• Co-Working Spaces Just for Women

    FROM THE Fall 2019 ISSUE

    Charley Co. & RISE Collaborate Workspace, Denver

Earlier this year, we mentioned cool co-working spaces in Durango and Leadville. Now we have two more to share, both in Denver and focused on women.

RISE Collaborative Workspace has expanded beyond St. Louis by opening a new location in Denver on the corner of Colorado and 7th Avenue, in a space that exceeds 10,000 square feet and is located above Snooze Eatery and U.S. Bank. Denver RISE has 14 private offices, 10 dedicated desks, three conference rooms, one classroom, a social media room and more. RISE focuses on meeting the unique needs of businesswomen by engaging them with a community of members and providing collaboration opportunities and educational programming. Through its nonprofit arm RISE Society, high school girls can enroll in a mentorship program where they are matched with an adult member of RISE.

Charley Co. opened this summer inside The Source Hotel + Market Hall in RiNo and seeks members who are looking for more than just a place to sit. The goal is to build a community of driven women with the desire to grow alongside one another in their professional and personal lives. Charley Co. also has partnered with local companies to provide convenience like in-house salon services, dry cleaning, mailboxes to use as a business addresses, pop-up fitness classes, and a speakers series. Occupying the second level of the new hotel and market hall, Charley Co. spans 5,650 square feet and features six offices, four conference rooms, 1,000 square feet of open co-working space with desks, a break room, a mother’s nursing room, a library nook, and more.

Foster original ideas by booking Colorado’s artsy venues.


Chef Adam Vero joined Hearth & Dram in Denver as executive chef last year and recruited Jeff Hickman as his chef de cuisine. Both previously worked for TAG Restaurant Group, also located in Denver. The duo has created inventive new menus at Hearth & Dram and reimagined the “Whole Beast Feast,” a group dining event for 10-12 participants that is designed to showcase the eatery’s nose-to-tail philosophy. Five to seven courses are prepared on a sevenfoot, wood-fired grill and served family style to highlight the team’s culinary abilities and no-waste philosophy.


The 160th anniversary of the Colorado Gold Rush is underway. While settlers originally migrated west in hopes of striking gold, groups and leisure travelers today head to Colorado in fall to strike it rich with adventures. Here are two fun ideas for groups during this golden season.
