Readers: If you're young, you can party downtown. And if you're older...?

Categories: Cafe Society

Hush founder Michael Olsen's attempt to get a liquor license for 250 Steele Street -- where he'd like to open a more adult version of Hush, geared to the Cherry Creek crowd, in the former home of Tambien -- has met with some opposition, leading to a many-hour-long hearing last Friday and comments such as this from JC:

I have no desire in seeing the downtown party crowd being enticed to a predominantly residential neighborhood.

Then again, there's plenty of demand for a dance club for older patrons. Witness this post from dennish:

Where in the metro area is a good bar with a danceable combo for people over 60? Or do we have to move to Manhattan??

Any ideas?

Look for a decision on Olsen's license application for 250 Steele in the next two weeks.

The problem to me is that older people in Denver don't party, regardless of the neighborhood. Plus, ALL one syllable nightclubs in Denver become inundated with 21 year old $25,000 per year millionaires from Aurora after the first 6 months of opening (i.e. Plush, the other one syllable subterranean nightclub that lasted for about 2 years in Cherry Creek).

Anyway, I wouldn't choose to invest in Hush, but maybe they can make it work? They'll just have to do something more outside the box than Plush.
