  • New Belgium Brewing Sports Bar on Concourse B
  • Brothers BBQ on Concourse A
  • Snarf’s on Concourse A
  • CNBC on Concourse A
  • Breckenridge Brewery on Concourse A

Three new SkyMarket units will open in the coming year amid Denver Airport’s retail expansion

Each of the new locations is in the design phase and are expected to open in about one year from now.

Other locations currently under construction include Tivoli Brewery & Tom’s Urban Kitchen, located at the Westin Denver International Airport, and two Smashburger & Bar units, located on Concourses B and C. The airport also recently opened The Roasting Plant, a specialty coffee shop, on the train platform under the Hotel and Transit Center.

The new outlets will complement the core category offer, which includes Dufry-run Denver Duty Free

“With a record 58.3 million passengers last year, Denver International Airport continues to see substantial growth that is driving an increased demand for exceptional shopping and dining options,” said Denver Airport Chief Commercial Officer Patrick Heck. “The addition of these concessions won’t just add much needed capacity to serve passengers, but they will thoughtfully add a variety of local Colorado flavours and national brands to our growing lineup.”

Brothers BBQ, Snarf’s, CNBC and Breckenridge Brewery are all part of a package of concessions to be operated by Paradies Lagardère as part of an upcoming expansion of Concourse A. The airport is currently constructing six new temporary gates on the east end of the concourse to accommodate airline growth. These four concessions will primarily serve that new holding area, which is expected to open by the end of this year.

Denver Airport currently has a total of 77 restaurants, 43 shops and 45 cart and kiosk locations. In 2016, restaurants, stores and other services generated US$370,458,290 in sales.
