MERLE'S RESTAURANT

Littleton, Colorado

INSPIRATION

The opening of Merle’s Restaurant and Bar in 2009 was a catalyst for the redevelopment of downtown Littleton, spurring the opening of new restaurants, businesses and shops. Originally an automotive repair shop, the building went through a major renovation and addition that paid homage to the original structure with garage door windows, and design elements from the original structure. Merle’s features an indoor circular bar, a variety of interesting dining areas and a rooftop patio that frames views of the Front Range, and houses a rooftop bar.
