Cathy Cooney-GreenGeneral Manager
Cathy Cooney-Green is a decades-long Palm veteran who grew up in the restaurant business and serves as President of the Mile High Chapter of the Colorado Restaurant Association. You’ll find Cathy at The Palm on every holiday: “For me,” she says, “Thanksgiving is like having 700 of my closest friends over for dinner. I have a huge family because of all my regulars.” Cathy is proud both of the murals and caricatures gracing her walls, including a series in the bar area featuring mascots from the city’s many sports teams, and the The Palm Denver-invented cocktail The Hanging Chad, now offered across the country in all Palm restaurants. She counts as one of the many highpoints of her career the night she hosted the World Series party at The Palm Denver after the Colorado Rockies played the Red Sox in the final game. The Palm Denver actively supports community initiatives, in particular the Men’s Event benefiting the University of Colorado Cancer Center.
