October Wedding - An Eventective User from Westminster

The Rose Event Center was AMAZING! From the time that we had walked into the beautiful venue, Patricia and The Rose Event Center staff were awesome! When we had our tasting the staff was so kind and honestly wanted to make our day special. The food is amazing! You have to have the Mac-n-Cheese bites and the Chicken Skewers with the sauce! On the wedding night, it was fun to personalize the marquee, and they were so kind to our guests. I could not count how many times people told us that the staff was awesome! We used the Estate room upstairs which really brought our wedding to life. We had plenty of room for our guests to drink and enjoy each other’s company. The food staff had our food plated and ready for us to eat and Patricia made sure that everything was in place and on time. We would highly recommend The Rose Event Center for your wedding!

Such an Awesome Experience! - An Eventective User from Wisconsin

We hosted the Welcome Party for our sons’s wedding at The Rose. The venue was amazing and the staff were so friendly and efficient. Everything was seamless, from booking the venue with Patricia to working through all the details with Carissa to the staff who worked the event. I can’t say enough about how wonderful the event was. I would highly recommend The Rose to anyone planning an event. It was a great experience!

Best venue and staff ever! - An Eventective User from Denver, CO

We had our wedding here last weekend and couldn't have better things to say! Patricia is a lifesaver and she is so organized that it makes planning a wedding without a wedding planner easy. She is also the day of the event wedding coordinator, which was so helpful throughout the day. Honestly, Patricia had so many good ideas, recommendations for vendors, and overall advise throughout the wedding planning process. The staff at The Rose was very friendly and accommodating to all of our guests needs and we received a lot of great compliments on the food for our wedding. There were even a few guests who forgot to tell us about certain allergies prior to the day, the staff was able to accommodate their needs and made them something different. The venue is also very unique and customizable to all of your needs and the vision for your day! THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS THE BEST DAY EVER, many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to! :)

Wonderful Venue! - An Eventective User from Lakewood, CO

From the initial meet and greet/tour to the day of the event, the whole process was absolutely wonderful. The Stateroom venue was beautiful, updated and clean. The food was wonderful and they have a great selection to choose from. The staff was delightful to work with and very accommodating. We highly recommend using The Rose Event Center!

Best venue to host your wedding party! - An Eventective User from Denver

The Rose was the only venue my (now husband) and I physically went to see to host our reception. Upon walking in, we knew this was the place - the original exposed brick boasts the history of the building, theres the metal structure, leather and velvet furniture - I knew I only needed flowers and candles to decorate and the space would do the rest. A decor bonus is the venue has tall clear cylinder vases you can use! These were so helpful when trying to limit excess decor purchasing. We knew we wanted a live band and The Rose was perfect for that! We paid for the sound and lighting engineer (worth it!) and everything sounded amazing and transitioned flawlessly with all our different music types - from playlists to live music. We did their in-house bbq buffet for dinner and were told by several guests that to food was delicious! There are also a bunch of bar service options to choose from which limits a lot of coordination doing it all in house. This place was really very reasonable when it came down to food and beverages pricing with what you get. The staff were also very friendly. The real MVP of this venue is the wedding coordinator that you automatically get, Patricia! I didn't know I would need a wedding coordinator, but you do! She has a very thorough workbook you start working on right from the beginning (not gonna lie, it's a lot of work but it's so worth it), she's there to help with any and all of your questions. She helped us tailor our "we want a party with few wedding elements" to create the perfect reception for us. She also has a great calm, chill and yet professional attitude. On the day of I saw her with her clipboard and schedule in hand and asked "oh, you want to go over the schedule?" she replied "not with you, everything's taken care of and I will find you when I need you.. go enjoy!". She took care of everything! Once I took a breath, I didn't think or worry about timing or who was where or what had to be done. She was on top of it all. My mind is still blown away. Everything was just perfect! I cannot recommend this place enough. You also can't beat the location right in Golden which makes for a charming place for location and out of town guests.

A Dream Come True! - An Eventective User from Golden, CO

If you are looking for a timeless, romantic, and truly unforgettable experience, The Rose is the place for you. The wedding venue search can be quite exhausting and draining, but the moment we walked into The Rose, we knew this was the perfect venue. Our first encounter was with the venue coordinator, Patricia, and the second we met her, we knew we were in the right place. She walked us through the beautiful venue that had the perfect layout for all the wedding dreams to come true. We were blown away by the number of options The Rose had to offer. Their event staff and chefs were truly one of a kind and made for the most perfect experience. I highly recommend The Rose to everyone! You will not regret it!

