We cannot say enough good things about this venue and the staff! I was an incredibly unorganized bride, and Sara was so patient and helpful each step of the way. She was super responsive and helped think of so many little things to make day-of operations go more smoothly for my husband and I. We really felt like the staff did an incredible job working the event, and kept us and the immediate family very well taken care of. They made plates of food for us to make sure we got to eat, set aside a small two-person table with champagne and appetizers for a post-ceremony pre-reception quite minute, and had our drink orders down so well that I don't think either of us personally visited the bar. The venue was perfect for our late afternoon - evening ceremony and reception; we absolutely loved the string lights on the balcony and the fire pit was a nice touch as well. We got a ton of compliments from our guests on the space; the red brick and open lighting really does wonders.

I cannot say enough great things about The Riverside and all of it's staff! I was part of a group that recently held a charity event there and it is an incredible venue in the middle of Boulder with a huge patio overhanging the creek. The layout was perfect as far as space for dancing, a bar, eating and tables. The staff was so attentive and nice. Truly made the night so much more enjoyable! Sound and lighting was great! Parking was easy. This venue is awesome and I would recommend it to groups of all sizes!!

We absolutely loved having our wedding at Agora. The venue itself is unique and beautiful, with several different rooms within and a huge outdoor patio overlooking Boulder Creek. The staff are amazing, accommodating, responsive, and knowledgeable. We worked with Sara from day one until our wedding (and even after!) who is simply the best. We always felt that we could trust her knowledge, opinions, and professionalism. She really helped guide us through the whole process. Another perk of this venue is that they basically coordinate food, alcohol, and rentals, and work closely with the musicians of your choice to really streamline the process. This took a huge amount of work off of our plate and was seamless.

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!!
