Denver’s array of colorful and trendy neighborhoods creates a beautiful palette of culture and style. Lower Highlands, also known as LoHi, adds a modern scene to this already diverse landscape. The vibrant food scene and exciting nightlife, along with its location near downtown, make it a must-live destination. 

The neighborhood is extremely dog-friendly, and it seems like almost everyone has a pup and lives for outdoor experiences and patio dining. So whatever reason has you wanting to move to Denver, LoHi can be your next home. So, if Uptown is for shoppers, RiNo is for artists and Platt Park is for beer enthusiasts, LoHi is for the foodie.

Perfect for the foodie, LoHi’s dining scene blends unique flavors, farm-to-table ingredients and traditional favorites. Whether looking for brunch, ice cream or something a little more fancy, you can find it in this metropolitan neighborhood. The only hard part will be figuring out where to start.

With a central location just outside of Downtown, LoHi has a welcoming community that is always down for a good time. From the monthly movie night at Avanti to the prohibition-style speakeasy at Williams & Graham, there is an abundance of fun to be had. Step into the cavalcade of bars and destinations and discover something exceptionally fun in LoHi.

  • Avanti Food and Beverage: Inspired by European markets and the food truck collections, Avanti Food and Beverage is a hub of some of the most popular restaurants and bars in LoHi. 
  • Williams & Graham: Class and sophistication are mainstays at Williams & Graham. The wall of spirits and diverse menu of handcrafted cocktails make it a great place for post-dinner drinks or a first date.

  • Occidental: If you like a little edge and counterculture in your bar scene, Occidental has what you’re looking for. Order from the diverse menu of drinks and pair your libation with the many guilty-pleasure food options available.

While their food game is strong, LoHi also has more to offer. The neighborhood is home to the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival and Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus. Like the rest of the city, LoHi is extremely bike-friendly. As a tradeoff for its minimal parking, the neighborhood has multiple light rail stations. LoHi is perfect for the person who wants an easy commute but hopes to maintain some distance from the office Downtown. 

If the food of LoHi already has you salivating, consider moving into Infinity LoHi or Alexan LoHi and you can start calling yourself a Denverite now.
