We love Downtown Lexington – it’s our thing! We’re called the ‘Downtown Experts’ for a reason, and our knowledge isn’t limited to real estate. We’re passionate about developing and elevating downtown Lexington, but we also can tell you where to find the best hot dog, high end restaurant, or great new bar.
Downtown Lexington’s food scene is thriving. From traditional southern fare to upscale tapas, there is no limit when it comes to satisfying your hunger. We love Buddha Lounge for their belly filling bento boxes, and their late-night noodle menu. Head to Carson’s Food and Drink, where they provide chef-driven recipes that combine rustic refinement with classic Kentucky elegance. Down on the corner, Corto Lima boasts Latin food and flare with a modern interpretation, and Minglewood will even top some of their global influenced cuisine with CBD. If you are downtown for a workday lunch, dinner date, or a late-night snack, we know you won't be disappointed.
There is no room for boredom in our thriving downtown entertainment scene. Enjoy the energy that surrounds the UK Wildcats men's basketball team when they play at Rupp Arena, or take a stroll through Triangle Park, home to an outdoor ice-skating rink in the winter and a pop-up movie theater in the summer. The Fifth Third Bank Pavilion is an open-air event space in the middle of Downtown that features Thursday Night Live (a weekly concert series in warmer months) and the Saturday morning Lexington Farmers Market. The newly revamped Victorian Square also boasts a fantastic assortment of shops, restaurants, galleries and even a children's museum!
Three words – Beer and Bourbon. Downtown Lexington has quite a few amazing craft beer breweries as well as our very own Distillery District, which does its job at highlighting the rich bluegrass tradition of Bourbon. Swing by Goodfellas for a pour of Four Roses Small Batch and a slice, or grab a house made Cloud Candy IPA from next door at Ethereal Brewing Co. If late night is your thing, downtown has you covered. Gaze upon the wall of Bourbon at Belle’s Cocktail House, and relax on their scenic rooftop till 2 a.m., or head down the street to The Roxy for a modern speakeasy vibe. We have dive bars, upscale cocktail houses and tons of live music, all within walking distance.
Downtown is the center of business in Lexington. Be in on the action by renting an office space, complete with all the amenities from us at LRC Office Suites. Having office space in downtown Lexington will place you at the center of the city's business community, within walking distance of industry leaders. Our centrally located space will have you within a block of Rupp Arena, the Fifth-Third Pavilion, and just two short blocks away from the new Lexington City Center. You will also be within a 5 minute walk of the Fayette Courthouses, and the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government building. If prime location is a must for you, then you can't beat the LRC Office Suites!
So, have we convinced you of how amazing downtown Lexington is? On top of having a multitude of choices when it comes to work, eat, and play, downtown is also the place to live. Imagine walking out of your door and having access to all of these things -could it get any better? Actually, it could - imagine being in the middle of it all in a modern loft with amazing views and all the luxuries you could ask for. That is exactly what we wanted to bring to Lexington- stylish, modern living spaces for people who embrace and love the urban lifestyle. We have developed three of the best loft condo developments in downtown Lexington, and there’s more to come. Our completed projects include Main+ Rose, The 505 on Main, and The Nunn Building. These projects have brought some serious style to downtown living. If you want in on the action, give us a call. We will let you know what we have available, and what we have up our sleeves for our future projects!
