3. The Studio

Another workspace/event venue hybrid, The Studio combines rustic charm with a luxury party experience. You’ve probably seen the quirky vintage bus that is often used as decor and lounging space at events at The Studio, along with their other extremely Instagrammable decor like neon signage and string lights. Perfect for crowds as little as 20 or as much as 200, The Studio offers a layout and space that can change to accommodate as intimate or as big as your party gets. 

The rate to rent the event space for parties begins at $2,600 for the 2,900 sq. feet space, comfortably fitting up to 200 people. 

3. Sanitas Brewing Company 

This Boulder beer favorite offers a taproom, brewpub, and of course, an event space so that you and your party are never more than an arm’s reach away from a good brew! From holiday parties, to birthdays, reunions, and showers, the brewery space at Sanitas offers a different experience from your usual banquet hall. Vats of beer tower over the space, and exposed brick and wood creates the feeling of a home away from home.

Renting a space at Sanitas Brewing Co. depends on the event that you want, how many people are coming, and time of year. The space can be as small or as big as you need. Quotes are given upon inquiry!
