If you are looking for a quiet space to get away from the crowds, Greenlight Lab is it! Be sure to make a reservation, they will take great care of you - amazing drinks & decor, dim lit ambiance. Wonderful spot for a specialty made cocktail with friends, or great for a date, we will be back!

This has become my favorite craft cocktail lounge in Denver. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and fantastic! The cocktails are rotated seasonally and are among the best, if not, the best in Denver. I prefer this local gem over any other place for cocktails and go out of my way to get there.

Get the craft cocktail thing but a bit overly complicated, and too hipster for me. Good staff and service and willing to make anything if the menu of drinks is not appealing. Alley entry and atmosphere also cool. Worth a visit and in a fun part of town.

The complexity and detail put into their cocktails is unmatched. Cozy and intimate atmosphere paired with excellent music (r&b / hip-hop) that fit the vibe perfectly.

Drinks were great. Server did not expertly guide us to drink choices and one dealer’s choice drink was sent back as it did not meet the taste profile that was requested.

Got there at 5:45 pm, had a reservation. We were seated, there were only two other tables. We waited 20 mins before our order was taken. One table, that had already finished their first round, was asked for their second round before we were even asked for our first round. Poor service.

It was perfect! The service from both bartenders was amazing! They definitely try to make your night special and exactly what you want (and they succeed). The entire experience is customized! They use high quality ingredients too, which makes their drinks definitely worth the price! Thank you for an awesome night :)

Our waiter was awesome and very knowledgeable about the drink menu. He was friendly and engaging, making the night fun. Greenlight LAB has a great vibe, is energetic and lively, yet is perfect to meet friends or go on a date. I will 100% be back and bring friends!

All our drinks at Greenlight Lab were great. The snacks were good but missing a few things - there were no crackers for the charcuterie plate for example and the crackers and burrata were not evenly matched. Overall, this place is great and I will be back, however for this group of 8 people it seemed like we overwhelmed them. Drinks are necessarily slow because of the complicated nature of them and number of ingredients, but we would have ordered at least two more rounds of drinks if service had been faster. The snacks did seem pretty overpriced, even for this location ($6 small bowl of popcorn?!) It’s a cool space though, next time I’ll go with only one or two people and not order the popcorn.

The service goes above and beyond. We only tried one app and it was good. Their signature drinks work very well but they were out of the one I wanted to try. Would definitely go back to try what I wanted.

The cocktails were great but the service was atrocious. Only two people working on a Saturday night! We would have stayed longer and purchased more drinks but the time til we were seated to our first cocktail arriving at our table was almost an hour!

Love the space, love the decor, love the drinks... the staff are really unpretentious for such an intentional space and experience. Been here twice now, and love that you can get a reservation at a cocktail bar. It's been so far pretty mellow before 8pm both times I've gone to Greenlight, but that's unlikely to last as word gets out. Really top drinks.

Greenlight Lab is the hidden gem of RiNo! Warm, cozy, and dim lit, the simplistic, clean decor adds to the welcoming ambiance of the venue. A large projector reflects images of old films high on the wall above the bar. Succulents hang on the wall in glass spheres, alluding to one of my favorite cocktail creations on the menu: The "Ice Sphere Drink". This is more than just your average cocktail bar - this is an innovative cocktail experience.
