RiNo’s seven-month-old Greenlight Lab, tucked discretely in the alley behind Denver Central Market, is a real-time laboratory from design firm LIVstudio. Customers test, and vote on, everything from the decor to the cocktails. The beverage menu, curated by bar manager Ty Webb (a veteran of the New York City bar scene), is split into two sections: The “beta” portion features trial selections such as a recent vodka concoction made with curry, cumin, and lime cordial. If you adore your beta beverage, weigh in via a comment card and it could land on the “approved” section, joining other customer favorites such as the Green Means Go (Montanya rum, pineapple-sage syrup, lime cordial, Falernum bitters, and soda water). 1336 27th St., 720-788-5320
