Uptown Denver might be the perfect answer if the question is how can I live in a walkable neighborhood near downtown Denver.
The Uptown Neighborhood is a charming, laidback part of town, in the North Capitol Hill of Denver. Inviting patios, pubs, local coffee shops, and some of the best of Denver’s restaurants are all located in this small part of the city.
So, the hustle and bustle of urban life seems to melt away while you stroll the main drag of 17th Ave. Neighborhood markets, boutiques, and shady patios line the avenue. Those are perfect for sipping a craft brew.
Uptown Is A Foodie’s Delight!
If you have ever searched “best restaurants in Denver,” chances are you will find multiple spots located in the Uptown neighborhood. Some of the most popular eateries in Denver are tucked along “Restaurant Row,” the long stretch of blocks along 17th Ave. I have spent a few summer nights in this area bar hopping!
My Food Picks
Here are some of my go-to restaurant spots in the area:
Steubens Uptown- Comfort food to the max. Fried chicken plates, pot roast, mac and cheese, etc
Dos Santos- Yucatan style eats. Great margs, tacos, tuna poke nachos
Watercourse- Vegan comfort food. Honestly, I am not even vegan but the Southern fried cauliflower “chicken” plate is not to be missed!
Olive & Finch- A coffee shop and brunch spot. You’ll love the beautiful desserts and delightful coffee drinks here.
