Step into Denny’s Den to give yourself a little lift as you make your way through the busy day. Or take a break and make the world go away for a while. Dig on platters a-plenty, from The Chantels to Del Shannon, The Small Faces to Jimmy Reed. And so much more. Maybe some Basie and Kenton? Relax. You’ve earned it!
