Nate’s Coffee Shop: Best local coffee

Le Deauville or Blue Sushi Sake Grill: Best happy hour specials

West Main Crafting Company: Fancy cocktails with an uptown feel

Rosebud’s: Best nightcap
PRO TIP: Grab a GIANT Goodfella’s pizza across the street and share it with your bartender, or enjoy by the slice!

Parlay Social or Belle’s Cocktail House: Best downtown nightlife

*Chinoe Pub: Best neighborhood hole-in-the-wall bar (and lively karaoke)

Gather on Main: Best non-corporate selection of craft beers on draft (over 30!)


*Mirror Twin
PRO TIP: Rolling Oven pizza is located inside BOTH taprooms! That’s right, they have two: one is dog-friendly and beer-only, the other has a full bar.

Pivot (cider)
PRO TIP: They have a great selection of draft beer, too!

Rock House

Country Boy (locations in Lexington and Georgetown)

West Sixth
PRO TIP: Smithtown Seafood is located adjacent to the taproom.

*Blue Stallion
PRO TIP: Grab lunch from Dad’s Sandwiches, located inside the brewery.

**Fusion Brewing
PRO TIP: On the weekends they usually feature IP&J Cuban food inside, and food trucks throughout the week!


**Wise Bird Cider Company


Town Branch

**James E. Pepper

**Barrel House


Talon • Jean Farris • Equus Run • Prodigy

*Bennett's Picks

If you have the chance, don’t miss these places and experiences!

**Do it all in the Distillery District!

There’s so much more to do in this thriving area than what I highlighted!  Park near the water tower or on the mural side of the 5-story warehouse (you can’t miss it) and walk easily from place-to-place, OR Uber/Lyft.  Just remember, it’s not pedestrian-friendly.
