Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row Bar and Music Venue Set for New Year’s Eve Opening in Denver

by Jonathan Howard

Dierks Bentley is expanding his Whiskey Row Bar franchise with its fourth location nationwide. The new location in Denver will be in LoDo.

For those that have been to downtown Nashville, you might have seen or been to Bentley’s bar there. He also has two Arizona locations in Scottsdale and Gilbert. So, it’s safe to say that Dierks and his team have done this before. It appears they know what they’re doing.

The new bar will be 22,000 square feet and located at 1946 Market Street in Denver. It was formerly Lodo’s Bar and Grill and there was a neighboring pop-up bar briefly at the location as well. The original plans for the bar came over two years ago. However, with the pandemic, there were multiple delays.

Of course, the building is going to be updated and renovated throughout. There has been a stage added for live music, the sound system was upgraded, and there is a 65-foot LED wall set up to improve live performances. So, they have just about thought of everything.

Dierks Bentley has performed at his Whiskey Row locations in the past. However, it might not be something the Denver location sees for a bit. When the bar officially opens on New Year’s Eve Bentley will be busy performing in Nashville for the end of the year celebration.

This year CBS decided to bring some country to the New Year’s Eve celebration. The network hasn’t hosted an event on the last day of the year for quite a long time. So, they are pulling out all the stops with some of the biggest stars in country music playing in Nashville. That includes Dierks Bentley.

The CBS special has a lot of folks excited. The central time zone doesn’t get a lot of love when it comes to the holiday. However, that all changes this year. We are just a day away from the big event. So, what does Whiskey Row’s Bentley think about it?

“When I found out that this big CBS special is happening in my adopted hometown in Nashville, I really wanted to be part of it. Because it’s a special moment for the city. It’s a special moment for country music,” the singer said to Taste of Country.

“I definitely want to make the show tailored to New Year’s Eve and that vibe,” he continued. “I really want to bring the part and make it fun. And especially if it’s cold out there, keep it up tempo. I’m sure I’ll probably intro some songs with New Year’s Eve in mind.”

Dierks Bentley is also set on fulfilling his resolution in the new year. He’s finally going to finish that album he’s been working on. Keep your fingers crossed, fans.
