It’s a magazine editor’s dream to receive an email saying, “I have a great event space I wanted to get on your radar.” Sometimes, the statement leads to a ho-hum, not very interested reaction, but this one has me excited to see the results upon the expected fall opening of Society bordering the River North Art District (RiNo) in Denver. Formerly The Wrangler bar and nightclub, vacant since 2018, the three-story, 15,000-square-foot multipurpose collective at 3090 N. Downing St. will house three concepts: Thrive, Vibe, and Alive. 

Thrive

Society will be home to the second location of Boulder’s Thrive, featuring a dine-in restaurant, street-facing grab-and-go café, and on-site jun and cider brewery. Thrive focuses on plant-based, gluten-free, soy-free organic food. Jun, a fermented honey wine, will be brewed on-site by Ish Baker, founder of Ish’s Brew

Vibe

This collaborative social lounge and membership-based co-working space transforms into a music venue and event space with a high-fidelity sound system at night. Vibe will present a variety of happenings such as live music, dinner theater, rotating art galleries, pop-up markets, and performance art showcases such as burlesque and belly dancers. 

Alive

This tranquil wellness space is slated to feature a bodywork suite for massage therapists and body and energy workers to offer their services; a movement studio for classes such as yoga and dance, guided meditations, sound baths, and workshops; and an apothecary featuring handcrafted herbal products and a lounge space to indulge in house-made herbal elixirs and healthy beverages and snacks.

More

The Society Mural Project has assembled more than 20 Denver artists to create art for Society’s interior and exterior, led by Ally Grimm (aka A.L. Grime), Society’s art curator.

Iman Alia, co-founder of Society with Corey Jacobs and Crystal Wiggins, says, “We are driven to offer more than just a physical space, but to fill it with purpose and inspiration for our community to flourish in. Keeping the synergy of the mind, body, and soul as a guiding principle, we are committed to creating an inclusive space that fosters creativity, celebration, and connection."

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

While many know Colorado as a big craft beer state (fifth place ranking in the United States for number of craft breweries) and the founding place of Coors, its place on the nation’s wine map continues to expand. Just as some people prefer an IPA to a stout, some folks are more sauvignon black than merlot. What’s a meeting and event planner to do? 

Go local

 

Wyoming’s Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole has introduced the results of a major renovation in time for summer season. All suites, guest rooms and public hallways have been fully refreshed utilizing subtle colors and earth elements such as woods and metals.
