    POSTED November 27, 2018
     

Opening in spring 2019, Asterisk is a venue that will bring community and events together under one roof.

Located in the up-and-coming Arapahoe Park area, adjacent to RiNo, Asterisk can host groups up to 1,500 reception-style and over 800 for dining events in the main hall. Smaller groups can be be accommodated with multiple special event entities set up in the space from catering stations to dancing areas and a presentation stage.

The interior is designed with intent to be more of a blank palette, so planners can infuse the space with their own vision. The venue also includes access to a 1,700-square-foot rooftop deck that can be used for events only or in combination with the main hall. The second floor offers a boardroom that can also be used as a preparation or green room for entertainment groups or wedding parties.

The venue catering list includes the following: A Spice of Life, Biscuits and Berries, Catering by Design, Epicurean Culinary Group, Footers Catering, Occasions Catering, Relish Catering Company and Three Tomatoes.

Asterisk is currently offering a pre-booking incentive special by offering 20% off venue rental rates for all events that book prior to March 1, 2019 and host their event in 2019. Additional discounts apply for a multi-day, event rental opportunity.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

Since The Armstrong Hotel temporarily closed on January 1 to undergo a full property renovation and redesign, the property has reopened with an expanded lobby space, upgraded suites and a complete interior refresh and redesign.
