North Capitol Hill, a.k.a. Uptown, is a charming central Denver hood with single-family homes, apartments, and skyscraper views. Much of Uptown was once owned by Henry Brown, an Ohio man who used the Homestead Act of 1862 to claim the area known today as Cap Hill and North Cap Hill, architecting the grid structure of the streets we know today. Perfect for young professionals, Uptown is highly walkable with incredible food and iconic entertainment along the bustling 17th and Colfax Avenues. Bordered by Five Points, CBD, Capitol Hill, and City Park West, Uptown girls and guys can catch shows at the historic Fillmore Auditorium, sample the various eateries and bars, and take in the centerpieces of Denver.
Just to the north of the Colorado State Capitol lies the neighborhood of North Capitol Hill. Most locals refer to it as Uptown due to the rapid rise in elevation heading into the neighborhood on 17th Avenue when leaving downtown. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and entertainment destinations and acts as a lower-rise extension of downtown. The hospital complex is adjacent to the neighborhood boundary created by Park Avenue, cutting through the northeast corner of the neighborhood.
