The Highlands neighborhood of Denver is growing. Fast.  Developers are quickly responding to its increasing popularity with new studios, flats, and apartments to complement the existing Victorian-era homes and turn-of-the-century apartment buildings. Highlands Denver Apartments are popular among newcomers and longtime area residents alike. With its unique mix of architecture and apartment styles, you are sure to find a space you love in one of the city’s most exciting areas.


Highlands Neighborhood Overview

The Highlands, or the “Northside,” is located just north of downtown Denver. However, despite its proximity to the center of the city (so close, you can walk to it), its quiet and calm streets give off a distinctive feel. As you walk through the streets of this district, you’ll find plenty of places to grab a bite to eat, sip coffee, pop bottles, or chill out with friends over a cool craft beer. Got a dog? Your pup will enjoy the many green spaces and parks of the Highlands as much as you will.


Things To Do In the Highlands Denver

The Highlands’ emerging restaurant scene has become a big draw for Denverites from all over the city. Area favorites include the Latin-inspired fare of Señor Bear and authentic pizzas and pasta of Bar Dough. Other notable eateries include Root Down, My Brother’s Bar, Sushi Sasa, and Little Man Ice Cream. Of course, if your group can’t agree on what’s for dinner, head to the Avanti Food & Beverage collective, a unique food hall featuring a collection of restaurants with a shared communal dining area.


For days of leisure, browse the Highland art galleries, clothing boutiques, the second-hand stores on Tennyson Street, and other independently-owned shops. See a live blues performance at Ziggie’s, sample the eclectic collection of wines at Mondo Vino, and grab fresh produce from the Highlands Farmers Market every Sunday.


One of the area’s biggest attractions is the “First Friday Culture Walk” along Tennyson Street, where local artisans and business owners gather for ten blocks of art, food, shopping, and culture the first Friday of every month. This event attracts people near and far to experience the unique vibe of the Highlands.
