“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Denver's Uptown neighborhood is a good place to escape downtown traffic while still remaining adjacent to the city center. Stretching east from downtown and north of Capitol Hill, the Uptown district contains Denver's Restaurant Row. Lining 17th Avenue is a collection of eateries and bars that range from tiny local hangouts to upscale dining. The Avenue Grill is a casual spot, and Strings offers upscale New American fare and hearty brunches. The Thin Man is a tiny bar that's become a firm local favorite for house-made infused vodkas and inspired bar fare. The historic Fillmore Auditorium and Ogden theaters on Colfax are wonderful small concert venues to discover up-and-coming bands.
