The best hip-hop night clubs are not just about having a great DJ who could spin the beats out of our shoes. It is also about the place itself; the vibe it is giving off through its design and décor. And while it is about dancing, it is also about what the club offers to guests off the dance floor. With that in mind, here’s a list of some of the best hip-hop night clubs in Denver.
Cold Crush takes inspiration from the Cold Crush Bothers, a 70-80’s hiphop group from New York City. The club is a magnet for different artists like poets, musicians, and other performers who come and mingle with other people who appreciate their art. DJs spin soul, funk, and hip-hop but there are nights when the club deviates to other genre like rock and reggae. 2700 Larimer St. Denver, CO 303.292.1906
If you are up for a little more swanky location, then the Epernay Lounge should be your direction. It is all about that light atmosphere and champagne-heavy drink list. This sushi bar and restaurant doubles up as one of the go-to places for people who doesn’t mind to spend a bit of cash. The drinks and cocktails are the bomb, the music blaring, and the people are beautiful. What else can you ask for? 1080 14th St. Denver, CO 303. 573.5000
The first thing you will notice is the art deco theme of the place, which will remind you of its speakeasy origins. While its focus now shifted to hip-hop and dance, the speakeasy character of the place is still there. Going back to the present, this joint has become a go-to club in the south of Colfax. Aside from featuring high-profile DJs, this joint also occasionally invites live hip-hop acts to perform on stage. 1037 Broadway Denver, CO 303.832.8628
Keep it simple and don’t complicate things. If you want a no frills bar that offers good drinks, good food, and good music, then Over There off Hampden is the club for you. It is a simple bar that features both live and club music while keeping the friendly vibe going. 3425 S. Oleander Ct. Denver, CO 303.759.3155
The elegant red walls are really striking especially with the dim lighting. Aside from the wall colors, the glass tile bar face and the chandelier really stands out. Most of the design is from the former Dive, which was renamed again as Tyrst after a not so successful stint. But it looks like the club has found its niche as a go-to club for hip-hop club goers looking for a much more intimate environment that has a bit of swank. 1322 15th Street Denver, CO 303.629.0544
A sister club of Tyrst. While Tryst is about elegance and intimacy, the Drink is about chilling and relaxing. The environment is much lighter and the staff is really friendly. You can choose to kick back and enjoy some cocktails or hit the dance floor and start socializing. 1320 15th Street Denver, CO 720.620.4376
The Heartbeat of Market Street On the corner of 15th and Market is where you will find Chloe, a jet-setting New York fashionista, who has planted her roots in Downtown Denver to share her experiences from all around the world. The culmination of her travels has manifested into three distinct spaces in one venue. These include the Mezze Lounge, Garden, and Discotheque. 1445 Market St, Denver, CO 80202 | (720) 383-8447
