It is also known, in some circles, as the place to get a ride in The Ultimate Taxi. It's a taxi cab you'll notice if it's around, because of the noise and lights that announce its presence.
"Ladies and gentlemen, you are aboard The Ultimate Taxi in Aspen Colorado," Jon Barnes, the owner and the driver, announces to passengers. "[It's] the only recording studio, theater, night club, planetarium, toy store, internet-connected taxi cab in the world."
Barnes bought the cab in 1983 and has made a show of it for almost 20 years.
"Most taxis, most cars for that matter, don't have drum machines or pianos or electronic wind instruments, laptop computers that are wired into the web and streaming live video to the Internet," Barnes said. "We have disco lighting, we have green lasers on the ceiling there and red lasers as well. We have color changing stage lights."
Barnes is the driver, the entertainer, the class clown.
Sometimes, though, his act breaks down.
"One time there was smoke coming out of the keyboards," Barnes said. "They thought it was part of the show. I said 'no, no, no, 911. Get out of the car.'"
Sometimes the actor himself loses it. Sometimes the self-taught musician forgets the notes he's supposed to play. But with so much going on, his passengers don't seem to mind.
"It's kind of all hard to explain," Emily and Rich Semeone told us. "There is nothing like this experience. We've had probably 6 or 8 people in here just hanging around, driving around, just a party. It's fun."
"It's just kind of like everything you'd want to see at a Pink Floyd Concert, kind of miniaturized to a small audience," Barnes described.
Of all the stunts Barnes pulls while driving, there's one thing he never does.
"I don't use a cell phone and I don't text at all," he said.
Barnes' ultimate taxi ride has been the ultimate in distracted driving.
"You have to be on the first name basis with the Police Chief and have an insurance company that's never actually taken a ride in the back seat," Barnes said.
He doesn't get rich off of this.
"I was just trying to have fun at work and blur the distinction between work and play," he said.
Even at $175 dollars per ride, for 45 minutes, it's still not wildly profitable.
"Some night you make money, some nights I have memories I can never forget," he said.
Barnes mostly does private parties. If you're interested, you can check out his site at http://www.ultimatetaxi.com/
