JNS Architecture + Interior Design completed the BEZEL Bar faceted in urban elegance, elevating the cocktail experience for both visitors and locals in the heart of Downtown Denver.

  • area / size 2,400 sqft
  • Year 2021
  • Tucked inside the expansive Sheraton Denver Downtown and situated adjacent to Denver’s bustling 16th Street Mall, sits BEZEL. The sophisticated cocktail bar is inspired by the 1960’s era of mixing business with pleasure and pays homage to the golden age of cocktails and the art of refined gathering.

    At BEZEL’s center is a beveled mirror wall offering a defining backdrop for the illuminated back bar stocked full of the makings of an inventive cocktail menu. An extension of the diagrid of the Sheraton’s porte-cochère, BEZEL transforms the angled geometry evoking the etching of a crystal whiskey tumbler.

    The bar lighting creates an intimate scene. The leather tufted banquette wraps the angled walls while the textured walls are a custom deep navy plaster alternating with floor-to-ceiling glass. BEZEL’s outdoor patio features firepits and soft seating along the 16th Street Mall.
