Archetype Distillery

Archetype Distillery will be an artisanal distillery producing both small-batch gin and vodka for sale in the large, open-concept tasting room. It will find its home on South Broadway in Denver, originally the home of The Webber Theater. The 1917 classic movie house dating back to the silent-film era is being dramatically transformed into a working distillery and tasting room, event space and art gallery.

The design will preserve much of the building’s 100-year old brick work, while adding sharp, modern sensibilities in metal and wood to the new space.

A glimpse of the distilling process will be offered along the main tasting room and event space. The event lounge will showcase local art while allowing Archetype to accommodate large-function reservations of up to 200. The tasting bar is surrounded with steel detailing and distilling materials including a bubble wall to emphasize the distilling process.
