As Denver’s leading luxury real estate team, we know that a home’s location is key. In this post, we reveal the best neighborhoods for sports enthusiasts and entertainment aficionados, ensuring you’ll never miss a moment of excitement in the city.

Downtown Denver & McGregor Square

Downtown Denver is one of the best neighborhoods in the American West to access a wealth of entertainment in such a short radius. Residents can easily walk, bike, drive, or utilize the Light Rail to catch a performance at Empower Field at Mile High, Ball Arena, Denver Center for the Performing Arts & Coors Field. These venues offer an abundance of entertainment including sporting events, concerts, musicals, and theater performances that offer a diverse mix of entertainment that is enjoyed by residents and guests visiting the Mile High City alike.
One of the most loved and “alive” neighborhoods in the Downtown Denver area is Lower Downtown, also affectionately known as LoDo. LoDo is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the community boasting one of the largest original commercial building collections in the American West, highlighting its original architecture from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These beautiful buildings now host a myriad of robust eateries, nightlife spots, shops, and residences that are practically “next door” to Denver’s entertainment venues.
One particular area added to the LoDo scene in 2021, McGregor Square, gives a whole new meaning to entertainment accessibility! Right next door to Coors Field and adorned with a 17,000 sqft outdoor entertainment plaza designed to host restaurants, screenings of local games, and show live concerts, this spot is the hub that ties the downtown scene and sports enthusiasts together. Designed to resemble the beauty of the nineteenth-century neighborhood, this area is the perfect blend of old with new and incorporates entertainment, residential living, and guest hosting in one unique spot, making it a desirable location for sports and entertainment enthusiasts who are looking to enjoy the LoDo area, outdoors and celebrate their love of entertainment!
