LoHi is short for the "Lower Highlands" neighborhood located just west of the central downtown area. Technically speaking, it's the neighborhood that is sandwiched between LoDo and the Highlands, or for those who are more familiar with the streets of Denver, the area that extends south of Platte Street, across I-25 and blends into 32nd Street. 

 

LoHi has quickly become your Denver destination for some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The overall vibe is more San Francisco than Denver, and the area's hills certainly add to that feel. Those hills also lend to some of the best views of the Downtown area you will find anywhere.
