Milk

Milk is a true underground club in the lower portion of the historical Jonas Bros. Furs building. Multiple rooms create one of the best nightlife atmospheres in Denver, from the checkered Milk Bar styled after the cult classic milk bar in Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange to the cozy Jazz Room with it’s posh seating and private allure to the Green Room, Red Room, and Arcade Room, so make sure to completely explore the whole facility to get the full Milk experience. Milk is 21+ always! Click upcoming events at Milk to reserve a table or sign up for Guest List!

Temple Denver

What many have called “the Future of Denver’s nightlife,” Temple Denver is a must stop for those looking to rage. This hotspot has been attracting big names and fun crowds long enough to establish itself as one of the premier go-to spots in Denver.

Of course Temple is for the people, but Temple prides itself on being a venue created for artists. Local and internationally reknowned names rarely find a location that can compliment their style the way Temple does. If your not a big artist, fear not because Temple offers bottle service for those who want to feel like a rockstar for a couple hours.

This venue is great for any event, Hip Hop or EDM, but make sure to see upcoming events at Temple to see who’s performing.

Dorchester Social

Dorchester Social is one of the new Hip Hop hotspots in Denver at the moment. As a patron exclaims “The place is PACKED, and the music is good and the drinks are priced great.”

Dorchester Soail also has an upstairs portion that is indoor/outdoor. The club is 4:20 friendly, so you can smoke weed in the upstairs portion if you like. But be warned, it will get hella hazy up there, so steer clear if you can’t handle it. Also, the club is in reasonable walking distance to most of the downtown hotels and restaurants so just walk it out and save the money you had stashed for an Uber. Dorchester Social is a highly reviewed bar that tends to play Hip Hop more then anything else.

The Church

The Church is an old church that was bought and converted into an iconic Denver nightclub. Completed in 1889, this former place of worship is now home to dance worshippers and gets pumping Friday through Sunday. This place is one of our favorites. I mean, how many venues let you tell the story where you can reserve bottle service and table in a church? Not many we know of.

The high-beamed Gothic architecture & stained glass windows are accompanied by new state of the art lighting design and the top-rated Void Acoustics Incubus Sound system. This is one of Denver’s top tier dance club experience that draws the best from international DJs and cutting edge talent weekly. Make sure to see upcoming events at the Church to see who’s next!

Best EDM clubs in Denver, Colorado

Today we’re off to Denver and no, we’re not going to discuess the fact that Denver is the city known for creating the cheeseburger or the fact that Denver brews more beer then any other city in the US, which is totally awesome. No, today we dive headfirst into the growing EDM scene that has begun to spring about all over the great city of Denver. Strap in. Here we go.

Temple

A venue for artists, by artists, Temple Nightclub offers a nightlife experience that is unrivaled in the Mile High region. From awe-inspiring, fully immersive state of the art lighting and visuals, to a thundering custom sound system, paired with world-class talent, bottle service and theatrical production, this place is like no other. The party usually kicks off around 9PM, so make sure to check upcoming events at Temple Nightclub so not to miss your favorite DJ’s.

Upon entering through the motion activated light corridor, you teleport into a higher dimension of nightlife. The 3 story main room cathedral elicits a sense of excitement and grandeur. A nightclub atmosphere of unparalleled cohesiveness, all theatrical lighting and production elements were conceptualized and designed for the entire room to act as a single organism pulsating to the rhythm of a single heartbeat. 

In the sub level lies the main dancefloor where guests will find a custom DJ booth, thundering Funktion One sound system and 50,000 addressable, floor-to-ceiling LED bulbs. Surrounding the dance floor are four VIP booths and a two tiered stadium seating platform comprising 8 VIP sections which offer a high-energy experience for guests who wish to be in the center of the action. At the forefront of the dance floor is the main stage, which has been designed specifically to showcase Temple’s world-renowned artists, DJs, and performers. The main room is complete with 8 mezzanine tables that hover above the main dance floor, offering unparalleled and immersive views of the action in a private setting. 

The sound system at Temple Denver has been designed to provide the ultimate listening experience. Through decades of constant refinement and testing, Funktion One has achieved a level of fidelity across the frequency spectrum that was previously unheard of at night club sound pressure levels. The low frequencies provided by the newest Funktion One F221 woofers and BR132A subwoofers are configured in a non-conventional manner. The BR132 is perhaps one of the only true, high output subwoofers in the world.

Temple Denver is 1 of only 3 venues in the United States to have this innovative technology and has achieved what many nightclubs have attempted, but failed to accomplish; the feat of producing the ultimate sound experience of a pulsating system that is not overbearing to conversations or harming to the audible senses.

