The Best of Colorado 2019 places to meet, lounge and team-build

BEST MEETING + EVENT VENUE

MILE HIGH STATION

If you hold your wedding, corporate event or fundraiser at Mile High Station, you don’t have to worry about bar patrons sneaking in to eat your food, or guests of other events grabbing one of your goody bags. The venue holds one event at a time, and the staff makes the client their No. 1 priority. “We are strictly an event venue,” says Stephanie Walter, director of sales and marketing. “We are not a brewery or art gallery or distillery, and we eat, breathe and sleep events.”

Mile High Station, and the new Ironworks next door, is located in a historic downtown Denver building that in 1903 was the drafting building for the Midwest Steel & Ironworks Complex. More recently the space was featured in the TV series “Top Chef,” and new this year will be a summer concert series on Sundays and Thursdays.

BEST TEAM-BUILDING PLACE

TOPGOLF

You can learn a lot about co-workers when you’re all trying to hit golf balls. If you’re mostly indoors and there are chef-driven foods and adult beverages, all the better. Topgolf offers games such as Top Scramble, Quick 9, Top Chip, and others. Players hit the balls to red, yellow and green targets, and microchip technology in the golf balls helps keep score. All-inclusive packages include food, drink, play and a dedicated staff. Companies can rent a bay or one of the several event spaces with AV capabilities, private bar and HDTVs.
