Jenna & Devin are Athmar Park locals who have a whole lot of love for their neighborhood and the community feel of it! They have lots of favorite restaurants & bars to recommend that we have now added to our list to try. They actively enjoy our city, their neighborhood & everything to do in it!
What neighborhood do you live in?
Why did you choose that neighborhood?
We wanted to stay within the city limits of Denver, be close to downtown and also able to get up to the mountains quickly. This neighborhood provides that at an affordable price. We love the style of the 1940s and 1950s brick homes in Athmar Park and the fact that the neighborhood has it’s own park (Huston Lake Park), where we walk our dogs on a daily basis. We also love the diversity of the neighborhood and all the delicious food options nearby.
In addition, Athmar Park is within two to five miles of several craft breweries (Strange Brewing Co, Wit’s End Brewing Co, Former Future Brewing Co, Platt Park Brewing Co, Grandma’s House Brewing Co, Declaration Brewing Co, Fermaentra Brewing, Renegade Brewing Co…) and even has it’s own local brewery: Chain Reaction Brewing Co.
The neighbors of Athmar Park are very friendly and community oriented. There is a neighborhood association that meets monthly, hosts an annual Christmas Potluck, an annual summer BBQ in the park and also puts on a weekly run club. You can be as involved in the community as you would like.
Nearby is the South Broadway “SoBo” area with its abundance of restaurants and bars and there is a monthly First Friday Art Walk in the Santa Fe Art District. Finally, the neighborhood is close to the Alameda light rail station and the I-25 and Broadway light rail station to get downtown to see a game or get dinner.
What are your favorite local places?
What do you love about Denver?
We love that Denver is a mecca of craft beer and delicious food (whether from a food truck or a fancy farm to table restaurant) and that it is a city where you will find people from all walks of life at any bar you walk into. We love the active lifestyle of Denver residents and take part in the skiing, hiking, biking and camping ourselves. We also love Denver’s sunny weather and it’s proximity to the mountains.
