Celebrate @ The Rose

Social and Corporate Events

The collection of Buffalo Rose properties combines an authentic western American history with contemporary amenities, making it the ideal venue for holiday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate conferences, reunions, celebrations of life, charity galas, or just a cozy fireside night out with friends. The flexibility of The Rose allows for parties as small as 15 to as many as 650 to reserve and enjoy their own private space for a once in a lifetime experience.

The Barbershop

A true piece of American West history in the heart of downtown Golden, this building was originally called the “Iler Block” and now serves as the entry area for the reconfigured Buffalo Rose bar and restaurant. This classic old west structure was built in 1871 and operated as the Sportsman Barbershop for over a century from 1901-2017. The building is located at the corner of Washington Ave. and 12th St. and was completely restored as part of the recent remodel project.

The Barbershop features one of the only exposed brick nogged walls still standing in the entire world! The space also features an original vaulted ceiling, handsome interior wood siding preserved from the Civil War era, and cozy lounge seating arrayed thoughtfully around a charming stone fireplace. The room opens conveniently out on to a patio along 12th Ave. The room is perfect for a smaller celebrations (15 inside + 15 on the patio) and works well for cocktail-style/heavy hors d’oeuvres style events.

The Buffalo Room

Established in 1859 as the International Bowling Saloon and re-built in its present architectural form in 1902, The Buffalo Room is the site of the oldest bar in the state of Colorado. The recent remodel fully restored the classic masonry facade, re-exposed and highlighted the original interior brick walls, and revealed many distinct architectural elements that have characterized this wonderful building since the early 20th century.

The Buffalo Room is a semi-private dining room in our restaurant and is available for private dining. It is ideal for larger social dining functions (75 ppl). You can also add on the attached patio for an additional fee (20 ppl).

The Back Deck

The Buffalo Rose has long had an energetic outdoor patio along 12th St. The Buffalo Rose patio remains in its original location, but is now directly connected to a new Buffalo Rose bar by way of a large glass door opening. The private patio section that we refer to as “The Back Deck” seats up to 25 guests.

Book The Back Deck and you and your friends will enjoy a cocktail party with live patio music in a comfortable outdoor setting. The area has two fire pits and is under a roof to shelter your party from the crazy Colorado elements. The Back Deck is set-up with patio-style lounge seating and works well for cocktail-style/heavy hors d’oeuvres style events. This inviting space is ideal for smaller receptions.

Add on the open-air Back Patio to accommodate an additional 25 guests (total seating for 50). This space is set-up with high-top tables, umbrellas, and patio-style lounge seating.

The Venue Lobby

Built in 1922 and converted into an elegant indoor pool in 1928 called the “Golden Plunge”, The Rose event venue is a distinct and beloved downtown Golden property. This attractive two-story masonry building was fully restored to its bygone-era art deco glamour during the recent facility renovation. Visitors enter the building under the classic grand marquee on Washington Ave. and are immediately transported back in time to the great western American theaters of the early 20th century.

Soaring ceilings, bold steel trusses, elegant lighting and original brick walls define the new venue and Lobby space. In addition, The Lobby has a fully stocked bar, classic parlor games, and two big-screen televisions. This space is quite unique as it allows for a lounge, a bar, and dining space for tables to be set up and is ideal for moderate social dining functions (60 ppl).

The State Room

Located on the mezzanine level of The Rose event venue directly above Washington Ave. With nearly 1000 square feet of steam-punk elegance, The State Room has a private bar with its own highly curated drink program, private bathrooms, an elegant fireplace, and two large TV screens for watching the live event happening on the venue stage or to enjoy televised sporting events.

Guests can access The State Room through a dedicated entrance on Washington Ave. or through the main venue space. The room is set-up with lounge and bar seating (50 ppl) and works well for cocktail-style/heavy hors d’oeuvres style events. This luxurious space is ideal for smaller receptions.
