Larimer Square, once considered an unsafe part of town, was slowly gentrified into the downtown core's most glamorous block. But the glitz of the resulting restaurants and retail spaces has slowly spread northward twenty blocks, peppering Larimer Street with places to eat and drink. Work & Class, Cart-Driver and Los Chingones were the pioneers that first broke dirt at 25th Street, and that movement took over every block up to 35th, where Hop Alley and Metroboom are surrounded by fresh construction sites, promising even more watering holes. In between are a winery, two breweries, and a handful of Denver's hottest restaurants, including the Populist, Bar Fausto and Finn's Manor. Side streets include two cideries, more breweries, and even more bars and restaurants, making this part of town an easy night of bar-hopping and boozing — all within walking distance of each other.
