Mile High Station Announces Opening Date for Ironworks Denver
The partner venue will open its doors November 1
As renovations and updates wrap up, Mile High Station will officially open its highly anticipated partner venue, Ironworks Denver, November 1. The building has been carefully restored all summer and will now include a 7,000-square-foot event space with the original turret and a large bar.
"We wanted to offer a modern, open space and still keep some of the original touches like the exposed brick and steel beams," says owner Joe O'Dea.
Together the two-building complex – previously known as Midwest Steel Complex – will host events, concerts and festivals, holding more than 1,000 people with combined indoor-outdoor space.
The Ironworks building first opened in 1903 and was the home of the Midwest Steel company. Mile High Station and the Ironworks buildings were Denver landmarks employing hundreds of ironworkers and craftsmen. The two buildings formerly produced and contributed framework to many Denver buildings, including the City and County Building and East High School.
These historic buildings were given new life in 2001 when Mile High Station opened as a private event venue.
