The Sherman Street Event Center (formerly known as the Mosque of the El Jebel Shrine, the Rocky Mountain Consistory, and the Scottish Rite Temple - the latter despite the fact that it never served as a Scottish Rite meeting hall) is a historic building in the North Capitol Hill neighborhood of downtown Denver.
The Moorish inspired building was constructed in 1907, as a meeting hall for the El Jabel chapter of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (the Shriners). It has never been a true mosque in the Islamic sense. In 1924, having outgrown the building, the Shriners sold it to the Scottish Rite Masons, who renamed it. In 1995, the Scottish Rite sold the building to Eulipions, Inc. who converted it into a catering and events facility.