The Church

You might be wondering, is this real? Yes it is. Will God judge me for raging in a former house of worship? I can’t answer that, but what I can tell you is raging is an understatement. This place throws down. Imagine a festival. Now imagine putting a three-story church on top of that festival. There you go. Welcome to The Church.

The venue features stained-glass windows, high-beamed gothic architecture and hundreds of candles spread throughout the Church suggest a pious vibe in the past house of worship, but the congregation is as mixed as they come. Built-in 1865, the roomy, multi-level Lincoln Street mainstay draws globally based DJs, local residents, retro lovers, even the under-21 set: Sections of the bar are open to those 18 and up. A rooftop patio affords one of the city’s best views. Confessional booths, although maybe more needed then ever, have been replaced with bottle service tables, available to anyone looking to party hard. To see what’s happening at The Church this weekend, make sure to check out upcoming events at the Church.

Club Vinyl

Club Vinyl is a beast of a space that occupies four distinct floors in an old industrial setting. From the basement to the rooftop (open and comfortable every day, despite Colorado’s weather), there’s a different vibe going on on each floor. The basement’s dark with glowing bottle service tables lining the sides of the room coupled with a distinct underground feeling. The main floor above it is similar but with much more production; a Funktion One sound system, a space to chill in the back of the room, and two designated bottle service booths.

There is lots of seating outside, including fire pits, heaters for when it’s cool out, and misters for when it’s warm. You can also rent out hookahs on the rooftop. The inside features even more bottle service tables and a second Funktion One sound system. Off of the main floor is a patio for smoking. The second floor splits into two halves—one half is called the Glass Lounge, which is primarily used as a private events space, and the other half has bottle service booths, pool tables and a dancefloor where you can usually find circles of people breakdancing to Top 40 music.

The rooftop is partially enclosed on one half, partially exposed to the elements on the other half. Up and coming EDM DJs are always found throwing down new underground music not yet ruined by popularity. This venue is an EDM junkie’s dream, so make sure to check out upcoming events at Club Vinyl to catch your favorite DJs!

Bar Standard

Once the home of Serengeti and Shelter, Bar Standard is an Art Deco-themed, modern-day speakeasy. While the name and look may have changed, the club, housed in the former Jonas Bros. Furs building, still brings in some of the area’s best DJs — who spin house and dance music — as well as more high-profile national DJs. In addition, Bar Standard occasionally brings in live acts like the Cool Kids to perform on stage. The main area of the upscale club fills up quickly on the weekends, but there are two patios, both of which offer gorgeous views of Denver’s skyline, to escape the masses. Make sure to check out upcoming events at Bar Standard to see what’s going down!

This is definietly one of the coolest spots in Denver. Few clubs that I know of offer both a rooftop bar as well as an inside dance hall. This is definitely a place worth checking out.

The Black Box

Last but not least, Black Box. This venue is a refuge from the everyday, a home for experimentation and heart felt emotion. Their mission is simple, to move people through sound. They host a wide range of genres, allowing patrons from all walks to experience the power of music on a proper sound system. The dual room venue is fully equipped with the powerful, state-of-the-art Basscouch Sound consisting of a Tannoy, Funktion-One, and Othorn combination. A haven for artists, audiophiles, and partygoers alike, The Black Box is headquarters for Colorado’s underground music community.

The club itself is intimate with dark lights, and lots of lazers. Needless to say this is a totally different experience from big venues where you catch what some might call “radio DJs”. Instead, The Black Box aims to give EDM goers a more intmitate experience with music thats up and coming.

Honorable Mention: Red Rocks Amphitheater

Now, I know exactly what you are probably thinking right now. This is not a club, so why is it on the top EDM clubs in Denver? The Red Rock Amphitheater is not a club. However, this venue deserves a shoutout as it has recently been attracting some of the biggest names in EDM and I felt it was only fair to let my EDM bretheran know where to find that next epic party.

Big Wild & Whethan, Above and Beyond, Rezz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Snails b2b Kill the Noise, Illenium, Troyboi and deadMau5 are among the many who are coming or have come to Red Rocks to preform. And there will be others. Althought not a club, Red Rocks Amphitheater has brought some of the biggest names in electronic dance music to Denver, and so I felt it necessary to throw in the mix.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre for those who don’t know is a beautfiul open-air amphitheatre built into a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado and is located 10 miles west of Denver.

Temple Denver to Launch Second Room

Temple Nightclub, which launched ten years ago in San Francisco and opened a location in Denver in October, will debut Lvl, a second, smaller room inside the club at 1144 Broadway, on New Year’s Eve. The new space will spotlight house and bass music on alternating nights.

Lvl’s design incorporates the sci-fi spaceship theme of Temple’s Vegas-style main room, which will continue to host larger EDM acts, with laser light shows, confetti cannons and a Funktion-One sound system.

