Lounging with Chloe
New club changes up Denver’s nightlife
Published: Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Updated: Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Downtown Denver is known for having great nightlife—whether it’s a full dance club, a bar with pizza and televisions throughout, or a patio with pool tables. One of its newest additions is Chloe, the garden/bar/mezze/club that opened on July 21 and will most likely attract anyone who’s looking for a great place to enjoy the night, inside or out.
A sister lounge of Suite 200 and Beta Nightclub, the lush fabrics and colors give the sophisticated scene a very calming and relaxing feel that seems high-class without breaking your budget.
Ladies are always let in without a cover, but the guys are required to purchase a $20 drink card that gets them in the club. Chloe rotates around 3,000 people every weekend. Don’t worry, though. The wait to get into Chloe is usually only five minutes, so there’s probably never a time that you’d get turned away.
The name Chloe isn’t just one they chose for the place without explanation, but it names the fictional character that Chloe represents. This socialite character supposedly traveled all over the world, was raised in the south of France, traveled to Greece and Spain, and later moved to New York with her family. Chloe makes the club stand out because it isn’t just a club, but also an ongoing story.
This is all apparent while walking through all of the different spaces. An array of artwork decorates the walls throughout and there’s even a giant LED wall that greets you in numerous languages as you hang out in the club.
Stephanie Maxwell, marketing director at Lotus Concepts, explained the hype Chloe receives and why Denver is the perfect location for it. “I feel like Denver wanted a lounge scene,” she said. “There was nothing really like it until now.”
Maxwell said that Denver was crying out for a lounge scene that would attract those who don’t want to go to the average club. But Chloe isn’t just a club; it has an outdoor garden, a full bar, and dining area, which includes amezze—Chloe’s spot for their adaption of Greek and Mediterranean tapas. The club, which is open at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, is where you’ll find most of the Chloe-goers throughout the evening.
In the club, there are two bars, 20 VIP only tables, and room to dance the night away. For $1000, one of those private tables can be purchased for the evening. This includes three bottles of alcohol, the mixers that go with it, and the flashy statement you’ll own for the night. If you don’t reserve one, there’s still a chance you’ll be called over to join someone else’s, but that’s probably due to the outfit you choose to wear and how good of a dancer you are.
Once on the dance floor, the ceiling grabs your attention with color-changing LED lights that give it a room-wide disco ball feel. The music in the club is supplied by different guest DJs, as well as resident spinner DJ Manos, playing top 40 hits and is sure to give you something that will make you move. If the club gets tight and a little too up-close-and-personal, the other sections are hospitable and fun. The walls in the front bar and lounge area also open up to the street for a lofty and urban feel.
Chloe isn’t just a place to go out after a long day at school or work, it’s a great place for celebrations. Leah, a club-goer from Loveland, was enjoying the mezze with many of her girlfriends as she celebrated her bachelorette party.
With a full table of half-eaten plates and empty glasses, the ladies were enjoying their evening out. “The mushroom sliders were fabulous,” she said. “And the lamb sliders, so good. The meatballs, too.”
Another Chloe-goer was Gui Cipriani, who was celebrating being the most eligible bachelor in Denver, according toCirpriani. This was Cipriani’s third time at Chloe, and he said, “It is the best place to be in Denver. It has the best people, best service, and the best dance floor.”
Chloe welcomes many local athletes, but also attracts celebrities like John Legend, members of The Fray and All Time Low, and even a certain lady that pretty much everyone turns heads for. While Lady Gaga was in Denver, staying at the Four Seasons, her press representative called ahead notifying the club that she wanted to attend that night. It never ended up happening, but the fact that she has heard of the place and was interested shows that they’ve got something special going on.
Although Maxwell said Chloe doesn’t find shows appealing, the occasional musical guest may break out in a couple songs just to show why they’re famous in the first place. You never know who might show up during the busy weekend, so a surprise is always possible.
As you walk through Chloe, the four bars throughout are a convenient places to make sure you have all the liquid courage you need when you see someone who captures your eye, whether it’s a celeb or a hot local. However, if you’re going to Chloe to find someone special, the best time to go is after 10 p.m., maybe even after 11 p.m., just to make sure that it’s full of options. When the club opens at 10 p.m., the newly-turned-21-year-olds are the only ones on the dance floor, and the older drunks are watching from the bar. It’s best to keep your options open, but timing is everything.
