"What We Love: The month-old design collective (housed in a former auto-body shop and NSFW theater) includes the second location of modern showroom Mod Livin’ and a group of tenants who showcase their wares together (so you’re sure to get the look you want). While you’re there, stop to admire the original red “Empire” marquee sign out front."
RADAR/SCENE : "OPEN HOUSE"
"And in an open-air marketplace in RiNo, design collective Modern Nomad (2936 Larimer St.), which opened in November, offers vintage and new furniture, rugs, lighting, textiles and home accessories from popup shops and permanent tenants, including Mod Livin’s second Denver location and Modern Nomad Home’s first. Once home to the 1951 Empire movie theater, the 5,500-square-foot space still sports the venue’s original marquee while showing off modern-industrial details like concrete floors, a barrel roof supported by steel trusses and two 16-foot-tall drive-in doors."
