Authentic Southwestern Cuisine

Kachina is a free-spirited, modern Southwestern grill providing an escape in the LoDo district of Denver. Kachina’s inspiration is found in the Four Corners region of Southwest America. Guests are welcomed to a native-inspired space that is a modern interpretation of the airy and relaxing textures of the Southwest, as well as the magic that happens when you combine an Airstream camper, an open fire and a spirited culture.

Go on an adventurous culinary roadtrip with dishes that represent the Southwest like pork posole rojo and the seven different types of Navajo tacos with Native American fried bread. Kachina’s in-house butcher program reenforces our respect for the land in that the whole animal is used in the most creative and succulent manner, while our partnerships with Native American tribes and exploration of their unique Southwestern ingredients brings a whole new layer of spice and originality to our menu.

Continue your journey with a smoky margarita or other selection from our thoughtful wine list, local and regional craft brews, inspired cocktails and agua frescas, or the impressive collection of artisan agave spirits.

Taste what happens when the open road is roamed alongside authentically prepared Southwestern food, fresh margaritas and sipping tequila, and, of course, great friends.

Kachina: Get back to the land. Get back to the Southwest.

Chef Jeff Bolton focuses on the sublime details of selecting the freshest ingredients possible to complement each other and create taste sensations that will live long in your memory.
