The city of Denver has a growing population of young professionals who are drawn to Colorado's natural beauty, sunny weather, and access to natural wilderness and outdoor recreation. Situated just east of the Rocky Mountains and a short drive from Boulder, Colorado, Denver has great locations for asking your honey to marry you, no matter what kind of experience you have in mind. Whether you want your proposal experience to be intimate and private, among other people, in a natural setting, or at a special event, Denver has options that cater to just about any vision you have in mind.
Red Rocks Amphitheater
This world-famous natural amphitheater is stunningly beautiful and provides incredible views of the city. At sunset, the red rocks take on a fiery hue as the golden hour illuminates the amphitheater. There are few better places for sunset proposal. The area surrounding Red Rocks is full of hiking trails and the amphitheater is accessible to the public when not in use.
A planned hike at Red Rocks culminating at the amphitheater might be the perfect way to share a beautiful experience and watch a stunning sunset. Watching the sun go down at this natural venue overlooking Denver and surprising your partner with an engagement ring might just be the most romantic way to propose.
Atop the Romantic D&F Clock Tower
Clock Tower Events operates a uniquely stunning venue atop the historic D&F Clock Tower in the heart of Denver. All five floors of the venue are connected by staircases, with two floors featuring wrap-around balconies with 360-degree views of the city, mountains, and Denver's incredible sunsets. While this is a great venue to consider for your wedding or reception, it's also one of the most romantic places to propose. Clock Tower Events offers packages specifically for proposals that include all the elements needed for a simple and unforgettable proposal, including champagne, music, flowers, and even an on-hand assistant who can capture the proposal on your camera or phone. After she says yes, you might both venture to the Clocktower Cabaret, a Parisian-styled nightclub with dazzling decor located in the basement of the tower.
Pop the cork and the question in style from the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency in Denver at the swanky Peaks Lounge. This is an opulent setting for your special moment, with floor-to-ceiling windows and incredible panoramic vistas. The ambiance is both classy and cozy, with plush, oversized chairs and sofas, the warmth of a blazing fireplace, and fancy cocktails. This is a lounge that invites you to linger and cozy up to your partner as you take in the view of the Rocky Mountains and city lights from the top of a skyscraper. It's a great place to share drinks and desserts as you watch the sun drop behind the mountains, but mind the prices to avoid a scary bar tab. This is one of Denver's most popular spots to propose.
