A Tribute To Our Roots
Before prohibition hit America, barmen were busy crafting artisan cocktails with high quality ingredients, paving the path for the specialty cocktails we all enjoy today. However, prohibition put an unfortunate pause in the progression of the craft, forcing the best and brightest barmen abroad to pursue their passion overseas, and effectively halting craft beverage creation here in America.
Union Lodge No. 1 pays homage to these history-making barmen by emulating their craft in an attempt to bring our Denver specialty cocktail bar back to the golden age of craft drink creation. While cocktail bars are still recovering from the effects of the prohibition era, we are proud to hold ourselves to the highest standards as we forge ahead towards the future.
We understand that it is only through an immense respect for the history of our craft, and thoughtful dedication to the methods pioneered by those late 19th century barmen, that we can begin to reclaim what was lost.
