Where business meets pleasure.
Welcome to West Colfax
West Colfax, part of the longest-running east-west street in the country, is a unique blend of commercial and residential blocks, possessing a personality all its own. Facing both sides of this renowned street are authentic Mexican restaurants, the infamous Lake Steam Bath Spa, and the national nonprofit youth organization, Girls Inc. In contrast, the northern border, 17th Street, looks out upon Sloan’s Lake, a beautiful wildlife habitat complete with soccer field, flower gardens, lighted tennis court, two playgrounds, and opportunities for boating and fishing.
Between Colfax and 17th Street lies a diverse blend of single-family dwellings and modest ranch-style homes as well as the in-progress St. Anthony’s redevelopment, which will turn the old hospital site into a shopping, dining and entertainment destination. At the eastern end of the neighborhood, Federal provides anything you might need, from auto parts to enchiladas and dry-cleaning to drive-through meals. Mile High Stadium—home of the Denver Broncos—as well as I-25 and 6th Avenue, two major Denver corridors, are just minutes away. A unique blend of commerce and community, West Colfax is an interesting and lively place to call home.
Don’t miss Casa Bonita—just past the neighborhood’s western border—the most entertaining Mexican restaurant around. Along with a tasty meal from below the border, you’ll watch cliff divers, cowboy shootouts, escaping gorillas, strolling mariachi bands, and more.
