16th Street Mall – a Denver destination


The 16th Street Mall, is not in Miami, not in NYC – just Denver.  It’s where plodding horse and carriages move up and down the mall in sequence with the free RTD buses, sharing the historic & modern, concrete-tiled downtown main street with a bustle of people and cyclists who expertly dodge in and out of the buses, know their way around the big horses and slackers. It’s a happy gathering for the homeless (itiswhatitis), the elite, suburban teenagers on their way to Elitche’s and happy dogs socializing on the street.

Cure your summer heat attacks with evening concerts, public art, food carts (Casa Cuba my fav), fyi: carts still selling illegal knockoff purses just off the mall ( shhhh), watch the permanent chess boards where games are in session all day, all night. Stick your nose into Lannie’s Clock Tower Cabaret for rip roaring entertaining burlesque or if you’re lucky catch Lannie herself for the best live entertainment in all of Denver. Relax at Red Square Euro Bistro for fig, dill and apricot infused vodka (& many more flavors), or the Hard Rock Cafe, Paramount Theater, the Rock Bottom Brewery (watch for their on the mall Friday concerts – Jakarta last Friday), Overland Sheep Company, and the most outrageous food overload ever at the Cheesecake Factory.  Get on down there for a virtual plethora of entertainment, music and people watching.

I Heart Denver.
