Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom
Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom is located at 2637 Welton Street in the old Casino Caberet whose history dates back to the Cotton Club days of the 1930s when jazz greats such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Benny Goodman took the stage when they toured through Denver. Over the years the Casino Caberet has hosted such acts as James Brown, BB King, Ray Charles, Ike & Tina Turner, and countless others. Cervantes has continued the musical legacy of the building and neighborhood ever since the grand opening in January 2003. The sister venues, which have collectively served the music community for seven years, have played host to over 3,000 live shows including intimate performances with Chris Robinson (Black Crowes), Derek Trucks, Dr. John, Sam Bush, Page McConnell of Phish, Branford Marsalis, and Warren Haynes to name a few.
Cervantes has two rooms that offer live music simultaneously, Cervantes and The Other Side. Each room operates independently of the other but they are connected giving our patrons the ability to venture back and forth between each room. Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom seperates itself from other Denver live music venues for a multitude of reasons, but the dual venue feature makes Cervantes stand out the most.
Cervantes holds 900 people and includes a balcony that wraps around the entire room creating a very intimate setting. Cervantes incorporates a top of the line sound system, including a Meyer MICA Line Array with four boxes per side and six Meyer 650P subs. This arrangement translates into full sound that can be heard throughout the venue from front to back. The Other Side holds 500 people and has equally impressive traits.
