COMING SOON 2019
Our mission is simple: let the music lead. Through a thoughtfully crafted space, an authentic and inspired musical experience can captivate your soul, an audience… even a community. The Orion and the Side Door will bring performances to Colorado Springs that will enhance, elevate and add to the increasing vibrant community of live arts and culture. After a complete renovation of the old Blue Star Restaurant at 1645 S Tejon St in the Ivywild neighborhood, we will be bringing big-time music to Colorado Springs!
In partnership with Echo Architecture, the front of the building at 1645 S Tejon Street will receive a full face lift to wipe away the old and launch into the new era. Adding a classic style marque to the building, designed by Fixer Creative, will enhance the newly renovated building.
THE SIDE DOOR
The smaller and more intimate music venue, will be a beacon for musicians and the local art community. Open seven days a week with a full bar and limited menu, The Side Door will provide a desirable spot before and after a show or just a great space to hang with friends. This neighborhood style bar will be a central hot spot for the Ivywild Neighborhood. Enjoy the music of up and coming artists on the small stage a minimum 4 nights a week or rock out to your favorite tunes from a classic jukebox.
LET’S DO THE SHOW RIGHT
The Orion will be a live music venue offering an electric atmosphere with a generous stage, world class sound system and a full-service bar in a large room. We aim to put music at the forefront of all we do with a focus on ensuring artists are generously treated with respect and authentic hospitality, allowing artists to flourish. We believe that music, when approached from this vantage point, has a transformative effect on people.
The Orion will provide a place where both nationally touring artists and emerging musicians can share their craft with an appreciative audience in an atmosphere that draws music fans from across the Pikes Peak region. Directly connected to The Orion will be The Side Door, a more intimate experience for artists and music enthusiasts, fans, and supporters to connect most nights with traveling bands and musicians, plus enjoy a full bar and kitchen open seven nights a week.
