Waycott Opera House

-A A +A
1901. 2432 W. Colorado Ave. (northeast corner of 25th St.)

The opera house, which once contained a large theater, may have been designed by Ernest and R. H. Waycott, the contractors and proprietors. Clever murals that mimic the third-story fenestration mask removal of the original second-story bay windows. The first level is now a multiroom maze filled with antiques and architectural souvenirs in what has become a bar and restaurant.
