The Denver Wrangler
If you’re in the Halloween spirit then you may want to check out the costumes at the Denver Wrangler… because they know how to throw a party! Not only does this bar host world class DJs, incredible drink specials, and private events, but they have also been giving back to the LGBT community since 1997. With the help from Legendary Charity Beer Busts, over $780,000 has been donated to local LGBT organizations.
Owner, Chris Dawkins, recently moved the establishment from the Uptown area of Denver to the quickly growing Whittier neighborhood. Relocating to a larger space has already been a proven hit for Chris and his business. With nearly three times the square footage both inside and out, the Denver Wrangler has increased revenues compared to the same time period as previous years. This success can in part be attributed to the partnership between Martin Mahalchick of JP Morgan Chase Bank and Colorado Lending Source. Utilizing the Small Business Administration 504 loan program, Chris was able to expand the Denver Wrangler by purchasing commercial real estate less than two miles from the original location, and as a result, helped to create five new jobs.
