The Fort

The Fort’s nine dining rooms are built around a central courtyard.  In summer months a typical Plains Indian tipi stands in the courtyard.

Bent’s Quarters, a private dining room, recreates much of the feel of the 1840s. The St. Vrain Bar, on the west side of the courtyard, is named for Ceran St. Vrain, partner of the Bents. The St. Vrain Council Room angles off the St. Vrain bar and accommodates private parties and music evenings. Adjoining the Tower Room is the East Terrace, from which can be seen the magnificent panorama of red rocks and Pike’s Peak to the south and Denver and its suburbs to the east. The Main Dining Room, with its fireplace and view of the foothills and lights of Denver and the plains beyond, features a beamed ceiling, artwork, and authentic mid-nineteenth-century artifacts.  Throughout the building, the vigas (log beam) were stripped by drawknife, and zapatas (footed supports) were rough cut and then finished with a foot adz.  All wood surfaces were hand-planed to remove machine saw marks.
