Our History

Colorado natives and college roommates opened The District in the summer of 2014 — just blocks away from their childhood stomping grounds. Nestled in the heart of one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, the restaurant combines an eclectic culinary edge while embracing the historic districts surrounding it. The District encompasses the hard work and play of the Park Avenue-Humboldt Street District, the thriving nostalgia of the Wyman District, and the romantic ambiance of the City Park District. 

In 2018, one of the original operating owners, Kerry Condon, took over the business solo. He revamped the menu by building on the popular marketplace and food hall concepts of the day. 

The District partnered with Denver’s iconic Little Man Ice Cream and introduced the Big Truck Ice Cream concept. The Big Truck Ice Cream exclusively scoops Little Man Ice Cream flavors daily. 

Condon also brought in the Sauced Smokehouse concept. He partnered with local barbeque masters to perfect altitude-adjusted BBQ in Denver’s high, dry climate. Sauced Smokehouse is a staple on the dine-in, to-go, and catering menus. The melt-in-your-mouth slow-cooked BBQ is served naked with six sauces made from scratch for guests to choose for their BBQ plate.

The District made a name for itself as a popular brunch destination. It's been voted Denver’s best bloody mary and bottomless mimosa bar. In response to guest requests in 2019, The District started serving brunch seven days a week until 3 pm. 

The District enjoys being a neighborhood spot for locals and out-of-town guests to experience a fun, comfortable atmosphere. We pride ourselves on a great selection of craft beer, handmade cocktails and wine, as well as a menu that offers a little something for everyone. 

During the coronavirus pandemic, The District continues to honor our mission to provide our guests with a memorable experience with quality food and drinks in a welcoming, safe, and fun atmosphere! During the city and state stay-at-home order, we remained safely open, offering to-go, curbside, and delivery. We are now serving guests six feet apart on our patio, dining room, and bar. We ask for the support of our neighborhood and community, knowing that now, more than ever, small businesses need your local support to all get through this together. 

Over the restaurant's six-year reign, we are proud to continue adding to the history of Seventeenth Avenue. We look forward to welcoming guests in the weeks and months ahead and, as always, aiming to satisfy customer’s cravings by combining the perfection of flavors, safety, and ambiance. Stop on by!
