LoDo





Lower downtown is what we're getting at with the LoDo acronym. Flush with restaurants and bars and right next to the light rail station, LoDo is a popular destination for hungry, thirsty Denverites.

The city's coolest bookstore (the Tattered Cover) and its oldest brewpub (the Wynkoop Brewing Company) are within two blocks of each other.
