Denver Bicycle Café’s bar is transforming from a beer bar to an everything bar.

Co-owners Jessica Caouette and Peter Roper are re-opening their space on the corner of 17th Avenue and Lafayette Street — currently known as the DBC Beer Hall — as Tandem Bar on March 23. With the new brand will come a new focus on Colorado spirits, but don’t worry, they’ll still serve Colorado craft beer.

“The beer list will remain excellent,” Caouette said in an announcement, “but I really am excited to bring in a well-thought-out, Colorado-focused spirit program with great cocktails.”

Cauoette and Roper are expecting final approval from the city this week and will close the Beer Hall on Sunday to finish remodeling. The new look will include a mural by local artist Heath O’Campo.

Denver Bicycle Café opened in 2011 and later expanded into the bike shop and bar next door as business grew. Roper took over management of the bike and coffee shop last year and Caouette took over the Beer Hall.

Details about Tandem Bar’s grand opening will be posted to Denver Bicycle Café’s social channels.
