EVERY BUILDING TELLS A STORY
The 1899 Kopper’s Hotel and Saloon in the historic Airedale Building is one of the few surviving representatives of Denver’s early working-class hotels and ethnic saloons. German immigrant Albert Kopper built the three-story building as a replacement for his successful saloon at the same location. Architect Frederick Carl Eberely designed the hotel / saloon in a style typical of late Victorian-era commercial architecture, distinguishing its facade with a pair of two-story bay windows. The Airedale Building was nearly condemned by the City but was reimagined and reconstructed to house a modern hostel and bar/restaurant/concert venue, returning its use back to its roots.
