Colfax Avenue is the longest commercial street in the U.S.A. after first appearing on Denver maps in 1868 as a dirt road and then becoming a bustling trolley route in The Mile High City in the 1890s. Today, the street is lined with an eclectic mix of eateries, bars, brewpubs and shops, as well as entertainment and live music venues like the Fillmore Auditorium, the Ogden and the Bluebird theaters. Don’t miss local favorites — the Tattered Cover Bookstore housed in the historic Lowenstein Theatre, the Twist and Shout record store, Voodoo Dougnut, the Sie FilmCenter for independent films and gyros at a Greek Town diner.

Montclair, which is bounded by East Colfax Avenue to the north, East Sixth Avenue to the south, Monaco Parkway to the west and Quebec Street to the east, sprouted up more than 100 years ago. Baron Walter von Richthofen, uncle of the famed Red Baron, was its first developer, in 1885. There is no one way to describe the neighborhood architecturally. A drive down any street in Montclair offers a wide range of architecture, including Queen Anne, foursquare, Tudor and ranch.
Passers-by can still see the past in the Richthofen Castle at 12th Avenue and Pontiac Street and the Molkery Building at East 12th Avenue and Newport Street. Originally the town hall, the Molkery is now restored and rented out for weddings and parties. But there’s also a glimpse into Montclair’s future. Developers are replacing brick shoebox homes with minimansions.
