Just moved to Parker 5 days ago for new job. My wife's birthday is Friday and we are celebrating that/new job. I am looking for a restaurant w/ live music (jazz perhaps) near Parker, CO & Denver. I don't know the area well but would like to surprise my wife with a nice place and accessible parking. $80-120 budget. (Gluten free menu a plus for me...). I will also settle for a nice restaurant w/o music if you would like add those as we hope to live here a lonnnnnnnng time. Thanks, everyone.

You want to go to Dazzle.

Another time, for a decidedly grittier scene, try the famous El Chapultepec in LoDo.

Decent place I tried with some friends Watercourse foods. They won't have live music, but Filmore and Ogden are near and not too far from downtown Denver.

thirding Dazzle. There are tons of other restaurants to check out. I'll list some that I like but also check out the other Denver threads in AskMe:

Senor Pepe's: Mexican, east Colfax

Ethiopian Restaurant: yes, that is what it is called, east Colfax
Queen of Sheba: also Ethiopian, east Colfax

Thai Street Food, only open Saturdays, awesome. In Aurora
Thai Pot Cafe, Colorado Boulevard near Florida

Enzo's: pizza, east colfax

Watercourse (mentioned above) and City o' City: vegetarian sister restaurants, uptown and capital hill respectively, they could certainly help with gluten-free dining

a number of Pho places on Havana, Aurora, I think. Up by I-70

Rioja: fancy Mediterranean, Larimer Square
The Market: coffee, pastries, sandwiches, kind of everything, counter-style, in Larimer Square. great place to sit with a newspaper.

(I love eating out in Denver- and giving suggestions. MeMail me if you have any specific food types/genres/things you are looking for. Also, and I know people hate it for some reason, but I've had good luck with Yelp) happy eating!

oh, and if you like jazz, you should listen to KUVO ...89 point something
