This year has proven to be very busy around Sloan’s Lake as new businesses continue to pop up around the neighborhood. The best part? Lakehouse residents will be among the first to experience these new neighbors!

From Little Man Ice Cream launching its flagship location to the highly-anticipated opening of Odell Brewing’s second location in the state, here’s the latest around Sloan’s Lake:

Little Man Ice Cream Factory

Little Man Ice Cream has grown to be a sweet staple within the Denver community and recently opened its new store “The Factory” in early July. Complete with a Willy Wonka-themed tasting room that features a conveyer belt that transports ice cream and goodies overhead, loyal followers of the ice cream maven can also get the same treats served at other locations from scoops of ice cream to sandwiches, sundaes and malts.

Whole Sol Blend Bar

As the first long-term retail lease signed at Lakehouse, Whole Sol Blend Bar will be opening its third location right onsite. As the first all-organic blend bar to open in the United States, Whole Sol will offer a variety of smoothie bōls, cold-pressed juices, power up shots, toasts and more.
