Nativ Hotel Group would like to set the record straight about our policies and procedures due to press received such as the WestWord article of May 26th, 2015 ( Richmond Meyer, Co-Founder of Nativ Hotel Group states Nativ's official policy "We do not condone or permit the usage of Marijuana, any other drugs or illegal activity in any of our establishments."


Nativ Hotel does not permit guests to consume drugs or engage in unlawful activity of any kind on hotel premises, which include the bar, restaurant, club, hotel rooms or any common areas serving the hotel. Management cannot permit or condone any guest conduct, which violates Colorado state or any federal law, including but not limited to the use or consumption of Marijuana in any form. Our staff and hosts are required by management to confront or report any illegal conduct. Any guest suspected of engaging in unlawful conduct will be escorted from the Hotel premises immediately.

The 16,000+ square foot, five-level property, introduces state-of-the-art technology and features an eclectic variety of imported furniture and custom artwork...from all over the world.

With an emphasis on creative design elements such as hand-painted wall murals by Alessandro Etrusco, innovative technology features, and top notch service; the foundation of NATIV Hotel evokes an experience that combine comfort and class. "NATIV to me represents culture, art, music, freedom and most importantly, outside the box thinking. That’s what makes this place so special and unique. You will see, hear, feel, and taste something different than you ever have before," says Francisco Lozano, resident DJ of NATIV…whose background and experience stems from his hometown of Brooklyn, NY.

Guests can anticipate a guest performance by internationally acclaimed DJ, Norman Doray, aerial bar tending performances, complimentary NATIV cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres from Celebrity Chef Aaron May.

Aaron May, the ubiquitous Chef & Partner of Pourtions, has landed numerous culinary achievements and awards as well as features in national publications and television programs such as Food Network, USA Today, Conde Naste Traveler, Food & Wine, and more. "I couldn't be more excited about this project. The whole thing from top to bottom is so different than anything else. There is a synthesis of industrial and hand-made, modern, and timelessness to create a food program to compliment everything else going on in this amazing space, which is really special to me. I think the menus reflect that eclectic pursuit of doing something for a specific time and place rather than following trends or fads. That's the NATIV way".
