Highlands is Denver's latest "it" place to be. The 250-acre section northwest of downtown has experienced amazing growth and changes over the past few years, and is overflowing with trendy restaurants, bars, and shops. Three diverse commercial districts - Lower Highlands (LoHi), Highlands Square and Tennyson Street make Highlands Denver's largest neighborhood.
Highlands Square at 32nd and Lowell is a charming neighborhood of quaint boutiques and restaurants, situated among bungalow-style houses. Restaurants in Highlands Square serve up an array of fare, including Mexican and Caribbean cuisine, seafood and sushi. Pubs, as well as wine, sake and martini bars play a big part in giving this area a fun, lively ambiance.
Another area of interest in Highlands is the Tennyson Street Cultural District where you'll find live music venues and some great Italian and Mexican food. The Navajo Street Art District is tucked away in the Lower Highlands area of Denver. With amazing galleries, fine dining, great performance art, and ample parking, it's truly one of the best kept secrets in town.
If you're looking for a neighborhood on the verge, look no further than Lower Highlands, or East Highlands. Spanning both sides of the Highland Bridge, LoHi is a great place to shop, eat, stroll and relax.
