With the grand dining atmosphere that you can find in Palace Arms, you’ll need a wine to match that royal style. Eric Perejda, wine sommelier at The Brown Palace, shares some great wines available during November.
As we say goodbye to another summer, the City of Denver will play host to a number of family friendly activities to send it out with a bang over this long Labor Day Weekend.

While we’re sad to see summer go, there’s nothing more enjoyable than a Colorado autumn when the leaves start to changes hues and the air is crisp and cold. When it gets chilly, don’t forget to warm up with a cup of tea at The Brown Palace….but for now, let’s celebrate these last few blissful days of summer.
It was nothing but VIP treatment for attendees at last night’s Brown Palace #PalacePreferred Tweetup as they caught a glimpse of what luxury hospitality is all about. Centered on our newly launched Palace Preferred program, guests experienced the perks of being a member, from discounts to free cocktails…and we had an absolute blast chatting with some wonderful people in the Denver community.
To being the evening, guests were greeted with a personal escort to the registration table where they began the evening’s sampling with a glass of champagne. In the Atrium Lobby, a live Jazz band entertained, and signature cocktails began to flow including The Brown Palace Rhuberry crafted from local ingredients: Leopold’s Silver Tree Vodka, Leopold’s Rocky Mountain Blackberry Liquor and a spoonful of Honeyville’s Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup from Durango. Guests were also offered a sampling from the wine and cheese cart and of course, bananas foster. (Which is, if you haven’t tried it, to die for!)
Throughout the rest of the hotel, there was plenty more for attendees to experience from each of the outlets including micro-brews and prime rib at Ship Tavern, crab cakes prepared fresh by Chef Thanawat outside Palace Arms, delightful desserts paired with piano music and presented by Pastry Chef David in Ellyington’s, and tours of the spa with complimentary seated massages to round out the evening.
We were so thrilled to have so many local Tweeps attend and we thank you for coming out! In case you missed out, follow the #palacepreferred hashtag or view our photo album to see what all of the fuss is about.
You’re a whiz in the kitchen, your meals are absolutely mouthwatering and ideas for creative and innovative recipes using fresh ingredients seem to just pop into your brain.

Executive Chef William Dexter takes a break from creating culinary masterpieces to give us the scoop on his top ingredients to use, favorite dishes to create, and some background on his time at The Brown Palace.

No matter how much beauty sleep you may have gotten, sometimes we need that extra pick me up to get ready to take on the morning. With a convenient location directly inside the main entrance of the hotel, let Brown Palace Coffee & Tea Co. be your one stop java shop, offering plenty of piping hot beverages and treats to perk you right up. Sip and savor a rich and flavorful mocha or grab our signature orange banana blueberry smoothie to go. If you’re craving a sweet treat, we also serve an array of house-made pastries and baked goods like luscious lemon bars, mouthwatering muffins and simply divine danishes, (and that’s just naming a few). An offering of books are also available from Tattered Cover, a local independent bookstore, for some reading to accompany your selection.
If you’re more of an afternoon person, feel free to stop by and try our warm French baguettes, sold Fridays and Saturdays, 4-6 p.m. Morning or night, with delicious coffee and to-die for desserts, you just can’t go wrong.
