Real World Denver house now open as Theorie, a restaurant, martini bar, and wine store

The place where most of The Real World Denver‘s drama occurred has become Theorie, a restaurant and martini bar that opened last weekend. But although people may be getting drunk there, the space doesn’t look the same as it did on TV.

Specifically, “the pool that people saw on the TV show is missing, and the stairs have been removed. Now the entry is flanked by two long full-service bars, one on the three-season outdoor patio to the left and one inside the main bar area to the right. Inside, several dining areas offer elegant tables, cozy booths and two banquette-lined lounge areas,” The Denver Post reports. Patrons will have access to the upstairs area, however: “The second-floor living space, once home to many a reality-TV drama scene, will open soon as a new wine store.”

The space was sold by MTV for $3.3 million and was to be re-opened as Abbey, but as the paper reports, “[t]he name was changed just prior to opening from The Abbey to Theorie because of a copyright conflict with a different establishment.”
