Things to remember

  • Spirit/purpose: Your event must maintain the spirit of #DEN itself: diverse, focused on the mission of promoting the city's business, hospitality, and arts communities by uniting friends and strangers alike from diverse backgrounds for a night of elegance, great food, music, dancing and communion at our unique events.

  • Co-branding: We do not allow co-branding -- either connecting the #DEN logo/identity/name to the name of another organization, non-profit, corporation or other or presenting your #DEN event as being organized by such entities.

  • Location: #DEN allocates one location-based license series per applicant; you must live in the city for which you are applying for a license. Your #DEN event must happen in the city for which you received the license. #DEN events do not travel -- a #DEN license is valid for one city, and for one event.


  • Co-events: #DEN events are stand-alone events -- they may not be combined with or integrated into any pre-existing conference or event.


Standard event

This is the basic event type. It is open to the public and subject to all of the standard rules and applies to most events. Learn more


University event

Holding your event for your university? This event type is for those hosted at a college or university and organized by current university administration staff, faculty or students. Learn more


Community-Specific event

A community-specific event is a #DEN event catering you any sub-community (i.e. women, LGBT) where community-based issues are at the core of the event. This event may also be organized around the official annual community-focused conference (LGBT Pride, woman conferences, etc). Learn more

Internal event

This is for corporate/business, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and hospitals that want to organize an event under an institutional or organizational name. This event type and the naming exception it grants is approved only for internal, private, employees/supporter-only events. These events provide the framework for businesses to build employee morale & encourage a work-life balance through private, staff-only events built on #DEN's winning formula of unique dining experiences.  Learn more

Salon event

This is a small weekly or monthly event that keeps a #DEN community engaged between regularly scheduled #DEN events. In order to organize a Salon event, applicants must already have an existing standard license. Learn more
