Death & Co Denver
In May of 2018, Death & Co Denver opened in The Ramble Hotel, marking the company’s first foray into full-service food, beverage and hotel integration. Death & Co Denver is comprised of various concepts and it is on track to outperform early projections of $4.5 million in revenue and 15% net profit in its first full year of business.
Death & Co Los Angeles
The company has a below-market lease for Death & Co Los Angeles in the booming Arts District, adjacent to the Downtown neighborhood. The three thousand-square-foot space will be a return to certain aspects of the New York City flagship; it will be an independent property not affiliated with a hotel, minimal food service, and a similar look and feel to the flagship Death & Co, but with greater revenue potential from two bar rooms and a larger capacity.
