DO NOT HOST YOUR EVENT AT DENVER FIELD HOUSE, IT’S A BAD DEAL IN MANY WAYS
This is a review of our experience at the Denver Field House Event Venue. It’s always our goal to help other event promoters and event organizers in Denver find the best venues in the city and in this instant identify places they should avoid.
Please note: This post is not intended to harm, this is a documentation of our experience and we feel compelled to share it with our community of event goers and event planners.
Management at Denver Field House – The management is incredibly unprofessional and disrespectful. We received an immature call from their management. After the owner cleared up the misunderstanding, she didn’t have the decency to call and apologize. They passed our event onto a new manager who, after the event ended, had the audacity to block the rental company that we used from getting their equipment and told them it was because we didn’t pay our bills. We didn’t pay our $23,500 bill right away
Venue Pricing at Denver Field House – The price for this venue is higher than it should be, based on its size and layout, the bar has an awkward placement that causes congestion as guests enter. The furniture included with rental should have been replaced years ago, you can hear the issues in the sound system. Our DJ said the wifi was slow and weak. They charge an extra $75 for the prep room when it’s very small and should be included with the venue. The kitchen is nice, but you need to have a catering company and then they charge you for the caterers using the kitchen. it’s nice they don’t charge extra for non-prefred catering companies like some venues. You will be better off going to an outside event rental company for your chairs, they charge $3 for chairs when most places charge $1.50 to $2.
Open Bar Package at Denver Field House – DO NOT DO THIS!!! We made a huge mistake (on their suggestion) and did this for our event. The bartenders gave us a bill that reflected 9 cocktail drinks and 3 champagnes equalling 11 drinks for every 300 attendees. When we questioned it, they said they were giving people up to 5 drinks at a time if they asked yet people were saying they had to wait for 30 minutes for a drink. The bill and complaints do not match up.
Bartenders at Denver Field House – The bar staff are super nice and will do what they can for you but are slow at serving drinks, I had 300 people at my event and over 20 people complained saying they wanted a refund because they waited for 30+ minutes in line for a drink. They will either
Bathrooms at Denver Field House – Don’t get me started, they stink, and the smell goes out to the dance floor.
Venue location at Denver Field House – The location is not bad, it has a great view of Invesco field for football lovers but on game days they charge $60 a head to park. Expect heavy traffic and a wait of at least 30 minutes.
In conclusion, we would advise you to keep searching for your perfect venue. The Denver Field House is a huge problem for a person or company hosting or promoting an event over 100 people. The upfront fee seems reasonable but they nickel and dime you so much on the back end, you wind up paying the same or, in our case, even more than a hotel venue without all the perks and professionalism you get at a hotel.
