Airport hospitality specialist, OTG, has announced the 2024 opening of two food and beverage concepts within Denver International Airport’s United Airlines Concourse.
While OTG has transformed the airport dining experience at airports across the country, this initial entry into the Denver market will include the introduction of a new concept curated specifically for the air transport hub, Sunset Loop Bar & Grill, and the popular coffee chain, Starbucks.
Both concessions will be developed, managed and operated as a joint venture partnership between OTG and Doc1 Solutions, a Denver-based firm. OTG will also integrate its mobile-first technology, known as flo Xgen, within the Concourse B-East experience. The technology enables passengers to place their food and beverage orders through a mobile platform across all OTG restaurants and retail outlets.
“OTG is passionate about introducing new culinary concepts that echo the airport’s sense-of-place and serve as a true extension of the community’s food scene,” said Rick Blatstein, CEO of OTG.
“We are excited to partner with local community organisations and celebrate the chefs. farmers, brewrs and purveyors that have turned Denver into the mecca of culinary innovation that is today,” he continued.
“Coupled with OTG’s technology innovations, we’re confident that Concourse B-East will be both a seamless and enjoyable experience for travellers and employees alike.”
The one-of-a-kind Sunset Loop Bar & Grill will offer an all-day dining experience offering health-conscious cuisine and traditional American fare, with a locally sourced menu. The decor will be inspired by the Denver sunset; warm woods, rich materials and elegant brass and black metal accents set against a hand-painted tile mural depicting the local Sunset Loop trails – a series of hikin routes found in White Ranch Park in Colorado. The restaurant’s centre piece will be an expansive bar with over 30 seats, serving a signature cocktails inspired rotating menu of beers from Denver’s famous craft beer scene.
Senior Vice President of Concessions at Denver, Pam Dechant, expressed her delight at the collaboration and the fun, new concept OTG will bring to the hub saying: “We’re always looking for ways to make travelling through DEN a breeze and the ability to bring mobile ordering to our passengers takes service to the next level.”
