Platt Park

Platt Park

Platt Park is centrally located just south of Wash Park and I-25 and nearby Louisiana/Pearl light rail station. It is named after the picturesque Platt Park, a beautiful green space that serves as the neighborhood's centerpiece. Residents enjoy a pedestrian-friendly environment with easy access to a variety of amenities. It exudes charm and surrounds South Pearl Street, its main commercial drag where residents enjoy its popular farmers’ market (South Pearl Street Farmers Market) and an abundance top-rated restaurants and more. This walkable strip is the heartbeat of the Platt Park neighborhood - you'll find a lively atmosphere with a wide array of local shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. It is a popular destination for both residents and visitors alike, providing a lively hub for shopping, dining, and community events.

The neighborhood includes Craftsman bungalows, modern renos and duplexes, and Victorians that stretch all the way to South Broadway. Platt Park also provides several parks and outdoor spaces for recreational activities. Along with the aforementioned Platt Park itself, residents can explore nearby Washington Park, which offers expansive green lawns, sports fields, jogging paths, and a popular boathouse on Smith Lake.

Platt Park's location provides convenient access to downtown Denver and other nearby neighborhoods, making it an attractive choice for individuals and families seeking a balance between urban amenities and a tight-knit community atmosphere.


Sushi Den + Izakaya Den - Brothers Yasu and Toshi Kizaki founded Sushi Den in 1984. Known for some of the freshest fish in Colorado and consistently, award-winning cuisine in Denver. They also host "Chef’s Table" which is meant for adult “Foodies” who are open to all types of dishes. The Chef curates the "Best of the Daily Catch" and pairs with sake for these private dinners. Sushi Den was established first and then came its sister restaurant, Izakaya Den. Izakaya Den's refined restaurant design features a two-story kitchen and dining space designed by Roth Sheppard Architects, and is the winner of the American Architecture Award for its design and homage to its Japanese roots. I love dining on the upper level with a dirty martini in hand. 

OTOTO - Latest sibling to Sushi Den and Izakaya Den, a more casual ambience, raw bar and robata grilled skewers, as well as a premium sake list. OTOTO in Japanese means “younger brother”. Together they form a trifecta to honor Japanese cuisine on the “Den Corner” and I highly recommend all three!

Quiero Aprepas - These guys started as a food truck at the Pearl Street farmer's market. Arepas are a corn based flatbread that dates back to the Timoto Cuica tribe in Venezuela. Naturally gluten free, so always a favorite for me. They now have two locations - Platt Park and also in Avanti in the Highlands.

Jack's On Pearl - Formerly Tavern Platt Park and Jack's Uptown is now Jack's on Pearl, and a great addition to the neighborhood. It is a steakhouse where you can book a table in the reservation-only dining room and enjoy raw oysters and steak. Upstairs is on a first come, first served basis. There you'll find a rooftop patio where you can get burgers alongside margaritas and Negronis with views of the neighborhood.

Park Burger - Park Burger is a casual, family-friendly neighborhood restaurant, serving up great burgers, fries (sweet potato or truffle parmesan!), milkshakes, Colorado beers and a number of wines. You'll also find salads and veggie options. Kids are always happy with some coloring papers and toys.

Steam Espresso Bar - Platt Parks go-to place for a pour-over, Steam Espresso Bar provides Denver with some of the highest-quality roasts in the city, all sourced from ethical micro-roasters. Many customers opt for to-go cups and the space offers pleny of seating with outlets for chargers and a polished-industrial vibe (open brick walls, metallic accents and furnishings). Although this place is known for its signature roasts, the chai and matcha latte are great paired with a pastry or gluten free treat.  

Lucile’s Creole Cafe is a long-standing brunch favorite - located just off the strip - serving Creole meals such as “Cajun Breakfast” (red beans, poached eggs, hollandaise and grits) and “Eggs New Orleans” (fried eggplant, poached eggs, creole spice and hollandaise). They also have sweet beignets, and amazing Bloody Marys. Be prepared for long lines at prime dining times.

Lincoln's Roadhouse - This Blues bar and Cajun Cafe features live music on Friday + Saturday night. A good mixed crowd from the older locals to the younger crowd.



5 Green Boxes - the perfect place to pick a special greeting card or shop for gifts and home decor you didn't know you needed.

Common Threads - Family-owned consignment shop featuring high-end designer clothes & contemporary pieces.

The Ruffly Rose  - Fun floral shop with its colorful vibe.

Campus Cycles - Bike shop that carries all kinds of bikes and accepts the city's e-bike rebates.

Melrose and Madison - Women's clothing boutique.
