About Earnest Hall

Earnest Hall pays homage to the original Ernie’s Supper Club opened by Ernie Capillupo in this building in 1948 – and an entire generation of Italian Americans who taught us a little something about friends, family and neighbors gathering to enjoy a meal.

We hand-make our own pizza dough and sauce and everyday.  While the menu is contemporary, the kitchen is one of the few left in Denver to still make fresh pizza dough every morning and hand-stretch that same dough to order for guests every night.  Earnest Hall focuses on craft brews on tap, features a thoughtful wine list and classic cocktails.

Composting & Recycling

Earnest Hall is dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint.  We have worked hard to develop an extensive waste reduction program and strive to compost and recycle everything we can.

Hospitality Included

We have adopted a ‘Service Included’ model that enables us to provide equitable compensation for everyone who participates in your service.  We are committed to paying fair wages to our entire staff, both those historically dependent on gratuities as well as our hard-working, heart-of-house team members.  A 20% service fee will be added to your check, and as always, we are grateful for your patronage.  For more information, click here.
