Capitol Hill

Sitting just east of downtown, Capitol Hill balances vintage charm and modern hipness. Known as Denver’s counter-culture district in the 1960s and 1970s, Capitol Hill still embraces a funky vibe with some of the oldest historic mansions in Denver along Logan and Pennsylvania Streets. The area’s LGBTQ+ friendly atmosphere and diverse dining options also make Capitol Hill a lively neighborhood for group outings. In addition to pastel painted Victorian homes, you can admire murals and street art along the hip commercial corridors of South Broadway and East Colfax Avenue. Shopping in the Broadway Marketplace is always an experience with its collection of boutiques, tattoo parlors, skate shops, bookstores, and music venues. After the sun goes down, your group can bar hop around some of Denver’s best live music venues and nightlife spots like the Hi-Dive, 3 Kings Tavern, and Charlie’s Denver. Or for a chill night, gather around one of Capitol Hill’s cozy coffee shops and wine bars that remain open late.

City Park and Congress Park Neighborhoods

On the east side along 6th Avenue, you’ll discover two green sister neighborhoods, City Park and Congress Park. The area offers a serene escape from downtown with two sprawling public parks connected by quiet residential streets. At the heart sits the Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Zoo. Your group can admire tropical plants in the sultry Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory before strolling through thoughtfully designed outdoor gardens. Afterward, make your way over to the zoo’s 80 acres to visit elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and more.

Detroit Street is the area’s central retail corridor with restaurants, bakeries, and shops including the hip Denver Bicycle Cafe.

Cherry Creek

But you’ll also uncover local boutiques, art galleries, and sidewalk cafes that create a comfortable neighborhood vibe. The pedestrian-friendly Fillmore Plaza district offers group activities like bocce ball at The Woods and craft cocktails at Annette. You can also book services at the Beauty Brands spa before strolling the area’s tree-shaded streets.

RiNo Art District

The River North Art District (RiNo) is one of Denver’s trendiest emerging neighborhoods.

Your group can fill up an entire day gallery hopping along Brighton Boulevard and admiring eye-catching murals and graffiti art. Don’t miss the distinctive bird murals by world-renowned street artist D*Face. In between aesthetic stops, fuel up on craft brews and creative eats at areas hotspots like Bierstadt Lagerhaus, Our Mutual Friend Brewing, and Dairy Block micro food hall. Planning a party bus for a brewery crawl through RiNo is always a memorable outing.

Highlands and Lower Highlands (LoHi)

Across the South Platte River from downtown, The Highlands and LoHi neighborhoods are a go-to for hip restaurants, bars, and boutiques. LoHi specifically has an artsy vibe thanks to art galleries and colorful street murals. On hot days, hit up one of LoHi’s patio bars like Linger or Avanti F&B. At night, your group can bar hop along Lower Highland’s Central Corridor, bouncing between spots like Lola Coastal Mexican and the breezy Ale House at Amato’s. Over in Highlands, 32nd and Lowell is the central business district with home design shops, flower boutiques, and trendy Loan Provisions restaurant.

Golden Triangle

Sandwiched between Capitol Hill and Civic Center, Golden Triangle is a central district near Denver’s top attractions. As home to the Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, and History Colorado Center, Golden Triangle allows easy museum hopping and statue gardens galore. At the district’s core at 13th and Broadway, sip drinks with a view at Linger Eatery’s rooftop patio overlooking the city skyline. Then gather your group to catch a show at Denver Performing Arts Complex venues like the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and Buell Theatre. Make your group outing one to remember as you conveniently explore Denver’s top sights together via party bus in Golden Triangle and the surrounding Civic Center area.

Wash Park

In Denver’s Platt Park neighborhood, you’ll uncover the laidback charms of Washington Park, dubbed Wash Park by locals. The two-mile loop around the park makes for a relaxing group stroll under the shade of towering cottonwood trees. Pack a group picnic to enjoy on the park’s expansive lawn, or rent a pedal boat for the day to cruise across Smith Lake. Of course, you can always end your time at Wash Park across the street at one of Denver’s most beloved taverns, My Brother’s Bar. The no frills watering hole feels plucked from a past era but retains a modern-day crowd with its delicious burgers and ice-cold beers.

The blocks around 44th Ave contain local treasures like handmade goods shop Amadi, artisanal chocolates at Cake Crumbs, and the independent BookBar bookstore.
