Welcome to Denver

Sponsored by Visit Denver

Welcome to Denver, a vibrant outdoor city where urban adventure, 300 days of sunshine, a thriving cultural scene and diverse neighborhoods combine to make the world’s best meeting destination.

The city is abounding in unique, only-in-Denver venues. Taking the train from Denver International Airport costs only $9 one way and will land you at Denver Union Station, a restored 1914 train station that is now home to a boutique hotel, local shops and chef-owned restaurants. Hosting an off-site meeting? Try a morning yoga class at the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre or get inspired by a breakout session at Denver Art Museum, the renowned home of one of the greatest American West art collections in the world. Plan a dinner event at The Source, a restored 1880s ironworks foundry that has been converted into a 21st century market and food hall, offering a bakery, fish market, dairy bodega, pizzeria and more.

For an exceptional dining experience, visit one of the many award-winning, chef-owned restaurants that are gaining national attention. Make a stop at the beloved Il Posto, an authentic scratch Italian kitchen, run by chef Andrea Frizzi, a passionate transplant from Milan. Get a risqué side of history with your meal at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, a 19th century brothel that chef Justin Cucci has transformed into an eclectic music hall and “gastrobrothel” featuring a globally inspired menu. Historic Larimer Square also boasts a wide variety of local culinary gems, including Rioja and TAG.

There are more than 2,000 restaurants in the Denver metro area, making innovative chefs and creative cuisine a trademark of The Mile High City. The dining scene is so sizzling that Zagat recently named Denver the No. 3 hottest food city in the country.
