Fall is just around the corner, meaning the leaves will change colors, pumpkin spice is back in season, and most importantly, football season is upon us. Luckily in Lexington, we are home to the University of Kentucky Wildcats, and downtown is home to the best places to spend a Caturday watching them play!
LexLive is one of downtown’s newer entertainment destinations. LexLive features a full sports bar with plenty of seating and massive screens, perfect for viewing any Cats win. After the game, you can head upstairs to the luxurious movie theatre, enjoy a game of bowling, or hit up the arcade! LexLive offers a full menu so you will never go thirsty or hungry!
Ethereal Brewing has two locations in #downtownlex perfect for watching the Cats play while enjoying a handcrafted microbrew. They pride themselves on exploring the funkier side of farmhouse brewing and are guaranteed to have the perfect brew to complete your Caturday! If you decide to visit their Distillery District location, Goodfella’s Pizzeria is conveniently located next door for a quick and easy game day slice!
Horse and Jockey is Lexington’s only Irish Gastropub located in the heart of downtown right next to Tandy Park. Enjoy the weather and watch a Cats game on their outdoor bar and patio, or inside on their big screen! Watching a Caturday at Horse and Jockey provides a unique Irish experience you cannot find anywhere else!
Tin Roof is a college-favorite live music joint centered between campus and downtown. Caturdays at Tin Roof include a live DJ in the parking lot, playing a game of cornhole, and viewing the game outside on their big screen. Tin Roof offers a full bar and food menu, so you can order a pitcher of beer and fill up on some sloppy nachos during the game!
Paddock Bar & Patio offers a large outdoor bar and patio with six TV’s so you can watch the game from all angles! Paddock is located just steps from campus and is the perfect place to grab a drink and watch a Cats win with your friends.
Here in #downtownlex, there are so many lively places to enjoy a Caturday! No matter what you are looking for, whether it’s a delicious slice or a unique brew, downtown has the perfect spot for you!
