Physic Opera (L): An old timey way to say "medicine show". HISTORY
Syntax: Physic Opera is the physical manifestation of the Denver Syntax (www.denversyntax.com), our 10 year-old music, art and literary review. The publication has endured, showcasing hundreds upon hundreds of Colorado creatives.
Through multitudes of events (i.e., The Living Room Series and A Moveable Feast, in particular) as well as talent buying duties at Meadowlark during its golden days, Syntax has successfully created a forum for local artists and musicians. To advocate for them. To watch them grow. And no, this isn't a hippie commune, it's the ethos that we culled from years of working with artists - seeing the good in them and hearing what it is that they need from a venue, from a talent buyer, the sound guy and what their long term goals are for their art.
The Physic Opera is a place for BLUE COLLAR CREATIVES. We want the working artist and musician to post-up, to sit back. Drink off our tap, eat from our pots. We will have daily specials for the working artisan: to provide a respite from their day or a sandwich to-go back with them to the studio or the den. Sit in a dark corner, or seek dialogues with other players, painters and writers.
Our food menu, created by Chef David Beckwith, is a blend of 19th century Denver fare - updated. Small plates, to share with friends. Clean. Straightforward. We want a full head and heart, not a
