New nightclub tries basement quarters

John Colson

The basement space at 517 E. Hopkins Ave. – most recently the site of Rusty’s Crab Shack – is about to become the home of Aspen’s newest nightclub – The Living Room at Aspen.

The Living Room was granted a tavern liquor license by the city of Aspen on Tuesday, and is expected to open in early December featuring live music, a limited menu and dancing.

The management of the new bar, Kurt Ahlman, 34, and Joseph DeCristofaro, 34, are both from the New York City area, although Ahlman is presently living in Woody Creek..

Peak Entertainment Group has a 10-year lease on the space, according to information contained in the liquor license application packet.
