ABOUT THE VENUE
Located adjacent to Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Mile High Station occupies the former Midwest Steel and Ironworks building. The original building dates back to the turn of the century (1897). At that time the building was a Denver landmark employing hundreds of Ironworkers and craftsmen. During the early 1900's, workers built and shipped large-scale ship sections for use by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Based on the significance of the building and the important role that it played in Colorado's history, the building is under consideration as a Historic building by the State of Colorado's historic preservation Officer.
Today, the building is home to the Mile High Station. The structure has been carefully renovated to preserve much of the original architectural features, including the old-brick exterior walls, "I-Beam" steel structure, and some of the original operational equipment. New features to the structure include an elevated mezzanine, kitchen, beautiful brick bar, custom chandeliers, large patio, plasma TV's, and in-house A/V system.
