If you live in Denver, you know that we’re pretty well known for our neighborhoods. From boutiques to brunch, and even tattoo shops and ice creameries, Denver houses many different ‘hoods that each offer unique dining, shopping other establishments that are a must to check out.
Abby Sparks Jewelry is particularly proud of our neighborhood: the Highlands in Denver, Colorado. The Highlands is a hub for many different destinations, including our custom jewelry studio, one of the most iconic ice cream shops in the U.S., and a hamburger joint that has ravishing reviews.
Here are 5 places in the Highlands of Denver that you must check out:
Not only is Little Man Ice Cream located just down the street from Abby Sparks Jewelry’s studio, its headquarters is on the first floor of our building. As if the temptation wasn’t strong enough, we smell fresh brownies, cones and other goodies being made daily, including Little Man’s famous ice cream. Appearing on TV shows and being a staple for practically everyone in Colorado, especially on date nights, this place is worth whatever wait there is in line.
If you’re looking for a pre-ice cream meal, there are many options in the Highlands. However, a good burger never goes out of style and we know just the place: Highland Tap and Burger. Whether you want a classic burger or you’re looking for something edgy, Highland Tap is our go-to when we need a meat-fixing.
For many years, Denver wasn’t known for its fashion scene. Although we may never get to LA’s or NYC’s level, Denver is on the rise. One of the city’s main influencers is a boutique that gets its fashion straight from those big fashion cities, and caters it toward our Denver style-seekers: Goldyn. Owned by a local whose style has painted the pages of many Denver magazines and blogs, Goldyn is our go-to spot for anything fashion. Clothing for him, something for us, it’s a favorite not only in the Highlands but all of Colorado.
Abby Sparks Jewelry specializes in custom engagement rings and wedding rings, so it’s only fitting that we are constantly aware of bridal trends, as well as the top bridal boutiques in Denver. a&bé Bridal Shop is a favorite because there’s truly something for everyone. Traditional brides are still relevant but a huge trend in bridal is being different. Not every bride wants the same thing, and this shop offers something for even the most unique bride.
We love our clients but sometimes we just need a drink after work. Our go-to spot is Postino in LoHi. A bottle of wine is affordable, plus there’s an extensive menu of cocktails, happy hour bites and more. Postino is a short walk from Abby Sparks Jewelry headquarters, and looking out from the patio is a picturesque view of our beautiful city of Denver, Colorado.
