Like many other art districts, RiNo was once home to industrial warehouses and rail yards. Today, it is the center of Denver’s street art scene and a hip, cultural hub. There is craft brewing, street art, one-of-a-kind cuisine, furniture makers, coffee roasters, and a whole lot more. Art galleries, studios, and tattoo shops are on every corner, and streets are covered in vibrant murals painted by some of Colorado’s most respected artists.

The area’s full name is River North Art District, but it has been shortened to RiNo, like many other Denver neighborhoods. This area has been the “belle of the ball” in recent years, with developers, restaurateurs, and residents all racing to claim a spot. This fast development has brought a wide range of rental options, from 400 square foot (yet surprisingly spacious) “micro-units” to luxury units. Just a stone’s throw from the CBD and right on the highway, commuting to and from RiNo is a breeze. Because it’s just north of downtown, you can get amazing views of the Denver skyline.

Neighborhood Vibe

Colorful murals, curated galleries, and public sculptures created by local artists are spread throughout this lively neighborhood. Walk through sidewalk chalk, and stop by a pub for a locally brewed beer. If international, multicultural, quirky fusion cuisine is your thing, you’ll be in heaven here. From food trucks to world-famous hole-in-the-wall restaurants, you’re sure to be impressed. RiNo is best described as an artist’s playground, so if you have a knack for exploring off the beaten path, this place is for you!

Favorite Spots

RiNo, in one sentence, is 5-star dining in a no-frills location. Food halls like The Source and Denver Central Market house the best of the best and offer a little something for everyone. Cart Driver serves up the best pizza you’ve ever had in a recycled shipping container. While chef Alon Shaya does modern Israeli at Safta that will leave you speechless. Acorn serves modern American and spectacular cocktails from Chef Ian Palazzola in a casual atmosphere. And Gerard’s Pool Hall, 10-Barrel Brewery, or Gold Point are all great places to become a regular. Crema Coffee House, Hop Alley, and Mister Tuna also should not be missed.

Things to Know

Commuting from the RiNo District is simple, with easy access to both I-70 and I-25. Two-hour (not-metered) street parking is abundant, but find parking early because once Dinner time hits it might be a bit tougher. Bike lanes make biking throughout RiNo simple and safe. River North housing is primarily small to mid-rise buildings with mesmerizing city views. (Pro Tip: If you're looking for a more residential feel, check out Five Points. Or, if you'd like a more fast-paced urban feel, LoDo or Uptown might be more your style.)
