Capitol Hill Neighborhood Overview

The Capitol Hill Denver neighborhood—also known as “Cap Hill”—is more than a home to the Colorado State Capital Building. It is a historically-rich neighborhood that wears its heart on its sleeve, and its past with pride. If you’re looking for authentic city living, complete with great restaurants, and endless things to do, the raw and real vibe of Capitol Hill Denver Apartments will suit you well.


Things to do in Capitol Hill

You’ll never get bored with the endless hidden gems waiting to be explored throughout the neighborhood’s limits. Music lovers can enjoy being just a walk away from their favorite venues, like The Fillmore, Ogden Theatre, and The Bluebird. Nature enthusiasts can take a break from the concrete jungle and relax in the greenspace of Cheesman Park. History buffs and art lovers can spend their Sunday strolls at the Denver Art Museum, The Molly Brown House, the State’s Capitol, and the other museums that dot the neighborhood.


Of course, you can also just stroll the streets of Cap Hill, where you will find impressive turn-of-the-century architecture, quirky bookstores, classic record shops, cute coffeehouses, and authentic dive bars. Not sure where to go? Start your stroll down the famous Colfax Ave and see which street mural, funky shop, or mansion-lined street calls to you.  This centrally-located neighborhood also makes it easy to venture into other nearby districts, connecting you to work, friends, and new experiences in a matter of minutes with cheap Uber fares.


Foodies and caffeine addicts love the abundant coffee shops and café culture of the neighborhood. We recommend getting creative with your eggs at Jelly Café, grabbing some ramen from Bones, and finding your vegan and gluten-free favorites at City, O’ City. For coffeehouses, check local favorites such as Roostertcat Coffee House, Hudson Hill, or Pablo’s Coffee to sample your new favorite beans and brewing styles. Beer snobs and wine connoisseurs will also love being so close to Argonaut, the city’s largest liquor store.
