"Part of what makes Denver Great - Social, Cultural Venues - a whole street full!"

16th Street, more commonly called the 16th Street Mall is a great area to walk around, grab a drink, sit for dinner, shop, wander, and people watch. The 16th St Mall ride is free, and runs between the Broadway bus station and Union Station. It stops every block, so you just hop on and off at your leisure. At 16th and Arapahoe is my favorite venue to catch a show in all of Denver. Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret is in the basement of the Clock Tower, and is like stepping into a movie with it's plush booths and small, intimate setting with a small stage. In the summer time, there are pianos up and down the street, so you can just sit down and plunk out a tune! It's such a fun area of town and makes me grateful for the ways that Denver serves it's citizens :)

Ryan Yes, same Lannie. She doesn't perform there often, but take a look at http://lannies.com. They have so many great shows!
Ryan Never heard of it... but that's no surprise. I don't get out much and sort of live under a rock :)

"Looking for culture, here you go"

The 16th street mall, is a street where you can find all sorts of dynamics of people. There are children, and families, couples, and people just wandering the street. Being able to walk in beautiful downtown Denver and see all different walks of lifes, and shop at the same time is a great thing. It can be pretty busy at times, but, that's just a part of the whole experience.
