Denver is home to a thriving and diverse live music scene, so it’s no surprise that the city has a variety of venues ranging from unique to traditional. There is something for every taste in the Mile High City, from cozy jazz bars to stadium seating to a self-described “gastro-brothel.”
The live music in Denver tonight scenes are quite diverse. There is a venue nearby, no matter where you are in the city, with venues extending into the foothills and as far as the Denver Tech Center.
Summit Music Hall
The Summit Music Hall in LoDo has changed during the last few years. Summit has developed into a terrific venue in the middle of the city, with hard-rock bookings, a flow of performances across a spectrum of genres, and a significant refurbishment that just finished last year. Even smaller touring artists can fit in the venue’s 1,000+ capacity venue companion offshoot, the Moon Room. Even a pizza restaurant offers hot slices all night long. What might be superior?
The Capitol Hill area is well-known for its excellent coffee shops, plenty of exquisite eateries that would make any foodie swoon, and fantastic music venues. One such location is the Ogden Theatre, which hosts two to five performances each week. This facility, which is on East Colfax Avenue, only allows public admission, so arrive early to secure the ideal floor area. The Ogden is by far one of Denver’s most important venues, offering a diverse range of genres, nearly constant sell-out attendance, and comedy shows in Denver.
Dazzle offers daily music as well as a full-service meal and is the ideal fusion of a supper club and a real jazz bar. A Denver tradition for gastronomic pleasures spanning decades, this fan-favorite jazz club has been operating since the late 1990s and is now housed in the almost 150-year-old Baur Confectionery Building in downtown Denver. Dazzle’s intimate performances, which include improvisational jazz performers from all over the world, give its ancient Baur location fresh life. Make your lunch or dinner a musical experience, then return for the wildly popular weekend brunch.
The mainstay of venues for up-and-coming musicians, Larimer Lounge is a Denver institution. Larimer Lounge is a classic rock club venue with cheap beer, sweat-covered flooring, and a knack for cramming the room to the ceiling and blasting the night out of this setting. It serves as a launch pad for both local and national performers.
This RiNo bar is a living, breathing temple to jazz music. Almost every night of the week, the bi-level bar and dinner club only play music in the jazz genre. The theatre offers an artist-in-residence program where performers alternate between concentrating on musical greats and their own unique work for six to eight weeks. Nocturne is the place to go if you’re a genre purist.
Zio Romolo’s Alley Bar
Tony Pasquini and his mother Judy are the owners of Tony P’s Pizzeria, and they also run the nearby Zio Romolo’s Alley Bar. Zio Romolo’s, which was once a functioning alleyway, is decorated in Art Deco style and furnished with vintage items from the 1930s and 1940s, including a cash register and matchbook dispenser. The tiny venue also offers free live music on most Friday and Saturday nights.
When Chris Swank, owner of the Bluebird Theater across the street and Mezcal next door, purchased the Goosetown Tavern from the Wynkoop Group in 2014, he had a new stage built as well as the new sound and lighting systems installed. The Goosetown Tavern had previously been just a great neighborhood hangout. Live music has since gained a lot more attention, from rock and punk performances to regular karaoke and open-mic events in Denver.
