Flowers, food, photo booths and entertainment are incredibly important for any event you’re throwing. But, they all depend on one very necessary piece of the puzzle- your venue! Choosing your venue should be what begins your event planning journey, and what ties all the small details together at the end. Even if you’re simply in need of a modern, simple space, it still needs to be in your perfect location, and accessible for everyone in attendance. And we have a recommendation just for that!

If we had to describe this venue in three words, it would be versatile, spacious, and polished. They’re ideal for any event theme, events of any size, and pride themselves on hosting a crazy range of events, from small receptions to giant festivals. Stanley Venues and their trendy, contemporary spaces are perfect whether you’re looking to keep it just among friends, or invite the whole neighborhood. No matter what- they have your back, and will accommodate your unique needs. From corporate events and fundraisers to those “just because” gatherings, no detail is too small, and nothing is overlooked.

At Stanley, they believe in doing things a little different than your average venue: they focus on being sustainable, thoughtful, creative, and work with more than the bottom line in mind. You can see this vision come to life around every corner, and in every one of the 50+ local businesses that make up our Stanley family. Because not only are their venues built for variety, they take that love of inclusivity and mold the rest of the marketplace around that same idea. When you work with Stanley, you support local creatives that serve a tight knit community. Your event gets the attention it deserves from their wonderful staff, and you get to feel good about the business you’re doing.

As one of the largest indoor and outdoor venues in the Aurora and Denver metro area, Stanley can handle any event you throw at them. We guarantee that their adaptability will impress any guest that attends. What sets Stanley apart visually is their original structures from the 1954 building, including steel beams, polished concrete floors, and 30-inch light fixtures that once lit up Stanley Aviation. Step onto the venue’s patio to experience the original Stanley Aviation weigh station, retrofitted as the perfect focal point of your event.

Not to be too technical, but if you need further proof of the spaciousness they offer, The Stanley Hangar features 18,500 square feet of indoor/outdoor space and 40+ foot ceilings allowing for large scale activations. The Hangar is a turnkey event space with a large collection of rental items, AV, catering kitchen and parking included in the rental fee. Additionally, there are unique opportunities to incorporate Stanley Marketplace and its businesses into events, including the Catering Collaborative at Stanley. They really make sure you have all the options in the world to elevate your event, which makes the entire process less stressful by a mile.

It only takes one visit to Stanley to see how special their venue spaces are, especially added on to the marketplace they’re attached to. If we’ve peaked your interest, learn more on their venue website, marketplace website, or simply give them a call!
