The Atmosphere is...like a sultry butcher shop. Seriously - it is so HOT that even their oversized ice cubes are sexy. The vintage memorabilia peppering the dining room plays perfectly against the modern lighting and chef-inspired eats. And the view! Killer. Again, all we can think to say is "sexy."

What to Drink/Eat: Go with friends and figure out a way to eat it all. If that fails, you can't go wrong with the bacon and squash risotto or

Stapleton may not be on your radar right now, but with its wealth of custom rowhomes, duplexes and single family homes in a gorgeous prairie setting just minutes from Downtown Denver, we think it warrants a second look! Here is what we love about Stapleton...

1. Perfect for families. From the stroller-friendly sidewalks to the great array of schools, it's no wonder that families are flocking to Stapleton.

2. Focus on fitness and the outdoors! Stapleton is full of pocket parks, greenbelts, open space, rec centers, walking/bike paths, community pools, dog parks and playgrounds. We especially love Central Park. This is a place to get your Colorado on. 

3. Northfield Shopping Center. We love the outdoor shopping experiences around Denver, and
