We are so excited to announce that our patio is complete, decked out with a 10 foot wide garage surrounded by a wall of glass and decorated with large palms and Japanese trees. The best part is you can now stand on the patio, smoke and see the band performing! No more standing out on the the street where you can't have your drink in your hand at the same time. The goal was to make Herman's a more dynamic space while still holding true to it's "Dive Bar" roots and we believe we were successful. Construction was completed just in time to celebrate our 30th year in the business of showcasing Denver's BEST live music.
We had a great write up about it in the Westword and you can check it out here!

Herman's Hideaway debuting new patio this weekend
Herman's Hideaway, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and thirty years of live music this year, is debuting a new patio tonight at the Railbenders show. Mike Roth, the venue's co-owner, says they're still putting the finishing touches on the open-air patio, but it will be completely functional starting this weekend.
"We just wanted to build a place where people could go and have drinks," Roth says, "and have an alternative to just the main room. We're trying to make the place a little more dynamic, and get it open a little more. It's just unbelievable how much light comes in now and how much of an open space it is. It's all glass. Half of it's a glass garage door."
Roth says that removed the coat check and two booths that were being used as an overflow area for band equipment. There are also plans for a massive projection TV on the wall, as it's fourteen feet from ceiling to floor, and a fireplace.
