Doing Business on the Mall
As the commercial heart of Downtown Denver, the 16th Street Mall is a main attraction for a rapidly growing number of visitors, workers, residents and conventioneers. The Mall is filled with outdoor cafes, renovated historic office buildings, sparkling glass-walled skyscrapers, shops, restaurants and retail stores.
The Downtown Denver BID supports communication and marketing programs and initiatives that keep property owners, partners, retailers, restaurants and hotels informed about all things happening Downtown and in the 120-block District.
The 16th Street Mall is a premier destination in Downtown Denver for visitors, employees, and residents alike. It is the commercial heart of Denver’s center city, which makes it a perfect place to host your special or sampling activity. With millions of people visiting Downtown's main street each year, the Mall is a powerful venue to promote your business, cause or activity.
The 16th Street Mall features an ever-changing mix of eclectic street food, retail vendors and sampling and special events. The vending program, managed by the Downtown Denver BID, supports an assortment of local and national businesses.
The Downtown Denver BID leases the use of the 16th Street Mall right-of-way for the use of Sidewalk Cafés adjacent to restaurants. Restaurants wishing to apply for a Sidewalk Café permit have a specific set of rules and regulations determined by the BID and the City and County of Denver that they must follow in order to use the right-of-way for the Sidewalk Cafes.
