North Capitol Hill / Uptown

About North Capitol Hill / Uptown

This hip district has firmly established itself as a capital of "cool," just east of downtown. Restaurant Row, the stretch of 17th Avenue running from Broadway to City Park, is lined with cafes, bistros, pubs, fine dining and LGBTQ-friendly bars - almost all with outdoor patios. From a few rounds of ping pong at Ace Eat Serve to drinks, dining and dessert at Chef Keegan Gerhard's D Bar, Uptown is the epicenter for tempting taste buds.

It's also where you'll find Denver's largest green space, City Park. City Park offers free jazz every Sunday in the summer during City Park Jazz and is home to two of the city's most popular attractions - the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

After the silver crash of 1893, the Capitol Hill mansions began to be replaced by the charming apartments now seen in North Capitol Hill. The mid-1900s saw an influx of artists and musicians, which gave the neighborhood the hip vibe it maintains to this day. Seventeenth Avenue remains one of the most eclectic and delightful walks in the city, with shops, dining, and historical buildings. North Capitol Hill/Uptown is bordered by Twentieth Avenue and Colfax, Park Avenue on the northeast, Downing Street on the east, and Broadway on the west.
