.
Now the wait is nearly over. The Ramble is accepting reservations for Monday, April 30 and beyond. Death & Co. will open to the public on Tuesday, May 1. And Super Mega Bien will debut there the following week, by Tuesday, May 8.
Super Mega Bien is the much anticipated second restaurant by Denver chef Dana Rodriguez, of Work & Class fame. At this new spot, Rodriguez will offer pan-Latin dim sum, with carts of small plates circulating the dining room, along with bigger, shareable dishes. Diners can expect Brazilian fish stew, Puerto Rican mofongo, and Mexican barbecued mixiote, among other regional specialties. “Denver is growing so much,” Rodriguez told Eater back in January. “We’re working to keep it affordable, so all people can come and eat a good meal.”
With Death & Co., drinkers will have a few options from these 11-year New York cocktail veterans. The Death and Co. Denver lobby bar will be customers’ main point of access, along with a breakfast and lunch cafe run by the same team, called DC/AM. Later in May, a 20-seat “immersive cocktail experience” known as Suite 6A will also open by the same team inside The Ramble. It sounds similar in style to L.A.’s Walker Inn, a 20-some-seat, back-room bar started by some of Death & Co.’s owners and located inside the Hotel Normandie. That bar offers reservation-based cocktail tastings in addition to a la carte items.
As for The Ramble itself, the decor is inspired by 17th Century French salon society. Chandeliers and makeup vanities will add to the guest rooms, and their bars will be stocked with Death and Co.-approved bottles and mixers. The hotel’s courtyard bar and outdoor seating area, The Garden, will open in the coming weeks, with room for nearly 100 people. And the Vauxhall ballroom, theater, and music venue will offer space for another 60 patrons.
