2018 Colorado FIVE member - Sommelier Kendra Anderson

I first met Kendra Anderson, owner of Bar Helix, early this year when we kicked off the 2018 Colorado FIVE season. I just can’t express strongly enough how much I admire her passion and ardency and over-all food knowledge. She’s a sommelier through-and-through. Her palette and understanding of flavor profiles is second to none. I think this is why she has such a deep understanding of wine and spirits, and it shows in the Bar Helix offerings. She graciously offered her space to be used when it was my turn to host a FIVE event in May. Wow, when I walked into Bar Helix to get a sense of the space, my eyes collided with the sexy, shimmering of rose-gold and metallic notes contrasting with pink street graffiti.

It was this graffiti that inspired a K-town dinner. Kendra and her staff welcomed and accommodated the FIVE team to the Nth degree. Her employees’ level of professionalism, excitement, and eagerness to work hard, echo Kendra’s leadership and commitment to excellence. She embraces the collaborative spirit and community support which is so important in our industry. Kendra regularly features DJ’s, offers themed brunches, and has Pop-Up style events inside Bar Helix, pairing spirits with some of Denver’s best food. If you haven’t visited, it’s a must! Read her bio below and learn how she has come to be one of Denver’s leading culinary forces!
