Jason Ungate's Tabletop Tap arcade and bar opened its doors in Englewood toward the end of summer in 2017. Before he brought his business to Englewood, he was living in the city six years ago — an area he says has drastically changed since his days as an Englewood resident.
“It's cool to see how this area has transformed over a handful of years. Six years ago, there was nothing here,” said Ungate. “It's just nice to see Englewood thrive a bit more.”
Ungate has received support from the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce, an organization that aims to help businesses in Englewood succeed. David Carroll, who was named the executive director of the chamber earlier this month, said the organization is targeting three sectors — businesses that exist, start-up businesses and businesses that are looking to expand, or relocate. For businesses looking to expand or relocate, Carroll wants the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce to show them the value of what Englewood has to offer.
“Everyone I talk to in Englewood sees a lot of opportunity here for growth and new business. Our location is not far from downtown Denver, and we have a lot of mobility options, whether that's riding our bike trails, or the light rail,” said Carroll. “Those kind of mobility options make (Englewood) an attractive space.”
Business owners such as Ungate, who work with the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce, receive assistance with developing a business plan and opportunities to network with other business owners.
Englewood has watched new businesses enter the city recently including One Barrel, a wine bar and restaurant, Aki Sushi and Samadhi Yoga and Peace Cellar.
“We feel like (Englewood) is a hidden gem of Denver. We've watched it grow and evolve,” said Andora Freedom, owner of Samadhi Yoga and Peace Cellar. “Who wouldn't want to be down here? It's like the newest hot spot of Denver.”
