Located just a mile northeast of the heart of downtown Denver, Five Points is one of Denver's oldest and most unique neighborhoods. Five Points is an intersection where Denver's downtown streets meet with the first suburbs of the city.
Known for housing some of Denver's most prominent leaders (mayors, governors, business executives), Five Points is where you'll find blocks of old-Victorian houses and upscale lofts. With a jazz-infused culture and history, Five Points hosted some of the biggest names in Jazz and is still where locals dine in restaurants serving some of the best soul food, Caribbean, and BBQ around.
Focusing on building the economy and vibrancy of the city, Five Points' residents are excited about the services and businesses that continue to change the area.
The name Five Points refers to the colliding of the neighborhoods along Washington Street, 26th Avenue, 27th Street and Welton Street, which is where the grid of East Denver meets the streets of downtown, giving the area a five point connection.
