South Broadway("SoBo" for short) is lined with an eclectic mixture of neighborhood taverns, avant-garde clothing stores, art galleries, used bookstores, sporting goods emporiums, international restaurants, music clubs, pizza parlors, live music venues, and everything else you'd expect to find within the urban heartbeat of The Mile High City. Whether you're looking for something to do or something to eat, there's a good chance you'll find it on Broadway. The area has a vibrant late-night scene, with clubs featuring salsa, swing, techno and indie rock sprinkled throughout.
Just five minutes from Cherry Creek and 10 minutes from downtown, this mostly residential neighborhood with a Rockwellian feel is also one of Denver's oldest shopping and dining districts. In Old South Gaylord, awning-covered storefronts capture the feeling of a time when life was simpler, giving the neighborhood a relaxed, laid-back feel. There are 60 shops, restaurants, and bars to tempt your taste buds. Washington Park is just four blocks east and is consistently voted Denver's favorite park.
In 1893, one of Denver's first trolley cars rumbled down South Pearl Street. Today, the movie houses, stores and businesses have been carefully restored and converted into 14 restaurants and bars, nine art galleries and 34 specialty stores. You'll find coffee shops, wine bars, neighborhood pubs and some of the city's most popular fine dining, with cuisine ranging from Hungarian to sushi.
