5 Denver Spots for Deal-Closing Drinks
Three-martini lunches might not be a thing anymore, but business over drinks still is. Here are five spots in Denver for discussing or even doing real estate deals (those classy written-on-the-back-of-a-napkin deals). Tip of the hat to NGKF managing director Andrew Blaustein for some suggestions.
