If you pay careful attention to the subtext of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, you'll learn that everything is better miniature. Today's Groupon gets you $50 worth of fresh fare and drinks at miniBar for $25. The eclectic eatery specializes in artful entrees served with creative pours, and contrary to what its name suggests, all of its drinks and exits are regular size.
Belly up to the bar or kick back in marshmallow-like sofas and prep your palate with a specialty sip. MiniBar's inventive cocktail menu includes everything from mouth-watering martinis (try the miniBar'tini with Grey Goose L'Orange vodka, citrange, white cranberry, and a spritz of lime, $8) or a bubbly miniBar bellini (Lunetta prosecco, white-peach puree, and peach schnapps, $6). Small plates such as the spiced nuts (coated with kicky Cajun spices) or bacon-wrapped medjool dates are prime for sharing (served 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., start at $5 for one item). MiniBar also features a well-edited selection of salads, dips, and cheese plates to satisfy more intense cravings. Try the caprese salad ($9), flatbread and dips ($8), or the barbecue baby back ribs ($11).
Watermelon-hued walls, sheer white curtains, and a well-coiffed crowd make the Denver hot spot feel worthy of a Vegas address and a New York telephone number. Bask outside in the summer months on the expansive patio, unwind with friends after a long week, or hit up the lounge for a swanky lunch.
- Opened in early May, Minibar feels like it should be in Scottsdale or Las Vegas. Everyone seems to be tan and coiffed, BlackBerrys at the ready in case a waxing emergency should arise. But, unlike in those hot spots, there's a relaxed, distinctly Denver attitude that makes Minibar pleasant enough for anyone who bellies up to the bar…The feel is clubby, urban and proudly egalitarian. – Kathleen St. John, Denver Post
Seven Yelpers give it four stars:
- I go to miniBar on a regular basis and every time I go, I try something new on their menu and have never been disappointed. – JEN S.
