We are a 14,000 sq ft space in Old Town Fort Collins. We have an art gallery / music venue / bar in one building. We are a unique space seconds away from New Belgium, great dining, nightlife, & sightseeing. (We are above a music venue, it can be loud) This room shares a bathroom with our bunk room.
We are one of the only rentals in the country that exists in a professional artist's workspace. Our building houses visual artists, photographers, a recording studio, an art gallery, and a second floor deck.
Our mission is to bring travelers into our world; where art, music, and collaboration are the every day focus and the betterment of community and self are daily goals.
DISCLAIMER: We just opened a cafe / music venue below our rooms. Music will go late! Especially Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please check out events before you book! (URL HIDDEN)
The apartment includes a brand-new, separate shared full bathroom, kitchenette, new bed, and seating with views of Old Town. Outside of the apartment, guests are welcome in all spaces besides private studios that are rented by working artists. This includes the full kitchen, spacious deck, and large gallery.
Interaction with guests
Our staff will be as attentive or hands-off as the renters would like us to be.
Other things to note
This room shares a bathroom down the hall with our bunk room. It should be noted that, because we are an art /music association, there is likely to be noise in the apartment. This could music from our venue under the rooms, events in our gallery or people in their studios.
We expect our guests to be respectful to the space (no breaking furniture, smoking inside, loud parties) and to be very mindful of the works of art hanging in the gallery and hallways.
NOTE: We are located above a music venue in Old Town so when there are shows happening, there is noise bleed.
We are a team of individuals who believe that creativity is a core part of life. The Downtown Artery provides a venue for artists of all genres to create, showcase, and celebrate their work. It is a community of talented individuals which promotes innovative collaboration and fosters artistic expression. We have converted three studios into sleeper rooms for touring musicians, artists, and just all around good people in hopes of inviting them into our world. We enjoy appreciating art, making art, watching movies, making moves, eating food, making food, listening to music, making music, reading books, writing books... I think you get the drift. Most of us have couch surfed and traveled around the world and aim to provide a creative, safe, and unique environment for folks to stay.
