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.

Contact Shayla Englund or Devin Andersen at 303-623-5700 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, we would love to plan your special day!
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)
Items not allowed on the bridge/restaurant include but aren’t limited to:

I wanted to write this email to let you know that everything was absolutely perfect for our wedding on the 30th! Devin, you did an amazing job capturing my vision of the set up of everything. It was exactly how I envisioned things and there were so many compliments on everything.
The Food was also superb... again, many compliments on the hors doeuvres and all the plated meals. The salad, the bread, and all the entries looked and tasted delicious.
The wait staff was awesome! Everyone was so accommodating, friendly, and attentive.
The cake was perfect.. again exactly how I pictured in my head.
I just can't say enough thanks to the three of you for helping organize everything these past few months. It has been a pleasure working with each of you, and I will be sure to send anyone I know your way!
Erik and I appreciate everything so very much. Our day was perfect and walking into the restaurant with everything set up made my heart so happy!

Good Morning All!
Joe and I want to thank you all for helping us to have such a beautiful wedding! From the bridge to the dining room, the food and the atmosphere were outstanding. Hank and his crew were great to work with - pleasant, responsive and good humored - and we heard so many positive comments from our guests. Our thanks to you all!
Michelle | June 11, 2017
Good Morning Diane,
I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for ensuring our successful reception last night. Great reviews on the food, the restaurant and the staff. Julie was terrific and Hank finished of the evening perfectly. Your truffle and cake maker-extraordinaire (Sydney?) was a delight as well. Such talent! I'm so glad we booked Coohills. I told Julie we might stop by if time permits as I wanted to thank you personally, but I'll have to see if the schedule allows for a quick diversion. Again, thank you so much for taking care of my guests.

Our rehearsal dinner on Friday was beautiful and absolutely perfect! The food was phenomenal, as always, the staff was perfectly attentive and very professional – my father in law gave an impromptu speech and when they saw it happening they quietly stepped in the room to turn the volume of the music down – and the room was great! I especially thank you for accommodating the special meal request for a pepperoni pizza from my young niece! I completely neglected to request a child’s meal ahead of time and our servers could not have been kinder helping to fix my mistake.
Thank you as always for the wonderful night!
Melanie M. | Monday, August 1, 2016
Thanks so much for such an amazing evening! It could have not been any better or more perfect! The food was amazing, the venue was perfect, and everyone was so helpful and accommodating. Sean and I are so thankful to have had our wedding at such a wonderful place.
All of our guests noted how amazing the food was. Especially the smore dessert! Please give our compliments to the chef and the great team who created all of the wonderful food.

I apologize that this has taken me so long to reply to your voicemail. Our new home is unfortunately located in a great location with poor cell service! The wedding was amazing and everyone raved about the food and location! Thank you for providing such a high level of service. All of your staff were accommodating and made our special day possible.
Thank you for reaching out to check in. I value this opportunity to share our experience. Andrew and I absolutely loved our wedding and we are glad to have memories at Coohills. I would most definitely tell others to consider your space and service. What I would share most was your ability to assist us when we overlooked an item. Having planned our event entirely by ourselves, it was great to have a helping hand when we missed a detail. From beginning to end you all were amazing. Lastly, I want to express how amazing the food was at the event. From the appetizers to the cake it was delicious and guests could not stop raving about it.

To Tom, Diane, Shayla, Alexis and all the rest of the Coohills crew:
Thank you so much for the well wishes and congratulations - you certainly deserve a lot of the credit for helping us put together our vision of a perfect, casual celebration. I can't tell you how many of our guests have come up to me with kind words about the ceremony, the venue, the courteous service, and (of course) the utterly delicious food. Please let your pastry chef know that several guests told me the wedding cake was among the best they have ever tasted - I have heard that piece of flattery from other non-guests who were simply helping us dispose of the wedding cake leftovers!
We certainly appreciate all of the background coordination and the phenomenal attention to detail. None of our guests with food sensitivities reported any problems and one guest (with a cinnamon allergy) was beyond thrilled to realize she could enjoy all of the desserts! It was an absolute pleasure working with you, and we won't hesitate to recommend Coohills to others. Rest assured - we enjoyed the experience so much that we plan to use you for all of our future weddings! (joking aside - you will certainly see us for our anniversary!)
Misty, John and Alex

Diane, Shayla, thank you and your TEAM for the incredible rehearsal dinner experience. We arrived late causing a bit of a scramble to get the folks seated and left later than planned but you adeptly accommodated the changes. Your waitstaff was superb - timely, attentive and efficient. Make sure to thank them for us. The menu was appropriate and the cuisine incredible from the bread pepper truffle-infused salt butter all the way to the bread pudding (wow!) for the final course.
Thanks for making our visit a great memory. We hope to thank you in person next time we are in Denver.

Thank you Diane, we and our wedding party had a fantastic time at your very fine restaurant. All expectations were met and the overall experience exceeded our vision. We'll look forward to dining with you again.
Aleta Hebner | Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Coohills hosted my daughters wedding recently. The staff was excellent and attentive, the food delicious and beautifully presented. We had constant attention by the staff and never felt like I was waiting for anything. Great time had by all.
Rachel and Todd | Monday, October 19, 2015
Diane and Shayla,
We're back to reality after our honeymoon but have not stopped talking about or hearing from our guests about how wonderful our wedding was. Thank you both so much for all of your hard work! We are beyond thrilled with everything - venue, food, staff - all exceeded our expectations. It was so sweet of you to send the gift card as well - thank you! We are looking forward to coming in for dinner soon.
All the best!

Shayla and Diane,
Sorry that I didn't send you this note sooner! After the wedding, we headed off to Vancouver for our honeymoon and have been go, go, go ever since. We wanted to tell you thank you for a wonderful evening. Actually, let me rephrase that. We wanted to thank you for the best night of our lives so far! It was perfect. We received endless compliments on everything: how beautiful the venue was, how incredible the food was and how wonderful your staff was. Alexis was phenomenal. Our table absolutely loved her - she took such great care of us! All of your staff was so sweet to the kids and made sure the parents were happy and had what they needed. Plus, one of your staff members said my sister's toast was the best bridesmaid toast ever, so that got extra points in our family's book!
The cake was so cute and even better than I expected. Plus, the macaroons were a huge hit - they were delicious, adorable and coordinated so well with our wedding colors and theme. I am only sad that we didn't get to enjoy the appetizers and desserts because everyone said they were so good! Apparently, the risotto balls and the bread pudding were everyone's favorite items. Everything was so well organized, detailed and looked gorgeous from start to finish.
Everyone always says that the bride and groom don't actually get to enjoy the wedding, but that couldn't be further from the truth for us. We had such a fun time and when I look at pictures, I can't imagine it being any more perfect or in any better of a place. We are so thankful that we found Coohills and are lucky that we were able to host our friends and family there for our big day. It was an amazing start to our marriage and new life together and we will always remember what an incredible night we had.
Thank you for all of your help along the way and making sure everything went so smoothly. We will be back soon to celebrate again...maybe for our one month anniversary, one year or just any old night we feel like enjoying the lovely space and remembering our night.

My wife and I got married here. The owners are very attentive and all the staff made our wedding even more memorable. The food on the day was fantastic and my dad still talks about it. Even when we come back to visit, the food is very high quality and the staff are great. Today we sat on the patio and watched the sunset, which it was fantastic.
Don & John | August 31, 2015
Dear Diane and Shayla,
We wanted to formally thank you for all the care and attention you gave to our wedding. By all accounts it was a grand success! The next time we're in town, we'll come for dinner.
