Organ Stop Pizza

Inside this building is a huge dining area with a beautiful Wurlitzer organ. The organ rises from the center of the stage and is played by one of four specially trained organists. The surrounding area is filled with accompanying instruments and the billows for the organ are behind glass for all to see. A light show also accompanies the music. Also, the pizza is totally awesome.

Organ Stop Pizza

Why settle for regular pizza when you can chow down while serenaded by a complicated musical instrument? The fine folks at Organ Stop Pizza acquired a Wurlitzer theatre organ originally installed in a Denver theatre in 1927, and built a pizza joint around it. The organ has over 5,500 pipes, and also features a wide range of percussion instruments, including a grand and upright pianos, tuned bird whistles, a train whistle, and castanets. It also has the ugliest cat puppets I have ever seen. The organist will take requests and puts on a good show, but it is tough to converse with all of the music. The pizza is adequate, but the show is a lot of fun. If you want to enjoy the experience at home, they have a gift shop that includes CDs of their featured organists.
