Apparently the cruise room is something of an institution in Denver and it did not disappoint. Very happy to have made the effort coming for drinks.

My favorite Denver bar: historic location, cool vibe that comes from age (not a hipster catalog) and great tasting cocktails expertly crafted.

The Cruise Room is a cute retro type bar in the Oxford Hotel. The French 75 & Gimlets were good. While this will sound like a nit, we sat at our table for fifteen minutes waiting for the arrogant bartender to take our order. We...More

We had a quick drink just before dinner. Pretty cool bar but I would change the lights, in my opinion they don’t fit the great Art Deco decor . The drinks were great and the service outstanding.

Great vibe! Great drinks! Timeless Denver classic and a must have stop for a drink or two. Get there early for happy hour or hit it for a late night drink.

We always go to the Cruise Room bar to end our day and just love it. The menu has been updated since our last visit and it’s just a great way to end the evening.

So this restaurant (inside of Oxford Hotel) has an old school jazzy vibe. It is the first bar to have opened in Denver after prohibition ended. It has a single long bar and a row of booths...that's it. We got lucky and secured the last...More
