One night a month, my husband and I, plan a night/day for one another, which we call date night. I had heard about Green Russell from a friend and thought it would be nice. It was better then nice, it was a wonderful four hour date night!! The food was delicious and the drinks were wonderful. But, it was atmosphere that I truly enjoyed as did he. The Green Russell is tucked away, where you could be in a different time or place. Folks are encouraged to dress up and to refrain from using cell phones, and to speak intimately. The decor was comfortable and lent itself to having a romantic evening. We will be returning, especially now that they don't require reservations.
Green Russell has an amazing list of cocktails. Don't be afraid to try anything on the list. I also highly recommend the Loaded Chips. They feed three or four people, and are delicious.
We enjoyed the happy hour specials and loved the attentive service of our waiter.
Great drinks, great atmosphere. Easy to get in on weekend before 7pm. Pierogi was incredible. So were the brisket sliders. Caramel apple pie was perfect. The fine people at Visit Denver gave this to us as a reco. Brilliant.
We were greeted and given water right away by the bar back. The bar tender came over a minute later and asked if we had any questions about the menu and that he'd be back to take our order. We were ready a couple minutes later. We sat there and waited for TWENTY MINUTES before he returned to take our order. We were sitting in the cocktail seats across from the bar, in full view. I counted six parties, including my husband and I, of 2-4 people. The place was pretty dead. There were four people behind the bar. We were just about to get up and leave when he finally came back (after we politely stared him down) and apologized, saying he thought someone else was taking care of us....(??) Bad communication. Bad service. Good drinks though.
I always find the bartenders extremely approachable and knowledgeable at Green Russell. I provide them an example of a drink I enjoy and they always deliver the best cocktail ever. I have yet to order anything off of the drink Menu. This is not the place to go for a cheap drink or to hook up. If you want a bar that is not crowded and serves great cocktails, this is the place. They also serve Wednesday's Pies, which are amazing. Definitely make reservations!
Great ambience however, the bartender was very rude and condescending. All other waitstaff were great
I really like Green Russell; it's my second time going and I would go again. The "Pie Shop" entrance adds to the whole feel; they spare no detail, from the bartenders' outfits to the block of ice, you get the entire 1920s vibe!
We would go back for the drinks and the ambience!! The food was just so-so.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and decor of Green Russell. Drinks were fresh and delicious.
The Green Russell is one of my favorite spots in downtown. It is a little more on the expensive side but a great place for a special occasion!
Welcome to a 1920's speakeasy in downtown Denver (lodo to be exact). Wonderful hand crafted cocktails with only the best mixes and liquors. Bartenders are more like mixologists and know how to make the cocktail you couldn't even dream of.
It can get a bit warm since it's downstairs. They also have a wonderful wine list. I believe they offer a limited menu (haven't tried), I like the drinks.
This is a great place to show off for a date and create that romantic atmosphere, it worked on me - maybe it will work for you. Give it a try and see.
We love this bar. We brought a relative who is visiting to this bar and he raved about it. The bartender's choice drink is the way to go. I had a delicious sweet lime champagne drink. The wait staff can sometimes seem aloof, which other reviewers have mentioned, and it can be confusing as to who can take orders. Sometimes bar backs will serve water, but can't take an order. Then bartenders who aren't your specific waiter will come take an order. This didn't really bother me. The bar is still a great spot that we will visit on a regular basis.
fun speakeasy vibe and the bartenders and the cocktails they make are truly amazing. I'll be thinking about The Bitter Moon for a while! Also the food they serve is 'bar food' at its fine dining finest--rich and satisfying.
If you want great drinks, that aren't just your ordinary cocktails, go to the Green Russel and let the bartenders work their magic!
The food was fantastic. Cocktails, too. Beautiful interior and wonderful ambiance.
However, a unnecessarily elitist bartender with a bad attitude made us want to leave $0 tip with his snide comments and over all douchebag-ness.
Sadly, it gave a very negative image to the bar, especially to what I had imagined before coming.
Everything about our night at Green Russell was outstanding. I will be visiting there again and bringing all my friends with me.
Every drink I have ordered off the menu has been great, but the bartender's choice takes the cake everytime!
The horrible way we were treated by the management and reception staff left a very sour taste in my mouth about ever going back to The Green Russell. While the place has good drinks, the temperment of the management made it so I will NEVER be going back for another visit. Overall, the place is very overrated and too expensive for what you get.
Don't come to Green Russell if you actually want table service. My party of six was reluctantly waited on when we first sat down, had empty drinks glasses on the table for 20 minutes before someone finally came by again (despite the place being almost completely devoid of other customers), and when we told the waiter we had been waiting for 20 minutes, he just gave us a blank stare and a shrug. And for that, we got to pay an automatic gratuity of 20%. The food and drinks were both excellent, but the waitstaff was completely incompetent and rude. If you are looking for a fun, speakeasy type of experience with great cocktails and a level of service befitting the price of the drinks, stick to Cruise Room and Williams & Graham.
