The Baker neighborhood is a diverse, dynamic neighborhood located in the urban core of Denver, Colorado. First plotted and developed in the 1870’s, Baker has played a central role in the history of Denver. Today Baker enjoys a number of qualities and characteristics that make it a vibrant urban neighborhood. These include a diverse urban population, preserved historic homes, proximity to Broadway’s Main Street development which promises diverse shopping, casual and fine dining, an array of entertainment, and easy access to mass transit. Baker is one of the more eclectic and historic neighborhoods in Denver. It has been positively affected by the resurgence of successful businesses on the Broadway corridor.

The west side of the neighborhood boasts the Santa Fe Arts District. This is the hub of the Denver art scene and boasts the largest concentration of art galleries in Colorado, featuring more than 40 galleries, shops, and restaurants. On the first Friday of every month, galleries attract lively crowds when they open their doors to the public for the First Friday Art Walk. Baker is the home of the Queen Anne Victorian, and has been designated as a historic district. You can find many brightly painted Victorians, bungalows, and duplexes.