Beautiful Wedding - An Eventective User from Erie

We had our wedding at the rose - it was fantastic! Patricia was very helpful in organizing everything, the food was great, and the space was unique and beautiful!

Rehearsal dinner - An Eventective User from Waco, Tx

My husband and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for 90 of our family members and friends. I cant say enough about Patricia Zutman and her staff! The venue was perfect for our special event! Patricia is AMAZING! She was available and attentive through the entire process, from the very beginning, even before our commitment to the venue up until the very end of the event. She is so patient, helpful, resourceful, and on point with email responses. I knew i could reach out to Patricia at any time and she would respond almost immediately. Our event couldn't have gone any smoother thanks to her and her staff! I cant thank you enough Patricia!

Great Place for a Rehearsal Dinner - An Eventective User from Crystal Lake

WOW!!!! WOW!!! The Rehearsal Dinner at The Rose out on the deck/patio area turned out beautifully! Thank you for all your help in putting together a very memorable event for our family - and many thanks to Crystal and David and the other Rose staff who served us that evening. Crystal did a great job under the "rain" pressure in trying to make the best out of the initial showers - and within a 1/2 hour the sun peeked through and there was even a rainbow!!! THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT!!! My compliments to you, Patricia, in helping with the selections and to the chef - the salmon and beef were absolutely delicious! We received many compliments throughout the night - from the hors d'oeuvres to the main course to the dessert - everything was so good! A group of us came back Saturday evening to enjoy another Rose dinner - and it was equally delicious! Patricia - you did an excellent job in bringing this event together. From beginning to end, you were thorough in all details and professional in handling all my questions and concerns. You delivered!!!! A big thank you! Julie, Greg, and Casey

Amazing wedding venue! - An Eventective User from Manhattan, Ks

We had our wedding at The Rose with All Four Seasons Events and it couldn’t have been a better experience. Such a beautiful venue and an amazing location. I cannot say enough about the incredible catering manager, bartenders, and other staff. We have not stopped thinking about the food. My mouth is literally watering as I think about the fried Mac n cheese sticks we served as appetizers and the southwestern buffer we had for dinner. It rained on our wedding day but luckily The Rose has the beautiful State Room that we used for many of our photos. More than anything, I have to thank the event coordinator, Patricia Zutman, who thought of every single detail and made the day run so smoothly. She is so organized and I can’t believe how fast her email response time always was. Patricia solved every crisis with ease and was incredibly supportive of all the personal touches we wanted to include. She made planning a wedding from out of state (and during a pandemic) so much less stressful and I couldn’t have done it without her. Our guests raved about the entire event and The Rose will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Beautiful wedding at the Buffalo Rose event center! - An Eventective User from Denver, CO

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Buffalo Rose event center with the help of Patricia Zutman and All Four Seasons Events planning (which we got courtesy of booking with the Buffalo Rose). We could not have been happier with how the wedding celebration turned out. Patricia was so easy to work with and we loved how transparent all the pricing and expectations were through her and the Buffalo Rose. Planning and celebrating a wedding during COVID craziness has been so challenging-- but Patricia was an excellent guide through the chaos. She always kept us up to date with all the rules and regulations and updated us about timelines and pricing should we choose to postpone and re-schedule. We ended up forging ahead and never did try to reschedule; and were fortunate enough to have all of our desired guests be a part of our celebration. The Buffalo Rose with All Four Seasons Events was able to accommodate almost everything, and provide recommendations for things they did not provide (Such as decorations, cakes, transportation etc.) Buffalo Rose catered the food for the event- which turned out delicious. They were also able to coordinate our other vendors (lighting and drapery, floral, cake etc.) to ensure everything was set up and taken down smoothly. Patricia did an excellent job guiding my husband and I through the wedding planning process and the day of made sure we kept our wedding on schedule to make sure that we had time for all the planned special moments. The only thing we would advise other couples to keep in mind when planning concerned the food. While it did turn out delicious, it was not the same as when we had our tasting... My husband and I had been blown away when we had our tasting at how fresh and well prepared all the food had been. Obviously cooking 4 portions of food to taste is different than preparing enough for a group of 140. So we were a little disappointed the food was not as good and fresh as it had been when we had our tasting. However, our guests still enjoyed everything and we wouldn't have done anything differently in the end. All in all would highly recommend. Thank you to the Buffalo Rose and Patricia, with All Four Seasons Events for helping make our day so magical. It was a celebration we and our guests will always remember.

