Capitol Hill

About this Neighborhood

For the lover of all things fresh, mixed and mingled, Capitol Hill is the place to be. Holding the titles as urban Denver’s most densely populated neighborhood as well as one of the oldest, Capitol Hill is home to a serendipitous combination of old and new. Here, historic mansions and Victorian homes (the famous Molly Brown House included) sit side-by-side with vintage 1960s walkups and contemporary condos.

You’ll also find many a unique personality and fixed-gear bike furnishing the lanes of Denver’s own Poet’s Row, inviting the likes of bohemians, artists and young professionals alike. Friendly and open-minded, Capitol Hill houses the city’s gold-domed capitol building—Get it? Capitol Hill?—and caters to those who crave total walkability. Music venues, one-of-a-kind bars, quirky shops, museums, clubs and more are all just a hop, skip or step away.
