The Lava Room, inside the Reserve Hotel and Casino in Central City, is a 300-capacity live-music venue that brings in national artists, including a number of classic-rock acts, and it’s just about the best spot to see live entertainment in the area. Once inside, you'll forget that you’re in a small mountain town: With its modern furnishings and state-of-the-art sound system ? not to mention a dance floor, sunken stage and three levels of seating ? the Lava Room feels much more like an urban club. Adding to that vibe are VIP sections and a heated outdoor smoking patio opposite the stage.
