Boogie at the Broadmoor: The Venue
The Broadmoor Hotel is a world-class five-star resort in Colorado Springs, CO. It’s only 75 miles from Denver, but a world away from city life. You’ve got tons of iconic Colorado scenery to explore – mountains and rivers and canyons, oh my!
This hotel has been in operation for over 100 years, so we’re pretty sure they’ve got everything dialed in. They’ve got a movie theater, bowling alley, spa, golf course, and about a dozen restaurants and bars. They make a point to mention their ice service, so prepare to be spoiled, ice-lovers!
