As Denver continues to grow with no sign of slowing down, so does our ice cream consumption, thanks in part to Little Man Ice Cream Co.
Paul Tamburello and team, the minds behind the ever-popular Little Man Ice Cream in LoHi, Constellation in East Bridge and Old Town Churn in Fort Collins (to name a few), launched a new concept that will dish out the sweet treat in style.
DANG Soft Serve Ice Cream, nestled in the shops at Oneida Park in Park Hill, is the sixth member of the family. Little Man Ice Cream, known for its iconic architecture inspired by roadside attractions, has taken on a more modern twist with the new shop.
DANG offers a menu of soft serve ice cream and French fries to satisfy both your sweet and savory taste buds. Eight flavors of soft serve will be available solo or swirled every day, including two Vegan options. The Bomb Cyclone, DANG’s signature specialty, is a hurricane of blended twists and toppings (over 30 to choose from!) made to order.
The artistic toppings and colorful flavors will be served against a dramatic, modern setting inspired by 80s pop culture, street art, vinyl and bold splashes of color.
The space was designed by Melissa Friday and Dana Ensing of Xan Creative. In collaboration with graphic designer, Ben Giese, they pulled inspiration from the electric patterns and colors of 80's pop culture. Bold black and white patterns punctuate an oversized canted awning, glass window walls and color blocks splatter the space in striking hues of purple, fuchsia, turquoise and royal. Melting lava-lamp-like murals wrap the bathroom walls. Quirky pop-art chairs look like outstretched hands.
Like all Little Man shops, DANG will participate in the Scoop for Scoop program, specifically donating a percentage of its sales to support young and burgeoning artists and musicians in the Park Hill neighborhood.
Bring your friends and be ready to rock out after treating your taste buds to some long-awaited soft serve ice cream.
