River North (RiNo) Denver Girls Trip Weekend Getaway

Nicknamed “RiNo,” the trendy River North Art District features contemporary art galleries and hip concert venues in revamped industrial buildings. Food halls include Denver Central Market and The Source, a buzzy indoor venue with eclectic products and a bar for small plates and craft beer. Known for its colorful murals, Upper Larimer Street also has cocktail lounges, brewpubs with patios and late-night food trucks.

RiNo or the River North Arts District, is where “art is made”, boasting historic warehouses and factory buildings that are home to everything from music venues, restaurants, breweries, and a plethora of art galleries and studios.

Because this area is so popular to Denver locals and visitors alike, we crafted this ultimate guide to the neighborhood. Whether you’ve lived here all of your life, or are just experiencing it for the first time, RiNo is a great place to spend a day—the only challenge is deciding what to see first!

You don’t have to go far from The Source Hotel to dig into RiNo’s great shopping and food scene. The hotel expanded The Source Market, an 1880s foundry-turned-market hall with 25 food and retail vendors across the two adjacent properties. For dinner, drop by Safta, the brilliant homage to the Middle East’s culinary landscape by James Beard Award-winning Chef Alon Shaya. Wood-fired pita (baked just a few steps away from the table) soaks up the flavors of Israel, Yemen, Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Palestine, and Greece. After dinner, enjoy a nightcap at Isabel, known for pairing fresh-pressed juices with a variety of spirits. If you’re with a group, try the Cusco Cup — a mix of pisco, Fernet Branca, strawberry, lemon, cucumber, ginger, and mint – enough for six to eight cocktails.

While we say “Mural Hunting”, tracking down spectacular art murals in RiNo isn’t exactly hard to do. Local artists have adorned the walls of this neighborhood with colorful and innovative street art that brings creative expression well beyond its galleries’ walls. We highly recommend paying a visit to “Reverberations” on the east side of Larimer, between 25th and 26th Streets, and the “Larimer Boy and Girl” located at 27th and Larimer for a true taste of Denver street art.

The Forney Museum of Transportation began over 60 years ago with a single 1921 Kissel but soon grew into a massive collection of cars, buggies, motorcycles, steam locomotives, planes and so much more. If you want to learn even more about the types of transportation and their history located in the museum, we recommend taking one of their guided tours.

When the Larimer Lounge opened in 2002, the surrounding neighborhood was basically a warehouse district. Since then, both the iconic music venue and RiNo have grown into incredibly popular destinations for Denver locals and visitors alike. Almost every night there’s a band performing at Larimer Lounge—from local rockers to nationally known artists.
