Westword's Description

The D Note celebrated its tenth anniversary and a change of ownership in 2012, but this live-music venue and full-service restaurant and bar in Olde Town Arvada is still a favorite local hangout and a tourist attraction for out-of-town visitors. Originally envisioned as a performance space/art gallery, it was expanded to include hot eats and became a hub for local musicians and music enthusiasts. The menu items have some famous names, like the Sinatra salad, the Zappa sandwich and the Penny Lane pasta, and since live-music patrons get hungry too, D Note’s signature pizzas are another edible tribute, with names like Me & Bobby McGee, The Pizza Formerly Known as Prince, and Particle Man. The Hall and Oats dessert plate would make a nice ending to any meal, accompanied by some fine tunes in the D Note's laid-back atmosphere.

Merchant's Description

"Our story begins in medias res, with a game of disc golf. Matthew and Adam had just finished playing a game and decided to grab an iced mocha at La Dolce Vita, a café they had spotted in the neighborhood. After the mocha they decided to explore the the quaint Historic Olde Town of Arvada in which the café was located. Adam, on the lookout for a banjo, stopped in The Olde Town Pickin Parlour and inquired. After getting a super deal on a Deering banjo, Adam and Matthew noticed a vacant building next door. Adam pointed out to Matthew that it would be a perfect location for a venue. Both brothers, along with their youngest brother, Jeremy, had long dreamed of owning a business together. Adam wanted an art gallery and performance venue, Matthew wanted to create a playground for adults, and Jeremy wanted a bar and live music venue. Once the location in Olde Town Arvada was noticed, it haunted Matthew for months. It seemed like the perfect place to bring all of the dreams together. There seemed to be magic in the location and somehow it just clicked. Finally Matthew and his wife, Monica, decided to inquire. With Monica's business sense along with support and investment from other family members, the DeGraffs were able to make the dream a reality."

    Always some great music going at the D-Note, no matter what style you like, especially if it's jazz.
