ABOUT the owner
About eight years ago, Scott Nagely, a board-certified emergency doctor, recognized the potential of the historical Varone Market building as an event venue. Located in Denver's popular Lower Highlands (LoHi) neighborhood this space offers a historical touch met with the trendiness of the area. After years of creative thought and renovation, this space now offers a catering kitchen, stylish bathrooms, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and the addition of entertainment space with skylights, glass garage doors, and patio space. This old historic building now has new life!
The Varone Market Venue building was built in 1912 by John Varone who ran an Italian grocery store in the Denver Highlands. John, his wife Elizabeth, and their family lived on the second floor of the building in the predominately Italian neighborhood. The adjacent carriage house kept the horses and buggies and after 100+ years, the smell of horses still emanated from the floorboards. Poultry was butchered in the garden adjacent to the building and was sold fresh in the market. The Carbone Italian Bakery was located across the street and Mr. Carbone sponsored John's immigration to the USA. After establishing himself in Colorado, John moved his family from Italy to Denver. The Varone Market building fell into severe disrepair in the 1980s. in 2014, Scott Nagely purchased the building as a creative outlet and investment. With extensive improvements in the foundation, new plumbing, lighting, and removal of paint from the original brick, the Varone Market building is once again an asset to the community!
