Perched on the hill above downtown Denver, the Lower Highlands neighborhood has one of the best views in town. Known as LoHi, the relatively new area of downtown Denver is best described as hip. Urban. Cool. With new restaurants popping up left and right and tons of foot traffic, thanks to the pedestrian and bike friendly Highland’s Bridge, LoHi is buzzing year-round with people in search of happy hour, a quick bite or a late night out at some of the trendiest bars in town.
HUNI Farmer’s Market.
Denver is set in a high desert, which might make it a difficult venue for a successful farmer’s market. But Highland United Neighbors has created one that’s quickly becoming the place to be every Saturday from June ‘til October. Located along Boulder Street, just up the block from the pedestrian bridge into downtown, it features an assortment of fresh local produce and products, food from local restaurants, street vendors, children’s activities, and live music.
One of three bridges connecting downtown proper to the Highlands, this bridge deserves credit for making LoHi what it is today. Allowing foot traffic to cross bustling I-25, pedestrians can now meander from downtown up to restaurant row on Boulder Street or head down into Denver to catch a show, a game or the Denver nightlife.
The locals’ local place.
Denver is a town of foodies. And LoHi is home to some of the city’s most innovative restaurants. Happy Hour at LoLa. Street tacos at Linger. Cassoulet at Z Cuisine. Ice cream at Little Man. Sunset at Vita. The local, rotating menu at Root down. Late night around the fire at Forest Room Five. The 42 craft brews on tap at the Ale House at Amato’s. Now that we’ve divulged some of the best eats in town, go try them for yourself.
Modern townhouses and condos
LoHi is home to wide range of people - from singles to young families to empty nesters - who enjoy the urban neighborhood vibe and proximity to some of Denver’s best restaurants, coffee shops, galleries, boutiques and nightlife. Newer homes featuring contemporary architecture are interspersed with older, Victorians and brownstones. But the true draw of LoHi is the uber-modern lofts being built with a strategic view of Denver’s incredible skyline. A neighborhood on the rise, this is a hot real estate market and a wonderful place to call home.
