Reader: With all the better LoHi bars, Barry's@Highlands won't last long

Joints keep getting snapped up in LoHi, which Forbes has rated as one of the "hippest hipster neighborhoods" in the country. The most recent takeover: the former Arabian Bar, which has been in business since the '20s at 3360 Navajo Street. It's now being transformed into Barry's@Highlands by Barry Zadikoff, who took over the former Skylark Lounge space at 58 Broadway and transformed it into Barry's on Broadway eight years ago.

But will Barry's get a warm welcome in LoHi? See also: - Barry's@Highlands moves into former Arabian Bar space - Slide show: Midnight in LoHi

Says andafzzle:

Too bad--Barry's on Broadway was a step down from the Skylark as soon as it moved in. This bar won't last very long with all the better bars in the area.

Is LoHi the hippest hipster neighborhood in Denver? We sent our photographer out to survey the scene this weekend; see our "Midnight in LoHi" slide show here.
