The server was incredible! Justin, he made it seem so personable and made sure our dietary restrictions were carefully handled! Took the time to figure out what we liked in our cocktails to make wonderful recommendations!

Drinks were amazing and our waitress (blonde girl sorry we don’t remember your name) made our experience even better! She was so sweet and helpful. The brownie and ice cream is a MUST. Definitely make your way here if you have the chance.

Had been wanting to check this place out for over a year and finally had the chance to do so over a delicious drink with a friend. Service, drinks, and ambiance was excellent! Didn’t get any food but imagine it to be as tasty as the cocktails.
Highly recommend the Raspberry Baret and the Spanish Revival in terms of House cocktails.

Amazing ambiance with delicious craft cocktails. Limited menu but everything we tried was fabulous (flat bread and burger). A little pricey but worth it for a special evening out. Reservations are a MUST!

Very fun experience and ambience, creative drinks and tasty appetizers. I brought my sister from out of town and our favorite was the East Street. Fruity but not too sweet. Reservations are 2 hours slots so try to be on time and if you have to cancel, do it before 3 PM on the day of reservation otherwise there is a late cancel charge. It’s dark and quiet inside with old-timey music and beautiful decor. I’d love to come back and try more!

We expected fancy cocktails and just bar food, but the delicious "small plates" filled us up enough to qualify as dinner. The drinks aren't cheap, but interesting and tasty.

The main attraction is the speakeasy vibe, of course, and it doesn't disappoint. Service was very attentive and friendly. If you don't have great vision in the dark, let your eyes adjust before you start walking behind the bookcase.

A great time and a beautiful bar!

I've been waiting to visit williams & Graham's since I first discovered them on the travel channel. My second visit to Denver (first visit they were closed) I went with my boyfriend and his sister and her husband. I enjoyed my first experience, and the bone marrow is what I came for and it was soooooo good!! And it was my first time ever having a drink made catered to my description and craving (bartenders choice). I ordered two. I wanted tequila, citrus and floral taste. They even started us out with a round of gimlets and those were amazing too! Can't wait to go back when I'm in town.

Awesome food and creative cocktails are the hallmark of Williams & Graham and we were blown away by both on Sunday night. Spacing is managed well and while we miss the crowds it was nice to still have the W&G vibe. Make a reservation and go! Don’t miss the falafel salad! Well done W&G and welcome back!

We (my wife and I) had a reservation for 5:15pm to have drinks and an appetizer before going elsewhere. We were immediately seated at the bar (which was perfectly OK since we enjoy watching the bartenders do their craft). The bartenders and waitress were all wearing masks, and social distancing between seats was being followed appropriately.

The ambiance is really cool. It really reminds you of what a true speakeasy must have been like. Kenny, our bartender, recommended the perfect cocktails and was attentive and friendly. We would highly recommend having a reservation to avoid a long wait.

We will definitely go back.

Williams & Graham is a fun speakeasy/secret bar that you should definitely check out if you visit Denver. They do require reservations and the entrance is inside a fake bookstore.

We were sat at the bar and were happy to see several COVID-19 precautions such as facemasks and plastic barriers between guests and the bartenders. Unfortunately we had already eaten dinner, but the menu looked amazing.

We were given two starter drinks (for free) while we perused the menu. We ended up getting two cocktails and they were decent. We aren't alcohol connoisseurs so the flavor profiles and "fanciness" of the drink were lost on us. Overall, the drinks are a bit pricey and are not worth the value unless you like unique cocktails.

We ended up getting a dessert that ended up just being peach ice cream with a cake. The combo was great, but did not match the menu description.

Amazon Drinks and Food. I had the Hummus appetizer, mac & Cheese (to die for) and the Pork Shoulder steak. Finished it off with sharing the peach dessert with my wife. Had a amazing scotch drink called the Pennecillin... if you like Scotch, this drink is the way to go. W&G is one of Denver's best kept secrets.
