Q. Will I feel comfortable being at Nissi's?
A. This is where we shine. We are not a loud college bar, a standing-only club, or a hotel lobby. Nissi's was designed to serve people who want to enjoy music and entertainment in a relaxing, yet vibrant supper club environment. Everyone gets a great seat, and can take a whirl on our dance floor.
Q. How much does Nissi's charge for their live entertainment?
Cover charges average only about the price of a movie. Order online in advance and save a couple of dollars per ticket. There is always a cover charge for the main act, which plays on stage from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30–10:00 p.m. Seating is usually set in advance to ensure every ticket buyer gets a seat. When you order your tickets, mention you will be dining with us and we'll do our best to get you priority seating.
Q. Can I buy tickets at the door or by phone?
A. Yes, Tuesday – Sunday after 4pm. You can also call for seating availability the day of the show after 4 p.m. at 303-665-2757. We do not take reservations, and will only hold a ticket holder's seats until 30 minutes after showtime. Plan in advance and save money by buying online. Tickets are non-refundable.
Q. Do you serve food?
Do we ever! Nissi's is known for its award-winning, chef-prepared small plates cuisine or “tapas,” which is smaller portions of tasty food, at smaller prices. We also serve special entrees. Happy Hour starts at 4:30 p.m. and dinner is served throughout the evening. Please support Nissi's by having dinner with us.
Q. Can I eat dinner before and during an evening performance?
Yes. In fact, our menu was designed with that in mind. You can order throughout the evening.
Q. What if I am having dinner and don't want to watch the show?
You can always dine in our front room café or adjacent restaurant from 4:30 p.m. throughout the evening, without tickets for a show.
Q. Can we brings kids to Nissi's?
A. Use good judgment. This is an adult venue. Please do not bring children under age 18 unless we have a student concert or midweek jazz concert, as many people come to Nissi's to enjoy a date night, or to spend a night away from the kids. Please be considerate of others.
