New American Restaurant

“Linger about 2.6 miles away, is a great restaurant and bar offering "international street food" so the cuisine is a bit all over the place, but lots of good asian cuisine. Be sure to check out the roof top bar with really nice downtown views, with the "O'Linger mortuaries" -it really used to be a mortuary! ”

“literally right next to Linger is Little Man Ice Cream -you'll know where to go since it's an ice cream shop that's shaped like a giant ice cream churn / bottle with a long a** line to it. Considered one of the best homemade ice cream shops in Denver. also a nice area around it to lounge and people watch”

Art Museum
“Downtown art museum - check out the roof cafe for a peaceful lunch in the summer.”
  • 151 locals recommend
Cocktail Bar
$$$
“It’s hard to overstate Williams & Graham’s impact in putting Denver’s bar scene on the national radar. You'd be hard-pressed to find better drinks than at this dark haunt, accessed through a bookshelf in a storefront. Because this is a must-visit for tourists and locals alike, waits for a seat are almost never short - but there is plenty to do in the LoHi neighborhood while you wait!”

Football Stadium
