- What's the difference between downtown Denver and "lower downtown"? More than just geography. Life in LoDo (north of Larimer Street) is a bit edgier than downtown: more bars and clubs than restaurants, more independent shops than chain stores. This is the place for nightlife, with trendy clubs and boutique hotels. In 2006, the cast of MTV's "The Real World" stayed in LoDo and visited nightclubs in the immediate area, documented on the series. On the western edge of LoDo, historic Larimer Square has its own upbeat vibe with a slew of unique shops, eateries and winebars. Locals love The Market, a perpetual favorite for coffee and hanging out, plus The Capital Grille steakhouse. The place to catch touring standup comedians is longtime Larimer Square icon, ComedyWorks comedy club. When Larimer Square throws a block party, everyone's invited and everyone shows up.
