Step back in time, to about the 1930s or so, in the pink-hued art deco Cruise Room on the 1st floor of the historic Oxford Hotel  in LoDo. It’s hard to get up and leave the Cruise Room once you’ve settled into one of their cushy booths and ordered a few of their fabulous martinis from the excellent bartenders.
The Cruise Room, which opened the day after Prohibition ended in 1933, is modeled after a cruise ship lounge on the Queen Mary. Great for a romantic date night or just a casual night out for drinks with friends.
