If you’re a jam band fanatic, Denver is the place to be this summer with must-see concerts from Phish, Dave Matthew's Band, Greensky Bluegrass and more. 

Of course, the scene is nothing new here. Ever since The Grateful Dead (the original jam band) started playing the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the late 1970s, the Denver area has been a hotspot for great music and great times. This summer in The Mile High City is shaping up to be one long, strange — and fun — trip.

JAM BAND HOT SPOTS TO VISIT WHILE YOU'RE IN TOWN

If you're visiting Denver for shows this summer, don't miss out on these places to eat, drink and jam out.

QUIXOTE'S TRUE BLUE & SANCHO'S BROKEN ARROW

Quixote's True Blue and Sancho's Broken Arrow, two sister clubs, are ground zero for the city's jam band scene — warm, friendly spots that feature great live music virtually every night of the week. Check their respective calendars for more info. 

VINE STREET PUB & BREWERY

Vine Street Pub & Brewery, one of the grooviest additions to Denver's microbrewery scene, is all about the Grateful Dead on the sound system, juicy burgers (or veggie burgers) and a dedication to lovingly crafted beer.

MY BROTHER'S BAR

The forefathers of the jam band movement were the Beat Generation, and My Brother's Bar is a Mile High City institution known for its Beat Generation clientele. This watering hole was the bar of choice for renowned Beats like Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady in the 1950s. Today, not much has changed at My Brother's — you can still get a pint and a burger for under $10 and enjoy one of the city's coolest spots.
