Coohills Restaurant and Bar opened its doors to Denver’s hip LoDo neighborhood in 2011. The restaurant’s namesake husband-and-wife team Tom and Diane Coohill brought their complementary expertises together to create a unique and appealing dining experience reminiscent of that found in restaurants in Europe, with a focus on local, regional and farm-fresh ingredients.