Wedding of our dreams - An Eventective User from Morrison, CO

We recently had our wedding at The Rose in Golden and it was everything that we could ask for. The venue was able to accommodate the amount of guests that we wanted and with the historic aspect left and the classy remodeling that was completed a couple years ago it was perfect! It was important for us to have a place with enough space to make people comfortable as well as big bars! The stateroom upstairs is extra but in our opinion way worth it! The pricing was some of the best that we were able to find for the venue that included food, alcohol, table linens, etc. The food was amazing and fresh and they accommodated our request to have some of the appetizers served as late night snacks after you’re hungry from dancing and drinking some beverages. The staff was on point and had everything out timely and was very courteous. They also were very quick with their turn around time on the room since we did both our ceremony as well as we the reception there! Patricia who headed the wedding planning for The Rose was also a bonus! She was amazing to work with and had her T’s crossed and I’s dotted so nothing slipped through the cracks which is needed if you are a bride like I was with a million different things going on. Overall I would 100% recommend The Rose to anyone that is looking for a gem to get married at in Colorado!

What a Beautiful Night - An Eventective User from Colorado

The Rose Event center helped us to throw our dream wedding during the middle of the Covid Pandemic. It was a joy to work with them. Their food was par excellence and the venue was gorgeous. The staff was delightful and so helpful. They all wanted to make sure we felt special and taken care of on our wedding day. We kept having to change things due to Covid restrictions ever in flux, and Patricia was super helpful in navigating all the bumps along the way. We would recommend The Rose Event Center for your next event if you want top notch service, a beautiful venue, and delicious food. Thank you all so much. John and Brenna Stewart

A Beautiful Venue With Great Staff - An Eventective User from Lakewood, CO

The Rose is the perfect place to host your event or wedding! The venue is beautiful with lots of historical charm and staff went above and beyond our expectations to host our wedding even as Golden got two feet of snow! Staff members were professional and polite and we so enjoyed the food - having in-house catering will make your life much easier! Patricia, the event coordinator, made wedding planning a breeze and was very helpful on the day of (she even took it upon herself to give me an encouraging pep talk after I arrived covered in snow and having just learned that me hair and makeup artist canceled last minute). Despite all the craziness, we had a truly magical wedding! Thank you everyone at The Rose Event Center!

Classy space with professional staff - An Eventective User from Henderson, CO

The Rose Event Center was the perfect space to celebrate our wedding. The classy feel of the building itself, paired with the amazing service from the staff made it a warm and welcoming place to gather with our friends and family. And with the precautions in place due to the pandemic, we were able to have the tables properly distanced, the food served safely by professional staff, and the feeling of being in a clean and well-cared-for space. Our guests loved the venue, and it made for the most beautiful photos that we’ll enjoy for many years to come.

Amazing All-Inclusive Venue - An Eventective User from Edgewater, CO

When I saw the renovations to The Rose, I knew that it was the venue I wanted to host my wedding at. After meeting Patricia from All Four Seasons Event, their in-house wedding coordinator (!!!) and touring the place the decision was final, it was our one and only venue tour. The planning process was so easy since, 1. you get to work with Patricia who is the best wedding coordinator and 2. it's an all-inclusive venue. All-inclusive might seem scary since you don't get as many options as you would if you sourced everything from 18 million different vendors, but the convenience is 100% worth it and The Rose has curated an amazing selection of furniture, decor, linens, booze, and food. What's more is, just because it's all-inclusive doesn't mean you're locked into their preset offerings. We custom designed a menu to be served at interactive stations that guests could visit throughout the night instead of a traditional dinner service. Unfortunately due to the pandemic we had to postpone our wedding (two weeks before it was set to happen) and then recently made the decision to cancel our early 2021 wedding reception. The Rose staff was amazing throughout the whole process and we are so grateful for their amazing team. Since we were so close to our actual event we had completed the final walkthrough, food tasting, and even a little wine tasting they threw together for us. The food was AMAZING and I will dream in anguish about the mac and cheese sticks until they put them on the restaurant menu. After the final walk-through, I was so confident that our event was going to go off without a hitch. So it is what it is, but I would 100% recommend The Rose to any couple looking for a venue in the beautiful Historic Golden, CO.

