Introducing The Hangar at Stanley

Let us welcome you and your next event through our oversized Hangar doors, large enough for a full-size jet. Covering a total of 18,500 square feet, the new Hangar at Stanley is a dynamic event space in the heart of Stanley Marketplace. The venue is the ideal space for all types of events, ranging from small receptions to large galas. The Hangar at Stanley is a wonderful place to mix the old with the new. Stanley Aviation sits right by the former site of the original Denver airport's main runway. Our Hangar doors, built in 1954, open onto what used to be a jetway that led directly to runway 26. 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. We're eager to help you create new memories in this special place.
