I am continually amazed by the diversity of local businesses in town. Now there’s a store that combines bike repair with food and drink! Here’s the scoop on Broomwagon in Lexington Ky:
Broomwagon is not your typical bicycle shop by any means. They sell new bicycles and offer repair service with a twist. They know that many cyclists are commuters and need their bikes right away. In offering “service while you wait” they created a combination bike shop/cafe/beer garden. The store opened last year and has a bar at the repair station so customers can enjoy a brew while watching the mechanic at work. There is a courtyard as well where patrons can enjoy soups, salads, wraps, and tamales from an ever-changing menu. Brunch is served on weekends and features a waffle-omelette combo! Regular breakfast is served daily and features wraps, cinnamon rolls and croissants. Milkshakes are also on the menu.
The shop has a coffee shop vibe and the community is welcome to hang out. There are weekly open mic nights and group events. Recent happenings include a tweed-themed bike ride, a country music concert, a heavy metal show, and even bike roller racing. Another weekly event is the Monday night jam sessions where participants are invited to bring their instrument and make some music.
The retail side of the business sells new bikes including commuter models, accessories, tee shirts and much more. By the way, “broomwagon” is the name of the vehicle that picks up stragglers who are unable to finish a bicycle race. The store is located on North Limestone Street on the northeast corner of Loudon Avenue. This is a hip, happening area of town with new businesses opening and even a regular night market event. Currently the area includes a couple restaurants, an independent bookstore, a vintage arcade, donut shop, hair salon, and a local bar. More stuff is happening in the near future!
Residents who live near Broomwagon in Lexington Ky can walk to local shops, a drug store, a park and even a pretty spectacular climbing and fitness gym. Homes for sale in the area are at every price point up to $625,000. Neighborhoods within a half mile of the bicycle shop include Fayette Park, downtown, Arlington, and Meadows.
