The historic Midwest Steel and Iron Works building next to Mile High Station will debut as Ironworks in October, 2018.

Stephanie Walter, director of sales and marketing for Mile High Station and Iron Works had much to say about this newly arranged venue. “I was interested in the idea of Ironworks for a while,” said Walter. “Denver is growing at a rapid pace, and smaller, more intimate events that meet all of a client’s needs are trending in this city, so this turned out to be a phenomenal idea!”

The launching of Ironworks was a worthwhile, but costly project.

“We want to bring an actual, historic building back to life,” continued Walter. “Many other companies in our industry default to tearing down buildings and rebuild, which is a cheaper way to go, but we decided to invest a lot more into revitalization…We wanted to take the time to get this venue right!”

This 6,900-square-foot landmark has been restored to create an event venue that combines 1900-era artistry with contemporary, Denver cachet.

The single-affair, split-level venue, has its original brick walls and hardwood floors, crystal chandeliers, ornamental features and other restored structures interspersed among urban chic design elements.

Floor to ceiling glass doors beckon guests outdoors onto a private patio overlooking Denver’s skyline.

Walter noted that Iron Works is a higher-end venue where as Mile High Station is larger and more industrial. Both can host weddings and boutiques. “Clients can now book the entire complex for corporate gatherings, outdoor events like concerts and fashion shows.”

Walter’s number one goal for Ironworks is to always exceed her client’s expectations.

“We now have the ability to work with our sister company, which gives our clients more options. The theme we really want to tap into is providing clients with an intimate experience at Ironworks, especially for weddings. We are not your typical ballroom-style-warehouse.”

Walter just started her thirteenth year in the event services industry and continues to enjoy hearing the raves, receiving thank yous and personal notes from past clients. “I have love my job because I watch my client’s vision turn into a special event.”

The 36-room Atticus Hotel in McMinnville, Oregon, opened for business this past spring. The hotel features an on-site restaurant and bar, private dining in the Atticus Hotel Drawing Room, a boardroom for meetings of up to 16 people, a business center and a fitness room. Additional amenities include Dutch-style bicycles, electric-car charging stations, rooms with fireplaces and original artwork from local artists.  

 

There is a lot of new happening around the state of Colorado. The number of recently introduced or upcoming venues for groups has definitely caught my attention. Here are just a few to consider.

 

On Feb. 23, Great Wolf Lodge Colorado Springs, part of North America’s largest family of indoor water park resorts, saluted its first anniversary with cake, balloons, pictures with Great Wolf Lodge’s signature characters, button making, a lemonade stand and more. With a conference center that features more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space spread out over eight configurable meeting rooms, as well as an adjoining patio, the property is an especially good option for groups with kids along for the outing.
