If you couldn’t tell from its name, the Tavern has a full bar to complement its chophouse repertoire. Cocktails skew classic, from Manhattans and margaritas to stingers and sidecars. The beer selection befits the meaty cuisine — there are porters, stouts, brown ales and a few Colorado offerings. A select wine list emphasizes domestic labels, including all the expected California chardonnays and cabernets, as well as other surf-and-turf-friendly pours: sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, malbec. And of course there’s single-malt Scotch and bourbon, so you can start your meal the way the movers and shakers of mid-20th-century supper clubs did. To end your visit — that is, if your stomach can handle it — try one of the restaurant’s signature after-dinner drinks, such as the nutty Irishman, with Baileys Irish Cream and Frangelico served on the rocks, or the Tavern coffee, spiked with amaretto, brandy and whipped cream.
Tavern has a bar that is located in the main Tavern Room near the music and dance floor, adjacent to the open kitchen.
