History

of the Avenue Grill

 
The Avenue Grill building is located at 630 E. 17th Avenue in Denver, Colorado. The neighborhood is commonly referred to as ‘Uptown’ and this section of East 17th Avenue is popularly referred to as “restaurant row”. This attractive brick building was constructed in 1924 and was home to many small retail shops including the East Denver Creamery & Delicatessen owned by the James McCreedy Family.
 
Today the building is home to the Avenue Grill, which was established in 1988 as a traditional San Francisco style neighborhood restaurant. The restaurant décor is reminiscent of the supper clubs of the 30’s and 40’s featuring an impressive vintage bar. The “Avenue”, as the locals know it is renowned for its award winning martinis, friendly staff and impressive imaginative menu.
