We’re writing about neighborhoods in preparation for our Housing and Resource Fair on May 1. This is part two of our series.
Whether you’re looking to admire some of Denver’s oldest homes, or find a hip, new place to go on Friday night, Capitol Hill has you covered.
Nestled between Colfax and Eighth and Broadway and Downing, Capitol Hill, or Cap Hill for short, is a great neighborhood. Strolling through, you’ll see a mix of tattooed and pierced hipsters and young professionals in suits. An eclectic group occupy the many studios and one-bedroom apartments in the area.
Cap Hill boasts a great assortment of newer bars and restaurants.
I must say, I love the mainstays that have anchored the neighborhood for decades.
If you’re a fan of beat poetry, head down to Charlie Brown’s and sit at the same bar once graced by Jack Kerouac and Alan Ginsberg. No matter your tastes (or diet), there’s somewhere in Cap Hill for you. City O’ City is known as one of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants in Denver; menu highlights include seitan wings and gourmet pizzas.
If live music is your thing, Cap Hill is home to two of Denver’s biggest concert venues, Fillmore Auditorium and Ogden Theatre. Hosted bands are as varied as neighborhood denizens. Occasionally, you can even catch a Roller Derby tournament.
If you’d rather spend your free time in the sunshine, Cap Hill is in close proximity to two of Denver’s biggest parks, Civic Center and Cheesman. In the summer, look out for fairs and festivals, such as The People’s Fair in June or A Taste of Colorado over Labor Day weekend.
If Capitol Hill sounds like the place for you, don’t miss out on the opportunity to talk to representatives from this area at the Housing and Resource Fair. Definitely chat with reps from Boutique Apartments, Cornerstone Apartment Services, Inc., and Performance Property Management. If you’re ready to invest in a home or condo, check in with our guests from Kentwood City Properties, Live Urban Denver and Colorado Housing and Finance Authority.
The fun lasts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 1 in Tivoli 320.
