Live Entertainment Venues in Denver, CO
Bust out the cowboy boots and tight jeans before heading out to the Grizzly Rose. Although the location is not the best (it's right off I-25 in a less than scenic industrial area), you can't beat it for country entertainment. The shows are diverse and the dance floor is jumping at the Grizzly Rose. Live music heats up this 40,000 square foot venue six nights a week and it's a great place to catch some up and coming acts (as well as some more "classic" shows). If you want to "walk the walk" in your cowboy boots, check out their dance lesson schedule.
Denver has its fair share of intimate, quirky live event venues and the Bluebird just may be one of the best. People love this place. Maybe it’s the friendly staff, ample bathrooms, the energetic ambiance or the historic charm. One of the advantages the Bluebird offers over some of Denver’s other small venues is a tiered floor. Everyone may be standing but the varying levels make it easier to see the stage wherever you are. The Colfax location is great, especially if you want to get a bite or a cocktail pre- or post-show. If you can see a show at the Bluebird, run don’t walk to the box office.
On the Northwest side of Denver you’ll find the Walnut Room just a few blocks away from Curtis Park. When you first walk in, you may not expect to find live entertainment (you’ll probably also notice that the bar looks pretty darn fun and the food looks great too!). But, if you walk towards the back, there is a separate room to see a show. The Walnut Room hosts some seriously respectable talent, which is great for live music fans because this place is known for the excellent sound quality and it is Cozy (yes, with a capital ‘C’).
