Colorado Springs offers an array of side-trip-worthy music venues. The 2,000-seat Pikes Peak Center regularly welcomes philharmonic orchestras from around the world, as well as touring Broadway musicals and other performers. The extremely popular Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse and Pub is a blast for traditional Celtic seisiúns and sing-alongs, held weekly. On the less rowdy side, jazz aficionados will thrill to discover Motif, an intimate hideaway of a jazz club housed in a converted garage, as well as Deco Lounge in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, where live combos perform for wine-sipping habitués on Friday nights. Also, The Broadmoor’s Penrose Room features a dance floor for swaying to the stylings of the house trio amid gorgeous views.
Rockers, however, might be happiest heading down to Denver, where legendary theaters such as the Ogden, the Bluebird and the Gothic tend to offer the best in show when it comes to buzz bands.
