We've been enjoying the beautiful summer weather in Lexington with Thursday Night Live and the Distillery District!
Last night’s weather was absolutely perfect, so we decided to head to one of our favorite local events, Thursday Night Live! Every Thursday night (spring, summer, and fall), the downtown Pavilion is packed with people enjoying food stands, delicious drinks, and live music. It’s a great time for all of the locals to mix and mingle after work, and even people that don’t live/work downtown make the trek to join the fun! One of the best parts about TNL is that the Pavilion is surrounded by some of Lexington’s best bars, and they all open their doors to welcome the crowds. However, if you want to stay outside and enjoy the atmosphere, there are tons of drink stands set up as well!
When we go downtown, we never like to stay in one spot for too long (we have so many favorite bars, we like to visit them all!), and last night was no different. TNL usually starts to wrap up at around 8 or 9pm when the band finishes playing, but since the weather was so perfect last night, we weren’t ready to head home just yet. We popped into Centro, which is always our go-to spot to grab a drink. After Centro, we made a quick stop at Henry Clay’s Public House for some freshly-made popcorn! No night in downtown Lexington is complete without a signature cocktail at Belle’s Cocktail House, and their rooftop bar provides the most stunning views of downtown Lexington.
Since it’s supposed to storm this weekend, we wanted to make sure we spent a little more time outside in the sunshine, so we visited the Distillery District today to look around and grab a gift card for some clients. It was just a quick stop, and we can’t wait to head that way again soon to visit the new Pepper Distillery for a tour! This city just keeps getting better and better, and we love sharing it with you.
