Nicknamed "RiNo," this trendy section of Denver is properly called "River North Art District." The slogan of the area is "Where art is made." Not so long ago, Brighton Blvd was a two-lane stretch road lined with abandoned warehouses and railroad tracks. Then Taxi opened on the west side of the Platte River.
Named one of the 52 Places to Visit in the U.S. by the New York Times and one of the 10 Top Cities to Visit in the U.S. by Lonely Planet, the area has its own logo, a Rhino of rainbow colors. First Friday Art Walks are near religion in this neighborhood. Literally the headquarters to early taxi cab operations, the development by Mickey Zeppelin was the most innovative industrial conversion seen yet in Denver. Old garages and abandoned buildings were transformed into smart people think space. Creative agencies
flocked here. So did art galleries. Not only were the buildings remarkably fresh, but the new business concepts introduced to the area were too with food halls—Denver Central Market and The Source, venues with multiple food vendors and small plate menus. Wildly significant NYC operations like Death and Co. opened second locations in Rino because of the possibility that had become reality in this little piece of the city.
