1514 Curtis Street, Denver, CO 80202
The historic building was once a candy confectionery, Baur’s Candy Shop, founded in 1872 by Otto Baur who claimed to scoop the very first ice cream soda. Baur’s Restaurant continued to serve Denver as a popular chain into the 1970’s. Remnants of history can still be seen in the tile flooring and barrel vaulted ceiling on the first floor and exposed brick walls and lofty timber ceilings on the second and third floors.
Floor 2: Candy Factory Coworking
Centrally located in the historic Baur’s Building in downtown Denver, the Candy Factory is the sweetest new coworking spot in town. Built in 1881, Baur’s was home to O.P. Baur Confectionery and was a virtual palace of sweets: cases of candy, cakes, ice cream, a soda fountain and more. Today, this three story building has all the modern amenities a coworking office demands and remnants of its architectural history remain including exposed brick walls, timber ceilings and metal star bolts.
