Our blogger social at the Iconic Teller Bar was a blast to say the least. With a gorgeous setting, live music, and delicious bites, it was the perfect place for us to take a late summer break and reconnect.
The Teller Bar is located in the lobby of the Renaissance Denver — the same spot where our Galentine's Day Collab was hosted — and its absolutely stunning. The building once was the Colorado National Bank, and with gorgeous columns and beautiful original artwork. It was seriously such a fun setting for our social since we were surrounded by perfect places to snap some pics.
We were seated at a large table just outside the Range restaurant which was the perfect spot to settle in and enjoy some amazing sips and snacks. We've been loving these sit-down happy hours lately — where we can get comfy and enjoy great conversation. Watching new friendships being made and everyone sharing tips and tricks for both life and blogging is the best part of our get togethers.
We had a few new faces at the event, which was so amazing to get to connect with some more Denver influencers in person! I'm always so honored to see how welcoming our community is. We truly believe in #CommunityOverCompetition, but it's seriously amazing to see it in action.
We always hear girls saying they were so nervous to come because they didn't know anyone, but were made to feel right at home and included once they arrived at the event. We seriously have such an amazing group of girls who are so genuine and we couldn't ask for a better community.
One of the cocktail favorites was the Colorado Fizz, which was super delicious. The menu was amazing, see below for a peak into what we enjoyed.
