North Denver (Highlands)

North Denver is home to several thriving neighborhoods.

North Denver residents enjoy vibrant, family-oriented neighborhoods that are close to wonderful locally-owned businesses and small shops. The sweet suburbs of the Highlands, located just west of downtown Denver, is a great area with neighborhood feels you just don't get in the city.

This bustling, restaurant-packed haven, thanks to nationally recognized restaurants like Old Major (now closed), offers a wide variety of things to do. Go from having a drink at Williams and Graham or The Denver Beer Co, to dinner at Fifth String, a small-plate restaurant and the brainchild of Amos Watts, the previous head chef at Old Major. Don’t forget dessert - “hello Little Man Ice Cream!” to a little bit of nightlife, all within a four or five-block radius. 

On a Saturday morning, you can't beat brunch at the Root Down which is part of Edible Beats Restaurant Group and boasts four other concepts in the Highlands (Ophelias, Linger, and Zine) that are part of the farm-to-table movement that sources locally, sustainably, and organically. 

Get a great taste of Denver all in one small tree-lined neighborhood.
