When David Burke Kitchen opens in March, its downstairs cousin will offer a new bar and lounge to Aspen nightlife. Huckleberry Hall, owned by David Burke Group, is set to be a subterranean bar where “industrial cool” meets “rustic warmth,” according to a press release. Its name pays homage to Colorado’s wild huckleberries, and to Doc Holliday’s “I’ll be your huckleberry” quote. Both establishments are part of a building redevelopment in downtown Aspen on Hopkins Avenue.
Signature cocktails include the Honey Badger with Spring 44 Honey Vodka, lemon, cinnamon and apple-honey syrup, black pepper; the Rabbit Hunter made with Bulliet Bourbon, fresh mint, lime, and Fever Tree natural ginger beer, or the Tequila Mockingbird with Don Julio Blanco, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, basil syrup, Aperol and sugared basil. Huckleberry Hall will also serve small plates by Executive Chef Matthew O’Neill.
“Having spent time in Aspen many times over the past few years, I am always immediately drawn to the landscape every time I touch down,” says chef and owner David Burke. “The town is full of festivities, in such a beautiful setting which I am very excited to be a part of. It is sensational to open my very own upscale nightlife venue in such a setting. With great beverages, great snacks it will be the perfect place to hang with friends and for private events throughout the year as well.”
David Burke Kitchen and Huckleberry Hall are set to open in March. David Burke is a nationally renown chef with restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Chicago.
