Support DLP Member Businesses Before, During & After Central Bank Thursday Night Live!

By: Asha Nalley

Get ready to kick off Central Bank Thursday Night Live starting this Thursday, April 4th in #downtownlex! For 29 years, the Downtown Lexington Partnership has produced Central Bank Thursday Night. The 2024 season of this annual event happens every Thursday from April 4th to October 10th, featuring different live bands, beverages, food, and art!

Start the weekend early and join us at Fifth Third Bank Pavilion in Tandy Park from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. for great live music and more! Central Bank Thursday Night Live always has an assortment of food truck options and beverage choices on-site, (not to mention amazing kettle corn popped fresh every week from Bluegrass Kettle Masters!) but if you’re looking to customize your CBTNL experience, we’ve got great member businesses within walking distance from Tandy Park!

Before the fun begins, fuel up and grab dinner at one of our member locations! There’s a wide range of culinary choices in any direction: head to Pies & Pints for a relaxed dinner with craft beers and pizzas. Feeling something a little more exotic? Stop by Creaux for New Orleans-inspired drinks and dishes, or School Sushi for sashimi and more. Ethereal Brewing Public House has got you covered with craft brews and cocktails paired with Salt & Vinegar German American Cuisine.

Of course, if you don’t want to miss a minute of the music and need to grab an on-the-go pizza option, head over to Goodfellas and enjoy a slice at the Fifth Third Pavilion.

Live music and great drinks go hand-in-hand, and while Central Bank Thursday Night Live has on-site drinks crafted by The Roxy, there’s also some great member bars located right in Tandy Park, so you can sip and soak in the show at the same time: The Jockey has a number of unique creations that are as varied as the CBTNL band lineup. If you’ve got bourbon on your mind, Centro has over 100 different varieties to choose from (and you can even do a bourbon flight!)

Want an after party after the CBTNL party? After listening to three hours of great music, maybe you’ll want to try your hand at creating some yourself – luckily Night Kitty Karaoke is there to put the microphone in your hand! Feeling a little more active? Your group can book a Big Blue Pedaler experience.

Need a nightcap after your concert experience? The Roxy is only steps away from Tandy Park and Harvey’s Bar is just across the street!

That’s just one version of a pre-, during, and post-CBTNL guide; no matter where you decide to drink or dine, #downtownlex has plenty of options that are sure to satisfy! Mark your calendars for upcoming Thursday nights and keep these member locations in mind to add to your Central Bank Thursday Night Live experience.
