Thank you for considering the Sow’s Ear for your special event – be it an intimate wedding, family reunion, or company party.

Couples love to host their receptions at the Sow’s Ear.  Guests love to be hosted. With dramatic views of the Needles Mountains, Twilight Peaks, Engineer Mountain, and the Hermosa Cliffs, the views are as spectacular as the food is delicious. Our airy yet intimate dining room features a split-level allowing for separate gathering spaces for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. Oversized tables and chairs, massive candlesticks, heavy flatware and gourmet wine glasses lend a feeling of substance and elegance to your celebration. Many brides don’t even feel the need to decorate, while others enjoy selecting flowers to complement the natural tones that predominate.

The Sow’s Ear is perfect for weddings of 50-124 people, with the benefit of being within a lodge able to house the wedding party right on premises. Chef Ben Kein guide your  menu choices to create the perfect event. We offer multi-course dinner service and have prepared custom wedding menus catering to your specific taste and budget.

With the Sow’s Ear being located within minutes from many unbelievably beautiful outdoor wedding sites, and its location within the Silverpick Lodge, it’s no wonder the national wedding magazine The Knot voted us “the best place for a wedding reception” in Colorado.
