The Church

When researching Denver, I wanted to find a unique club to go to. The Church nightclub seemed to fit the bill since it is a club inside a decommissioned church. I know there was a similar one in New York but I never got to go.

Inside the church there is gothic architecture and stained glass windows combined with several bars, three dance areas, a couple of lounges and even a sushi bar. We sat in the Vip area for a few minutes snapped a few pictures and walked off. There is a coolness factor in ordering a drink and dancing the night away in a former church. The drinks themselves vary the bartender made mine well however, my friend said hers were watered down

The club attracts crowds of goths, mods and club kids depending on the room and night. Sound bounces off the stone walls and cavernous high-arched ceilings creating some less-than-stellar acoustics. The club features techno music and hip-hop. Upstairs there were club kids with glow sticks and those glow gloves and later that night there were dancers on stage. The downstairs/basement is a bit crowded and gets pretty hot and it where hip-hop is played. In another area downstairs, they played music I would listen to. I didn’t know they were danceable until I saw the weird dancing going on downstairs. They played She Wants Revenge, Placebo and Jem. After a few drinks, we joined in the mayhem. We missed the rooftop since we couldn’t find out how to get to it. It would have been nice to get a breath of fresh air after all the heat.
