Located just south of Denver, the community of Greenwood Village added Pindustry, the first redevelopment in the new Arapahoe Entertainment District this summer. Featuring nearly 55,000 square foot of space spread across two floors, Pindustry is an entertainment-focused restaurant, bar and events venue that offers experiential options for events large and small. Highlights include two kinds of bowling (duckpin and traditional), a huge variety of other games, a downstairs beer garden with a custom stage, and a large upstairs rooftop patio that holds 1,000. 

Located at Arapahoe and Syracuse, in the heart of southeast Denver’s tech corridor, the total capacity is 2,300 guests. The food and beverage program features a menu of Italian-inspired shareable dishes alongside house-made craft cocktails and an extensive wine and beer list. Menu items include charcuterie and cheese boards, salads, ciabatta sandwiches, a variety of pane rustico toasts, and wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas. 

Pindustry’s Sky Deck is one of the largest rooftop patios in Denver with 16,000 square feet of partially covered space and features a lengthy bar made from shipping containers, a cornhole arena with stadium-style seating, and big views. Elsewhere in the venue, pinball machines, classic arcade games, skeeball, billiards, Ping-Pong and foosball round out the wide range of fun.

As COVID-19 hit, key projects at some of Colorado’s major meetings and events properties were just wrapping up and getting ready to debut. Construction of Bartolin Hall, The Broadmoor’s new exhibition space, was completed in March 2020 in time to welcome the annual Space Symposium, which has the largest economic impact of any single event in the community of Colorado Springs.

 

Colorado distilleries like their brethren in the state’s vibrant craft brewery industry offer many terrific places for groups to sip, sample and gather. It’s hard to beat the local vibe, neat spaces and flexible food options. 

Dry Land Distillers is one of the newest options, recently opening a tasting room and cocktail lounge inside its new distillery at 519 Main St. in Longmont. Kelly Dressman is serving as events manager.
