Although Japoix has closed, leaving a black hole of a space that also swallowed up Nine75, there are new signs of life in the Beauvallon building -- and, in fact, all along the 1000 block of Lincoln Street. DiFranco's, an Italian deli, opened in the Beauvallon in May; it was soon joined by another Italian joint, Attivo Pizza & Subs (which moved from its longtime home on Ninth Avenue) and a coffee shop, Drip.

And the action continues across the street. Satori nightclub will open next week in the former home of Rockstar lounge, at 940 Lincoln Street.

Up at 988 Lincoln, a sign over the space that once held the original Spicy Pickle promises that Drew's Deli is coming soon. Also coming soon is DJ's 9th Ave. Cafe, which is slated to open just across Ninth Avenue. It's a sibling of DJ's Berkley Cafe.

That's a lot of life suddenly joining such neighborhood stalwarts as Opal and Dazzle.

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.
