Parties & Special Events : Catering Options

Flexible Denver Metro Special Events Venue

Exceptional Events at Reasonable Prices

I am a party coordinator for my company. We have had our Holiday party at The Summit for the past 2 years, and our experience has been absolutely wonderful. Everything is always very easy to plan, the first year they walked me through everything and it made my job so much easier. The staff will do everything they can to help or accommodate in whatever I need. They have beautiful decorations and great tasting food and best of all, it’s very affordable. I would recommend having your Holiday Party or any of your parties at The Summit !!

The Summit Conference and Event Center works with premier licensed catering partners to provide guests with food and beverage packages to meet just about any budget or distinctive palette. Our menus are not a complete list of options but rather some of the most popular offerings, and can accommodate special dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan or gluten free. We work with our customers on all aspects of the meeting or conference including the catering, and then we coordinate with our catering partners to make it happen!  

Alternatively, The Summit Conference and Event Center gives you the option of bringing in your own catering. We are one of the very few Denver event venues that does not require licensed Denver caterers and we do not force you to use one of our approved catering companies. When you choose this option, we charge a simple room rental fee. The rate mainly depends on how many guests you expect (which tells us how much space and staff you will be needing) so ask our sales staff for a free quote. 

Below are some details about these two options.
