Neighborhood Focus: Berkeley
Located on the Northwest side of Denver, the Berkeley neighborhood contains a diverse mix of businesses and architecture, with a history dating back to the late-1800s, when streetcars were the popular mode of transportation. Today, it retains its old-town vibe with unique shops, eateries, art walks, and more.
Let your pups romp free at the off-leash Berkeley Dog Park, which has fenced options for both large and small dogs. Cat lovers need not despair, as Denver’s first Cat Cafe is a popular destination to spend time with, or even adopt, a furry friend. For old-style amusement park fun, visit Lakeside and ride the wooden roller coaster if you dare. The Cesar Chavez Park offers a playground for kids, conveniently located near popular caffeine outposts Allegro and Downpours for the adults.
Where to begin? Start at 38th and Tennyson, and head north to find cute boutiques, yummy restaurants, coffee shops, and more. Some of our favorites include: Vital Root, Parisi, Hops & Pie, Mouthfuls Pet Store, BookBar, Tennyson Street Coffee , De Steeg Brewing, Ohana Yoga, Natural Grocers, and the Oriental Theatre.
It’s fairly easy to get around by bike or on foot, and there’s public bus transportation that serves downtown Denver and areas to the west. If you’re driving, Berkeley neighborhood has convenient access to I-70 and the mountains, and it’s about a 10-minute drive to downtown.
