If you're planning your wedding, consider having the entire celebration at Coohills. The historic walking bridge that leads to our outdoor dining area is a perfect setting for "I do's" and it would be hard to find a more scenic venue for pictures - memories for a lifetime!
Coohills' space is unique, from the expansive windows in the main dining room to the spacious outdoor patio with a beautiful view of the Cherry Creek and the historic walking bridge, just steps away. The entire restaurant can hold up to 400 people, the smaller private room can hold up to 40 guests and the larger room can accommodate up to 100. When combined both rooms can seat up to 140 guests and with combined rooms and additional community seating we can seat up to 160.

The Wewatta Bridge located directly in front of Coohills is a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony, reception or space for a unique outdoor dinner. This is a public space that we temporarily reserve for the day.
We apply for a Special Event Bridge Permit to occupy this space for the day and there is a $300 permitting fee for us to apply for this. They ask for a 6-8 week turnaround time for approval. Coohills will apply for this permit for you. There will be a mandatory $100 bridge clean up fee, which will be pre-charged and refunded the following day if cleaning is not required by our staff. The Special Event Bridge Permit allows access to the bridge from 10:00AM – 10:00PM the day of your event.
Special Event Bridge Permit:
Once the Special Event Permit has been approved then the liquor license can be applied for. If we are serving alcoholic beverages during an event in which tickets have been sold to or there is a cash bar on the bridge there is a $750 nonrefundable fee that goes directly to the City of Denver that allows us to temporarily modify our liquor license for the day onto that public space. They require 30 day minimum turnaround time for approval. We require a bar be set up on the bridge to display the wine and beer options available to your guests. The City of Denver requires that only plastic cups, provided by the party, be used on the bridge in case of any breakage.
Liquor License Fee:
*Additional set up fees and bartender fees will apply for any bar set up on the bridge.
Chairs, tables, bar set up, décor and/or any set up requirements must be provided by an outside rental company or personally provided. Coohills does not provide this since we do not own the property. Please see our vendor list for rental companies we have worked with on previous events. The City of Denver requires that the bridge be closed off during the event, stanchions can be rented from any of our event rental companies (client to provide this) in order to avoid any pedestrians trying to walk across the bridge during your event. Coohills will provide detour signs directing pedestrians across the street.
Due to the fact that we are a part of the “Good Neighbor Policy” in our area with all of the residential buildings that surround us, there is a strict 10:00pm cut off time for music of any kind on the bridge itself. Clients have the option to continue with the music inside of the restaurant for the duration of their event. *See Noise Ordinance section in contract
Confetti, Flower Petals, Glitter, Glue, Paint, Candles that have an open flame (can be an enclosed flame)
