Meet your OG pilot, Bob Stanley.

The Stanley Aviation building sits right by the former site of the original Denver airport’s main runway. Founder and aviation pioneer Bob Stanley's test planes used to take off and land from this very spot; he was even known to occasionally sneak his plane out along the runway for a private late night flight.

AN AVIATOR'S PLAYGROUND TURNED BUSTLING MARKETPLACE.

Stanley Marketplace is the ideal space for all types of events, ranging from small receptions to giant festivals. Whether you’re looking to keep it just among friends, or invite the whole neighborhood, we can accommodate.

Here at Stanley, we believe in doing things differently: sustainably, thoughtfully, creatively, and with more than the bottom line in mind. See this vision come to life around every corner and in every one of the 50+ local businesses that make up our Stanley family. From corporate events and fundraisers to those “just because” gatherings, no detail is too small, and nothing is overlooked. 


THE VENUES

The Hangar at Stanley is a wonderful place to mix the old with the new. 

 

We hope The Hangar at Stanley will be the final destination for all of your event needs. As one of the largest indoor and outdoor venues in the Aurora and Denver metro area, we are able to host all types of events. Complete with original structures from our 1954 building, including steel beams, polished concrete floors, and 30-inch light fixtures that once lit up Stanley Aviation, any event in our space will spark intrigue and curiosity. Step onto the venue's patio to experience movable flourishing greenery and the original Stanley Aviation weigh station, retrofitted as the perfect focal point of your event.

Welcome to the best view in the house.

 

The Upper Deck at Stanley is one of the only third-floor locations in the building, offering expansive views of the Stanley grounds among the backdrop of the Front Range mountains. The Upper Deck serves as an exclusive VIP experience, solace from a pulsing event below, or a stage for artistic installations. Find a rotating series of art hanging on or from the deck throughout the year, or bring your own to give your event an extra pop!
