Lexington is a happening place with some exciting new entertainment districts growing and thriving. Three major ones are the Pepper Distillery complex, Jefferson Street, and the National and Walton Avenue area. The latter is now known as Warehouse Block and features restaurants, gyms, a hair salon, jeweler, and much more. (Read my earlier blogs about specific businesses including Breakout Games and a Jeweler, Baker, and a Trumpeter.) The new Locals Bar & Restaurant in Lexington Ky is just the latest business to open up in this fast-growing dining and shopping district.
Designed to be a neighborhood hangout, the restaurant and bar seats a total of 130 people. Diners and drinkers can sit inside or on the patio or rooftop. The location at the corner of National Avenue and Walton Avenue used to be a drivethru liquor store. The new owners of the building added garage doors on one side that can be opened. The 2400 square foot establishment serves American Fusion lunch and dinner, The bar offers craft beers, cocktails, and signature drinks.
If you lived near Locals Bar & Restaurant in Lexington Ky, you would be able to walk to it and other eateries, as well as the the plethora of independent small businesses in Warehouse Block. This area is expected to continue to grow with more new businesses planned in the future. Located on the edge of downtown the district will be further benefited from the nearby Midland Development project. Residents who live nearby have quick access into downtown via Richmond Road (which turns into Main Street) or Winchester/Midland Roads, which connect to Main Street. Commuters going east on Winchester Road can link to New Circle Road (our beltway encircling town) and a few miles further can find the north-south I-75 entrance ramps.
Homes for sale within a half mile of Warehouse Block range from brand new townhouses to, typically, 100-year old bungalows. Neighborhoods to explore within walking distance include Bell Court, Kenwick, and Downtown.
