Negroni fountain. Kendra Anderson, the glamorous owner of Bar Helix in RiNo, knows how to throw one hell of a party. Collaborating with Abigail Plonkey (MaximalistXD, Thrice) and Bar Helix compatriot Victoria Errio, the trio created a subterranean homage to all things Negroni in honor of the cocktail’s 100th anniversary and the upcoming Negroni Week (June 24–30). Myriad Denver chefs and bartenders drank and danced, and—best yet—the merriment was fueled by a flowing Negroni fountain (that we wanted to steal for ourselves).
