The Ten Best Spots for Shopping, Eating and Hanging Out on South Broadway's Antique Row
For decades Antique Row on South Broadway has been a one-stop shopping experience for people looking to fill their homes with one-of-a-kind furniture and vintage goods. This Saturday, August 9, the Antique Row Merchant's Association is hosting a big block party to show off its eclectic vendors, which have expanded from collectable sellers to include eateries, bookstores, bars and more. The area that was once known for some cranky antique dealers wants to reintroduce Denverites to the newly cheerful and vibrant collection of shops. In advance of tomorrow's festivities, we've compiled a list of our top ten places to eat, shop and hang out on Antique Row.
