Coffee at the Point is one of those businesses. It opened in 2010 and strives to put Five Points back on the map of hip and trendy places to be.
From coffee, to gourmet sandwiches, to wine tasting... Coffee on the Point echoes what city leaders hope will be a bright future for the area which has had its ups and downs. Once known as the "Harlem of the West" for its popular jazz clubs, Five Points had a bad bought with drugs and violence in the late 1950's.
Tracy Winchester, with the Five Points Business District, says over the decades, Five Points has transformed itself from a streetcar suburb to the heart of African American Denver.
