The owner, Jimmy Nigg, says he plans to have music there at least twice a week, with a focus on local acts. He says he wants this to be a place where people can experience Denver's local culture, in both drink and music form.

Nigg also says he might try to expand the bar or add more music, depending on how the next few months go.
