While Sixth Avenue may be less celebrated than other Denver streets, the lineup of unique shops between Grant and Downing streets definitely make this strip one of the city's most convenient shopping areas. One of its most charming, too: The quirky specialty stores in historic brick bungalows and storefronts from every era are almost impossible to resist. Where else can you get an old-school barber shave, stock up on medical cannabis, shop for fly-fishing gear and get your dog groomed during a short walk? Unlike Broadway, its perpendicular cousin where seemingly half the storefronts are occupied by self-consciously kitschy antique stores, or parallel Colfax, with its long stretches of nothingness, Sixth Avenue has plenty to offer in a small stretch of space. Here, in no particular order, are the ten best shops on Sixth Avenue.
