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.”

Here is just a snapshot of what’s new for activities, lodging, food and beverage around Colorado. The list from the Colorado Tourism Office was long and impressive, so we narrowed it down to some of the standouts for groups to check out. Also don’t forget longtime favorites that have withstood the test of time!

Attractions & Activities

 

Living in Crested Butte now for 14 years and traveling the state often, I can confirm without a doubt that there are many fun winter activities to enjoy in Colorado ski towns that don’t involve skiing. While I strongly encourage you to offer downhill skiing and snowboarding as an activity option when planning meetings, events and incentive trips in winter, I’ll utilize Snowmass (just over the mountains from me about 20 miles as a crow flies but not as a car drives) as an example of the huge range of non-skiing options.
