Loved this place. The drinks were great and the music fantastic. Can't wait to go back.
Great venue packed house best stage/sound/lighting in the springs. Loved playing there.. Great place to see live bands not a bar setting a real venue!!
Tickets are $12 advance and $15 at the door. Advance purchase at http://flutedaddy.com or call 433-5555
Service is horrible!!!
The staff is inattentive and dismissive. It's painfully obvious they they are easily overcome by events. The bartender is overly concerned with catering to female patrons rather than his actual job. The acoustics in the place are terrible and it's a shame because the bands are great. The music is almost drowned out by people chatting away. Most of this is attributed to the fact that the place is in the garage of the owners other business which the staff freely admits, like its a good thing. The food is way overrated and over priced as well as the drinks. The entire place has an air of extreme pretentiousness as the staff is overly concerned with local elites (some Army General's wife) that frequent the place while in turn neglecting other customers. I recommend with conditions namely eat before you go, don't expect prompt service and sit outside as the indoor acoustics are almost unbearable.
Sunshine studios may have a good recording area, but the place isn't ideal for live shows. I wouldn't recommend that bands attempt to play there.
1) it's off the beaten path, no one comes out to the shows.
2) they charged us to play, no other venue does that
3) the sound system is weak and not loud, mixed down bad
4) we got a hum during our set, they couldn't figure it out for half the song.
5) bought their DVD which had horrible sound quality.
I wouldn't recommend that bands play at this venue. This review is
for their live shows, i'm not sure about their recording abilities. Considering
the DVD's quality though, it may not be all that great.
Initially, you will feel welcome and comfortable. But, buyer BEWARE!!! The owner will strong-arm you into signing undeciferable contracts, high-jack your recordings if you decide to record in his "In-House" recording studio known as "Cottage", and threaten you constantly with his larger than life stature and will never let you forget he is ex-military and he has an "Italian" last name. The Green Room, friends, is NOT a place for musicians. It is a place for the Owner to gain monetary benefits for himself. If any one has a question of his business practices, just look into his old "Green Room", where he is currently in litigation for the last real estate debacle. Use extreme caution!!!
This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've had.....rich and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.
Just what he Springs needs- a great venue with awesome jazz musicians. I agree that the noise level was ridiculous. Hopefully the jazz enthusiasts will prevail. I see lots of potential here.
Loved the food - truffle coated french fries, tempura fried bacon, tasty shrimps all with nice dipping sauces. The music was outstanding and the place was comfortable with an elegant, upscale vibe. Only complaint was the noise level in the room - lots of hard reflective surfaces and chatty youngsters.
I have given a few drum clinics at the Green Room Music Complex and they were a great success. Thanks to Craig, the owner, for his help in preparation, professionalism, and enthusiasm toward my events. The "Living Room" venue was perfect for drum clinics and the sound was amazing in the room.

I'm very excited about this new venue and hope it thrives and prospers in our community. I'm hoping once the social bar flys are gone--these are the people who are currently crowding the place to just talk all over the music and treat it as background noise like they do at every other bar in town--then there will be room for real Jazz lovers to come out and appreciate great music and great musicians.
Service is LACKING to say the least!! Took over an hour to get drinks after we ordered them. Well over an hour to get the appitizers that were just OK!!! Dont think I could recommend MOTIF to friends and family!!
this is place is really cool it is small but the sound is amazing and the environment is all about the music a definate must visit...the venue focuses on only having 2 acts each night but the quality of enetertainment is top notch...no alcohol is served kleeping a true under age place at the front of its priorities...
The service and the music is great. The pool table is a great addition along with the beer pong table. But check out the bartender/owner Mike. Talk about hot! Look out girls here he comes!
Here is a savory taste of the open blues jam on 31 Jan 10....
What a night!
Check this out! The HARDWAY rocks MST on Black Friday 09! Sugar Pop!
Great service, next up and coming neighborhood bar! The bartender, Joel, is awesome (and hot) and makes excellent drinks at a wallet-friendly value. Great new venue for any kind of the local or out-of-town music scene. I will definitely go back on a regular basis.
Wow, wow, wow. I won passes to the Minus the Bear show at the Black Sheep from the csindy and I am still in awe. The three bands were all very good. As Tall As Lions and Minus The Bear were outstanding. The staff are very concientious and controlled the audience with skill, not as easy a task as some people might assume. The audience, on the whole were very polite but pretty stiff - saw some swaying but no dancing which is a shame because each group performed extreemly danceable music.
Overall I give the evening five stars.
Great mix, all around. All kinds of music and events- there is something for everyone here. The regulars are like family! I truly love my job!
Excellent choice! I have attended several conferences at the Crowne Plaza this past year. I have been impressed with the ambience, service, detailed attention of staff. Location is good. Better choice than the Doubletree.
