Denver’s Old Air Traffic Control Tower Will Soon Re-Open As A Restaurant And It Looks Amazing

The old Stapleton International Airport’s air traffic control tower, which has stood vacant for more than 20 years, will soon come back to life as the new home to Denver’s second Punch Bowl Social location. This iconic structure has been given a new purpose, but its historic character has been preserved in the remodeling process. The end result will be a one-of-a-kind experience where you can eat, drink, and be merry all under one (historic) roof.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Stapleton site will be the 10th Punch Bowl Social to open in the nation, with other locations including Portland, Detroit, and Cleveland. A handful of new locations are on the books to pop up in other cities soon.
