7 Places You Need to Visit in the Distillery District

Lexington, KY is growing more and more each year and, although this will always be our old Kentucky home, we are loving how this city has been developing! Change may seem scary, but it can also be FUN. The Distillery District is a historic area of Lexington that has grown immensely over the past 10 years and is now a major hotspot for visitors and local residents. If you’re thinking of doing something fun downtown, here are 7 places in the Distillery District that you need to check out:


Manchester Coffee Co.

If you’re looking for the coolest little coffee house, check out Manchester Coffee Co. We could sit here all day and enjoy the Paxton Home decor, good vibes, and great coffee.  We love an Americano, what’s your go-to? 



We love shopping for furniture and home decor items– way more than clothing, shoes, or accessories! We’ve been hearing about Relic forever and finally made it down to check it out. What a cool place! It’s definitely worth the visit down in the Distillery District.


Goodfellas Pizzeria 

This renovated distillery space is absolutely stunning and we know that you’re going to enjoy both the atmosphere and the food! This place has some really good (and really big) slices of New York-style pizza as well as a craft cocktail bar with over 200 varieties of bourbon. When you visit, make sure you also eat a slice of pizza for us! 🙂



Need a fun and safe place for your dog to play while you run some errands? Definitely check out DogTown in the Distillery District! This doggy daycare offers cage-free, supervised group play with other dogs, boarding and grooming services. They even require an interview to make sure that your pup will get along with everyone, so the entire process is worry-free and you know that your four-legged friend is going to be in good hands!

Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge 

There’s nothing better than locally made products, especially if that product is ice cream! Crank & Boom is an ice cream lounge that makes everything in-house and from scratch, everything! And with 100% of the dairy, blackberries, and strawberries from local farms, you really can’t feel guilty about having some of this ice cream. They are constantly coming up with fun, seasonal flavors and ice cream cocktails, putting a fun twist to dessert!


The Burl Arcade 

Live out your 80s arcade game dreams at The Burl Arcade! Seriously, this place is so. cool.  With pinball machines, skeeball, walls of TVs with game controllers, AND a full bar, it’s like being a kid again but with the adult perks. Don’t forget to bring your quarters!


Battle Axes 

We don’t know any other place where you can hold an axe in one hand and a beer in the other hand! This is a very popular place to visit in the Distillery District because it’s so much fun! Whether you’re there for a casual time with friends, a corporate event, or even a private party, you’re bound to have a good time!
