The Grizzly Rose, opened in Denver in 1989, has been a greater Denver staple for those looking to dance and libate for over three decades now. On an average Saturday evening, pre-COVID-19, Rose-goers are thrilled to mingle with one of Denver’s most diverse crowds; customers run the gamut from bikers to local elected officials. The Grizzly Rose is a Colorado icon, and the bar has suffered enormous losses because of Governor Polis’s arbitrary restrictions.
Jenny Orin, a Denver local who wasn’t at the Rose Friday night (because the Rose doesn’t force people to attend), commented to the Denver Channel that she was “shocked to see crowds packed in the bar” on Friday, and she obviously had to react by posting those videos on social media and calling for more compliance…whatever it takes to make Jenny Orin feel safe, even if at the expense of a three-decades-long business owner in the community.
Jenny feels like the Grizzly Rose took a step backward, and she would like to see more masks and social distancing, so she called the media and is destroying a local business of over thirty years, as well as the entertainment of her fellow Denverites, in the name of her safety. “I want it to stop,” says Jenny, with apparently no realization that no one is forcing Jenny to attend the Grizzy Rose.
Jenny’s hysteria, which was later spread across the state and made national news by Sunday afternoon, was echoed in the comments, people begging Governor Polis to shut down everything and “keep them safe.” However, there were thousands of more comments from people supporting the Rose, eager to re-open the economy as a whole. While the Grizzly Rose sent Denver into a meltdown Sunday morning, the controversy will inevitably make the establishment more popular amongst freedom-loving Denverites who are against unconstitutional mandates.
We reached out to Grizzly Rose and will update this with any comments received. Unfortunately, the public had begun review doxxing and review bashing the Rose on Sunday.
Apparently, Denver’s safety-seeking crowd doesn’t realize that bars like the Rose don’t run on reviews. The thirty-year-old establishment is well known enough that a few bad reviews aren’t going to make a difference.
