History of Twentieth Street

This beautifully historic building built in 1908 hosts a variety of hexagonal tiles, dinged brass stair-rails, ornate woodwork, complete with the original front desk. First serving as a Denver Bath House for those lacking modern plumbing, this facility is a hidden gem in a bustling downtown Denver. Known not only for serving over one million within the first 6 years open - from the quaint pool to showering facilities within - this facility holds a rich history as a boxing gym. Hosting world boxing champion lightweight Stevie Johnston, along with pro boxers Mike Alvarado, Sonny Liston, Ron Lyle, and the great Muhammad Ali. Today the ring is home to new, veteran, and fitness inspired boxers from around the city.

Natural light fills the hallways, pool, weight room and cardio areas. On the top floor, sun floods the fitness studio and brightens the boxing studio, both of which neighbor the gymnasium. Here, a manual rotating scoreboard is still in place and has been since 1949. 

Buried deep in the facility lives a well-used and authentic pottery studio. This studio ignites creativity among students year-round and offers unique trivia to movie buffs following it's 1995 debut in film "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead", starring Andy Garcia and Steve Buscemi.

Still serving a wide spectrum within the community, this facility was named "The Best Old-School Rec Center" by Westword's Best of 2018. Each visit allows clients to bask in the balance of rich history in tandem with current fitness services, equipment and community programs.
