Our Keystone First Location
A stately and distinguished National Landmark, the Patterson Inn is situated on a quarter acre in the heart of Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Historically intriguing yet complete with all the comforts of modern amenities, it offers a luxurious reprieve from the stresses of everyday life.
The Patterson Inn features nine luxurious suites, each designed around its own unique theme. Furnishings in each room reflect the personality of that room, as well as the history and elegance of the building, and each includes its own private bath. From the decadence of the Antoinette, to the old world feel of the Prague, each distinctive room promises its own special experience.
Located in the basement of the Patterson Inn, 12 Spirits Tavern opened to the public in May of 2022 and is open everyday from 4-9pm. An expanded amenity to our guests and also neighborhood destination. Serving classic and signature cocktails along with fine spirits and wine.
The most exiting and unique amenity in hospitality is becoming a reality with The 420 Denver. A modern lounge designed to meet international standards for a smoke filled room. This space will establish a new normal in hospitality by pairing overnight accommodations with this first of its kind on-site licensed cannabis hospitality lounge.

Chris Chiari had a vision twelve years ago when he stood in front of 420 E. 11th Avenue for the first time, a stately Victorian mansion known as the Croke-Patterson and now home to the Patterson Inn and The 420 Denver. He missed his first bid to buy the property in 2011, but in 2018, back on the market, he jumped at the opportunity. From first site he had declared his intention to turn it into a licensed cannabis hotel.
Chris has spent over a decade trying to normalize cannabis. A former board member of Colorado NORML and active in state and local politics, he is both a consumer and an advocate working to destigmatize cannabis possession and consumption. He is also the producer of the award-winning documentary Public Enemy Number One, a look at the government’s war on drugs. As CEO, he uses his hospitality, operations, and community outreach experience to address the stigmas and ignorance that still exist around cannabis use while creating a unique and upscale environment for cannabis consumption.
Public Enemy Number One, a film by Chris Chiari, is a feature documentary about the War on Drugs and counts entertainer Ice-T as one of its executive producers. The film won awards for Best Producer and Best Storyteller at its world premiere at DOC LA 2019 and Best Documentary at the 2020 Seattle Film Festival. It is currently available for rent on Amazon Prime, AppleTV and streaming on Pluto TV and Tubi.
