Leave your worries behind at the 1-month-old La Bouche, where you can escape from Paris in a residential area at any time. After the mom-and-pop shop owners Alexis and Alexandra Tréton moved from their hometown of Paris to Denver at the end of 2020, they opened La Bouche at the end of September. The two fell in love with the city (they said, there is still sunshine), but when they arrived, they couldn't find a place to relax with a glass of wine and delicious delicatessen like in France. Therefore, La Bouche (meaning "mouth") was born to bridge the gap and blend the laid-back atmosphere of a French cafe with the unique culture of Colorado-in modern, bright black and white interiors and sun terraces. Trétons said they want La Bouche to be a place where people from both cultures can talk, forget their mobile phones, and enjoy each other's company while sipping a glass of wine slowly.
