First Look: Dazzle Swings Into Downtown

First Look: Dazzle Swings Into Downtown
Danielle Lirette
If you're a jazz fan in Denver, you probably spent some time at Dazzle, where live music kept the Golden Triangle and Capitol Hill neighborhoods swinging for nearly twenty years. But the hip hangout closed in May, leaving a void in the scene — until last night, that is, when Dazzle held a grand-opening party at its new downtown digs, in the former Baur's Restaurant and Listening Lounge space at 1512 Curtis Street.

A bigger stage, more seating and a high-tech sound system means an improved experience for jazz aficionados, and a new menu from executive chef Mario Godoy, who brings his Italian chops after more than two decades at Piatti, adds to the music and cocktail experience.

The restaurant and club are now open every night but Monday, with a complete schedule of live entertainment. See our Dazzle grand-opening slideshow for more photos.
