The burger concept from chef Troy Guard will be reopening with a new location in spring 2024.

Restaurateur and Chef Troy Guard’s TAG Restaurant Group (TRG) announces the reopening of TAG Burger Bar, the beloved and chef-focused burger concept and neighborhood hangout that was previously a decade-long stable in Denver’s Congress Park. The new restaurant will have a new location, opening in Central Park at 10155 E. 29th Drive. TAG Burger Bar is poised to reemerge as Denver’s premier burger destination, boasting a vibrant, relaxing atmosphere and exceptional cuisine.

Says Guard, “We’re thrilled to reintroduce TAG Burger Bar to Denver. This establishment was cherished by the community pre-pandemic, and it’s returning to Central Park even bigger and better.”

The Congress Park location of TAG Burger Bar closed in 2021–after a decade-long–tenure due to the expiration of its lease and ongoing pandemic challenges. During that time, TAG Restaurant Group shifted focus to its other four concepts – HashTAG, Guard and Grace, Bubu, and Los Chingones. The team is now prepared to continue growing the brand and revive this beloved burger bar, along with a new concept, the cocktail bar, Done Deal, opening downtown in January 2024.

Fans of the original TAG Burger Bar can expect to see familiar favorites from Chef Guard including his classic but innovative burgers, boozy milkshakes, and weekend brunch, along with a few new recipes.

Says Guard, “This location will not feel like an old concept, but will return as a livelier and more modern restaurant, much like our other brands. We are so excited to bring back TAG Burger Bar and continue the growth of TAG Restaurant Group throughout Denver.”

Guard has been a longtime advocate and face of the Denver dining scene. Guard owns and operates Guard and Grace, his flagship restaurant and award-winning take on the modern steakhouse, the quick-casual Bubu with locations in Republic Plaza and Granite Tower, Los Chingones, the bold Mexican restaurant with four locations throughout Denver and Fort Collins, and the Boozy Brunch hotspot,  HashTAG with locations in Central Park and Highlands Ranch. TAG Burger Bar is the latest announcement from the fast expanding restaurant group with both a third HashTAG, and the new cocktail bar concept, Done Deal, opening in downtown Denver in 2024. 

TAG Restaurant Group (TRG) is a Denver-based restaurant collection founded by Chef Troy Guard. TRG currently operates four concepts over eleven locations in the Denver metro area and Houston: Los Chingones (five locations), Guard and Grace (two locations), Bubu (three locations) and HashTAG. In 2019, TAG Restaurant Group made its first move out of Denver, expanding the award-winning Guard and Grace to Houston, Texas.
