With the opening of Le Méridien & AC Hotel in downtown Denver comes the opening of 54thirty, now the highest patio bar in the city.

The name, of course, is a reference to its elevation. The bar sits on the 20th floor of the hotel at 1475 California St., putting it at about 5,430 feet above sea level.

Hours are 4-11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 3 p.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday and 3-10 p.m. Sunday. It’s open seasonally, so you’ve still got time to take your parents and visiting friends up there in 2017.
