Skiptown, a membership-based destination for dogs and their owners, announced Thursday that it will open its first Denver location at 3833 Steele St. in late summer. Spanning a 50,000-square-foot facility in the River North District’s York Street Yards, the space will feature an off-leash dog park, bar and comprehensive pet care services.

“We created Skiptown because it’s the experience we wanted with our own dogs,” said Meggie Williams, Skiptown’s founder and CEO. “We were always looking for a modern, one-stop shop where we could enjoy ourselves while our dogs play, or where we could drop them off, knowing they are with people who love them as much as we do.”

Denver’s Skiptown location will feature an indoor/outdoor off-leash park and beer garden with shaded areas, over 27,000 square feet of indoor and turfed outdoor spaces and a splash pad. While dogs play and make friends, their parents will be able to enjoy a variety of bar offerings including local beers, craft cocktails, wines and coffee from local roasters. Skiptown will also provide daycare and overnight boarding facilities with padded flooring, a top-tier dog grooming salon and a training studio. Additionally, Skiptown will offer valet daycare drop-off and 24-hour supervised care.

Through the Skiptown app, clients will book appointments, upload vet records, view visit reports and customize their dog’s routine and preferences. Every visitor will input their dog’s information into the app before enjoying Skiptown’s facilities. They can then choose from a handful of membership options, from a free basic membership that offers access to the bar and park with a purchased day pass and pet care services, to VIP status, which offers a host of benefits including unlimited bar and park entry, guest passes and discounted grooming, training, access to member-only events and pet care packages.

To celebrate Denver’s opening, Skiptown is offering a limited number of discounted VIP and founding memberships online. Throughout June, VIP memberships are available at a 30% discount, with the discount decreasing by 10% each subsequent month until the opening. Founding members will also have their dog’s portrait featured in a permanent mural within the facility.

Skiptown’s flagship location opened in Charlotte, N.C. in 2020 and is now expanding nationally. Follow along with Skiptown Denver’s progress on its Instagram page, @skiptown.denver, or online at skiptown.io/denver-co.