The new room will boast an eight-foot-wide stage where DJs will perform, a small area for bottle service, another Funktion-One sound system and video projection, says Temple founder Paul Hemming. While the main room spotlights international acts, Lvl will host more local talent, starting with the club’s New Year’s Eve party.

Lvl will be open on weekends alongside the nightclub, allowing guests to go back and forth between the two. Hemming also hopes to use it on Wednesday nights to host smaller parties, nonprofit fundraisers and other events.

Temple is part of Hemming’s larger arts, entertainment and lifestyle complex, the Zen Compound; elements will continue to roll out over the next few months. In February he’ll open Mirus Gallery, which will double as a coffee shop, and in March he’ll debut a co-working space.

Hemming is also looking into renting office space from buildings close to Temple Denver, exploring an alternative currency system to use within the Zen Compound, and otherwise furthering his vision of a space where people can work by day and party by night.

Temple Denver Grand Opening

Temple Nightclub Denver is poised to make a splash on the Denver nightlife scene. They are hungry to give the city’s dance music fans a new home with an upscale feel.  Temple held their soft launch on Halloween weekend, featuring Blasterjaxx on Friday and Showtek on Saturday.

Friday evening’s entertainment was nothing short of amazing. It started off with an opening set that had everyone dancing on the dance floor. Temple also brought out the legendary Kryoman for a surprise show. The main event commenced when Blasterjaxx took the stage and blew the crowd away with bass-heavy sounds on the house’s awe-inspiring Funktion One sound system. As he threw down banger after banger, the crowd cheered and danced their hearts out. Denver’s EDM fanatics welcomed Temple’s dance floor with open arms.

The club itself boasts three levels of space with tables for bottle service and a bar on each floor for customers to enjoy. Partygoers can enjoy a dance floor that is spacious and open with enough room for everyone to dance comfortably. The dark decor with glowing neon accents synced with the beat to  create a wonderful atmosphere. The centerpiece of the club however, is their beautiful ceiling of LEDs that rolls from top of the club down the wall behind the DJ booth. It produced beautiful visuals and added to the environment of the club all night long. The club’s staff was just as inviting and hospitable as the club itself. Everyone seemed excited for the night’s events.

Temple Nightclub Denver is the second nightclub in the Temple family, with the first being Temple San Francisco. The clubs are famous for the innovative designs and use of thousands of beautiful LEDs. A part of the Zen Complex, it is one of four concepts that will eventually occupy the space – the other three being a co-working space, a coffee and cocktail bar, and an art gallery. The entire complex is slated to be finished in early 2018.

Be sure to check out the club’s official grand opening weekend November 3rd and 4th, for what promises to be another beautiful weekend of surprises featuring Nervo and MAKJ.

Temple Nightclub Denver Opening this Fall

San Francisco is home to one of the coolest nightclubs in the country: Temple. From the outside, it’s a rather unassuming place, but step inside and you’re transported to another dimension. The room gets its vibe from thousands of spherical lights protruding from the array of columns on the floor as well as the ceiling, making you feel like you’re in an actual space ship.

Now, Temple Nightclub will be arriving in Denver as part of the Zen Compound. The new compound will go live this fall in the old City Hall Event Venue at 1136 N. Broadway Street in Denver’s Capitol Hill and Golden Triangle Creative district. The nightclub will create a whole new nightlife experience, offering a 21 and over, fully immersive awe-inspiring lighting & visual experience, paired with world-class talent.

The new 20,000-square foot, three-story Zen Compound will open in stages with Temple Nightclub as the first concept to go live this fall. All three remaining concepts are expected to be up and running by the 2018 New Year.

“We see Denver as a sister city to San Francisco in many ways,” said San Francisco artist/DJ/entrepreneur Paul Hemming of his company’s expansion plan. “The Mile-High City is a major metropolitan hub and has an eclectic confluence of technology, music, art, entertainment and nightlife. It’s an exploding market with refined tastes, an entrepreneurial spirit and drive. Denver has a highly affluent market with appreciation for creativity and attention to detail.”

In Denver, construction is already underway and will bring 100 new jobs to residents; 80 of those positions are to be slotted for the nightclub. Hemming will lead design and oversee the architectural team and initial buildout, which calls for an aesthetic of “futuristic escapism” and theatrical elements while preserving key elements of the original structure. He’s also sole proprietor with a remarkable 20-year lease of the building.

Temple in SF brings hundreds of high quality DJs a year to its stage and we can expect the same from the upcoming Denver iteration.

“We found the perfect space and were able to assemble a great team and it all came together,” said Hemming.

So, stay tuned for more information about this new nightclub as it nears opening day and get excited, Colorado! This is going to be something special.
