The Concoctory is a Colorado non-profit. We are a unique blend of hackerspace, workshops and retail. The Concoctory is a creative and social hub for hackers, makers, crafters, artists, budding electronics enthusiasts, the simply curious, and everyone in between.

We have 2 floors of space. Our upstairs is home to a retail shop filled with DIY kits and locally crafted items, a public workshop and cafe style meeting space. Our member only areas consist of kitchen and equipped workshop and lounge downstairs.

Coffee, drinks, snacks and consumables are available on a pay-what-you-can basis, and the WiFi is free.

Check our website[1] or meetup page[2] for a current workshop & event schedule.

Our space is located on South Broadway near Evans, surrounded by creative local shops and tasty eats. We're just south of downtown on the 0 RTD line, a few short blocks from the Evans light rail station, and biking distance to DU campus.

We <3 DIY! Do-It-Yourself is not just fixing a leaky pipe or a wobbly table. DIY is repurposing an old t-shirt, planting a vegetable garden, or learning to solder a loose wire. It’s pushing those skills further through art, and finding a creative outlet in the mundane. It’s taking back the things we own; either by taking them apart, making them better, or finding a new use the manufacturer never thought of. It’s the tipping point that leads to questioning every facet of the world we live in. DIY is an ethic. The Concoctory aims to inspire and nurture that ethic in the local community.

The Concoctory is open to members 24/7 Open House Hack Night is every Monday evening at 7pm

Creativity Shoppe (retail/public hours) Tues, Weds, Thurs: 11am - 7pm Fri & Sat: 11am - 8pm Closed Sundays
