Lower Highlands, commonly referred to as LoHi, is situated near downtown Denver but has a distinct charm that separates itself from the bustling metropolitan. Although this area is on the pricier side, the community spirit and innovative dining options more than make up for it.
LoHi’s character mirrors its location: somewhere between the wholesome-trendy West Highlands and the poised, sophisticated Riverfront Park. Walk downtown by crossing the Platte River at the Highland Arch Bridge or stay in LoHi to avoid the ballpark crowd and enjoy an Instagram-worthy happy hour. Because it’s located just north of downtown, you get unbeatable city and mountain views from this neighborhood.
LoHi residents unite over their shared interest in patio seating, coffee shops, craft breweries, and walking, biking, or running outdoors. Housing options in LoHi are mostly mid-rise residential buildings or ultra-modern townhomes. Expect higher rent prices, ample parking, and easy access to the highway.
Walk through LoHi, and you’ll see people jogging on the sidewalks pushing strollers, sitting outside of coffee shops, stepping out to get the mail, and carrying reusable shopping bags to the nearest locally-owned grocery store. This area blends suburban and urban living with a dash of small-town-feel. You’ll bump into neighbors at rooftop happy hours, meet up to attend pilates classes, and enjoy the weekends at home in your little community.
Little Man Ice Cream is a local staple, and upstairs, Linger serves delicious treats with a skyline view. Catch incredible views of Denver’s skyline from the patio of El Five while you sip an artisan cocktail with an old-world style garnish. Can’t agree on a place to eat within your friend group?
