Tim Chladek has called Colorado home most of his life, growing up in Littleton, Colorado. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and upon graduating immediately pursued a career in web development, working initially for the Chicago Tribune. He launched his first internet company, DenverMix.com, in 2002 and saw it grow into six markets before selling it in 2007. In addition to providing information on happening in and around town, DenvermIx.com had a very successful nightclub events division – creating and executing large events throughout the Denver area. He moved to Aspen, Colorado in the fall of 2007 and opened a nightclub named The Regal Watering Hole in the heart of town. The Regal was a popular locals dance club for several years before Tim and his partner sold the business in 2013. That same year he relaunched the famed downtown Denver hotspot Tryst Lounge in a new location and continued to own and operate it until the spring of 2019. Initially consulting the 7908 team through the launch, Tim is excited to have joined the team on a full-time basis as the Lounge Manager.
