This historic neighborhood is less than 2 miles away from downtown Denver and spans the area between Broadway and Santa Fe Drive, loosely to the north of I-25. Baker was established in the late 1800’s and has developed into a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood. Today, early 1900’s Queen Anne style homes, many beautifully maintained and updated, sit next to newly constructed homes that portray a contemporary-vintage feel. Many of the Victorian homes in Baker feature architectural elements such as wraparound front porches, stain glass windows and high ceilings.
Baker is home to many artists, professionals, young families and hip singles. Local landmarks include The Mayan Theatre, built in 1930, and Blue Bonnet restaurant. The commercial area along Broadway, usually referred to as SoBo (South Broadway) offers a great variety of nightspots, art galleries and studios, performing arts centers, music venues, coffee houses, fusion of restaurants and independent shops.
Because of its central location travel in and out of Denver is a breeze with access to the freeways, light rail, bus lines and bike trails all within minutes from your doorstep.
The Baker neighborhood has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1985. Baker is part of the Baker Historic Neighborhood Association (BHNA) focusing on restoring and revamping historical sites and neighborhood areas.
