It Began With an Idea

A Little Bit About Us

Jim Askins and Tay Wilbanks have long shared a passion for environments that foster great friendships & long-lasting memories served alongside interesting dishes and favorite cocktails. That passion has evolved into the desire to bring all of the things they have loved at other bars into their own bistro bar in the heart of downtown Denver. Jim, with a diverse background in international operations and sales, site management and professional development provides fiscal and budget oversight for The Greedy Hamster. Tay’s background in visual communications – specifically in advertising/creative development and management for a portfolio of international and national hospitality clients – puts her at the helm of concept & team development, food and beverage programming and daily management for The Greedy Hamster.
