If you try to light a cigarette inside Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom, security guards will be on top of you within seconds. Yet if you pull out your three-foot bong, even on the fringes of the crowd, the same guards look the other way.
Cervante’s used to be so full of cigarette smoke that you couldn’t spend any length of time there without coming out smelling like an ashtray. Now the place smells a lot better. And if you’ve ever been to a show there, you know what I’m talking about.
And if you forget to pre-roll a blunt before you go in, just visit the venue’s balcony—it’s a vibrant marketplace for goods you probably won’t find anywhere else in Denver but Civic Center Park and East Colfax Avenue. From there the only thing standing between you and your bleezy may be finding a wrap.
What makes Cervante’s unique is that as far as drug enforcement goes, it’s Amsterdam. Unlike some other larger venues in Denver, you don’t even have to try to hide it. You can walk in with a bleezy behind your ear and the only person giving you a hard time would be the stranger next to you trying to get in on your smoke session.
Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom is the perfect venue for herb enthusiasts to congregate, and the venue hosts performances that cater to the demographic. But if you want to puff on your Marlboros, you’d better do it outside.
