Venue 221, Cherry Creek North’s premier event space, is launching the 2017 event season with special hourly rates, an invitation to preview the venue and a non-profit program dubbed The Great Giveback.

The boutique event company will donate its space to a non-profit organization quarterly. For more information about applying for the space visit Venue 221’s website.

Venue 221 also is offering an hourly rate of $400 that includes tables, chairs, lounge furniture, in-house audio/visual and media wall.

Designed by Denver architect Michael Knorr, the 1,500-square-foot mid-century modern event space at 221 Detroit can accommodate receptions of up to 150 guests and seated dinners of up to 120 people.

The modern decor offers warm walnut woods, artistic wall coverings in a neutral palette, period-inspired lighting and state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment. The first floor Ashlar room features a built-in club-style bar adjacent to a cozy lounge area adorned with mid-mod furniture and a stone fireplace.

Venue 221 is hosting an open house at the venue from 11 am to 4 pm on June 20.
