How does this place compare to Yard House?  It seems like fewer beers on tap, more bottles for WoB.


There is waaaaaaaay too much stuff crammed into this new development.  Cherry Creek Drive and Exposition Avenue cannot handle the amount of traffic now that City Set is open.  It's already bad over there with the new King Soopers and Sam's #3 nearby, and this will make the whole area a disaster.

Lots of great beer, but no food. ;(

@avs1cupGod, you really put the "waaaaaa" into that whine about traffic. Seems like any time a new place opens up, one of the first comments is about traffic or parking.


@avs1cup Not only that, but that entire development should have been built further south, adjacent to the RTD light-rail stop.

Which light rail stop?  There's no space available adjacent to any light rail stops south of Glendale that already isn't already spoken for.
