Pistol Whip restaurant on Santa Fe Drive for sale after four months in business

A little over four months after opening on Santa Fe Drive, the New American restaurant Pistol Whip is for sale for $3 million.

The 5,250-square-foot corner lot was renovated earlier this year with a 160-seat dining room, patio and new kitchen. Husband-and-wife owners John and Holly Slaughter had planned Pistol Whip (including the name) for a decade before opening in May. They also run a tattoo shop next door called Tribe.

“We’re just trying to find, more or less, people who want to invest,” Holly told The Denver Post by phone on Friday. “There’s a bunch of scenarios we’re looking for.”

She noted that they are currently in talks with potential buyers.
