Iowa City, IA Hospitality & Tourism / Executive & Management
Vue Rooftop Restaurant is located on the 12th floor of the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. Vue Rooftop is known as an upscale rooftop restaurant and bar which features live entertainment on a regular basis. To help coordinate the entertainment, we are looking for a Director of Special Events. This is an entry-level management position.
The ideal candidate will be an outgoing individual who is passionate about sales, marketing and networking. The successful candidate will divide their time between working on sales and marketing objectives and also assisting the rooftop manager in driving strong operational standards to ensure every guest leaves Vue Rooftop as happy as possible.
Core Competencies will include but are not limited to:
  • Booking entertainment acts for Vue Rooftop such as live bands, dueling pianos, and themed mystery dinners.
  • Working with the hotel sales staff and Vue Rooftop front of house staff to ensure events are executed in a professional manner. These events may include birthday, graduation, retirement, and corporate holiday parties, or wedding party rehearsal dinners.

  • Represent Vue Rooftop at certain local networking events to drive engagement and direct business bookings.
  • Speak to patrons of Vue Rooftop on a regular basis and provide feedback to our sales, kitchen, and front of house operational teams.  
  • This is a fun position, yet the Director of Special Events must also maintain their composure under pressure.
  • A strong attendance record is expected, as is an understanding that restaurant/bars are at their busiest on nights and weekends and therefore this position will require a significant amount of night and weekend availability. 
Benefits include a downtown Iowa City parking pass, medical, dental, vision, 401k, paid vacation, flex spending, Aflac, and career development opportunities that are competitive in the industry.
