Changing Denver is the podcast about our city's physical spaces, how we make them and how they make us. This episode tells the story of Hop Alley, both the RiNo restaurant and the historic spot to which it owes its name.
The August edition of Changing Denver tries a new Chinese restaurant in RiNo, Hop Alley, before delving into the origins of its name, and why Denver has no Chinatown.
