A TMNT-inspired eatery Is Coming To Denver!

The TMNT-themed restaurant – “Casey Jones” will serve $3 New York-style pizza slices!

Cowabunga Dudes! A totally bodacious eatery is opening in Denver! A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-inspired bar and restaurant is opening in Denver in the former Giordano’s location on Broadway.

Known as Casey Jones Elevated Dive,  the Denver restaurant is coming to you from Handsome Boys Hospitality‘s Josh Schmitz. Chef Mat Shumaker, the former executive chef for Famous Original J’s Pizza will be leading the charge.  And according to reports, they will be serving $3 New York-style slices!

Unlike other pop-culture-themed restaurants and bars, Casey Jones is not a pop-up bar! Schmitz signed a nine-year lease.

“We were originally planning on opening this concept in Larimer Square, but when this became available, everything about it screamed Casey Jones,” said Schmitz. “Broadway has room for more than one pizza spot, and we’re excited to have a chef like Mat in our corner and give him a chance to really shine.”

Casey Jones will also have TMNT universe-themed cocktails created by General Manager Chris Wilson. With frozen cocktails with names like Bebop and Rocksteady (villains in the Ninja Turtles universe). Casey Jones will give any fan a radical experience!

“I’ve been playing with the idea of creating a sort of Casey Jones pizza party,” Schmitz added. “Everyone has that memory as kids going to a Pizza Hut or Chuck E. Cheese and squeezing a two-liter bottle into a cup. Now, you can do that with alcohol.”

Schmitz says he plans on opening the eatery sometime in May!
