Distinguished historic buildings renovated and redefined into a tremendous variety of boutiques, restaurants, bars and living spaces define Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo to the locals). Work and play go hand in hand in this vibrant area, and, with the Rocky Mountains and International Airport just 30 minutes away, weekend getaways and mountain adventures are a breeze.
Not Just Mountains and Cowboys
Life in LoDo: Wake up to a panoramic city-view from your uber-trendy loft, marvel at how the exposed brick, open duct work and stainless steel compliment that view so nicely. Start your weekends with a kick at Core Power Yoga and Common Grounds Coffee House. Once your blood is pumping, it's time to shop. Head over to the16th Street Mall for tremendous shopping variety in this chic, 16 block, pedestrian-only area.
After a morning of shopping and walking, your appetite is sure to call. Zaidy's Deli, a Denver staple in Writers Square, will make your mouth water with potato latkes and fabulous sandwiches. Also not to miss, the seafood specials at Jax Fish House and McCormick's, and the to-die-for pizza at Wazee Supper Club.
You may need some winding down after such a busy morning - good thing some of Denver's best spas and salons are in LoDo. Elixer Mind Body Massage offers an extensive menu of massage and acupuncture services in an indulgent atmosphere. Luxe Salon, voted "Best in Denver" by 5280 magazine, will redefine your hair and skin in style.
If you're still up for more of what LoDo has to offer, head over to Coors Field for an afternoon of sun and baseball, then sample Colorado's superior microbrews and live music at the rooftop bars of Lodo's Bar and Grill or Falling Rock. Dance till dawn at clubs like Bash and Rise, or laugh 'till it hurts at Comedy Works. Or, grab a bottle of vino and relax on your 10th floor patio, appreciating life in this fabulous city.
