It's fun to dine inside a bank vault! Certainly one of the more unique dining venues we have experienced. Stopped for drinks and dinner after an event at the convention center. Staff were friendly, particularly the manager. Food was excellent! We'd go back!

The Denver Broker Restaurant is truly unique. It’s housed in the vault of an old bank and has been in operation since 1972. For Christmas this year, my partner and I decided to do events, rather than buying gifts. This dinner was one of his...More

My guy and I came here on a Groupon for date night. The Groupon was for a four-course prix fixe menu with 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert. Food was hit-or-miss. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was pretty standard and good. My entree was salmon on...More

The location was terrific. They served dinner inside a safe with a 23 ton door. The food was very good. The crab and lamb chops were terrific.

Bought a Groupon to try The Broker after hearing about it. Walking into a vault to dine was surreal after having worked in an actual bank. The setting could be romantic or casual which makes it a good place to dine. We had the shrimp...More

The Broker Restaurant is one of the oldest dining institutions in Denver. Located in the basement of what was once the Denver National Bank Building, this restaurant has become an international destination for old world dining. Prepare to indulge in a huge bowl of peel and eat Gulf shrimp that comes with every dinner entree. They are still famous for their elegant private dining and business dinners. Make sure to ask to tour the old vault and numerous private dining rooms.
