The Mile High City knows how to shimmy, and it shows in the city’s diverse dance floors. From hip-hop to techno, from line-dancing to break-dancing, Denver’s dance floors boast a beat for everyone. Plan your evening and start exploring the best clubs in Denver.
Rolling Stone dubbed Beta Nightclub "Best Dance Club in America" in 2013, and it's easy to see why. Beta brings in some of the country's best DJs and then blasts their beats on the club's 72,000-watt sound system. Spend an evening on the enormous dance floor for a night you won't soon forget.
CERVANTES' MASTERPIECE / THE OTHER SIDE
This Welton-Street venue has been attracting Mile-High music fans since the building's early days as the Casino Cabaret, when it hosted the likes of Duke Ellington, James Brown, B.B. King, Ray Charles and Tina Turner. Although Cervantes' Masterpiece and The Other Side operate independently of each other, the two sides are connected, allowing patrons to flow back and forth.
The only country western bar in downtown Denver, Cowboy Lounge offers country and rock music. The atmosphere captures the true spirit of the Wild West with its cowboy flare. Guests enjoy a spacious dance floor, dance lessons and video screens.
This historic Grizzly Rose, a world-famous honky tonk, has hosted almost every major country star, from Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson to Faith Hill and Taylor Swift. This cavernous venue provides live music six nights a week, country dancing, two-step and line dance lessons, national touring acts and not one but two mechanical bulls. Yeehaw!
LODO'S BAR & GRILL
Lodo's offers a 3,000-square-foot patio overlooking Coors Field in the heart of — where else — LoDo (Lower Downtown). But downstairs you'll find a hopping dance floor, pool tables and an array of tasty American cuisine.
OPHELIA'S ELECTRIC SOAPBOX
The latest addition to chef and restaurateur Justin Cucci's Edible Beats restaurant group — which includes Root Down (a converted filling station) and Linger (a former mortuary) — Ophelia's Electric Soapbox is also one of Denver's hottest new dance spots. This "gastrobrothel" is housed in the historic Airedale building, which has been, at various times, a brothel, peep-show parlor and adult bookstore. Ophelia's history is celebrated in the sensual decor and on the large sunken stage and dance floor.
Catering to the Downtown crowd and post-game sports fans, Tavern Downtown offers a beautiful bar, fireplace, lounge, plasma television screens, game room, dining room and, of course, a great dance floor.
