When we get back to booking events.... this area rents for a rental fee and a beverage minimum on a hosted tab. Please inquire for pricing!

When you're ready to book... We require the rental fee as a deposit to save the date. Your beverages and food will be paid the night of the event!

Our beverage minimums are a required spend on one hosted tab. All drinks are charged on consumption.

This will be one central tab. You can split payments between different credit cards.

We provide your host with tickets or wristbands that you will pass out to your guests. You get to decide what people can order with those tickets or wristbans.

Most groups choose to keep their tickets or wristbands open to any of our standard menu items (beer, wine, wells, and standard cocktails). 

You have the option of including or excluding  top shelf spirits, or limiting to beer and wine only.

Tax is included in the beverage cost.
20% gratuity is added to all hosted tabs.

If you do not meet your beverage minimum, the unmet amount will be added as a rental fee to your bill.
is charged on the full minimum (or full tab).

For our day-to-day operations, we work with rotating food trucks. We have between one and four food trucks every single day! This schedule typically releases two months in advance. 

We have a permanent food truck, Kings County Kitchen, who provides all of our catering.. They set everything up and break everything down for you. Please visit their website for details.

You can use wristbands or tickets to host your guests at the food trucks on-site during your event. The food trucks would keep track of what your group orders. With this option, you can expect an average of $12-$15 per person, plus gratuity. Under this circumstance, we share your credit card authorization with the trucks and each one will charge your card at the end of the night.

Lexie - Events Manager

Lexie loves engaging the Denver community by bringing events to Improper City. Off the clock, you'll find her re-charging with a novel on her front porch or by visiting Denver's great bars, restaurants and coffee shops.

Giovanni - Assistant GM

Father to two cats, Gremlin & Gizmo, Giovanni is a thrill-seeking, adventure junkie who spends most mornings out searching for fresh powder in the backcountry before his shifts. His mad scientist tendencies have led to a pursuit of everything alcohol and food, lending to 10+ years in the service industry on top of a BFA in Graphic Design.

Louise - Operations Manager

Louise is a hospitality industry lifer. After years of working in catering and events, she developed a huge appreciation for food. (which is why scheduling all of Improper City's food trucks has come naturally to her) Don't be surprised to find one of the Improper City TVs tuned into the Oklahoma State Football game on a Saturday as she cheers on her Cowboys. Don't ask her to choose between good beer, dry wine, or great whisk(e)y, because she won't be able to! According to her favorite coffee mug, she is the "Worlds Best Aunt," and she takes this title seriously! If she isn't at Improper City, she is probably driving west for a weekend away in the mountains.
