First Look at First Draft in Wren’s Retail Space

It’s a very exciting time for residents of WREN’s DTLA apartments! In just a few months, we will be adding a new bar and restaurant to our long list of amenities. You heard that right – a brand new eating, drinking and socializing experience, First Draft Taproom & Kitchen, is soon to open in WREN’s bottom floor corner retail space! And, it’s not just any bar and restaurant…First Draft offers up a truly unique drinking and dining experience, so we’re extremely proud that they will be a part of the WREN family. If you’re not familiar, here’s a first look at First Draft, the new taproom and kitchen opening up in WREN’s retail space!

What’s So Special About First Draft? 

First Draft Taproom & Kitchen

From First Draft’s Facebook Page

Good question! First Draft Taproom & Kitchen is a Pour Your Own craft beer taproom and kitchen… and currently one of Denver’s hottest destination locations.  Basically, you have total control over what, when and how much you drink and eat. Soon enough, WREN’s DTLA apartments will be home to the finest selection of local and national craft beers, wines, coffee, kombucha and ciders – served from over 60 taps.

total control over your entire drinking and dining experience

First Draft is based on the concept that you should have total control over your entire drinking and dining experience.  This means getting all the information and pricing you need up front, making your own choice of dozens of offerings from the best breweries, and drinking only the amount you choose to consume.  Each offering will occupy its own rotating tap, controlled by your own personal access card. You simply check-in, get your RFID card, and get to work learning, socializing and creating your own experience! You’re charged only by the ounces you want to consume and can try whatever tap you want – making it into a full-on, unique tasting experience at every visit.

Plus, First Draft Kitchen offers their Daily Selection menu to complement the changing beer, cider and wine offerings.  Selections change weekly and include several scrumptious bites to choose from including artisanal charcuterie boards, small plates, as well as unique sandwiches and salads. If you feel like you might build a bigger appetite while you’re making rounds to all the taps and meeting new friends, don’t worry – there are also large entrees that will be available. Really, what’s not to love about independence and choice at First Draft?

Ah, yes – details, details, details! First Draft is slated to open this fall, and it will occupy a 4,000 square-foot retail space located on the first floor of our seven-story complex.  There’s also a mezzanine inside with its own upstairs taps and several areas where your group can gather and party together. Additionally, the seating won’t be restricted to just the inside of the restaurant; since it has an open layout, you’ll be able to stroll right in from the patio (with fire pits) or sidewalk outside WREN! Enjoying the LA sun has never been so posh! First Draft will, of course, be available to the general public, but only WREN residents will have the pleasure of specialized services and a 30-second commute to a brisket mac and cheese. (We’ve been waiting for a chance to drop that delightful bomb on you.)

WREN is the community you’ve been dreaming of! Nowhere else will you find DTLA apartments like ours! And, it’s not just because First Draft will soon be one of our esteemed tenants. We actually took into consideration all the things that Los Angelenos love. This includes an optimal location that is close to all the best features of downtown LA including parks, museums, shopping, dining, and sports and entertainment venues. We also include amenities like our rooftop decks, a private park, and pool and spa, which all encourage a connection to the outdoors. Additionally, we have a club lounge equipped with entertainment, private fitness center, and business center and conference rooms with working spaces and conference tables. We could go on with even more amenities, but you get the point!
