One of my favorite haunts when I was in my early 20s is the time-honored Cruise Room at Denver's Oxford Hotel. It opened the day after Prohibition ended in 1933, and has been open ever since. A quintessential example of Art Deco design, the Cruise Room was modelled after a bar on the ocean liner the Queen Mary. Carved panels of cultures around the world saying 'Cheers!' line the walls, basking in dim pink light.
