Colorado Springs Provides Picturesque Escape for LGBTQ Travelers

“The Mining Exchange Hotel in Downtown Colorado Springs was originally established in 1902 as a stock exchange for precious gold and silver, and soon became a bustling hub for mining magnates and investors. After the hotel’s recent remodel, it’s just as vibrant and full of even more exciting offerings! BLK MGK, the hotel’s full-service coffee bar is now open, with a full menu of breakfast and lunch items, a range of specialty coffee and tea beverages, along with coffee-based cocktails, wine and beer. The decadent lobby bar, Golden Hour, will open in late spring and will feature live jazz music on Thursday evenings. A new restaurant concept, Oro, will open later this summer/fall along with the refreshed spa. Additional hotel programming includes The Vault, an on-site art gallery that will feature rotating art shows in partnership with Auric Gallery and BLK MGK’s rotating schedule of aura and astrology readings, artistic events and coffee tastings.”
