With an eclectic mix of historic homes and a dynamic arts scene, Capitol Hill Denver is one of Denver’s most lively neighborhoods.

Part coffee shop, part cocktail lounge, Hudson Hill breaks the mold with its melding of two distinct offerings. The interior is casual enough to create a low-key coffee house feel, but with modern industrial-style edges, it also easily morphs into an upscale lounge. A traditional coffeehouse menu is filled with standards, but also includes a couple of more adventurous offerings like Mimosas or Bloody Marys. Homemade pastries and light snacks round out the menu, making a stop at Hudson Hill perfect any time of day or night.
As one of the trailblazers in the movement to roast beans locally, Pablo’s Coffee is a Denver favorite. Established in 1995, Pablo’s Coffee has made a name for itself as one of the city’s most venerable coffee purveyors, and its Capitol Hill location continues the tradition. Warm finishes such as a beetle kill pine coffee bar and rich walnut tables creates a cozy spot to relax and read, or meet up with friends. Over a dozen whole bean selections are served every day including their signature blends, African and Arabian blends, and Indonesian varieties.
