The ten best green rooms in Denver and Boulder

Categories: Best of Denver

4. City Hall, 1144 Broadway, Denver

The green room at City Hall is massive (not pictured). Connected to the communal portion of the venue, which also happens to double as Club 2AM when the rest of the lights go out, the green room can hold nearly fifty people. Not that any artist needs fifty people back stage, but for larger events that require a grand production, this is the best one around. With multiple couches, tables and access to hydration, this green room is easily the most comfortable in the downtown area. Its seclusion from the stage is minimal, but security is always on point with ensuring artist privacy.

3. Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 18300 West Alameda Parkway, Morrison
There is an entire network of rooms and tunnels underneath the stage at Red Rocks. With the biggest acts in the world passing through, the green rooms need to be on-point. The on-site catering company takes care of the food, which is always delicious, hot and fresh, while the hospitality crew takes care of any other problems. Artist riders can be complex, and this helps them know that all details have been appropriately accounted for. Red Rocks takes care of its artists in the best way possible, and its green rooms attest to this.



2. The Ogden Theatre, 935 East Colfax Avenue
In 2011, the Ogden Theatre sold 112,643 tickets to shows at the Colfax venue. That's a lot of tickets. That's a lot of shows. That's a lot of musicians piling into the venue to take over the green room. Artists know when they come to Denver to expect something amazing, and that goes for all aspects of the tour stop. The green room at the Ogden sees the most popular music acts currently touring, so you know it's one for the books.

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.
