There is a pedestrian bridge crossing over I-25 which separates downtown Denver and the majestic Lower Highlands neighborhood.
Sunset Magazine recently mentioned Denver’s Highlands neighborhood to be among one of the nation’s top places to live, work and play. Forbes added the Highlands to their ‘Best of Hipster Neighborhoods’ list.
LoHi, or “The Lower Highlands” is one of three neighborhoods that make up the mass known officially as “The Highlands”. LoHi rightfully boasts some of the city’s best rated restaurants, independent and locally owned specialty shops, community gardens, and a unique variety of homes, architecturally designed from Victorian to ultra-modern.
LoHi has a kid-friendly, eco-friendly, community tone. This is a place where neighbors talk to neighbors, and everyone on the street greets one another with a smile or a friendly “hello”. LoHi has an innovative and artsy vibe that motivates everyone to be involved and engage in co-creating the community they want to live in.
This community offers street fairs and live music, along with kids’ day parades, a seasonal neighborhood ice rink, and once a year, over three hundred neighbors gather together for a community pot luck and white tablecloth dinner. Did I mention LoHi boasts the third-highest per capita coffee-shop ratio? With an eclectic mix of eateries, art studios, galleries and LoHi’s own “Bug Theater”, there are many things to see and do for people of all ages and interests. Every square foot in LoHi offers a unique and rewarding experience.
Take in a great brunch at The Gallup Café or Jezebels.
Stop in for some art, cool clothing or even a yoga class at SolShine Boutique. Explore fine wine and cheeses at The Truffle Table, join your neighbors at Linger or Old Major for a 5-star dinner, or go casual at the Highland Tap Burger.
Treat yourself to a perfectly mixed drink with your closest friends at Williams and Graham, one of the nation’s top speakeasies, which looks like a small bookstore unless you have a reservation to get behind the revolving bookshelf.
This neighborhood is filled with large trees, colorful gardens, beautiful homes, and stunning views of both the city as well as the mountains. Whether you live in the neighborhood or not, there is no doubt you will feel at home in the Lower Highlands!
