Frasca Food & Wine, Boulder’s award-winning restaurant that just landed a James Beard Foundation accolade for Outstanding Service, continues its expansion into Denver with a wine bar opening at Union Station this fall. The European-style wine bar Sunday Vinyl sits across the alley from another Frasca sibling, Tavernetta.
The wine bar takes over the Local(dish) Market space in LoDo, bringing an edgy and dark space from Semple Brown Design, according to 5280 Magazine. The 65-seat bar plans to include a 17-seat horseshoe-shaped bar made from Carrara marble, arched charcoal banquettes, windows overlooking the train platform, and gold and blush tones throughout the space.
Frasca co-owner Bobby Stuckey bases Sunday Vinyl on his Sunday tradition of listening to vinyl records while drinking wine. A global wine list spans about 1,500 bottles, curated by wine director Carlin Car and lead sommelier Clara Klein.
Chef de cuisine Charlie Brooks, who worked at Gramercy Tavern in New York City before landing at Tavernetta last summer.
The bar plans to be open daily starting at 3 p.m.
