We love Denver so much that we can't choose favorites. We have these neighborhoods on our radar because they each contribute to this awesome city. They each have their own history, their own flavors and their secrets; and we can't get enough. Whether it's Bonnie Brae Ice Cream, the Clyfford Still Museum, Tables, or Chubby's, each neighborhood has its own reason for being great.
Park Hill is one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods in Denver. Take a stroll down 17th Avenue or Montview Boulevard, and you'll see some of Denver's grandest houses. Stop in at the Cherry Tomato for Italian to-die-for, and wander next door to Spinelli's to pick up a few gourmet treats. Hit a few balls at the Park Hill Golf Club and while away the evening at Tables with a bottle of wine.
Bonnie Brae is all about history. This quaint little neighborhood boasts a tightly-knit community and some star businesses, too. The black walnut ice cream at Bonnie Brae Ice Cream was made this morning, and the eggs Benedict at 730 South have been voted Best of Denver time and time again. The Eugene Field library is cozy and rife with family-friendly activities, and afterwards, walk over to the Bonnie Brae Tavern for a pizza and some neighborhood camaraderie.
The Golden Triangle is one of Denver’s truly up-and-coming neighborhoods. Once known as ‘Bail Bond Central,’ the Triangle is now the cultural center of Denver; home to the sleek Denver Art Museum, the Denver Public Library, and the new Clyfford Still Museum - along with many independent art galleries. Start your evening with a mojito and a Cuban sandwich at Cuba Cuba and salsa your night away at La Rumba. The coffee at Rooster & Moon is legendary, and Cap City Tavern is a great place to unwind after work.
Often confused with the Highlands, Sunnyside is defined as anything above 38th Street. Sunnyside has an amazing indie shine to it, with standout joints like the Stingray Lounge and Hash. Grab a giant (and delicious) burrito at the legendary Chubby's, or go classy and head over to Lou's Food Bar (another great Frank Bonnano restaurant).
