New Downtown Denver Event Venue Anticipated for Fall 2018 Opening

Established in 1903, Ironworks is now accepting reservations for fourth quarter 2018 and 2019

Mile High Station announced the opening of Denver's newest private-event venue, Ironworks, set for public unveiling this fall. Established in 1903, the building was home to the Midwest Steel and Ironworks complex at 2027 W. Colfax and has been carefully restored. With more than 6,900 square feet of historic space, the open floor plan includes the original turret, a large bar and elegant chandeliers.

Owner Joe O'Dea said, "We wanted to offer a modern, open space and still keep some of the original touches like the exposed brick and steel beams."

The building provided the drafting needs for the metal fabrication next door – now Mile High Station, which reopened in 2001 as a private event venue as well. Together, the two-building complex can hold events, concerts and festivals for more than 1,000 guests with combined indoor and outdoor space. The two buildings (also known as the Midwest Steel Complex) produced and contributed framework to many Denver buildings including the City and County Building and East Denver High School.

Taps feature local brewers and a full kitchen will churn out a varied and delectable menu.

Dates for planned opening events will be announced in the coming weeks. Ironworks "The Venue with a Past" is now accepting reservations for fourth quarter 2018 and 2019 as well.
