Gaetano's Best Bloody Mary Bar

The sign on the outside of Gaetano's promises the "Biggest Bloody Mary Bar in Town," and we have yet to find one bigger. Or better. The longtime north Denver Italian eatery — once owned by a famous Mob family, then by the Wynkoop group and now an independent — puts out a Bloody Mary spread with so many options that you could make your drink a meal in itself for just $6 a glass. Bartender Caitlyn Smith is responsible for the selection, and she can be found early every Sunday slicing cheese into sticks to add to the vast array of veggies — including an extensive selection of pickled ones — as well as such ideal add-ons as olives, bacon and beef jerky. Three different tomato blends are offered for the base — a house mix that's heavy with Italian seasonings, a Clamato version, and one made using V8 — all of which can be spiced up even further with any of 75 hot sauces in a variety of strengths, and eight seasoning mixes. Be sure to try the homemade infused vodka with pickled cucumber and garlic for an extra kick.

Return of the classic Cocktail!

"Choice of cocktail is a declaration of character" sign rests above our bar, as does "Bootlegged beer served here" we are a cocktail driven bar that explores the old classics, lost favorites and modern day creations. Come meet our near fanciful bartenders as they shake, stir and sass their way through the night... sass them back and they might even slide you our little black book of cocktails... cheers!

About Gaetano's

For nearly four decades, the most infamous mobsters in Denver history, Eugene, Clyde and Chauncey Smaldone, made North Denver their home. Following in the pre-prohibition bootlegging shadow of their parents, they were equal parts neighborhood saints and big city sinners. Welcome to the epicenter of illegal gambling, loan sharks and the dark and sexy side of our fair city.
