Construction on fifth location is planned for January 2020
Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley alongside Riot Hospitality (RHG) reveal plans for a Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Denver, CO marking the fifth location nationwide. With construction set to begin in January 2020, the new location will takeover the downtown area’s historic 1942-1946 Market St. as design improvements will be made to preserve and enhance the significance of the buildings. The two-story infill structure will include an extended patio and rooftop addition with a grand opening to be revealed at a later date.
“Every Whiskey Row is located in a city and state that is very special to me. Our first one opened in my hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona six years ago and our most recent location is in my adopted hometown of Nashville, TN,” Bentley shares. “I couldn’t be more excited about Whiskey Row now having a home in Denver as well. Colorado has always been a big part of my life and continues to be so as a place where I write and record music, spend time with family and put on our Seven Peaks Festival. Selfishly, opening a Whiskey Row there just gives me more excuses to head to the mountains!”
Each Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row is a live-music restaurant and bar serving familiar “American Gastropub Fare type cuisine with a modern twist.” With three existing locations in Arizona and one on Nashville’s historic Lower Broadway, Whiskey Rows combine interactive entertainment, signature dishes and memorable beverages.
Bentley and Ryan Hibbert, CEO and Managing Partner of Riot Hospitality Group joint ventured on the project with MCSV Holdings I, LLC, and Denver-based Circle West Architects on the design. MCSV Holdings I, LLC is a partnership between Kenneth Monfort of Monfort Companies and Jason Marcotte and Matt Runyon of Summit Capital Venture Group.
Pegged as “one of country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes), Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion overall digital streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on The Mountain, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACMs, CMAs, Billboard Music Awards, and GRAMMYs while being currently nominated for CMA “Male Vocalist of the Year,” “Single of the Year” and “Music Video of the Year.” He has created other professional endeavors outside of the music industry in addition to Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row including his Desert Sun lifestyle collection.
