Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep Westword’s future free.
The unlikely combination of facial hair and cream-filled pastries has worked at Beard Papa’s, which has grown to more than 400 locations worldwide since opening in Japan in 1999. Now you can get a messy bite of the company’s cream puffs in its first Denver location, which is open 11am to 9pm daily.
Ambli Mexico, the spin-off of the original Ambli at 600 Holly Street south of the border, closed down after two years at that location last fall, but with a promise to return. That day has come and Ambli Mexico is now serving in Aurora’s Fitzsimons neighborhood at 2101 Ursula Street. Join us Monday through Saturday from 4:30 pm to 9:30 pm for dinner and lunch from 11:00 am on Friday.
And after the 3Kilts Tavern abandoned downtown and went on pandemic hiatus, it officially reopened in its new location at 1076 Ogden Street on February 5th.

Keep Westword Free … Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we want to keep it that way. We offer our readers free access to concise coverage of local news, food and culture. Produce stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands with bold reporting, stylish writing, and staff who have won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi Feature-Writing Award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism . With the existence of local journalism under siege and setbacks having a greater impact on advertising revenue, it is more important than ever for us to raise support for funding our local journalism. You can help by joining our “I Support” membership program which allows us to continue to cover Denver without paywalls.
