Uptown/Capitol Hill/East Colfax
Sunset Magazine calls Uptown "one of Denver's hippest 'hoods, with lively new restaurants, chic shops and a cheery, progressive vibe." Another highlight for residents and visitors alike is Restaurant Row, the stretch of 17th Avenue running from Broadway to City Park that is lined with cafes, bistros, taco bars, fine dining establishments, upscale restaurants and a number of popular bars and clubs - almost all with outdoor patios.
For Denver's finest neighborhood dining, head straight to the urban enclave of Governor's Park/Capitol Hill, a bustling thoroughfare located just minutes from downtown. The gold-domed Colorado State Capitol anchors this hilltop neighborhood, which features art galleries, brewpubs and restaurants lining 6th Ave.
Here, music lovers flock to the Fillmore Auditorium and Ogden Theatre, bookworms browse the expansive Tattered Cover, and foodies find eclectic eats. The blocks surrounding the theaters are packed with bars and clubs that excel at late-night fun.
