Denver Neighborhood Diary: Santa Fe Art District

Dear Denver Diary,

After one visit to this neighborhood, we’ll plan on seeing you back here every first Friday of every month. That’s right, we’re taking you to the Santa Fe Art District. This area of Denver is extremely culture rich with Hispanic roots and the beauty really shows through the murals, restaurants and galleries. Known as the “First Friday Art Walks,” Denver Metro residents flock to the Santa Fe Art District on the first Friday of every month to check out the abundance of art exhibitions offering free entries, open late to the public. And for those serious art collectors, they get the chance at a first look at the “Third Friday Collector’s Preview.”

The Santa Fe Art District is loaded with some very desirable commercial real estate. Indulge in a little Latin-inspirited architecture in this area, with all the classic structures coated with vibrant colors and some stunning painted murals. For an innovative entrepreneur or a talented art curator, a live/work space (mixed use property) could have the potential for great success. 

Find somewhere to eat, drink or play all day in this neighborhood. Santa Fe is your go-to for authentic Mexican cuisine. Choose from El Noa Noa, El Taco De Mexico or .Santiago’s Stop by.Crazy Mountain Brewery for your cold, local beer selection. Challenge your friends at The Board Game Republic, the local board game pub. Co-owned and operated by artists, Joe Maxx Coffee Co is the perfect place to relax study, work and of course to get that caffeine fix.

“Loved working with this client. She was willing to do whatever it took to get her home into showing shape, and always communicated with such positivity and gratitude that it was just a joy to work with her. “

“This family had such vision for their home and put in some major sweat equity after purchase. They gutted their kitchen, put in all new flooring and built a gigantic deck out the back to enjoy their large, private yard. And, I love hearing stories about their life in their new neighborhood and enjoy getting invites to the many community celebrations.”