“I really feel like Denver has become a cosmopolitan city,” said Maxwell, “and Chloe is one aspect of that cosmopolitan city.”
Thursday night, although a school night, could be one of the best nights to attend Chloe. “Social Circle” goes on in the mezze, where you can taste Chef Jose Guerroro’s selections for the night, and in the garden where you can once again mingle with new friends.
Chloe is looking to expand in the future, but for now, Denver has somewhere special to go when you need an experience that will give you great outdoor seating with twinkle lights and fire pits, and sexy indoor spaces to lounge and socialize.

Stylish LoDo lounge opened in July by nightlife impresario Francois Safieddine serves small plates and lush drinks
Chlóe Mezze Lounge is no shrinking violet of an eatery. The website features an invented namesake — sort of an imaginary friend: “Chloe, a jet-setting, New York fashionista, who has planted her roots in Downtown Denver to share her experiences from all around the world. The culmination of her travels has manifested into three distinct spaces in one venue. These include the Mezze Lounge, Garden, and Discotheque.” The hook is baited for Denver’s fashionable party set that loves Denver but wishes it were a little more like Manahttan. There’s even a dress code: “Dress to impress. No hats, sneakers, T-shirts, hoodies, shorts, sports apparel, baggy or ripped clothing, or excessive jewelry. Jeans are OK. Dress code strictly enforced.”
I experienced the lounge portion for a recent media event early on a weeknight evening, when the disco was dark and the beautiful people that this beautiful place is designed to attract were, by and large, mercifully in the minority. Just as well, because the regular clientele would have made me feel underdresed, not sufficiently stylish and with too many years on my odometer to wear short, short skirts, high, high heels and low, low necklines.
Even if I and the media guests I was hanging with aren’t Chlóe’s target clientele, I can appreciate high style and lofty ambitions. The lounge features clean-lined furnishings, flattering light and, on a warm summer evening when the large doors were wide open, Market Street traffic noise. A peek into the discotheque component revealed a nightclub. It is open only three nights a week beginning at 10 p.m., an hour when Denver’s less-beautiful denizens are ready to turn in. Someone told me that the “garden” is a terrific courtyard with a firepit and the look of a supper club under the stars.
From happy hour beginning at 4 p.m. to late night indulgence ending 10 hours later, Chlóe is a see-and-be-seen place. The kitchen under chef Jose Guerrero turns out mezze (the Italian word for tapas) as gorgeous as the people Chlóe is seeking to attract, and the bartenders turn out a various cocktails invented by creative head mixologist Eryn Latterman. If the three courses of mezze brought to us by the attractive waitstaff are any indication, the food is drawn from several Mediterranean strains, and the cocktails, beers and wines have been chosen to harmonize. I’m hardly Chlóe’s target customer, but I’d return in a heartbeat for the lovely small bites, the excellent drinks and maybe a glass of Proseco that goes so well with this type of food.

The Black and White Soire brought out hundreds of people Sunday night. Guests burned some serious calories on the dance floor while celebrating the short work week ahead. DJ Cobra and DJ Manos kept the booty-bumping tunes going into the wee hours of the morning as club-goers packed the dance floor, the lounge, and the garden.
The Metromix crew ran into some Denver Broncos and Colorado’s own “Real World” star Andrew Woods (“Real World Washington D.C.”) while we were sipping one of our cocktails at Denver’s newest Lotus club. We’re particularly fond of the melon margarita topped off with a fresh slice of watermelon (trust us, it will make your night and, as we all know, nothing can go wrong when there’s tequila involved). — Laura Kelley, special to Metromix
Chloe, at 1445 Market St. (the former Ruth’s Chris space)
is nightclubber Francois Safieddine’s latest offering to LoDo’s short-skirted
evening scene. It’s bound to be a magnet for the young glam crowd, if the recent
opening is any indication. The lounge opens at 4 p.m. and fills up soon after. A
courtyard garden is a few steps away with its own outside bar and fire pit. At
10 p.m., a disco opens and pulsates behind the bar, with bottle service, a
ceiling with LED “intelligent” lighting and a 20-foot LED screen displaying
images of fire, ice and custom Chloe videos — controlled by a VJ. And management
encourages you to stand on the furniture. Chloe is the imaginary name of a
Denver socialite, but she seems awfully real.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHEF JOSE GUERRERO BRINGS DEEP LOVE OF FOOD, CULTURE TO CHLÓE
Talented chef delivers creative, flavorful take on Mediterranean cuisine at new LoDo destination
DENVER, Colo. (July 14, 2011) – Chef Jose Guerrero of the hot new LoDo dining and entertainment destination Chloe knows exactly who to thank for his cooking prowess — mom.
