Two businesses offering booze, bites and more are on the brink of opening their doors in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe.

Why it matters: Their debuts reflect rapid growth in an area that's at risk of losing its character and pushing longtime residents out.

  • But the incoming business owners appear committed to honoring the signature feel of the historic neighborhood.

Details: A new women-owned concept called Town Hall Collaborative at 525 Santa Fe Dr., will provide a multi-use event space with a bar, stage, food trucks and a makerspace for classes and workshops.

  • The more than 7,000-square-foot-space is centered around bringing people together looking for connection, creativity and fun.

A wine bar, dubbed Room for Friends, is also nearing completion at 846 Santa Fe Dr., after its zoning permit was approved last week.

  • The lounge, owned by a local husband and wife duo, will serve wine by the glass and flight, a few select beers, as well as small bites like charcuterie boards.

What to watch: Both businesses plan to open in May, each announced online.
