The venue’s outdoor urban setting features custom hedge walls and can hold up to 140 guests. It offers a variety of amenities such as an indoor foyer and private restrooms.

“We are thrilled to be offering this distinct new event space in the heart of Cherry Creek North,” says JoAnn Wrenn, general manager. “THE Deck is the ideal setting for a gorgeous ceremony or intimate cocktail party.”

JW Marriott Denver offers a total of 9,500-square-feet of event space. This includes  Fireside, their 2,400-square-foot space with glass doors that lead out to a patio with fire pits, and the Grand Ballroom, which can hold up to 175 guests.

Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976.

 

The National Association of Catering & Events gathered on Sept. 11 at the Denver Botanic Gardens to commemorate the NACE’s 10th anniversary and provide a glimpse into the future. A panel of several founding members—Monica Cheeks of Hyatt Hotels, Cal Cheney of All Digital Photo & Video, Amanda Michalek of AORN and Brandi Pressgrove of Reckon Creative—discussed how the chapter got started, favorite programs from the past and how networking through NACE has helped grow their businesses and more.
