Welcome to Highland/LoHi  

A bustling, hip neighborhood with unbeatable city and mountain views 
 
The Lower Highlands, LoHi for short, is one of Denver’s oldest and hippest neighborhoods. Located just a short walk from downtown Denver using the Highland Pedestrian Bridge, this area is a hot spot for entertainment, trendy restaurants, retail shops, and nightlife in the form of cocktail bars, breweries, and rooftop dining.
 
LoHi is part of the Denver Highland neighborhood and gets its name from its location in the lower section of the Highland. It includes LoHi, Highland Square, and Potter Highlands Historic District and is bordered by Federal Boulevard to the west, I-25 to the east, 38th to the north, and Speer Boulevard to the south.
 
The Highland neighborhood has a deep history that stretches back to 1858, when the founder of Denver City laid out the original townsite. Overlooking Denver were acres of fruit and vegetable farmland and ranches. Residents would cross the Platte River into Denver on day trips to trade goods in the city. 
 
Homes in the neighborhood consist of towering lofts, renovated bungalows, brownstones, Tudors, and turn-of-the-century Denver Squares, as well as brand-new modern condos, duplexes, and townhomes with spectacular views of downtown Denver.   
What to Love  
  • A short walk to downtown Denver   
  • The contrast of historic homes and new architecture
  • Exciting nightlife  
  • Endless dining opportunities  
Local Lifestyle   
LoHi’s proximity to downtown Denver, lively scenery, beautiful homes, and easy access to trendy shops, galleries, coffee shops, and some of the city’s best eateries make it one of Denver’s most sought-after neighborhoods. A bastion of urban living, LoHi attracts young singles, urban professionals, and growing families who enjoy the bustling vibe of an exciting neighborhood.  
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping   
LoHi has an impressive collection of stores offering anything from trendy fashion to amazing wine and upmarket home furnishings. Visit Vintish for high-quality women’s clothing and Ratio Clothing for custom menswear.   
 
When it comes to dining, LoHi has some of the city’s best restaurants. For a sweet treat, try the iconic Little Man Ice Cream, a neighborhood hotspot with ice cream so good there’s always a line (you can’t miss the building — a gigantic milk jug!). For coffee lovers, check out Wooden Spoon Cafe & Bakery and Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii. Visit The Green Collective Eatery for organic salads, toasts, smoothies, lattes, and cold-pressed juice. The Happy Camper is an excellent spot for brunch and cocktails.  
 
Avanti is a collective space with seven different restaurants, each occupying its own shipping container (a food hall concept inspired by European markets and food truck roundups). This food hall, which is bi-level, including a great rooftop patio, covers just about every craving, from pizza, burgers, and Venezuelan and Chinese cuisine to seafood, bistro-style fare, craft cocktails, beer, and wine. Also, consider a visit to Root Down, a farm-to-table restaurant popular today thanks to its classy, artsy decor and an equally vibrant menu of New American cuisine and custom cocktails.  
 
For Spanish and Eastern Mediterranean, El Five offers elaborate mezze platters, traditional and modern tapas, tasty paellas, and colorful cocktails. Thanks to its fifth-floor location, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a sunset-bathed terrace, this restaurant boasts sweeping views over LoHi and downtown Denver. Stop by Postino LoHi for Italian favorites like bruschetta, panini, artisan cheese boards, soups, and salads, as well as a nice selection of wine. For a unique dining experience, don’t forget to check out Linger, an interesting restaurant with a macabre past and a splendid rooftop patio. Housed in a former mortuary, this eclectic restaurant has a menu inspired by urban street food in America, Asia, Italy, and the Middle East.   
 
And for a casual afternoon or night out with friends, try Recess Beer Garden. Its open-air bar faces a spacious, multi-level patio with picnic seating and lawn games. Another great establishment is Williams & Graham, a speakeasy-style place where reservations are recommended.
Things to Do  
Fittingly for a region with such history, Highland and LoHi epitomize the best Denver has to offer. The neighborhood contains Zuni Street Brewing Company, Prost Brewing Co. & Biergarten, Diebolt Brewing Company, and Cerveceria Colorado — each a gem in its own right. You and your friends can make a day out of the cafe or have fun brewery-hopping. 
 
Within the Highland/LoHi neighborhood is the Potter Highlands Historic District.  Plan a day to stroll through the neighborhood and check out the beautiful architecture, the mansions and the communal gardens.   LoHi locals can hop on the 32nd St. bike path and ride west to Golden at the base of the Rocky Mountains. A year in the Highlands also comes with annual events like the Recess Street Fair and the LoHi Pride Music Fest.
