The One Shot Back indoor golf simulator and cocktail bar opened earlier this month at 2134 Curtis St. in Denver, according to a press release.
The bar uses TrackMan golf course simulators with “over 130 courses and games for golfers of all skill levels with technology the pros trust,” the statement said.
“Having worked in the industry for over a decade each, we knew we wanted to create a bar experience where everyone can come in, feel welcome into our home, and most importantly, have fun,” Samantha Menendez, who co-founded One Shot Back with Jason Danielsen, said in the statement.
“We saw a gap in the market. With demand growing during the pandemic, similar established concepts were often sold out, not conveniently located downtown, or appeared to be reserved for experienced golfers,” Danielsen said in the statement. “We realized that if we wanted a place that had everything we were looking for, it was time for us to try and make it ourselves.”
Customers can book reservations on one of two simulators or an individual lesson with a trainer. For more information, visit the company’s website at oneshotback.com.
Riot Hospitality Group, which recently opened Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in the Ballpark neighborhood of Denver, plans to open a restaurant and bar named Riot House next door, 1920 Market St., according to a press release.
Riot Hospitality officials, along with Monfort Companies and MAR Ventures, plan to revamp the 21,000-square-foot building with “a large central bar, dance floor, rooftop terrace, and world-class audiovisual system.”
This is the second Riot House, the first being in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Riot Hospitality’s 12th location.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Riot Hospitality Group to bring another unique entertainment offering to Denver and its Ballpark neighborhood,” Kenneth Monfort, executive vice president of Monfort Companies, said in the release. “Like Whiskey Row, Riot House will bring an elevated nightlife offering to the area, contributing to a broader vision to transform the neighborhood into a vibrant destination for entertainment.”
Construction should begin at the end of the year and should last 10 to 12 months.
Monfort Companies has been busy in the Ballpark neighborhood after opening McGregor Square across from Coors Field in 2021. Earlier this month the company sold the Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row building to local property investor Jim Blumenthal, but it continues to rent and operate it with Riot Support Group. The company has partnered with Magnetic Capital to bring the Howl at the Moon piano bar back to 2100 Larimer St., with an expected fall opening.
