The phrase “Beat Generation” was coined by Jack Kerouac in 1948. Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady, and Allen Ginsberg were the original “beat generation.” Explore their Denver history and haunts with “beat generation” historian and writer, Zack Kopp in the comfort of a “smoking” limo. Please bring your own bud. Non-Smoking tours available.
In keeping with the spirit of these notorious authors our tour begins with a cocktail around the piano at Charlie Brown’s in the Colburn Hotel, with a brief “Beat” introduction by Zack Kopp. Marijuana consumption is legal in the limo. B.Y.O.P. (Smoking paraphernalia is available in the limo) The limo is stocked with non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.
The Beat Generation Tour travels through downtown, LoDo and Five Points (the Harlem of the West). Our last stop before returning to the Colburn Hotel is My Brother’s Bar for hamburgers, beers and stories.
“I pictured myself in a Denver bar that night, with all the gang, and in their eyes I would be strange and ragged and like the Prophet who has walked across the land to bring the dark Word, and the only Word I had was ‘Wow!” On the Road by Jack Kerouac
Cost per person $175 includes cocktails at The Colburn and Burgers (or other sandwiches) and beers at My Brother’s Bar.
