About Our Venue:

Located atop the historic D & F Clock Tower in the heart of Denver, this new venue features five unique floors connected by staircases. Two of the floors offer wrap-around balconies affording breathtaking panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains. The décor throughout is chic & modern. During December our venue is beautifully decorated for the holidays to create a fun & festive mood. We can also provide music. Perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony, or a unique, progressive style reception, party, or dinner!


Our 5 floor venue can accommodate groups of 10 -150 people if spread throughout the space. Ceremonies or presentations where guests need to be all in one area usually take place on our 18th floor with the giant clock faces providing a stunning backdrop. We can seat around 50-60 on this floor. For standing presentations, we can accommodate more on our Observation Deck floor & Mezzanine below. For smaller groups, we have designed fun, progressive style events where guests can dine floor by floor, ending up with dessert inside the bell tower itself. Contact us for more information on these unique types of events. Additionally, we’d be happy to customize something to fit your specific event. Floor plans are available upon request.
