Gaslamp ready to light up on Market Street
Gallagher put the extra time to good use: The space, which is under the original Westword office at 1439 Market, has held offices, a futon store, even an adult toy store back in the '70s, but it required a major remodel to turn into this sleek restaurant/bar. He had to find a name for the place (the Gaslamp is not related to Lakewood's now-snuffed Gaslamp Grill;the original liquor-license application for this space simply called it "Ten.") And Gallagher, who also owns the nearby Front Porch, had to work out a "good neighbor" agreement with LoDo residents concerned about the number of liquor licenses in the area.
Now they can start worrying about the number of dispensaries in the area instead: Down the street at 1400 Market, Farmacy is taking over the old Buca de Beppo space. That should make Gaslamp's future on the block look a lot brighter.
