Grand Junction, CO (June 30, 2021) — Led by Outdoor Industry stalwart and visionary Jen Taylor, El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost will be a playground for families and adults, combining amazing food and world class outdoor recreation access with lodging and local history for an experience like no other.
El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost, is a destination with purpose: a mission-fueled, woman-led, and result of public/private partnership in Grand Junction, CO promises eclectic lodging with private-label tequila and the best fish tacos on earth, all within steps of world-class mountain biking and the Colorado River.
As part of her personal mission, Jen Taylor wants to extend the stoke to everyone. “An outdoor industry colleague said it best: ‘when a world-class community builds world-class amenities, world-class people will visit’… to celebrate and contribute to the collective vibe. This is Third Place Theory at its finest; I want every person to know they belong, and feel they have ownership in El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost. That’s what we’re hoping to establish with the Kicktarter campaign. Getting in on the guerilla/grassroots level by contributing, spreading the word, and/or renting the place out for your own special evening… there are many ways to help achieve the timeline of a grand opening in April, 2022!”
Celebrating Grand Junction’s special local history and people, El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost is the first to activate a reclaimed former SuperFund site. Offering 71 hip, eclectic lodging units of varying vintage to modern designs, a full service cantina and bar featuring private label tequila and the best fish tacos on earth, the development offers immediate access to the Colorado River and Colorado National Monument. Designed in conjunction with passionate private sector, local government, purpose led developers and with the direct input of long-time community leaders, the project is designed to complement the natural beauty and character of Grand Junction, its history and its people.
