Huge 5 stars to the team at the rose. Patricia was fantastic from start to finish. We had only one big error with our wedding party announcement, which I think was just communication from the DJ to Patricia. Minus that it was a flawless, perfect wedding. Loved having a buffet and highly recommend to anyone doing a wedding here. The bar staff was amazing!

I would give 10 Stars if that was an option! Starting with the Event Staff (Emily). She was great to work with and made it all happen. The Wait Staff and the Buffalo Room were perfect! The food was amazing! Great location for a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Thank you for starting our wedding weekend off with an amazing evening!

We had our company Holiday party here with 90 attendees. It was the first time we have had a celebration like this to include significant others. I was so impressed with how easy the process was with The Rose and how reactive Patricia was in helping pull things together. The space is super cute and the service team were awesome. One of our guests commented on the food stating it was the BEST buffet he had ever had. needless to say, everyone was Very pleased. i would highly recommend The Rose for any corporate celebration or event.

We hosted a "post wedding brunch" on a Monday morning at The Rose, in the Buffalo Room in November, 2023. The woman that was helping us on the day of the event (Heather) was very helpful and sweet to work with. The food was plentiful and delicious! Left-overs were packed up for us to take home and the entire staff was accommodating to our specific requests. My only "less than glowing" comment would be that our event was pretty pricey, in my opinion. Emily did her best to give us the "best bang for our buck" and included some bottles of wine so we could meet the minimum charges, but I still felt this was an expensive brunch. But it turned out just great and everyone had a fine time and complimented our choices of venue and food! I would definitely recommend "The Rose" if your budget allows!

Choosing The Rose for our wedding venue was the best decision EVER. We had our dream wedding thanks to Patricia and The Rose. It was truly the best night of our lives. From the first day we signed the contract, Patricia was amazing, supportive, and very communicative. It took SO much of the stress out of the planning process just knowing we had Patricia’s expertise and support. She is very organized and experienced, and she helped make the day/night run smoothly. Having her as a part of the package when you sign on with The Rose is INVALUABLE!! Patricia alone deserves 5 stars!!! Another huge selling point for us was having things included - the food, drinks, tables, chairs, linens, and flatware come from The Rose, so all you have to worry about coordinating yourself is DJ/band, photographer/videographer, and decor. We kept our decor minimal, so all we had to worry about vendor-wise was DJ and photographer, which made it much less stressful for us than other weddings where the people getting married have to coordinate a million vendors. We also loved the space itself. We kept our decorations pretty minimal to save money and effort and the space still looked gorgeous. The exposed brick and vaulted ceilings are amazing. And when you put candles on the tables/booths, it spruces up the space SO MUCH. We used a wooden arbor as our backdrop on the stage, and while I’ll admit it’s not the prettiest ceremony backdrop ever, it’s worth it to have everything else The Rose offers. (You can also get curtains/more stage decor for the ceremony if you want, we just didn’t want to spend the extra money.) The sound/acoustics in the venue are AMAZING. They host concerts so the stage would be great for a band, but we had a DJ (Ethan from Elite Entertainment), and it was incredible. Our dance floor was lively the whole night and multiple guests said it felt/looked like a club (in a good way, LOL). It was exactly the upbeat/happy/fun party vibe we wanted for the dancing portion of the night. Also, the bartenders were amazing, and the service was VERY fast. We had a 160-person wedding and people never had to wait more than 3 minutes for a drink. We really appreciated the great bar service. We paid the extra $ to have the extra State Room bar upstairs during cocktail hour and dinner, and it was definitely worth it, especially for the size of our wedding. Lastly, we were very happy with the food. SO many of our guests complimented the food during and after the wedding. The plated meals and appetizers were all amazing. I also heard the desserts and late-night foods were very good, but I didn’t try any because I was busy dancing :) Overall, the ambiance and vibe of the venue was immaculate. It’s hard to explain, but the vibes were just soooo gooood and the space was so fun! Also, having our names on the marquee was a fun addition that everyone loved and took photos under. The ONLY "cons" are that it’s not the prettiest backdrop for a ceremony (we got married on the stage) and the lighting can be difficult for photographers so just make sure you communicate with your photographer about the lighting and make sure they are comfortable shooting in a dark space. Our guests still have not stopped raving about how amazing the wedding was, and it was the wedding of our dreams. We’re so glad we chose The Rose and not a venue in the mountains. Most of our guests stayed at either The Golden Hotel, The Table Mountain Inn or airbnbs in Golden, so our guests got to enjoy Golden the whole weekend, which was amazing because most people came from out of town. Cannot recommend this venue enough!!!!!!!!
