You’ll Never Forget A Meal At One Of The Most Unique Restaurants In Denver
The Downtown Aquarium might not be your first thought when searching for an unforgettable Denver dining experience, but as soon as you walk through the doors of their restaurant, you will clearly see that a dining adventure awaits inside. So, grab a menu and dive into the Aquarium Restaurant’s unbeatable atmosphere and epic food selections.
This restaurant is located inside the Downtown Aquarium. It can found at 700 Water Street in Denver, CO 80211.
If you need to work up an appetite first, take a stroll around the aquarium's more than one million gallons of underwater exhibits that include over 500 species of animals.
Before dinner, you may want to stop for a drink at the Dive Lounge, found on the first floor.
This upscale bar is anything but a dive, and is a wonderful start to visitor's "out to sea" experience.
Try to catch the Dive Lounge's happy hour from 3-7 p.m. each weekday.
They offer specials on "munchies" like beef sliders with cheese or Ahi tuna tacos. You can also order a margarita or martini for $4 or a domestic draft beer for $3 during this happy hour.
Once you enter the restaurant, you will immediately notice the 50,000 gallon centerpiece aquarium.
No matter where the hostess seats you, you're in luck, as each and every table in the restaurant offers excellent views of the floor to ceiling aquarium.
As you dine, you will marvel at the over 100 species of colorful tropical fish from the Caribbean Sea, Hawaii, South Pacific, and Indian Ocean that are swimming around in the tank.
Not only is this restaurant a feast for the eyes, but just wait until you get a glimpse of their menu.
You may want to start off with an appetizer like these Shrimp Wontons.
The menu, of course, spotlights their fresh seafood selections like the Kale & Red Quinoa Salad with Shrimp.
Or the classic fish and chips with a side of coleslaw.
Even though seafood is the star of the show, the Aquarium Restaurant also serves up mouth-watering steaks, hamburgers, and pasta as well.
You'll want to save room for dessert with a little sea creature flair.
If you time things right, you might even get to enjoy a live mermaid show as they swim around with the fish in the aquarium.
The Dive Lounge and Aquarium Restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. and on Friday and Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.
