Welcome to the Lexington Distillery District

Want to grab a bite or hit the town but not sure where to go?  Start with the walkable, historic Pepper Campus in the Lexington Distillery District near downtown Lexington.


Situated on the Manchester Street banks of the Town Branch Creek, just West of the Lexington Center and Rupp Arena, the unique establishments below provide easy sampling of restaurants, bars, distilleries, brewery, dessert lounge, and live music in some of the city’s most amazing historic buildings.


Pet friendly, the building, setting and creek make this area worth a field trip even if you left your wallet at home.
