Do not park in the lot across the street,
as your car will most likely be towed.
At The Populist we firmly believe that dining is a communal act. Owners Jonathan Power, Noah Price, and Cliff White strive to emphasize this philosophy at every turn. From the numerous community tables to the nature and construction of the dishes on the menu: sharing your environment and your food is emphatically supported. Chef Power presents a regularly changing lineup of New American small plates that both excite and challenge diners. An approachable but nuanced wine list brings excellent bottles from lesser known winemakers to the table. And the cocktail list --featuring both classic and contemporary variations-- drives home the point that this intimate eatery seeks to provide a unique and memorable experience in the burgeoning Denver dining scene.
The majority of our dining room, including the patio and bar, is available for walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis. Please speak with the host at the door, who will either seat you immediately or put you on the evening's wait list.
We do take a limited number of reservations each evening. Please make your reservation through OpenTable below, or call our host at 720-432-3163.