“I started cooking at home when I was 15 years old and every weekend my family would get together, so I cooked then, too. I am still inspired by my mother’s cooking. I bet if you went into her house right now you would find four things on the stove: rice, beans, some kind of protein, and homemade tortillas. Oh, and at least three salsas!”
Mom’s inspiration has taken Chef Jose a long way from his Chicago hometown, including a stint as a corporate chef in Puerto Vallarta. But Denver diners know him best for the fine food he served in recent years at some of Denver’s highest profile restaurants, including Roy’s Cherry Creek, Mao, 975, The Jet Hotel, and Pizza Republica.
Now Denver will be able to try his inventive take on Mediterranean cuisine at Chloe, the sleek new lounge and discotheque from Francois Safieddine. The exciting addition to Denver entertainment and dining will debut on July 21st with an exclusive grand opening party co-sponsored by 5280 Magazine, Volunteers of America and Donna Baldwin Talent.
Chef Jose has created a menu composed of seasonal mezzes (“small plates”) such as albondigas served with garlic and tomato sherry, flash fried calamari, lamb sliders, fattoush and caprese salads. The menu will deliver a variety of specific flavors under the Mediterranean umbrella, says Chef Jose: “You’ll taste Lebanese, Algerian and Moroccan accents.”
But you won’t taste heavy, says Safieddine. “The focus is to keep the menu fresh, light, and healthy to enhance the complete lounge experience, not overwhelm guests with an obtuse menu.”
Learning a new cuisine is something Chef Jose embraces. “I think I have a knack for culture and cuisine. When I think about a particular cuisine, I look at it from a cultural perspective, not just as ‘recipes.’ I try and think about why people of that culture eat certain foods and why they prepare them the way they do.”
But right now, as he works toward opening night, Chef Jose admits to being less investigative. “Now that I am finally in the kitchen at Chloe, I am almost without words. I really don’t talk much at this point. All the recipes have been done for a month. So as I work, I’m so excited I can’t really put it into words.”

Bars and restaurants are always being named after friends, but what if none of yours are cool enough, or you’re T-Boz, and “Chili’s” is already taken? Then creatively name it for a friend who isn’t real, like new lounge Chlóe.
From the nightclub titan who brought Denver Suite 200, Chlóe is named for that (fictional) “one friend that is always ahead of the curve before everyone else”, and harbors low-slung couches, and a massive dance floor abutted by a 22ft LED wall and 20 bottle-service-ready tables, all of which’ll see a DJ spinning “something close to the Las Vegas sound”, so have fun dancing to you hitting rock bottom. Remix! Bottles for conspicuous order run from Perrier-Jouet Champagne, to TY KU sake, to Jean Marc XO vodka, plus there are specialty cocktails like the “Conte de Fee” with serrano chile-infused vodka/ Leopold Bros absinthe/ cucumber/ mint, and a Rhum Barbancourt/ Velvet Falernum/ egg whites concoction called “The Summer Holiday”, though after the 4th, you’ll probably want to take it easy. To fuel your impressive dancing/ lying-on-a-couch-looking-hot, they’ve got lamb sliders with Iberico cheese/ harissa aioli, all kinds of kebabs, saffron-fennel steamed mussels, and shareable platters (everything from fattoush to prosciutto-wrapped asparagus), all on a menu they describe as stocked with “portion-conscious Mediterranean” — omg, they’re eating Portia De Rossi?!
Although you’re definitely good looking enough to get in, the best way to ensure your whole crew makes it through the door is to reserve a table/ bottle online, which, coincidentally, is where all your super-cool friends live.

Don’t call her a restaurant. Don’t call her a bar or a club. She’s a triple threat, all three. You could put her in a class of her own.
From Lotus Concepts and Francois Safieddine comesChlóe, a chic restaurant and bar by day and dazzling discotheque by night. On the corner of 15th and Market she sits, unassumingly, waiting to share her flirtatious and sophisticated persona with all who enter.
The Metromix team went to meet Chlóe, try the Mediterranean-inspired plates and crafty, colorful cocktails and see just how cool this chick was. We decided that the new girl in town is pretty awesome, and we’d really like to be friends with her.
