El Chapultepec, at first glance, is just another aging dive bar serving up traditional Mexican tastes on paper plates in downtown. But even though the great green chili draws plenty of patrons, it is the jazz performances that hold prominence in this place. Local as well as some national legends crowd into the small dining room filled with old vinyl booths and play just about every night of the year. Since the LoDo revitalization, this has become a trendy nightspot, so expect a big crowd.
So I asked the staff at Starbucks if there was live jazz within walking distance. 2 of the 3 staffers responded "El Chapultepec." I owe them a big tip: This was some of the best quartet/quintet jazz I've ever heard live.
Real jazz, played well, I've paid $20 to hear music like this. But there was no cover! There were even some members of the Mingus Big Band, and a couple of young turks that sat in. Silver, Gillespie, Davis, and other standards were done well. It's been a long time since I've "closed the club" but staying late at El Chapultepec was effortless.
