Capitol Hill

   

Capitol Hill is bordered by Colfax Ave to the North, 7th Ave to the South, Downing St to the East and Broadway to the West.

Capitol Hill is one of the most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods in  Denver.  There are a large number of restaurants ranging from Cuban to  Greek, plus vibrant nightlife with jazz and blues clubs.  Hotels are  also in abundance along with historic and fine art museums.

Residents of Capitol Hill enjoy excellent shopping with a wide  variety of retail stores and charming boutiques, in addition to vibrant  brew pubs and piano bars.

Capitol Hill is located just southeast of Denver’s central business  district near the Civic Center and the Colorado State Capitol.  The  neighborhood is characterized by some of the oldest single-family homes  in the city and was once the home of Denver’s elite and origination of  American Foursquare architecture.

Today, Capitol Hill consists of historic mansions, apartment and  condo buildings, with office development primarily concentrated in the  northwest portion of the neighborhood with small professional offices  located throughout the neighborhood.  It is one of the most cosmopolitan  neighborhoods in Denver and a well-known haven for artists and  bohemians.

There are two concert venues, multiple parks, and a special ambiance  that makes the neighborhood appealing to a wide range of home buyers.   Capitol Hill offers a rare affordability in housing options compared to  other Denver neighborhoods, but parking is at a premium.  Some  redevelopment in the area is making it more pedestrian- friendly.
