We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Agora on the Riverside in Boulder in September, and it was amazing! We really loved the this place; it's brick interior, hardwood floors, the stunning window for the ceremony area, the backroom overlooking the creek, the bar area with the penny wall and to top it off the great patio over the creek. This place doesn't need any decor, with the string lighting and minimal flowers it was stunning. We had so many guests tell us they were just blown away by this hidden gem of a venue and they loved the patio area. Sarah was so helpful in the planning process with us as well. She was always warm, welcoming, and quick to respond when questions came up. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a downtown Boulder wedding with a great feel, and very friendly and accommodating staff.

Beautiful, warm, charming, and perfect on every level! Working with Sara and our wedding planner, Alaina, (Root & Gathering) have this down to a brilliant science. Our daughter's wedding couldn't have been more flawless.

Agora at The Riverside provides fantastic support and help during the planning process. The entire staff on the day of the wedding worked very hard to make every part of it special. Everyone was friendly, helpful, kind, and fun! We had two live bands play our reception at Agora for our Live Wedding Music Festival. Agora worked diligently and professionally to ensure the needs of the bands were met and maintained great communication with everyone throughout the party. It really was the best day of our lives and everything about the venue was perfect for the live music show we hosted as our reception. The atmosphere is fun, relaxing, and has tons of space! Big thanks to Sara who was our host for the evening and for the music show and made the whole process so relaxed and enjoyable, she ensured everything we wanted was perfect and ready to go. She ensured everything ran smoothly and did an amazing job – she was a complete star. Many of our guests commented on Agora as a great venue for a wedding music show and a wedding party. Everyone worked very hard to set up the event and organize everything for us. The different rooms of the venue looked fantastic and everyone commented on the venue, the food and the way in which we were all looked after. I cannot thank Agora enough for everything they did for us to ensure it all went smoothly.

The Riverside (through Agora events) was the perfect place to hold our 1930's hollywood glamour winter wedding. The venue is gorgeous, with tons of historical atmosphere and just a great "feel". We had access to the entire first floor...both the café and the great room, as well as the back room, so our guests had plenty of room to mingle, eat, and dance. Everyone loved it, and many people said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had been to. Our wedding photos were so awesome too...we even had a few taken on the roof with the lights of Boulder and the mountains in the background. Magical. Sara Stillings, the venue coordinator, ROCKS. She was super responsive, and handled all the details so I didn't have to worry about anything. She worked closely with our month-of coordinator (Alaina Johnson at root + gather events) to make sure all of the little details were exactly right. Sara even allowed us to use the space to rehearse our first dance before the wedding. She was just wonderful. One of the best things about Agora (besides the atmosphere and Sara) is that it's sort of all-inclusive. They work with a specific caterer (Spice of Life...awesome!), and they handle their own bar setup and all the equipment rentals. So it was very, very easy to plan our wedding at the Riverside. Do yourself a favor and schedule a walk-through. You'll be so glad you did.

We held our wedding reception at Agora last week and it was absolutely perfect. We live in Boulder and many of our friends couldn't believe this spot right in downtown. The patio was great, so beautiful with the creek and the string lights at night, and provided the perfect place for our friends to gather and celebrate. The inside space was also great, good dance space, an inside bar, a separate room for the photo booth and plenty of space for three food stations. If you want a unique space for your reception, this is it. The room and patio are so beautiful on their own we barely did any decor and it came out lovely. Plus working with their contact person was a pleasure, they're very accommodating and offered great suggestions when we needed a professional opinion. Highly recommend!

We had our reception at this location. from the day we went to visit, the staff was very helpful. We wanted to use the outdoor patio and my fiance asked questions about the possibility of having a ramp to allow guests with wheelchairs to get outside. We spoke directly to the owner who helped with the planning so that we could have the ramp available. In the time leading up to the reception, the Agora staff was very responsive to emails--especially in the week beforehand, when I probably contacted our event manager on a daily basis. When we arrived to the actual reception, I was blown away by how beautiful everything looked. Service throughout the evening was excellent and everyone was eager to help us have an awesome night.

We held our wedding reception at Agora at the Riverside, and could not have been happier with it! The building is beautiful and unique with exposed brick, wood floors and a bar covered with pennies. The creek side patio is beautiful as well and provides great space for guests to mingle. It was a great indoor/outdoor feel. The only downside is the lack of parking, but as long as you let your guests know in advance it is not a problem. Sara is the coordinator and she was AMAZING. Very responsive and helpful with all of our questions and requests, and she made sure the day went smoothly. She was very flexible with our ever changing plans and we are very thankful for her. We were able to use any decor and completely design the space how we wanted. The caterer they use, A Spice of Life, was fantastic! They can make your menu absolutely anything you want and the food was great. Many of our guests commented on how neat the space was, and really enjoyed the different areas of the venue (bar, main room, patio) and how they all flowed together. Thank you Sara and Agora/the Riverside!!

Agora is a one of the best venues in Boulder. Just a block away from Boulder's historic Pearl street and a creek away from Central Park. Agora has a clean industrial interior with big windows, as well as a patio located right on the water. Aside from the building, the people at Agora are very friendly and helpful. Sara, in particular, did a fantastic job helping us plan and coordinate our small wedding and reception. I highly recommend Agora for any event.

We wish we could have separated out the QoS rating to day of wedding and prior to wedding. The service on the day of wedding was excellent. Prior to the wedding there was confusion on overall cost (either due to our lack of understanding or it not being completely clear). Complicating the manner was the uncertainty of how many guests would be at the reception. Either way I think the information could have been more clear up front in the process. Other than this one issue, things went very well and I would still recommend Agora as a location for a wedding reception. Many guests commented on how nice a venue Agora was for a wedding of our size ... appr 75 people. The outside patio was a perfect spot for gathering on a beautiful summer night. Our event coordinator, Sara, did an excellent job! The food was provided by Spice of Life and that went very smoothly day of wedding and the food was excellent ... it was set up for a buffet. We bought three non-traditional wedding cakes from Whole Foods. All guests loved the cakes and the idea of having the non-traditional cakes.
