As Denver gets bigger, its days are getting longer

We’re living in a city open for business 20 hours a day. Could it be 24? Should it be?

It’s 2 a.m. in LoDo.

For about 20 minutes, the sidewalks have become steadily more crowded with partiers — some happy, some angry, some stable, some stumbling. They’re lining up outside food trucks as drunk hunger, that special brand of hunger, rumbles in their stomachs. They’re walking in circles and craning their necks impatiently, trying to find the ride they’ve summoned among the mass of thoroughly gridlocked traffic.

In a 24-hour city, this scene doesn’t happen.

A sizable new bouldering gym is set to open this year in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood.

“The Spot” is moving into 1235 Delaware Street this summer, a few blocks southwest of Civic Center, according to a news release. The company’s original gym will stay open in Boulder, too.
