Linger: From Mortuary to Global Street Food
Tucked away in the heart of Denver’s Lower Highlands (LoHi) neighborhood sits Linger, an eclectic restaurant and bar that brings together global street food, craft cocktails, and a unique backstory.
Linger is housed in a historic building that was once a mortuary and funeral parlor, and still retains some of its original elements, including the embalming room and the family lounge. While this may sound a bit macabre, the building has been transformed into a lively restaurant with an atmosphere that is anything but somber.
The food at Linger is a creative blend of global flavors and street food-inspired dishes. The menu features small plates like Korean Fried Cauliflower and Chinese Chicken Salad, and larger plates like the Cuban Sandwich and Bahn Mi Tacos. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the Churro Donuts or the Smoked S’mores.
The bar at Linger offers an impressive selection of craft cocktails, beer, and wine, as well as a range of non-alcoholic drinks. The cocktail menu features creative concoctions like the Linger Mule, made with vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and bitters, and the La Paloma, made with tequila, grapefruit soda, and lime juice.
Linger’s unique atmosphere and delicious food make it a great choice for a night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two. Whether you’re looking for a fun place to grab a bite or a unique experience to share with someone special, Linger is sure to please.
