THE PARAMOUNT CAFÉ
Listed on the US Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Places, the Kittredge Building was the tallest skyscraper in Denver
when constructed in 1891. Designed by architect A. Morris Stuckert, the Kittredge Building was hailed as "a fine example of technical
advancement and business acumen, displaying great taste and refinement."  Denver's finest modern office buiding featured such newfangled
amenities as electricity, steam heat, fire-proofing, and elevators.  Those not as fortunated to work in such prestigious surroundings could still
enjoy the panoramic mountain views offered while dining at the building's Casino Roof Garden.  Opened in 1891, the rooftop beer garden and
amusement park with seating for over 300 people, soon gained a reputation as Denver's entertainment gathering place.

The site of the Paramount Café once served as the entrance and lobby of the Historic Paramount Theatre.  Once among seventeen theaters in
the downtown area, it is now the only remaining grand movie palace of its era.  With the present entrance located around the corner on
Glenarm Place, the former lobby's huge concession stand and soda fountain now serves as the Paramount Café's wrap-around bar.  The Art
Deco terrazzo tile floor and ornate hand crafted gilt work are original features of the theater.
