Cigar Road-Trip #IPCPR2018. Brown Palace Hotel. Part II

July 2018. After spending a bit of time in the wonderland of the Beatles Suite it was time for dinner, so I ventured to the main floor of the Brown Palace Hotel to enjoy a hot meal at their famed Tavern restaurant.

Since it was a Sunday night the seating was plentiful – there really wasn’t too much of a crowd in the Tavern just after 4pm.
I liked the bright colours of the tavern and the staff was very helpful & friendly.
The steak dinner I ordered was delicious – with fingerling potatoes and fresh asparagus … it was just perfect!

After that satisfying meal it was time for an after-dinner cigar at the Palace Arms Churchill Bar.

Churchill Bar was really busy when I walked in.
There was only a couple of tables available so I settled into a table in the centre of the room.
Please note that for privacy reasons, I didn’t take any photos while there were other identifiable patrons in the room.

The bartender, Ibrahima, arrived to my table with a drinks menu and then escorted me to the hotel humidor where I selected an AVO cigar.

As Ibrahima was expertly lighting my AVO cigar, I decided on a glass of Bourbon from the extensive Spirits menu.
I was absolutely impressed with the cigar & whiskey knowledge Ibrahima communicated.
Without a doubt, he was an absolute professional cigar sommelier & whiskey connoisseur.
It was a real pleasure listening to his calm demeanour as he described the cigar humidor & the selection of spirits.

Overall, the visit to the Churchill Bar in the Brown Palace Hotel was a a really nice way to spend the evening.

As I headed back to the Beatles Suite for a good nights rest, I stopped by the fountain to refill my water bottle.
This hotel is very proud of their well-water supply.
There was a plaque honouring the Natural Artesian Water.

As well as plaques showcasing the hotel numerous awards:

If you’re planning a trip to Denver, Colorado, I highly recommend the Brown Palace Hotel & Spa.
