Marlowe’s, the downtown Denver steakhouse in operation since 1982, will close on December 22, restaurant ownership confirmed.

Marlowe’s, at 501 16th St., is owned by Premier Ventures, Inc., as are Paramount Cafe, which had its last day of business on Sunday, Sept. 2, as well as Capitol Hill restaurants Lala’s, closing Dec. 23, and Govnr’s Park, open since 1976 and closing Nov. 11.

Mike Plancarte and John Ott, owners of Premier Ventures, sent a statement in response to a call from Denverite.

“We could not have thrived for so many years without our community, many of whom we consider friends. We recognize the impression these restaurants have left in Denver so we wanted to give as much notice as possible.”
