The Daniels & Fisher Tower is a distinctive historic landmark located at 1101 16th Street in Denver, Colorado.Description and historyBuilt as part of the Daniels & Fisher department store in 1910, it was the tallest between the Mississippi River and the state of California at the time of construction, at a height of 325 feet (99 m). The building was designed by the architect Frederick Sterner and modeled after The Campanile (St. Mark's Bell Tower) at the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy. The 20-floor clock tower has clock faces on all four sides. May Company purchased Daniels & Fisher in 1958, and the store vacated the tower. When the store was demolished (ca. 1971), the tower was saved and renovated into residential and office space in 1981. A 2½ ton bell occupies the top two floors of the building, above the observation deck.The basement level of the tower has been home to Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret entertainment venue since 2006.The tower was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 3, 1969.

  • Was there for an informal vendor cocktail party. Truly unique perspective in a historic and novel setting. Elevator to the 17th floor. From there you walk up a few flights each level has landings where you can sit and relax. Phenomenal views of the clock interior. Reminiscent of many Hollywood movies. Very cool experience. On the downside was that the interior was somewhat dated and dirty. But not offensively so. Also the wiring was done as an afterthought with an unkempt and distracting look. Minor details, but they should be mentioned. Overall, fun place to spend a half an hour and get an amazing view of downtown Denver and the mountain range. Definitely go if you get the chance.
  • Laney's Clocktower Caberet is fun, sexy, and hilarious. They always put on a good show.
