Our acoustically designed room in the heart of Denver plays host to live jazz nightly (Wednesday through Sunday). Check the calendar below for set times as they may vary. Nocturne’s distinctive Artist in Residency programming is at the core of our line up. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in a four- to eight-week run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a jazz genre, or the exhibition of an Artist's own original work. This old-school approach to programming combines the unique opportunity to hone one’s craft with regular stage time, while also establishing an elevated rapport with Denver music fans. Nocturne is proud to be the only venue in Colorado that features jazz exclusively, and we are also pleased to feature national touring artists on special occasions.


Reservations are strongly recommended for either music set. By reserving your seat for dinner and a show you can enjoy the live music along with a three course menu by our talented culinary team. You can make a reservation on-line or via phone @ 303.295.3333.

Supporting the musicians practicing their craft on our stage is important to us - your prepaid dinner reservation includes the artist fees that support fair pay to our music community. You can support in other ways such as purchasing music online, physical CD's or sending Venmo tips to your favorite artists. The music community is strong but still working to rebound from a lot of cancelled gigs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support of their craft will keep this art form alive.

Adam Bodine - Original Works

Thursday nights in July, Nocturne welcomes back to the stage the talented and always entertaining Adam Bodine. Thursday nights in July, the genre-fusing jazz keyboardist and composer leads a world class lineup of musicians including Joseph Lukasik on woodwinds, Gonzalo Teppa on bass and Dru Heller on drums.

Weaving through an eclectic array of Adam’s dynamic original compositions, each set of music performed by this flexible foursome is a unique and exciting adventure that tickles the imagination. Embracing a wide spectrum of styles and moods, Bodine’s tunes creatively blend flavors from a variety of traditional and modern jazz worlds to produce a fresh, fun and compelling sound. Check out Adam’s most recent and acclaimed album Opus Reminiscence.


An $8 per guest Artist Fee applies to this show. Reservations are recommended!

Kurt Cobain Birthday Show: Adam Bodine Trio plays Nirvana

In addition to Adam Bodine’s eclectic catalog of original instrumental material, the genre-fusing pianist and composer is highly regarded for his jazz trio’s fun and creative interpretations of decade-spanning cover tunes. Sometimes Bodine’s trio treats the audience to a unique performance that studies and honors a musical icon. For this special night Adam and company honor the eternal Kurt Cobain and the music of Nirvana through the lens of the jazz trio format.
