The ten best green rooms in Denver and Boulder

7. The Fillmore Auditorium, 1510 Clarkson Street
Behind the stage at the Fillmore are several production rooms and green rooms, along with vending for food and some bathrooms. When your favorite artists are making their way to the stage, the area is closed off with a curtain, so paparazzi can't snap a photo or two. When this happens, fans flock to the curtain in an attempt to catch a candid glimpse of their favorite artist. For the artists themselves, it's a short walk from the comfort and privacy of the green room.




6. 1STBANK Center, 11450 Broomfield Lane, Broomfield
The green rooms at the 1STBANK Center are located in the typical backstage location at the east end of the venue. Because the venue is so large and accommodates the arena-tour musicians, the green rooms are very well maintained. With perfect lighting and hotel-ready furnishings, this series of rooms takes the cake on quality. With such vast productions, it's expected that these green rooms will be the best. Arena tours require such a large production staff that they need to take care of, and 1STBANK seems to do it right.

5. Beta Nightclub, 1909 Blake Street

Seeing as how Beta has been named the top dance club in the States, it's only fair to conclude that the green room is equally as epic. With acts like Pauly D, Skrillex and 12th Planet passing through the doors of this world-renowned club, the green room has to be in tip-top shape. Since it's all DJs that stay, you can bet that the amount of champagne consumed on any given night rivals even that of the most epic happy hours. Should you ever get the chance to get behind the DJ booth and back in the green room, you will be in the presence of walls that were in the presence of greatness. That's kind of cool. (No photo: Beta's management declined our request to shoot the club's green room.)

My Voice Nation Help

The renovated green rooms at the Marquis deserve a mention, though the last time I was in there, we were literally the first bands to use them (fresh paint smell!).  The private bar at the Summit is pretty rad too -- I've never seen it elsewhere.  The Fox was certainly the most accommodating staff:


"Hey, what kind of beer do you want?" 

"What do you mean?" 

"Well, do you like good beer or cheap beer?"

"Um, good beer?"


We later three 12 packs of New Belgium and Sierra Nevada products chilled in a cooler -- for a four-piece band.  Suffice to say, we snuck more than a few out to audience members.


The nicest green rooms I've ever been in were at the Belly Up in Aspen, though it's obviously exempt from this list.  60" flat screen, oxygen machine, stocked fridge, great couches, great WiFi, etc.  That place is truly special.




Maybe the green room at Summit is nice but that's the only thing nice about that place.  That place is a dump


They have obviously never been in the Summit Music Hall green room, private bar and fooze ball table.
