New American Restaurant
$$
“Linger about 2.6 miles away, is a great restaurant and bar offering "international street food" so the cuisine is a bit all over the place, but lots of good asian cuisine. Be sure to check out the roof top bar with really nice downtown views, with the "O'Linger mortuaries" -it really used to be a mortuary! ”

We especially recommend The Rotary - Before starting The Rotary, chef/co-owner Don Gragg worked at acclaimed restaurants nationwide including Barolo Grill, Starfish (Denver), Chez Panisse (Berkeley, Calif.) and Gramercy Tavern (New York).”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“It’s hard to overstate Williams & Graham’s impact in putting Denver’s bar scene on the national radar. You'd be hard-pressed to find better drinks than at this dark haunt, accessed through a bookshelf in a storefront. Because this is a must-visit for tourists and locals alike, waits for a seat are almost never short - but there is plenty to do in the LoHi neighborhood while you wait!”
