Dierks Bentley is making plans to open a fifth location of his Whiskey Row “live-music restaurant and bar,” this time setting his sights on Denver, Colorado.

Partnering again with Riot Hospitality, Bentley’s newest Whiskey Row will sit right in the middle of downtown Denver’s historic 1942-1946 Market Street, with a design intended to “preserve and enhance” the surrounding area’s classic charm. A artist’s rendering of the two-story building has been released showing a street-level patio and sheltered rooftop addition, and its grand opening is set to be revealed at a later date.

“Every Whiskey Row is located in a city and state that is very special to me. Our first one opened in my hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona six years ago and our most recent location is in my adopted hometown of Nashville, TN,” Bentley said. “I couldn’t be more excited about Whiskey Row now having a home in Denver as well. Colorado has always been a big part of my life and continues to be so as a place where I write and record music, spend time with family and put on our Seven Peaks Festival. Selfishly, opening a Whiskey Row there just gives me more excuses to head to the mountains!”

Construction on Denver’s Whiskey Row is set to begin in January 2020, and Bentley’s other Whiskey Row locations include three cities in Arizona (Scottsdale, Tempe and Gilbert) plus downtown Nashville, with each serving familiar “American Gastropub Fare type cuisine with a modern twist.”
