America's Best Cocktail Bars
Green Russell, opened just last year on Denver’s bustling Larimer Square, embraces the speakeasy meme (you walk through a small pizza stand to find this basement bar). The bartenders are all well schooled in the classics and hand-chip ice from a 300-pound block when you place your order.
Check It Out: That big window behind the bar with the bright lights on inside? That’s the bar’s indoor plantation, where Meyer lemons, kumquats, Thai basil, and more are grown to supply fresh drink ingredients.
