On April 9, 2024, the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce hosted its Business After Hours at The Hangar Club in Lowry. Eighty guests attended making this the most well attended Chamber event since the VIP Fireworks party in Glendale. “There is real momentum with our Chamber right now,” said Jeff Allen, Chief Operating Officer for the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce. “The turnout was tremendous and we had plenty of new faces attend which makes for a lively event. Our Chamber offers great networking and a lot of fun along the way.”

The event was supported by Launch Pad Brewery and Mile High Spirits. Launch Pad donated their amazing beers for members to sample, and Mile High Spirits donated vodka, tequila, and bourbon. The Hangar Club’s mixologist was on hand making quality drinks for the members.

This event was fun as the members were treated to a peek inside one of Denver’s newest indoor golf simulator venues. The Hangar Club opened four months ago and is thriving in a fiercely competitive market. There are over 30 indoor facilities in Colorado and The Hangar Club hopes to be a step above the competition with its 22,000 square foot venue. They boast an ­elevated food menu, 36 televisions, a full bar, 10 large bays to practice golf, and state of the art technology.

Three of those bays were reserved for Chamber members to enjoy unlimited golf for two hours. Many complimented the facility and some even booked tee times for the future while there. James Love and Daren Schmidt, two of the founding partners, were on hand to answer any questions and to interact with members. Schmidt also addressed the capacity crowd and spoke a little about the club.

t together the best experience in Colorado and hopefully the Western United States as far as indoor golf is con­cerned,” said Daren Schmidt, Founding Partner of The Hangar Club. “We wanted to give people the best possible experience inside of this building and we feel like we are doing it.”

Schmidt and other investors, including James Love, who played professionally for 13 years, bought the property in June 2023 and spent $3.3 million to renovate it. The hangar was originally built in 1942 and features vast amounts of natural light and open space due to its eight expansive steel beams and large windows used in the building’s original construction.

Schmidt and the other investors are proud to be part of the fabric of the Lowry community. “We created a number of fillers we wanted associated with this given that we own the real estate,” said Schmidt. “We are proud owners in the Lowry neighborhood. Community is number one and the beauty of the Lowry area is it is surrounded by other neighborhoods such as Cherry Creek and Mayfair. We wanted this to be a space where families could come, where avid golfers could come, and ultimately anybody and everybody who has either never played golf before or wants to be exposed to it, or the avid golfer to work on their game.”

The Hangar Club is located adjacent to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum at 7600 E. 1st Place in Denver. The club’s entrance is on the east side of the building. Surface and covered parking are both available.

The Hangar Club opens at 6 a.m. for members, and to the public at 11 a.m. and closes at 11 p.m. each day. During the week, a guest can reserve a bay for $45 per hour from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eight people can fit in each bay. Visit for more information.
