Hush has a deadline of 5 p.m. today to object to liquor-license denial

Don't put on your dancing shoes yet, Creekers. After an epic, hours-long liquor-license hearing March 25 at the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses, Michael Olsen's plans to put a version of his Hush nightclub into the subterranean space at 250 Steele Street seem doomed.

Olsen has until the close of business today to file objections to the tentative denial of that license application -- but with the neighbors lined up in opposition to a nightclub in the area, it's unlikely that the city would change its ruling.

Wow, Cherry Creek residents are naive. The commercial property vacancy rate in that neighborhood is 17%. A nightclub would be better for their property values than another vacancy. I also recently read how the neighbors are fighting the implementation of an upscale hotel at 3rd and Milwaukee. I suppose overpriced rent and anal residents are why all good new bars/restaurants open in the Highlands and nobody under 50 goes to Cherry Creek anymore.

All in all, it's probably a blessing in disguise for Olsen. I doubt CC residents would have left their narrow comfort zones of Elway's or Second Home to dance at Hush.
