Little Man Ice Cream will open its 6,000-square-foot ice cream factory and tasting room on Saturday, July 6. The new Willy Wonka-esque addition sits at 4411 West Colfax Avenue in the West Colfax neighborhood of Denver.
Guests enter the factory through a walk-in freezer and pop into a space designed to replicate an industrial ice cream churn. Most features are round or cylindrical to keep that churning theme going.
Visitors take a look at the toy-block menu board to decide between scoops, pints, ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, and malts. Orders are placed at the counter where toppings are presented in a laboratory fashion.
Little Man Ice Cream will open Tuesday through Thursday, from noon to 10 p.m.; Friday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
