Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen is a really cool spot to grab some food or just chill after a weekend in the mountains. We stopped by to have dinner before our flight back to California and I was impressed by the decor, service, food and beer selection.
Euclid Hall is a two story building with a bar area on the first floor. It has a main dining room and a full bar on the second floor. It’s in downtown Denver and right next door to the Colorado State building. The old brick building had charm to it along with the Denver downtown area with its old vintage buildings built with bricks. Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen Denver
We packed up our gear at the rental. We started to head into town after a quick stop at the Outlets at Silverthorne. It took a little more than an hour to get to downtown Denver; but when we got there it was empty and parking was abundant. The streets with a few cars parked and lights hanging from buildings had a really festive feel to them. Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen Denver
We crossed the street. The hostess greeted us then seated upstairs. We were starving and need some comfort food with some beers. We quickly scan the menu to notice the diverse offering from Asian theme dishes to some American comfort food like fried chicken. Euclid Hall had a really good beer menu with a large selection of local craft beers. Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen Denver
The service was accommodating for our large group. The waitress was full of recommendations and pointed out some of their more popular dishes. Our beers and waters were always filled to the rim. Everything came out in a reasonable amount of time and the dining experience didn’t take more than 1.5 hours. We were glad cause we only had 3 hours until our flight departed back to Los Angeles.

Now, the food. The menu seemed to have many influences to it and the dishes we ordered had all Asian flavors minus a few. Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen Denver
- Chicken & Waffles – The Chicken & Waffles consist of chicken schnitzel, sourdough waffle, pure maple syrup, and salty walnuts. The chicken schnitzel was plump, juicy and savory. It came out piping hot and wasn’t dry at all. The sourdough waffle went well with the maple syrup and provided a good contrast between sour and sweet. Well, that’s the impression I got from the leftover syrup I spilled all over the table.
- Pork Belly Ramen – This was interesting and not your traditional Japanese ramen. This was made with celery root noodles, rice noodles, pork broth, pickled beech mushrooms, napa cabbage, shallots, egg yolk, micro cilantro and pork belly. We were expecting the traditional ramen where you slurp but this was a different take on an old tradition. The rice noodles resembled vermicelli in texture and taste. There wasn’t a significant amount of broth and it seemed to be added just for flavor. The pork belly was great. It was served in a big chuck. It seemed like it was braised due to the tenderness, juiciness and how it tore apart easily.
- Thai Style Mussels – The mussels included IPA, kaffir lime and lemon grass infused with coconut milk, Thai basil, chili and shallots. The mussels had a really nice color with a sweet flavor to them. The broth/sauce was very milky and the flavors of the coconut dominated the dish. It reminds me of Coconut Thai Curry because it had the milky coconut flavors. The mussels wasn’t over cooked and teared apart from the shell very easily. It was definitely a good dish.
Overall, I definitely enjoyed the meal, the service and the beer selection. I wasn’t expecting much from Euclid because I don’t think anyone in the world would consider Denver a melting pot of culinary achievements. However, I would definitely recommend Euclid Hall for good old fashion flavorful comfort food. Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen Denver
