Known for its rich jazz scene in the early 20th century, the River North District has gone through a series of transformations throughout its history. Currently enjoying its Renaissance, RiNo has become one of the most happening neighborhoods in Denver. Old warehouses and historic buildings now house trendy restaurants, bars and boutiques with an abundance of craft breweries sprinkled throughout the neighborhood. Galleries and live music venues also contribute to the truly cultural feel of RiNo, where everywhere you turn there’s new street art to be seen. Alleyways have become opportunities for immersive art experiences, so be sure to keep your eyes wide-open while walking through this colorful area. It’s hard to miss all the mesmerizing murals that have become a staple of RiNo’s character.
Find bazaars, the popular Denver Central Market or do your own personal brewery tour through this very walkable neighborhood. Live music can be found almost every night, and jazz club Nocturne acts as an ode to RiNo’s early jazz years. The River North Neighborhood has adapted its nickname by embracing a bright orange rhino to symbolize its streets. If you see an orange rhino, you know an art gallery is nearby.
