“Rita’s Law No. 80: “Make a friend, buy your neighbor a drink.”
Rita Price has many more where this one came from; she’ll be laying down the law at her new bar, Rita’s Law, which she expects to open in April at 2209 Welton Street. A Denver native and restaurant veteran who moved west to run her own establishments (most recently in San Francisco), Price recently returned to Colorado and chose Five Points as the spot to set up shop because of its history and sense of community.
Growing up in Denver, she was always told to avoid Five Points, but as an adult she learned more about what the neighborhood has meant to Denver as a whole. “I hated that there was a place in Denver that I didn’t know,” she explains.
Price selected the location for Rita’s Law because of the building’s age and character. Built in 1903, it was recently renovated after sitting vacant for several years (and before that was part of the Melbourne International Hotel & Hostel). The entire block has gotten a facelift in the past two years, with new businesses like TeaLee’s Teahouse & Bookstore, Woods Boss Brewing Company, Solutions Lounge & Restaurant and Habit/Carbon Five Points opening.”
