Over 100 years old, our space once operated as a “wheel and deal” pawn shop. To maintain the integrity of the structure, we have preserved its post and beam construction, brick wall in the North Dining Room, and the 14 foot ceilings. We have restored the facade, installed an open, exhibition style kitchen, lounge area with see-through linear fireplace, ‘U’ shaped Norwegian Quartz bar, exposed wood beams, and pressed tin ceilings Redesigned in conjunction with Chef Ryan Leinonen, Ethos Architecture, and Starker Construction, Trillium projects a ‘Modern Scandinavian’ meets ‘Warm Americana’ atmosphere that is casual-comfy-cozy-cool. Trillium was conceived to engage the guest in a wonderful dining and social experience. We are proud to be part of the Ballpark Neighborhood’s continued revitalization.

Try a Taste of Scandinavia at Trillium’s Happy Hour

-Denver bistro features Scandinavian spirit with American attitude-

DENVER, June 14, 2012 — Forget Happy Hours filled with weak discounted drinks and conventional bar fare. At Trillium, Happy Hour is both affordable and appetizing - a celebration of modern, Scandinavian-inspired cocktails and cuisine you won’t find anywhere else. Served in the sleek yet cozy Cloud Bar and festive patio, happy hour runs from 5-7 pm weekdays; and Saturdays and Sundays from 5-9 (closed Monday).

Trillium offers a classic Scandinavian smorgasbord, featuring such items as chicken, bacon and mushroom terrine with onion mustard and rieska (a Finnish flatbread); lemon and dill pickled shrimp; truffled Tater Tots with hollandaise; and Portobello “fries” – fresh Portobello mushrooms, cut into steak fry shape, soaked in buttermilk and a batter of flour and cornmeal and then deep-fried. This fresh take on fries is served with Amish Wisconsin Blue Cheese Aioli.

Gazpacho - the perfect summer soup – is also an option and is garnished with a fried cornbread crouton and sour cream.

And what would happy hour be without that legendary Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit? Try Aquavit-cured salmon for size, or perhaps the oysters with ginger Aquavit mignonette. Most smorgasbord items are $4, with a selection of artisan cheeses at $6.

Six options of well spirits at $4 each can be combined to the customer’s preference, and select 20 oz drafts are also priced at $4. Stroh’s lager and your choice of a shot: Vodka, Whiskey, or Aquavit at $6.00

Trillium also offers an array of daily specials Tuesday through Sunday. The line-up includes:

Tuesday: "Shot and a Beer” - A beer and a shot of Vodka, Whiskey, orAquavit at $6Wednesday: “Rum Roulette” – Pick a card, any card. But instead of turning up a queen or an ace, our deck is filled with an array of rum-based cocktails. We’ll make whatever you choose for just $6.Thursday: “Punch Social” - Our crafty mixologists create a new, seasonal, and strong punch every Thursday. $6.Friday: “Oysters and Pearls” – Order our Happy Hour Oysters ($4), and get a free “pairing" of our house champagne.Saturday: Aquavit's Take Flight! Aquavit is a traditional Scandinavian, slightly spicy, herbaceous liquor. Our bartenders "infuse" ours in-house to create exciting new flavors, such as Carrot Cake, Strawberry Black Pepper, & Fig! Try one, or flights of three or five. $4/shot, $7/flight of three, $11/flight of fiveSunday: Happy Hour all night! (5 p.m. to 9 p.m.).
