We are immensely proud to be home to some of Fort Collins’ favorite neighborhood haunts. Mugs Coffee Lounge is a locally owned, family-operated coffee shop (popular with the college crowd). Choice City Butcher & Deli is also a go-to spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner and beer. Check out Ace Gillett’s Lounge & Supper Club in the evening for craft cocktails, spinning vinyl and live music. Ace Café, located in our lobby, will be showcasing the best craft cocktails and shared plates from your favorite neighborhood haunt on our newly added patio. Want something a bit different? For a create-your-own stir fry, try HuHot Mongolian Grill.

Ace Gillett's Lounge

Fort Collins’ beloved underground cocktail and music lounge, has just undergone a comprehensive renovation, as well as a refresh to its culinary, beverage and musical programming. Recently reopened, Ace Gillett’s continues to provide the community with an upscale, yet welcoming and comfortable experience, but with a sophisticated new design, and an atmosphere that evokes elements of a classic supper club.
