Uptown Neighborhood
Tavern Uptown is located in Denver's Uptown on the Hill, the area bounded by Broadway, York, Colfax and 23rd Avenue. The structures in Uptown represent Denver's boom period from 1880 to 1893. During the late 1800s, the neighborhood's architecture was among Denver's most fashionable, with houses built primarily in the romantic Queen Anne style. Today, much of Uptown's impressive collection of single and multi-family structures remains as beautifully restored homes, offices, restaurants and entertainment facilities.
