Dubuque is More Than a Great Meeting Space

There is always more to a community than just what one sees in its unique meeting spaces. From the history in its buildings to the stories that are told at local establishments, it’s the people in the community that make the experience meeting attendees have, one that is memorable.

Al Capone. He was a famous “mobster” and has ties all over the country, and Dubuque has not been left off of that list. It is rumored that Capone once owned the historic Hotel Julien Dubuque. Today this hotel still stands tall and proud in downtown. Its elegant finishings, reminiscent of the early 1900s, onsite spa, restaurant and lounge, and detailed hotel room rooms, are what makes the hotel stand out. And Capone is still remembered here, with a beautiful suite named after him.

For all those who enjoy art in a big way, Dubuque’s murals are creating colors and lots of conversation on their historic buildings. From the Ada Hayden mural, which celebrates the life of Iowa’s first female botanist to the SOLIDARITY mural and 40 plus others throughout the community, our visitors enjoy these detailed works of art. And no matter where you gather in Dubuque, murals are just steps or minutes away.

And talk about locations for unwinding at the end of the day of meetings. Dubuque has so many options for your group to tap their toe to the beat of the drum at one of our concert venues, relax in a locally owned coffee shop, and grab a table on a rooftop to enjoy Iowa’s oldest city and its view.

Or take the group out on the Mississippi River aboard a local yacht for a happy hour cruise or beautiful sunset dinner cruise.
