Locally legendary dive
Why locals love it
Many of the area's greatest bands started at this intimate, sticky-floored bar. Though some of these groups now pack venues many times the size, they reguarly return to play here. Maybe their loyalty is on account of the endearing grime of the place, or maybe because the club promotes local gigs with the same passion as they do national ones.
Why you should visit it
A night at the Hi-dive will shoot you straight to the heart of Denver's hipster music scene, and who knows, maybe you'll witness the beginning of the next big thing. Shows are always cheap (often under $20) and drinks are a similar bargain.
If you like what you hear, ask around about who to come see next. Chances are you'll never have heard of the bands some people are most excited about.
