Five Points





One of Denver's most culturally vibrant neighborhoods, Five Points is a tradition in itself. Soul food, Caribbean spice and mouth watering BBQ add flavor to one of the city's richest heritages. The annual Five Points JazzFest is a hats off to what is sometimes referred to as the Harlem of the West, a place where greats like Duke Ellington and Miles Davis used to play at clubs like the Rainbow Room and the Rossonian. The Black American Museum, which pays tribute to the region's strong African American culture, is tucked among its Victorian architecture. Five Points is in the middle of a revitalization as evidenced by preservation grants and the recently approved Urban Redevelopment Plan for the Welton Street Corridor.
