Northwest Denver is changing quickly, so quickly that Linger, which we voted Best Restaurant Patio With a View less than five months ago, has already lost some of that view. The new residential/retail complex going up...and up...on Boulder Street has not only obscured the view of downtown that Lola enjoyed for years, but it's also cut into the formerly unobscured look at the city skyline that you could see from the top of Linger.
Linger still has a great patio, even if the view is a little less great than it was last spring. Keep reading to see how that view has changed.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
