Though not an official Denver neighborhood according to the city, the Ballpark area around Coors Field has made a name for itself in recent years as more restaurants have moved in. This map centers on the portion bounded by Blake Street, 20th Street, Lawrence Street, and Broadway, bringing a variety of dining options in Ballpark.

There seems to be a little something for everyone from empanadas at the new Lazo's to burgers with an amazing roof top patio view at Ignite and from mac 'n cheese pizza at Ian's Pizza to bright and modern Thai food at Aloy Modern Thai.

Keep in mind that the places listed here are organized geographically. If we missed a gem, a bar or a restaurant that stands out in this area, send us an email down the tipline and we'll consider adding it.

Ian's Pizza

Copy Link

Keep this Wisconsin-born pie shop in mind for those tiimes when a mac 'n cheese pizza sounds like a good idea. Recent quirky toppings include the gyro pizza and the taco pizza.

iFish + Ramen

Copy Link

A great spot for an after-work gathering, iFish is all about sushi and casual Japanese-inspired bites. Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and all day Friday through Sunday.

The first location of what is now a breakfast and brunch mini-empire still draws in the crowds, especially on weekends. A selection of creative pancake flavors such as pineapple upside-down is served alongside savory options ranging from eggs Benedict to corned beef hash.
