  • COVID Policy Per Pitkin County Public Health

    BELLY UP ASPEN IS OPEN AT 100% CAPACITY WITH NO MASK OR SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS

    In an effort to maintain a safe & comfortable environment for our guests, at least 80% of attendees must be fully vaccinated, the remaining 20% or less can take a COVID test within 72-hours of the show.

    To achieve the required 80% vaccination/20% negative test ratio, shows will have “vaccination” and “negative test” ticket types. Attendees must buy the ticket type that corresponds with what their status will be on the date of the show.

Orders exceeding these limits, or any tickets purchased for resale, may have a portion or all of their orders cancelled without notice. Limits for each show are listed on the show purchase page.

  • What is seating like at the Belly Up Aspen?

    We are a general admission venue with an 80-person seated reserved section. When a show is GA only the entire room is first-come, first-served. Most of our shows have a GA ticket and a RESERVED ticket (which guarantees you a seat in the RES section). The reserved section consists of 11 tables (seating 4-6 people at each table) and railing seats on the second tier of the venue above the dance floor. There is also limited fixed seating that is available on a first-come, first-serve basis in GA. Please do not save seats in our General Admission section – make sure your entire party is present before finding a place to sit in GA. 

  • Can I reserve a table?

    FOR SHOWS WITH A RESERVED TICKET – purchasing a reserved ticket guarantees you a seat in our reserved section but does not guarantee you a table. Email ticketing@bellyupaspen.com for specific seating requests.  Upper tables are sold for select shows on a request basis via our website.  *****include link to web form for requests***
