Capitol Hill is the perfect neighborhood for young, active professionals, dog lovers, creatives, foodies, and cafe seekers. Although close to the epicenter of Denver's business hubs and nightlife, Cap Hill is the perfect refuge from the craziness of the city-- completely walkable/bike-able, full of parks (Cheesman!), and tons of bars, restaurants and cafes. Capitol Hill is also home to Denver's colorful music scene, with vintage theaters such as the Bluebird, Paramount, and the Ogden. If you love cozy vintage homes in a artsy and eclectic neighborhood, then Capitol Hill is a great option for you!

While Capitol Hill offers a lot by ways of bars, music, and restaurants as well as easy access to downtown and a variety of public parks the homeless population is out of control. Every alley has half a dozen to 20 people doing drugs, selling drugs, and screaming at regular people trying to access their apartments. Wading through garbage and people doing drugs may be part of the “city experience” to some but for the price you pay to live here and the number of 911 calls that never result in an officer showing up it’s not worth it. There are safer neighborhoods with more police presence and plenty to do for the same exact price.
I've resided in the Capitol Hill neighborhood for five years now. This is a wonderful area to live! It is walking/biking/boarding/public transportation to most of the exciting places in the Denver area. I've managed to live, work, and attend school in this area and it has been a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend living in this neighborhood for an exciting place to be living one's life.
