Cultures blend in historic Five Points, one of Denver's oldest and most diverse neighborhoods. The district was known as the "Harlem of the West" because it was a frequent stop for jazz greats including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis, who played clubs like the Rossonian and the Rainbow Room. The neighborhood was also mentioned repeatedly in Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
Today, historic Five Points' creativity and vibrancy live on in a fascinating fusion of old and new. Visitors can stop in at innovative coffeehouses and craft breweries, visit museums telling stories from the past or eat at beloved soul food and barbecue institutions.
Restaurants: Restaurants in this neighborhood serve up some of the best Caribbean, soul food, catfish and barbecue you'll find anywhere. And, in case you were wondering, the area gets its name from the five-point intersection at Washington Street, 27th Street, 26th Avenue and Welton Street. This was too much to fit on the sign marking this busy streetcar stop, so it was shortened to Five Points in 1881.
