The hi-dive, which opened in 2003, has become a Denver institution. Many current top-shelf local bands got their start at this intimate South Broadway bar, which sits smack-dab in the middle of the historic Baker neighborhood. Numerous touring bands have gone on to receive wide audiences along with national and international acclaim after gracing hi-dive’s modest stage. And even though a great deal of those groups can now easily fill places far larger, they still make it down to the hi-dive to perform regularly. Perhaps it’s because the sound is fantastic and because the club promotes local shows with the same vigor and enthusiasm as they would a national one.
