Our Lodge

Chartered in 1882 as the 17th Elks Lodge in the organization. Our Lodge now resides in its second home currently located at 2475 W 26th Avenue, CO 80211.

Denver #17 is known as the Mother Lodge of the Rockies.

The Lodge was moved to land purchased in 1973, previously the local granary. The original Lodge location was a stone building on 17th Street in downtown Denver built in 1911. Much of the original stained glass and chandeliers adorn the new location in Northwest Denver. The Lodge clubroom bar also known as The Jolly Corks Bar boasts one of the best views of the downtown Denver skyline.

Denver 17 welcomes visitors both Elks and the public to view our history and enjoy our magnificent view. We are also home to the famous Buffalo Bill Table located in our main floor conference room.

Originality, and together we make Denver Elks 17
