The Cruise Room

Historic Art Deco Bar Opened The Day After Prohibition Was Repealed In 1933

Unearthed inside the Oxford Hotel in 1980 by Denver developer Dana Crawford, the space was discovered untouched. The design is modeled after a lounge on the Queen Mary, and features carved bas-relief wall panels of international revelers created by Denver artist Alley Henson in 1930. As long time Denver residents, we are honored to be responsible for restoring this magical place. The look is the same; we chose to elevate the finishes to a more luxurious version. We switched plastic laminate to quartz, and vinyl to leather, elevating history with the lift of a martini glass.
