Gatsby’s World Comes to Denver this Summer at The Cottonwood Club

The event features Nationally acclaimed flapper tap troupe, live DJ fusion music,

and circus acts inspired by the 1920s

DENVER (June 5, 2019) – Give 5 Productions announces a series of events that will transport guests to an era of impeccable dress, flowing libations and laissez-faire attitudes featuring live music, engaging entertainment and a call to dress in your most dapper threads and sparkly frocks, channeling a modern version of the 1920s. Step inside the newly renovated Ironworks building in downtown Denver and be invited to the The Cottonwood Club for roaring ‘20s Gatsby-style events on Fridays June 21 and July 26, with additional dates to be announced. Guests will have a selection of craft cocktails and beer at their fingertips while enjoying entertainment from one-of-a-kind nationally touring acts The Honey Taps, Phantom Circus and Black Iris Collective.

“The Cottonwood Club is going to break all molds,”said Julia Tobey, Give 5 Productions founder and producer. “We can’t wait to immerse our guests into another world by gathering an amazing group of unique performers from right here in Colorado and around the country. Ironworks was literally built for this. Their competent staff are going to wow everyone with custom craft cocktails and impeccable service.”

The Cottonwood Club will introduce The Honey Taps to Denver. The female flapper-inspired tap troupe regularly performs in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The performers go all out harkening a bygone era with a nostalgic wink to flappers of the 1920s and bubbly chorus girls of the swinging 1930s and 1940s. The Honey Taps have appeared nationally and internationally at iconic venues including Carnegie Hall, The Rainbow Room, Lincoln Center, The Plaza Hotel, JFK Library, The Queen Mary, USS Midway and Palais Royale. They have performed in productions including Broadway and National Tours of “42nd Street,” “Anything Goes,” “Hamilton,” “The Producers,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Spamalot”, “White Christmas” and “The Radio City Rockettes.” 

Taking the party to another level, literally, Phantom Circus will welcome guests dangling from a giant chandelier and delight guests with traditional as well as modern circus acts. The Denver-based professional super troupe sells out shows across the state, showcasing circus talents including aerialists, acrobats, hoopers, hand-balancers, fire throwers and belly dancers.

The Black Iris Collective, a female led DJ fusion band, will provide the captivating soundtrack to the evening. Inspired by contemporary electro swing artists like Caravan Palace, Caro Emerald and Earl, and the reinvention of Today’s Top 40 by Postmodern Jukebox; this band brings together the unique tight knit harmony of three female vocalists with the high energy of acclaimed emcee and rapper Myke Charles, DJ Tasos Hernandez and killer musicians. The talented artists will keep guests dancing and entertained all night long.

Built in 1903 with additions in the 1930s, and re-opened with a complete overhaul renovation in 2018, the Ironworks building at 25 Larimer Street in downtown Denver is the perfect setting for this spirited Gatsby-inspired affair with design elements of early industrial, 1920s glamour, art deco and depression era in the architecture, design and décor of the building.

The soirée starts with cocktails, music and dancing at 7 p.m. with featured acts starting at 8 p.m. and continuing until midnight. Tickets can be purchased at starting at $35 including admission and one drink. This event is limited to guests 21 and over.
