Paramount Theatre is a 1,700 capacity venue located in Denver, Colorado.  Opening in the 1930’s, the venue offers a touch of culture.  The neon marquee and red satin curtains give the venue a classic feel.  However, comedians, artists, touring acts and other productions keep the venue relevant.


Gothic Theatre, located in Englewood, Colorado, offers an open floor and tiered balcony that offers great views from every location.  It was recently taken over by AEG Live, securing some of the most popular shows to come into town.


Red Rocks Amphitheatre is located in Morrison, CO and is one of the most well-known destination concert venues.  Is it a destination that people make for hiking, eating, recreational activities such as yoga, and live music entertainment.


The Black Sheep is a small, standing room only live music venue located in Colorado Springs, CO.  The 450 capacity room provides extremely intimate settings for shows.


The Fillmore Auditorium is located in Denver, CO and opened up in 1907.  Because the venue has been here so long, it has hosted a variety of historic acts and has essentially become a destination venue.  It is owned by Live Nation, which means it may lack personal values and a strong connection with the community.


Target Market

We welcome people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds.  However, with the edgy vibe and alternative pop rock bands that will often make an appearance, the venue targets adults between the ages of 21 – 33 who are heavily interested in live music.  More specifically, we target to the young community within and surrounding the city of Denver; the local art and beer options will be a main selling point for attracting locals.  Although a variety of artists will be performing here, the venue caters to the alternative/pop rock scene.  Nevertheless, the venue welcomes all music lovers and musicians of all genres.



There will be several different aspects of management throughout the venue.  As the owner, I will serve as the general manager of the venue and oversee all areas of the business.  I have a background in booking and running shows, as well as event management so I will be able to help my team grow and develop their skills along the way.  There will be five (8) different areas within the office that work closely together:

The Local is a 20,000 square foot venue that provides a large amount of room for general admission.  The box office and guest services will be located at the entrance of the venue for easy accessibility.  The hours of the guest services office will be Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 6:00pm.  The box office will have the same hours except on event days – the box office will be open until 9:00pm on event days.  The venue is not open to the public on non-event days or before a show.  The time of open-doors for events varies with each performance.  The time will be decided between the venue and the artist.

The venue contains a small bar that offers beer and a small selection of mixed drink options.  There will be no food available within the venue in order to try and maintain cleanliness within the building.  The stage is located at the back of the house and is fixed – no outside stages will be welcome.  The venue has hardwood floors and satin red curtains hanging around the stage.  There will be at least 20 bathroom stalls available for the public.

  • Fixed house stage (12ft x 20ft)
  • Two (2) stage amps

Stage of Development

The Local is a start up business, which plans to be in business by Jun 2018.  As of right now, I am in the planning process for this company.  I have outlined my business plan and will continue to develop it.  The business plan will be presented to community locals and contractors.  If the community approves, I hope to have the venue in construction by Fall 2017 and finished by June 2018.  This will be an excellent time to open up the business because artists touring schedules are usually in full effect from June – December.
