J. S. Brown Mercantile
1899, Gove and Walsh. 1988, restoration, Joe Simmons. 1634 18th St. (at Wynkoop St.) (NR)

One of the city's more elaborate warehouses rises to fifth-story round arches that echo the large, recessed street windows. Exterior walls are red pressed brick, with sandstone trim and a rough quartzite foundation. The original interior was finished in Oregon pine and oak, with maple floors. In 1988 this heavy-duty building was remodeled for Denver's first brew pub, including a second-floor pool hall. Pressed metal ceilings reflect sound downward to keep brewpub and pool hall commotion from disturbing the upper-level lofts.
