Enjoyed a highly entertaining piano battle between two incredible German pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis in this beautiful, historic building. Nice restaurants are within short walking distance. See reviews for Zocalito Latin Bistro.

We saw John McEuen and it was a great show. It was my first time there and I loved the atmosphere, the seating, everything!

Ten Tenors was an amazing show. All seats are great as small venue. Beer and Wine beforehand but not much in way of snacks. Just chips or candy. Cookies would be a great addition.

This old hall was built when the town was beginning. Too bad today's instant electronic media has subverted the use of this old theatre, with lobby newly recently renovated. It seems that Aspen is degenerated into only a music town with theatre productions clearly secondary....More
