Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Sky Bar is a cocktail bar that celebrates the “Golden Age of Air Travel”. A nod to simpler times when you could sip a quality drink with ample space & comfort high above the clouds. Whether you’re chasing an after-work sipper, a mid-day reviver or a special something to be enjoyed alongside a special someone, you should find it amongst these pages. We proudly work with quality spirits & produce, sourced locally where we can.

We are located inside the historical Stanley Aviation building, built in 1954 by an aviation pioneer named Bob Stanley. He was the first American to fly a jet plane and invented several different kinds of ejection seats and pods. Stanley Aviation is now Stanley Marketplace, a beautiful space filled with retail shops, delicious restaurants, an event space, and more!

You can find us on the west side overlooking our beautiful Rocky Mountains and on a clear day you can see from Pikes Peak to Longs Peak.

    Drink was good, snack nuts only so we picked up food from downstairs and brought it in. Rated lower because we had a table reservation but were seated at the counter.

    Sky BarResponded on December 9, 2022Hi Madison! There must have been a mix up as your reservation shows that the counter was booked. Next time just let one of our gracious staff know and they will be happy to make it right. I hope you had a great experience and look forward to hosting you again.

    Tiny place—mostly bar stools. Had an odd Old Fashion made with rum—wouldn’t order it again. It’s was ok.

    Sky BarResponded on November 6, 2022Thanks for the input! Our bottle selection is deep and our bartenders well versed in any classic cocktail. Please ask for a classic Old Fashioned next time you're in and you won't be disappointed!

    Cute little place. Comfy chairs though bar stools could use a higher foot bar for those of us under 5’10”. Drinks good. No significant food. It’s about drinks here.

    Sky BarResponded on November 6, 2022Hi FoodieMom! Thanks for the feedback. Please reserve a seat at the bar next time, the stools are short and mounted up on a platform. We have snacks but tons of other food options right here at Stanley! Can't go wrong with anything downstairs.

    Wasn’t sure what to expect as I saw great reviews on open table about this unique bar. I thought the ambiance was going to be different more upscale, but it was clean, comfortable and had great views of rod the mountains. The bar tender was feet friendly and knowledgeable about the drinks which convinces my wife to order a drink that she was unsure about because it contained milk. She loves it. My Sri k was great as well. On thing to be aware of. When you arrive at the location, it is part of a rustic mall “Marketplace “ and there is no outside signage for the Sky Bar. It is on the 3rd floor on the far right side of the building.

    Sky BarResponded on November 6, 2022Thanks for finding us! We are working on some better signage within Stanley. Views for miles once you do!

    Skybar was such a coop experience! It was my first time there and I was very impressed with the ambience of the small space. It's inspired by airtravel in the 50s/60s Era so lots of older music playing in the background. My bartender, Becky, was awesome! She was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable on all the ingredients in their cocktails. It was so relaxing to enjoy a cocktail and read my book. They've only been open for 5 months so I would definitely recommend you check the place out.

    Living in Aurora, I've been waiting for a place like this to open. I love the Stanley, but as a DINK, sometimes it's overall vibe is a little too kid friendly. So when an adults only cocktail bar opened, I was all in. I love the theme and honoring the history of old NW Aurora/OG Denver airport area. We decided to try two cocktails from each themed side of the menu and they did.not.disapoint. We started with the traditional side and our server was knowledgeable about all the ingredients and styles. Then when we were ready to try the destination specific drinks he recommended something that would pair well with our first drinks. While we decided to go rouge and try something different but you could tell they are passionate about the drinks served. Overall, I can't recommend this place more and I think it's going to become our usual Friday night haunt.

    My fiance and I decided to celebrate our first date together at the SkyBar as we had our first date at the Stanley Marketplace. SkyBar staff greeted us with a friendly congratulatory conversation as well as a glass of champagne. They didn't need to do this but went above and beyond. They were polite and knowledgeable about their cocktails. The space is small, however, intimate. This space made our celebration feel special. I highly recommend the SkyBar.

    i went here because of the compelling description from them. however, it is a really small space and it has no food at all. only drinks. so i didn't stay. neither open table nor their site made it all that clear. i must say it is in a very interesting market place. and the staff was perfectly friendly.
