It was only a few weeks after the iconic Lancer Lounge shuttered in late October when well-known chef and proprietor Frank Bonanno announced he’d open the Vesper Lounge in its place.

The Denver community celebrates a healthy lifestyle and we are excited to bring that same opportunity to the pets that live, grow and thrive here.”
