Ditch the boring dinner party or networking hour and join us on a Market and Food Hall tour in the heart of downtown Denver.

This two-hour roving food and drinks experience is perfect for large groups wanting to explore the Denver food scene while mixing and mingling. Moving from stop to stop and tasting new dishes along the way provides a unique experience sure to spark conversation and team bonding.

You’ll enjoy tastings at two of Denver’s most popular markets and food halls, two cocktail pairings and dessert. Tastings include Taiwanese Pork Belly Buns, Neapolitan Fired Pizza, Argentinian Empanadas, and Hand-made Pappardelle Bolognese.* Cocktails include a gin-based Prohibition era cocktail with a house-made lavender syrup and a Cranberry Basil Moscow Mule.

Local foodie guides accompany groups to provide information about the delicious tastings and chefs behind them. Groups visit Mile Post Zero and McGregor Square, and the Denver Milk Market on the Dairy Block and end with dessert inside the iconic and historic Union Station.

Our guides have a schedule but no script. You choose the level of information for your group: from basic tasting and location introductions (to maximize team bonding time) all the way to a full tour experience with tasting, food and city history.

*Tastings subject to change. Vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free options also available.

As all tastings are seated indoors, our tours run year-round in rain, snow or shine! We do recommend dressing appropriately for the short walks in between tastings.
In the event of extreme inclement weather (hail storms, major snow storms, etc.), we may cancel a tour and offer the option to move to another day or accept a full refund. In our six years of operation we have needed to exercise this option fewer than five times.
