Beta

1909 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-383-1909

Location Description:

It's not the state-of-the-art sound system, the primo location in LoDo or the crowds of beautiful people that make Beta Denver's best dance club (though none of that hurts). No, it's the high-caliber talent the place brings in week after week. Beta has hosted a cavalcade of talent that reads like a who's who of the world's top dance-music acts.

Business Description

Beta Nightclub’s audio, visual, lighting and effects system is designed to complement the DJ and nightlife experience. With multiple innovations and constant evolution of the nightly production elements, we strive to bring a full sensory experience to all of our customers. We are GREEN! We designed Beta to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The Beatport Lounge is 100% green and not just the color. The whole club was designed with this in mind by using sustainable products. Since our grand opening, we’ve made it a point to reduce, reuse, reclaim, recycle and use sustainable materials throughout Beta. We also institute a recycling program for our output by installing recycle centers at major traffic points in the club so that patrons can discard glass, plastic, aluminum and paper products appropriately for our environment.