Fantastic Event Location! - An Eventective User from GOLDEN

In Planning a party at Buffalo Rose, I found the event coordinator, Patricia, to be a breath of fresh air. I could tell the moment we met that we would enjoy working with her and her staff. Our family has a number of food allergies. Patricia understood the importance of crafting a menu that was allergen-free for all of us, that our guests would enjoy, and in the party theme! Sadly, COVID-19 has put a damper on our party plans. Even as we found ourselves in the position of having to cancel our party, Patricia and her team have risen to the occasion. They handled the cancellation in a very kind and understanding manor. I was prepared to forfeit our deposit, but they decided to return the deposit to us, given the circumstance. This organization is a pleasure to work with and we will look to them for planning future events. Buffalo Rose exceeded our expectations.

Dream Space - An Eventective User from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

My husband (fiance at the time) first toured the venue by himself. He is a native to Colorado, whereas I was living in Canada at the time. When I first saw the photos of The Rose venue I fell in love with it. It had everything we loved – an art deco décor, a mountain town feel, and historic significance. We planned our wedding in less than 4-months, with me in Canada for a majority of the planning, and it went off without a hitch! I was very impressed with this venue and with the service team. Our Event Coordinator and event staff were professional, pleasant, and prompt. The service and timing for everything were ideal. We had our wedding ceremony in front of the stage in the main venue and used the State Room for post-ceremony photos, while our guests enjoyed Cocktail Hour in the Lobby. Our menu featured Colorado inspired hors d'oeuvres, a plated dinner, and a hosted Signature Cocktail bar. We also treated our guests to some late-night tamales. Our guests are still raving about the quantity and quality of food served by The Rose. Our DJ provided some up-lighting, which we felt helped to illuminate the space. The Rose is full of photo opportunities, such as personalizing the marquee out front (super cute), under the Welcome to Golden sign, as well as up in the State Room against the elegant bar. I would highly recommend The Rose to you for any of your special occasions. My only regret is not pausing to take a moment to take it all in. To sum it all up in one sentence, The Rose helped make our wedding dream come true.

Great Space! - An Eventective User

Our office holiday party was a hit! We loved the venue and the food. Highly recommend.

Amazing Venue for High School Mountain Bike Team Awards Ceremony! - An Eventective User from Goden, CO

We held out end of season Team Awards ceremony at the Buffalo Rose last night. The team has nearly 100 athletes. The room was set for 190 people, all of whom showed up! Dinner was a Taco Bar that moved smoothly and easily allowing all guests to eat in a timely manner. We used the Stage and AV equipment provided by the Buffalo Rose and everything went smoothly and easily! Our interactions with the events coordinator and other staff were painless and simple. I don't know how many stars I can rate the Buffalo Rose with, but I will select the highest number possible! We look forward to holding next year's ceremony, and all future awards ceremonies here! What an amazing venue! What an amazing Staff! Thank You Buffalo Rose for supporting our community by providing your services to our team!!!

A PERFECT venue! - An Eventective User

We had a small (24 ppl) surprise anniversary party at Buffalo Rose on Saturday, 6/15 and it was perfect from beginning to end! I worked with Patricia to finalize the details, menu and bar options. She was quite responsive, helpful and very personable. Our event was in the Back Deck area, which I highly recommend for groups of this size -- it's technically outdoor, but covered overhead on and on two sides. The open front area looks out to the bar seating and live music stage. There was a band during our event which added to the ambiance and our guests really enjoyed. The food is very good and the bar options are plentiful (and quite cost effective for an open bar). Patricia and team made us feel very welcomed and were so helpful the entire evening. I cannot say enough great things about this venue - we had such positive comments from all of our guests and would definitely return!

Spectacular!! - An Eventective User

My husband and I hosted our son's college graduation lunch at The Buffalo Rose. Patricia Zutman, the event coordinator, is very knowlegeable, helpful and an absolute delite to work with. Everyone kept complimenting on the wonderful food and venue. The Buffalo Rose has hit a homerun with their remodel and adding the event areas.
