Why you'd want to live in Baker
Nestled snugly beside Wash Park, Denver’s Baker neighborhood offers its residents the chance to live in true Denver style. As one of Denver's quintessential - and oldest- neighborhoods, Baker has a diversity and exuberance residents can't seem to get enough of. Favored not only by young families and trendy singles, but by artists and professionals, Baker's dearth of residential options represents its inclusive nature - classic Victorians stand easily alongside newly renovated townhomes, while funky bungalows make ready neighbors with classic duplexes. With wonderful Denver landmarks - such as the Mayan Theater or the Buckhorn Exchange Tavern (home to Colorado's first liquor license)- punctuating the landscape, and trendy new favorites - such as Sweet Action Ice Cream- adding to the fabric of the neighborhood, Baker offers residents an engaging urban home paired with wonderful local history. Popular bars, restaurants, galleries and local boutique shops contribute to this modern dazzle, while its lovingly preserved historic homes & industrial buildings pay homage to its place in Denver's history. First developed in the mid-1870s, the Baker neighborhood is deeply ingrained with the city of Denver's story, and as the city has grown in recent years, Baker has seen a tremendous revitalization.
