New in the District

Bishops Cuts + Color Opening in June

We’re excited to welcome Bishops Cuts + Color to the Bluebird District! Here are a few words from the owners:

Bishops will open in June at 3825 E Colfax and offers a full menu of cuts, color, straight razor shaves, and facial hair grooming that will empower local residents to feel more confident in their individuality.

With a counter-cultural heritage, a contemporary aesthetic, and openness to all-ages and all-genders, Bishops is serious about hair and irreverent about most other things. This is more than a place to get a haircut, it’s a full-on experience. The Bluebird District is a perfect location for Bishops’ ethos that believes that haircuts can be transformational and differences should be celebrated.

Seth Roberts and Alison Laevey have lived in the neighborhood for 25 years and are thrilled to see Colfax evolving as a destination for amazing amenities – acclaimed eateries and entertainment and other eclectic businesses. We’re excited to support local organizations from schools to nonprofits and community events.

Join us for our Grand Opening on June 8 for style and prizes. Join us sooner if you have mad cut and color skills. We’re hiring! Email your resume to lowry50@bishops.co to be a part of the party. In the meantime you can check us out at our Lowry shop at 200 Quebec Street. Hope to see you soon!

Colfax Museum Now Open

If you ever wished there was a museum dedicated to Colfax, wish no longer. Jonny Barber, long-time Colfax lover and historian, opened the Colfax Museum in November 2017. Right now the museum is housed inside Ed Moore’s Florist at 6101 East Colfax Ave. Barber hopes to eventually move to a bigger location with an outdoor space to showcase some the street’s famous neon signs.

Crosswalk Art Adds More Color to East Colfax

Crossing East Colfax Avenue just got a little more interesting. Denver Public Works made part of the street car-free over the weekend so people could paint the crosswalks at Steele and Adams with birds, guitars, musical notes, and a stylized design of the word “Colfax.”

The project is a collaboration between the Bluebird Business Improvement District and Department of Arts and Venues, which manages the “P.S. You Are Here” grant program, “a citywide creative placemaking and neighborhood revitalization program that cultivates collaborative, community-driven, outdoor projects in Denver’s public spaces.”
