FIRE

Stemming from our desire to be authentic to the artistic mindset, a Broadway restaurant in Denver, called FIRE introduces a fresh take on New American Cuisine. Like another work of art in the hotel, our cuisine is a melting pot of flavors, a fusion of farm-to-table flair that captures the American experience.

A memorable dining experience

From room service to fine dining in Denver, from power lunches to romantic dinners, from banquet meals to catered events, every meal is treated as its own creation at FIRE. Sourcing only the freshest ingredients, our award-winning chef and talented culinary team create a memorable experience for our guests.

Warm, vibrant restaurant interiors

Picture a romantic fire. Savor the kindling smells. Soak in the warm hues. Our new Golden Triangle, Denver restaurant is an experience in and of itself – where the inspiration for FIRE sparked the experience we set out to create with exemplary service, culinary works and warm interiors. The fourth-floor restaurant, which accommodates 88 diners, is an architectural glass wonder with Mile High rays spilling into the interiors. Overlooking Denver’s bustling Broadway, this ambiance features a flavorful restaurant called FIRE.

OUR STORY
In 2014, we signed the lease on a warehouse space in RiNo that included a forklift, a sketchy staircase and mezzanine, and beautiful tall acoustically magic original wood ceilings. We poured some literal blood, sweat, and tears into repurposing 1330 27th Street into Nocturne.
We dreamt of making Nocturne into a place that would make jazz more accessible to a broader audience, be a unique hospitality experience and become a destination not be missed when visiting Denver. Nocturne is the result of a lot of hard work and continual support from friends, partners, family, and community. We opened the doors in March 2015 and are proud to have brought the modern jazz and supper club experience to life now for over two years. Our team is as passionate about hospitality as they are music and we come to work every day to make Nocturne a special place for the community of Denver, the staff that work for us, and for you, our guests.
Scott Mattson is a creative and operational specialist with experience in music performance, music education, hospitality management, and the fine wine industry. A Certified Sommelier with a fervent obsession for the guest experience, Scott directs Nocturne's restaurant operations, manages the music programming, and pours a lot of champagne.
Nicole Mattson With 12 years of management experience, an undergrad degree in hospitality and an MBA from the University of Denver, Nicole is a guru in hospitality business leadership. She formerly helped open award-winning luxury hotels in Vail, created service cultures from scratch, and increased revenues through pricing and marketing strategies at Sage Hospitality. Now she's proud to be wearing the many hats of a entrepreneur, including full-time “restaurant Mom” to the Nocturne team.
Chef Greg Weadick A Colorado native who spent time in Portland, Oregon leading the culinary program for a high-end French catering company, Greg also held an apprenticeship with master chefs from Switzerland prior to returning to Colorado. Prior to Nocturne, Greg spent some time leading the kitchen at Ivy at the Glen and curing meats and cheeses at Osteria Marco. When not in the kitchen, Greg has played the guitar for the past seven years and his knowledge of music helps him in creating menus inspired by iconic jazz albums at Nocturne.

Gleam car wash is a flex-serve car wash, which means you can 
get just the outside washed for as little as $6 all the way up to a
completely restorative detail, we call the Sale Ready Detail, and 
everything in between. We chose this concept, because it offers 
something for everyone. Gleam is the greenest car wash in the 
state. We recycle all of our water and re-use over 90% of that. 
Plus, we have 32 variable frequency drives for all of our big 
motors and 41kw array of solar on our roof. We also love 
giving back to our community and neighborhood by offering 
all local items in our lobby, by donating to Children’s Hospital 
and Groundwork Denver, and by employing adults with 
disabilities, and refugees. So, as you can see, you’re not just 
getting your car cleaned when you come to Gleam…
