History & Whiskey Bus – Special
Denver’s History and Whiskey is the original Centennial Experience. We are proud of it, and wanted to create a special version for those that have yet to enjoy a ride on the Whiskey Wagon , and guests that prefer not to walk. Most of all, by popular demand, this tour allows a more diverse & robust whiskey tasting, and for those that are more into drinking than learning local history, this one is for you. Cheers!
Tour Starts at Denver’s Historic Union Station
******Meet outside, front & center – next to the flag pole & historic markers******
Join Rick for a private tour of our prestigious train depot. If it wasn’t for the line out of Cheyenne, stretching to this small western frontier town, Denver would be a ghost town.
NEXT STOP: EL CHAPULTEPEC
Not easy to pronounce, but “The Pec” as we call it, is a legendary Jazz bar. Originally, just a Mexican Cantina when it opened in 1933, but has since hosted the best Jazz musicians in American History.
We make a short stop here, and learn about the Jazz legends that have graced the stage, and we know you are thirsty for more whiskey, so it’s time to enjoy a Pec favorite, sweet Colorado bourbon!
NEXT STOP: 5-POINTS
Denver’s History and Whiskey Tour is the best way to explore the historic 5-points neighborhood. We explore the heart of the historic Beats area, and enjoy another tasty Denver-made whiskey. 5-points has an amazing history. Not only did Mammy from Gone with the Wind, live here, but James Brown performed, and Jack Kerouac wrote. In honor of the great writer, we will have a drink ourselves, and only the best post-prohibition/5-Points, bourbon will do.
NEXT STOP: PATTERSON INN
Most of the time hauntings are nothing like what we see in the movies. The Patterson Inn is the exception, and it is truly unexplainable why this place is so evil. We stop here tell the tale, and enjoy whiskey from Colorado’s first legal micro distillery. After all that whiskey maybe you will even see some “spirits.”
TOUR ENDS: UNION STATION
Don’t like whiskey? We’ve got you covered. The bus comes fully stocked with beer, and honey wine!
