Bistro Vendome

Cocktail By Barbara Silbernagel

Bistro Vendome

2267 Kearney Street, Denver, CO 80207

“Place Vendôme, considered a favorite among Parisians, is a renowned historic square located the heart of Paris. This is purposefully a bistro, not a café nor a brasserie. The selection of the name “Bistro Vendôme” reflects the desired image in the community: a local neighborhood favorite rich with history that offers an exceptional dining experience in a charming, neighborhood setting.”

Meet Barbara Silbernagel


I started my bartending career at Bistro 2 years ago. I love the creative outlet this industry has given me and aspire to work outside the box when creating craft cocktails. One of my favorite things about bartending is tailoring to the guests experience; not only making them a drink they will love, but having it compliment their meal as well

The Inspiration

The inspiration for C’est La Vie was traditional fall flavors with a twist. I envision this drink complementing any of our savory dishes, or to enjoy as an aperitif prior to a delicious fall meal.
