Improper City is about as close as you can get to a sweet co-op, without the smells. Work meetings, friend meet-ups, first dates, and lone wolves are all welcome here.

How It Works

Situated on the 32nd block off Walnut Street, our space is the perfect slice of Denver. We have an 8,000-square-foot indoor space (with an upper deck) where we serve coffee and a rotating cast of 36 craft beers, 4 affordably priced wines, and 8 draft cocktails.

Between the 75-foot-long bar top and array of tables, there’s plenty of space for work groups and hangouts, but go outside for more: Four to 6 of Denver’s finest food trucks will cycle through every day, offering everything from small bites to full-on meals. When the sun is shining, you can also find our mobile outdoor bar, serving suntanned guests and cornhole masters throughout the day. Fido is more than welcome.

About Us

We’re just like you, fellow Denverites. We love good beer, good food, and good coffee—and, yes, we love being outside. We wanted to create a space that married all of those, and we can’t think of a better space for it than River North.

Here, the old WSM building that created HVAC ductwork, was set for demolition. That’s a shame because the space is really freakin’ cool. Along with our friends at Movement Climbing + Fitness, we turned it into a space that showcases the past and spyglasses the future: See its original architecture with exposed trusses and beams alongside our new touches, like local murals and handcrafted tables.

Improper City features an 8,000-square-foot indoor space and 12,000-square-foot outdoor space—and it shares a roof with Movement Climbing + Fitness, the gym’s third location. How’s that for a little piece of Denver?

Brought to you by the folks who brought you the Rayback.

Meet Our Team

Justin Riley - Cofounder & Owner

Like every other transplant, Justin came to Boulder in 2014 to climb, ski, drink beer, and start his own business. Now he’s older and more mature—which means Denver is his new quarry. Now, Justin brings the imagination and discipline that turned The Rayback into such a success to RiNo, where he’s thinking he just might set his roots.

Hank Grant - Cofounder & Owner

Hank left his 10-year career in the energy industry in Atlanta to pursue his dreams out west. The Rayback proves that that decision panned out well for the guy, but just because he’s coming up on a decade of Colorado livin’, that doesn't mean he's lost his manners. Any and every person is a friend—as well as a sir or ma'am—and someone worth sharing an adventure and a beer with.

Ken Macias - General Manager

This California kid endured stints in Costa Rica, Tokyo, San Diego, Austin, and—most recently—Dubai before landing in the Promised Land of RiNo. Now he’s is playing catchup, learning about the superiority of winter sports and altitude. But don’t try to prove you’re more Coloradoan than he is—or you’ll get a head-spinning earful about the best sakes, teas, mezcals, kombuchas, and topo chicos on the planet.

Vanessa Megan - Manager & Social Media Wizard

Having two first names can go one of two ways: total square, total trendsetter. Well, we’re lucky this #ladyboss is the second. Vanessa comes to Improper City with eight years in the restaurant industry with experience in events, mixology, and corporate training—not to mention her affinity for horror movies (high-budget and cheesy). Girl also likes to get funky with paint and treats literally everything as a canvas.

Lexie Roberts - Marketing & Events

Collateral damage in a move that brought her hubby to Colorado, Lexie is starting to admit that he was right all along. She worked in catering in the area for three years (best way to get to know a city) and failed to launch a successful Instagram career for her cat Harvey before coming onto the Improper City team, where she’s praised/chided for her affinity for ’90s R&B.
