1. Shop

A shopper’s paradise with more than 300 shops and boutiques, you’ll find the best of both worlds with indoor and outdoor shopping options featuring world-renowned luxury brands and locally owned boutiques.

Cherry Creek Shopping Center is home to more than 160 stores and the largest collection of luxury brands in the region, including Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Tiffany & Co., along with three department stores — Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s.

Featuring Denver’s highest concentration of locally owned stores, Cherry Creek North, features one-of-a-kind treasures. Much like the eclectic mix of national brands and boutique shops, the streets offer both an approachable and comfortable atmosphere with a sophisticated twist. The neighborhood’s independent and international retailers offer tailor-made experiences for each visitor and shopper. 

2. Stay

With five boutique hotels, when you check in, you’ll get more than just a room key. There is a place to stay for everyone. Each hotel has its own unique personality with amenities to match, from a gear-stocked garage for your outdoor adventuring to back-door speakeasies with mind-bending cocktails.

Book the Isabella Penthouse Suite at the Clayton Hotel & Members Club for the ultimate overnight featuring two stories, a six-person dining room and impeccable views of the Rockies. Or choose a terrace room at Halcyon featuring patios covered in comfy couches — a perfect place to unwind after a day of shopping.

Over at The Jacquard, Kisbee on the Roof has a drink menu to die for and a pool that feels straight out of South Beach. Hotel Clio is the newest addition to the neighborhood and is home to Toro Latin Kitchen & Lounge, a Denver institution complete with ceviche-making classes. The Moxy Denver Cherry Creek’s complimentary bikes and beer garden are ideal for those wanting to maximize their Denver experience.

3. Savor

More than 75 restaurants and cafes ranging from laid-back lunch spots, spacious patios and chic bars to legendary family-owned establishments and meals crafted by world-renowned chefs call Cherry Creek home. Indulge in Chinese, French, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Mexican and American cuisines for every occasion, be that a white tablecloth celebration or a fast-casual meal in between shopping trips.

Did you bring your pooch? Cherry Creek has plenty of dog-friendly patios! Planning a party? A variety of area restaurants have private dining rooms meant to celebrate life’s big moments.
