Appaloosa Bar and Grill

Details

Menu Price: $25.00

Appaloosa Grill a.k.a “The Horse” is an American/World traditional restaurant and live music venue on the 16th Street Mall in the downtown Denver business district. The Horse was originally the vision of the former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and was established in April 2001. In July 2005, Oakhurst band members/employees Johnny James Qualley & Adam Hill purchased the restaurant and have since sold interest to other employees; Mark Kline (Bar Manager), Mattè Copeland (AGM), and Guy Faulkner (Talent Buyer).

Appaloosa Grill is proud to serve fresh, high quality all natural proteins and uses organic produce when and wherever possible. Everything is made from scratch, right down to the ketchup! Chef Francisco Quintana has created a menu that features a wide variety of comfort foods as well as a large selection of vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options.
