Platt Park Reviews

All Categories
Platt Park is an active and close-knit community surrounded by small businesses, great conveniences, and parks. Platt Park provides something for everyone from bars and boutiques to restaurants and coffee shops where you can enjoy a hot cup of coffee and your favorite book. Houses of new and old surround the small business haven, making everything just a quick walk away. Walk less than a mile east and you will find yourself at Denver's Washington Park, the perfect place to enjoy life with a run, multiple sports, the quiet pond to sit around or paddle boat, and enough nature to make it a short-term escape. For the time you need a little nightlife the Tavern, Pub on Pearl, and the Lincoln Roadhouse all have you covered but if you're looking to head into the heart of the city make your way just 2 blocks over to the Lousiana- Pearl Station and hop on the 15 minute light rail ride to put you within walking distance of Market Street.
Review Platt Park
The Sushi Den is located on Pearl Street and is, in my opinion, and the opinion of many others, the best sushi restaurant in the city, rivaled only by its neighbor, Izakaya Den, which shares the same owner. The service is excellent, the food is fantastic, and the mood is nice. The clothing boutiques, Melrose and Madison, Gracies, Paiges and Common Threads are cute stores, that are slightly expensive, but have great quality of clothes. Whole Foods is right down the street as well, which is a highly regarded grocery store.
The weather is great. Its sunny 300 days a year, the grass is green due to a good amount of rainfall, and there is little risk of significantly damaging natural disasters. The snow in the winter is actually quite beautiful, and because of th every sunny climate, snow doesn't stick around for too long.
