Death & Co Logo

Opened on New Year's Eve 2006/07 in Manhattan's East Village, Death & Co quickly became a cocktail institution, owed greatly to its staff of creative bartenders and incredible servers. Since then, it has evolved and changed; from an intimate bar in NYC to a sprawling cocktail lounge and restaurant in Denver -- and, perhaps, more to come. Through this growth, Death & Co has maintained its commitment to fine product and exceptional experiences, a focus on hospitality, and a deep desire to be a center for its communities.
