This is an old White Spot location, circa early-1960s, now Davies’ Chuck Wagon II. (Pictures of Davies’ Chuck Wagon I can be found here.)

The White Spots were designed by Armet & Davis, the firm famous for their Los Angeles coffee shop architecture, a style referred to as Googie. (Though the Googie’s restaurant itself was designed by John Lautner)

This design is different than the other Denver White Spots, I guess I would call this a butterly roof with an additional fold.

I like the way they had the White Spot signposts penetrate the rooflines.

The interior has been refurbished over the years, but you can still appreciate the vaulted ceilings and flowing counters. I have also posted pictures of another former White Spot on my new site, the Denver Eye.
