Chef Sheamus Feeley opened the restaurant with his partner Angela Neri, the forces behind their own local hospitality group. Feeley already had a knack for swanky French dip sandwiches, slinging $22 versions with prime rib at Hillstone restaurant. His more low-key LoDo setting brings roast beef instead of prime rib, driving the price down to $11 to $12 instead.
On Pony Up’s website, the duo note the that “experience should be about our guests and never about the bartender or chef.” Of course, French dips take center stage with varieties such as the Frenchie with Gruyere cheese and crispy onions, the Mellow with smoked mushrooms and Swiss cheese, and the Ord Street Classic with rosemary and mayonnaise.
The simple menu also features karaage, spinach and artichoke dip, a peanut coleslaw, and more, along with cocktails.
The bar operates from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, with food served until 1 a.m.
