You Beta, You Beta, You Bet

Here’s the scene: It’s getting late on Christmas night, the orgy of gift-giving was over hours ago, and you’ve eaten enough to hibernate through the winter. Grandpa’s head is beginning to bob, the board games are coming out — and you’re all out of spiked ’nog. Now is the time to get your young, vibrant self out of the family room and on to the dance floor. Now is the time to go to Beta.

With the ambition to be the best nightclub in North America, Beta took over the former Rise earlier this year offering greener pastures — an unsurpassed sound system and, you guessed it, a lighter carbon footprint. It’s certainly succeeded as a great club in Denver.

Tonight from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m., Beta becomes a Winter Wonderland where the usual Thursday act, the Triad Dragons (DJs Dragon + Trajikk + Kostas), and Hycloud will be taking turns turning tables. Santa will be there, too, with his Naughty Little Ho Ho Hos and a bag of goodies for the naughty and the nice.

Tickets are $10 at the door; the party is eighteen-and-up. Beta is in LoDo, at 1909 Blake Street. For more information, go to or call the Beta hotline at 303-383-1909.
Thu., Dec. 25, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., 2008
