While Cherry Creek may technically be in Denver, it’s almost its own micro-city. Located just five minutes from downtown, Cherry Creek hosts the largest and most diverse shopping space in the nation between Chicago and San Francisco! Add in an abundance of amenities, access to the walkable/bikeable Cherry Creek Trail, high-scoring Bromwell Elementary School, and a surplus of new hotels for visitors – it’s easy to see why the area has become the in-demand Denver niche that it is.
In fact, Cherry Creek saw last year’s highest percentage change in home sale prices of any Denver neighborhood—a shocking 25% increase that pushed the price of the average single-family home above $1 million.
Where to Eat & Drink:
What are you in the mood for? Cherry Creek North has been privy to an influx of luxury dining destinations recently, like Narrative, Le Bilboquet, and Quality Italian. But the area isn’t limited to high-end fare. More approachable bites like Fortune Wok To Table or Curtis Park Delicatessen abound.
For after-hours libations, enjoy an elevated happy hour on the patio at Elway’s steakhouse, or partake of some crafted cocktails at B&GC (the subterranean speakeasy at the Halcyon. Note: They’re currently closed due to COVID-19 regulations, but keep them on your future visit list). For a more laid back drink experience, there’s always Cherry Creek Beer Garden and Cherry Cricket.
One of our favorite places to empty our wallets is the ever-evolving Cherry Creek Shopping Center. The ground floor play zone has been a long-time favorite for families. Take a leisurely stroll down the wide sidewalks of Cherry Creek North while exploring some of our other favorite shopping spots: Pay a visit to A Line Boutique for trendsetting ladies’ fashion, and Anjevine Custom Jewelry for something sparkly.
Even when you live in one of Denver’s most coveted areas, an escape can sometimes be in order. Thankfully, our boutique hotel scene is gradually becoming something to write home about. Many of the trendiest venues are found right here. The Halcyon, for instance, boasts a rooftop pool and gear garage. The Jacquard also has an amazing rooftop pool and Peloton bikes for getting some exercise.
If you’re hoping to bring your furry friends along, don’t miss your chance to stay at Moxy Denver Cherry Creek.
