Your guide to Lexington!

Entertainment
We’re no strangers to Lexington. Located at 331 E. Short Street, we’ve combed its front country and its tucked-back corners since we were kids, most often on two wheels. We came to love our home and the community that filled it in ways we never thought possible. But, outside of the bike saddle, we could never find a hook on which to hang that affection. No more. Now that camaraderie/filial piety/romance/whatever that we found on two wheels has a place to live, grow, and be shared. We call it Bicycle Face. We love a cold beer and good company after a long ride. So much that we became the first Bicycle shop in Kentucky to install 8 taps with rotating local and craft beers. Come in for repairs and grab a cold one then belly up to the service bar and share your best stories while you wait!

The Kentucky Theatre is a familiar Landmark to generations of Lexingtonians. It's richly ornamented walls and glowing stained glass fixtures have hosted gala events and entertained overflowing crowds. They have also endured hard times and disasters, both natural and manmade. And so it stands today, a true palace of memories, a hall full of comedy, tragedy, drama, adventure, and just plain fun.

This is where nostalgia kicks into full force. The Burl Arcade is a place for adults to feel like kids again. It’s filled with 1980s arcade games, flashing pinball machines, skee-ball and a wall of TVs beckoning you to pick up a controller (and play Super Mario Bros.). The full-bar with rotating drink specials and mojitos on draft add to the fun, too. Make sure to bring quarters, as most of the games require them. And then head next door to The Burl for live music.
