ABOUT IVYWILD SCHOOL:

Ivywild School is a place where neighbors, friends, colleagues and visitors can meet and mingle. A place where you can enjoy great local fare and share ideas. But it’s also much more than that. It’s a flourishing communal atmosphere linking commerce and community with gathering spaces, local cuisine, education, art and gardens. Formerly an elementary school, Ivywild’s façade still holds true to its roots as reimagined spaces fill the halls once again with the voices of children and adults alike.



A virtual and literal hotspot of activity throughout the day, Ivywild is always full of energy. Whether it’s bakers baking fresh bread and pastries in the morning, friends meeting for coffee or craft-brewed beer over lunch, gardeners harvesting the fruits of the season, or people gathering for a small concert or film in the former gym, the school provides an inviting space for kids of all ages. Wide hallways afford plenty of space for relaxing or viewing the ever-changing art offerings. Multiple patios provide al fresco seating in the building’s beautiful Rocky Mountain setting. And a highly-walkable “public square” will host farmer’s markets, festivals, and other special events.



So whether you just want to pick up your morning joe and a freshly baked bagel, linger for lunch and an afternoon cocktail, or grab local produce and some meat for dinner, Ivywild School will be a hub for meeting, eating, drinking and neighboring.

IVYWILD MUSIC:

Have you heard the halls of Ivywild are alive with the sounds of music? It’s true! Ivywild Music is hard at work creating a consistent and astounding venue to enjoy live music at Ivywild School. Featuring up and comers, new kids on the 719 block, old favorites and local artists, the Colorado Springs community will definitely be exposed to an array of wonderful sounds. Check back often to see who’s playing.

  • Nice little surprise. We dropped by because we wanted to see the old architecture and were thrilled to be able to catch a mid-day meal. Lots of options for everyone in our party. Not something...

  • There is something for everyone here and the vibe is so fun! Just cool to walk around and see the history of the building and choices the vendors have made to keeping the history alive. A not miss!

  • Amazing atmosphere. Lots of things to look at and enjoy. Food is amazing. I really loved the ease of having different restaurants so close to each other so the kids were able to select what they wanted and all were amazing. The beef empanadas are probably my new favorite food. We will absolutely be back the next time we are in the springs.
  • Ivywild School is one of the most fun food and drink environments in Colorado Springs. Whether you're visiting the Principal's Office for a unique mixed drink, in the gym for one of their many sold-out events, or enjoying the original painting while visiting the bathroom. Definitely a go-to for taking out of town guests for a huge variety of food and drinks all in one building. They also have a fun selection of non-alcoholic cocktails and coffees at the Principal's Office.
