Café York

  

Axum Ethiopian Cuisine, at 5501 E. Colfax Avenue, used to be Café York which was one of the premier listening rooms in America in the 1970's. Jimmy Buffett played his 1st shows in Denver here.

  1. Around 1971 I used to go see some good music acts at Cafe York. Michael (Martin) Murphy was hardly known then but played there, before "Geronimo's Cadillac" & "Wildfire" ... Also the comic that was killed in a plane crash with Jim Croce, George Stevens. Cafe York kind of specialized in booking people BEFORE they got big, if they did.

  2. I was pretty young in the 70s but remember when it was the Athenian. I had no idea of the history. I have a lot of memories in this building.
