Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom

2637 Welton St. Denver, CO 80205 | Downtown Denver | 303-297-1772

Location Description:

As the Casino Cabaret, this venue was one of Five Points' legendary jazz clubs, dating back to the '30s, when it brought in such legends as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman; over the years, folks like B.B. King, Ray Charles and Ike and Tina Turner played there, too. And when the trio behind Quixote's took over the space in 2003, they geared the music more toward Deadheads and jam bands. But when new owners took over again in 2010, they renovated the main floor, added a larger stage, relocated the soundboard and made other improvements. Musically, the focus has shifted more toward dubstep, electronica, hip-hop acts and DJs, along with bluegrass and jam-centric bands.
