HISTORY Syntax: Physic Opera is the physical manifestation of the Denver Syntax (, our 10 year-old music, art and literary review. The publication has endured, showcasing hundreds upon hundreds of Colorado creatives. Through multitudes of events (i.e., The Living Room Series and A Moveable Feast, in particular) as well as talent buying duties at Meadowlark during its golden days, Syntax has successfully created a forum for local artists and musicians. To advocate for them. To watch them grow. And no, this isn't a hippie commune, it's the ethos that we culled from years of working with artists - seeing the good in them and hearing what it is that they need from a venue, from a talent buyer, the sound guy and what their long term goals are for their art. AIM The Physic Opera is a place for BLUE COLLAR CREATIVES. We want the working artist and musician to post-up, to sit back. Drink off our tap, eat from our pots. We will have daily specials for the working artisan: to provide a respite from their day or a sandwich to-go back with them to the studio or the den. Sit in a dark corner, or seek dialogues with other players, painters and writers. FOOD Our food menu, created by Chef David Beckwith, is a blend of 19th century Denver fare - updated. Small plates, to share with friends. Clean. Straightforward. We want a full head and heart, not a bloated gut. COCKTAILS Our cocktails have been crafted by the worldy Charles Anderson and will riff off early Denver history, bringing together the old world of Snake Oil and Corn Punk with the new topography in mixology, with fresh herbs, as well as the finest local spirits and bitters of this burgeoning region. ENTERTAINMENT Thursday through Saturday we will have our big productions: 3 and 4 band bills. Every night will have different entertainment: with live jazz during and after supper, storyteller "show and tell" evenings, and our weekly open stage talent show. So pick your time, bring your date, share some plates of food before the lighted stage. Here, everything is medicine. And don't forget: we have TONS OF PARKING. On the street and behind the building. You'll never have to worry about finding a spot on our stretch, even when we're packed.

I like this place a lot more when I'm NOT drinking - seems to be an odd inversion, no? Love the stage. It's downright magical. Like a cinematic cross... Read more
