In 1929, F.H. Strong constructed a building that became known as Colorado Steam Laundry, a successful laundry service which remained in business until the late 1960s. After many years of inactivity, the historic building was brought back to life with renovation and restoration in 2014 by current owners Robert and Cherry Hoback. The Colorado Steam Laundry became The Copper Press, a historical building for the special events in your life.

I wish more than anything that I could go back to this place and replay my wedding over every single day. It is absolutely beautiful and could not have been a better venue for our personalities. It鈥檚 a blank canvas, but it doesn鈥檛 need hardly anything because it鈥檚 just beautiful in its natural state with a lot of the original walls & brick. Cherry was amazing to work with! Answered every single one of my questions extremely fast & was very helpful. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was!

We had many issues such as dirty dishes, dirty chairs, not enough silverware, and old tea glasses.The kitchen was a mess! I try to let Cherry know what was going on. She didn鈥檛 want to take care of it then. She told me that she couldn鈥檛 do nothing about it. She did send me a check of 25.00 after the wedding for the trouble we had. I was disappointed. We rented the place out Friday to set up and rehearsal. Instead we had to wash ALL the dishes, clean the chairs, and buy plastic silverware and plastic cups. We put the dishes in the dishwasher and hand washed them. About 70 tea glasses were old, cloudy looking. Nobody wants to drink out of those. Overall the venue is beautiful and perfect for a small party.

This venue is incredibly beautiful. From the bridal suite to the ceremony space and even the outside of the building, everything is stunning. The venue also photographs very beautifully, I am looking forward to the next wedding I get to photograph at the Copper Press!
