First review
Central City Opera House Central City is a quaint town located less than an hour from Denver in the Rocky Mountains. Central City was originally a mining community, but has turned into more of a gaming community since gambling was passed in a handful of mountain towns in Colorado in 1991. The highlight of Central City is the Central City Opera House that was built in 1878 by Welsh and Cornish Miners. The Opera House is a National Historic Landmark that attracts both visitors and natives alike. The Opera House seats 550 guests for each performance.

The Central City Opera House hosts year round events, while visitors flock to the Summer Music Festival that includes a variety of musical performances. The summer of 2012 schedule includes Oklahoma! La Boheme, The Turn of the Screw and The Medium. The Opera House is also advertising Jazz Brunches, lunch shows and a variety of other family- friendly events.

There are limited options for lodging in Central City and the neighboring gaming community, Blackhawk. The hotels are mostly casino hotels, as most of the historic hotels have not been able to keep up with the demands of a gaming community. Restaurants are also primarily limited to casinos. We were able to find one restaurant, Rogue- A Modern American Chophouse, that was not connected to a casino and was located close to the Opera House. Rouge is only open during Opera season and offers a historic fine dining option consistent with the quality and service of Kevin Taylor’s other two restaurants in downtown Denver.
