Get ready to party poolside this summer.
Denver has got 300 days of sunshine, and now that we’re into summer, it’s time to soak up those sun rays and cool off. Even if Denver doesn’t have a beach, there are still plenty of poolside oasis to enjoy, and even better is when poolside meets skyline views (and why not throw in a cocktail or two while we’re at it?). Here are 5 of our favorite upscale hotels offering panoramic views and gorgeous pools to cool down this summer.
1. The Jacquard
The Jacquard’s rooftop pool is open again at a limited capacity. Up to 50 people can enjoy some cool pool time with amazing views of the mountains and Denver skyline in the distance. If you and your friends are hanging out by the sparkling lap pool, The Jacquard’s rooftop bar, ‘ Kisbee on the Roof’ will be your oasis bar for yummy cocktails like their Island Fever with gin, craisens, fever tree yuzu and lime soda water and elevated dishes like burrata caprese salad with fresh burrata, heirloom tomatoes, basil pesto, lemon oil, and crostinis. Jacquard’s is located in Denver’s iconic Cherry Creek neighborhood.
