About Highland, Denver Real Estate

A trendy, urban neighborhood with a bustling restaurant scene

Overlooking downtown Denver, Highland neighborhood is a buzzy residential community featuring lush gardens, pristine parks, and boutiques and restaurants trendy enough for the hippest of hipsters. This fun, youthful spot is equal parts city cool and residential oasis. From the lively bars and bistros on Tennyson Street to the picturesque Sloan’s Lake, Highland offer residents a wide variety of entertainment, including those famed Broncos – and, even better, the stadium is only a short walk away.


The town site for Highland was designed in 1858 by William Larimer, Jr, who had founded Denver City only a month prior. By 1871, streetcars had arrived and with them an influx of residents. Evidence of this storied history can be seen along the stately avenues lined with elegant Victorian homes. Today, the housing market includes chic condo buildings and stylish lofts, as well as eclectic single-family houses and stunning new construction builds with lots of glass and open-concept features.

What to Love

  • Beautifully manicured parks
  • Vibrant culinary scene
  • A hip, youthful energy

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

The Denver area is one of the country’s best for eclectic dining. From handcrafted ice cream to globally-inspired cuisine, Highland neighborhood is sure to satisfy your cravings. You’ll definitely scream for Little Man Ice Cream, which serves Denver's freshest homemade ice cream, waffle cones, and other scrumptious treats. Get the gang together for wings at Fire on the Mountain or grab a Detroit-style pizza from Blue Pan Pizza, a modern pizzeria serving locally brewed beer and cocktails. El Camino Community Tavern is the area’s best Mexican kitchen, known for happy hour and brunch, while the eclectic menu at Root Down features globally-influenced seasonal cuisine with a focus on organic and locally sourced ingredients. This artful spot is a converted filling station and its high energy is perfect for group hangouts.

How about a side of macabre with your Mongolian duck? Linger is a hip restaurant and rooftop lounge set in an old mortuary. Enjoy seasonal small-batch beer and the perfect small bite accompaniments, like freshly baked pretzels and cheese boards, at Oasis Brewery.

Things to Do

The cool kids in Denver hang at Highlands Square. This vibrant area sits just west of downtown and features quaint architecture, dozens of trendy boutiques, salons, coffee shops, and restaurants. This is where you’ll find Highland Farmers Market, Denver’s favorite way to spend Sunday mornings. Visit the Booze Tent for a bloody mary before perusing the market for organic veggies, artisan bread, fresh coffee, and more, or pick up some treats and head to shady Highland Park for a relaxing picnic. Live like your favorite rock star or play out your orchestra dreams at the Avanti Music Academy, which offers a conservatory approach to private music lessons.
