Book Private Dining with Russell's Smokehouse
Russell’s Smokehouse, like its namesake Green Russell, pays tribute to the rich geographical history of the City of Denver and, more specifically, Larimer Square. The building foundation sits in a dried river bed, so we used rocks from that very bed to line the columns in the courtyard. The entryway doors come from Gahan’s Soft Drink Parlour - a 1920’s pop shop that used to occupy part of this space and the green windows are reclaimed stained glass from a Gold Rush era settlers’ church. Even the railing in the pie shop has Larimer history, at one time lining the stage in the Old Italian restaurant institution, Josephines.
While Green Russell focuses on the craft of the cocktail and the spirit of 1940’s cocktail culture, the Smokehouse is a nod to an earlier time, to the spirit of the West and the cowboy tradition of cooking over slow, low flame. Our specialty isn’t in the sauce (which is why we don’t call it barbeque), but in the rich smoke and the method of cooking the proteins.
