Rolling Stone's 20 Best Clubs in America

 #14 - The Bluebird Theater
The curvy-lettered, bright-blue neon marquee suggests a tiny, intimate club, but the Bluebird is actually a full-sized (400 capacity) room with a great balcony space. Built in 1913, then drastically renovated in the mid-Nineties, the Bluebird (at 3317 E. Colfax Avenue) regularly grabs rising stars like Japandroids, leaving bigger names to the larger Fillmore and Ogden theatres down the street.
Capacity: 400
Fun Fact: The theater was featured in the 1995 movie Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead.

  1. Released soon after his death I saw the film "Hendrix" here. I had stood 6 feet from Jimi at Denver Pop Festival 6/29/1969 as he played "Voodoo Child". His death still affects me, what a loss.
