Things To Do

We are so excited for everyone to enjoy downtown Lexington!

All recommendations are within walking distance/within a

couple of blocks from all hotels, church, and reception venue!

Here are some of our favorites:

Buddha Lounge

Buddha Lounge is our favorite restaurant. Best sushi and atmosphere in Lexington! We recommend the yellowtail jalapeño and karaage.

Henry Clay's Public House

Our favorite bar in Lexington! Great live music and cocktails. Colin's band, Family Dog, often plays here! Located right across from the reception venue, this pub was once home to Henry Clay's law office.

Martine's Pastries

Martine's is a delicious French café perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a sweet treat!

Bluegrass Tavern

If you are interested in bourbon, BGT is the spot to go! They have over 1,100 bourbons stocked and ready to sip!

Le Deauville

Our favorite restaurant for special occasions and for any and all celebrations!

Rupp Arena

Home to our beloved Kentucky Wildcats basketball team! We have enjoyed many UK basketball games and concerts here!

The UK/Alabama basketball game is at 1pm on our wedding day at Rupp Arena downtown (located across the street from the Hilton).

Keep this in mind when choosing dining options for Saturday brunch or lunch, and maybe don't wear your red, ha!
