Downtown is the place to be! Here is why...

Posted on

Downtown Springfield was in full swing this weekend. We wanted to share why we think downtown is the heart of this city! We love Missouri and especially Springfield. We love Springfield so much that we have two locations here. Two awesome stores in two very different but equally as cool places. Our first location is opened on December 10, 2010 on South street in historic downtown, and we couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

Downtown Springfield is full of countless food, drinks, entertainment, and shopping options. Having all of this is in one place is probably why we like being downtown, you can easily spend the whole day exploring around the square. First, you should grab some yummy food. If you need some help picking a place to eat, we will give you some places to check out. There are so many different options to fill you up; burger to Italian food to sushi. A few of our favorites are Grad School, Black Sheep, Maria’s Mexican Resturant, Nonna’s Italian Café, and The Order. Here is a link to find a full list of all the restaurants downtown.

After filling up on some of the best food in town, why not do a little shopping? We would love for you to stop by 5 Pound Apparel. We also want to encourage you to check out the other local shops downtown. Find a great book at BookMarx or a handmade piece of art from one of the unique art galleries. A Cricket in the House has great items for your home. You can shop and have a drink at Lush BARtique. Remember that shopping local supports the local economy, so shop local! Here is a link to find a full list of all the restaurants and places to shop downtown.

After some shopping, you should get a sweet treat or a coffee. The Urban Cup is always serving up home-style gourmet cupcakes or maybe you would rather have a specialty donut from Hurts Donut. Mud House and The Coffee Ethic can serve you up a mean cup of joe, or tea if that is what you are into. If you are of the age to partake in some adult drinks well then downtown is the place to be. The Golden Girl Rum Club and Tropical Liqueurs make some fun fruity drinks that make it hard to say no. When you go to Ernie Biggs, you can’t help but sing along to the dueling pianos. We love touring the local breweries, Mother’s Brewing Company and Springfield Brewing Company. In the summer, you can hitch a ride on The Trolley Bike. If you do partake in these adult actives remember to drink responsible. Now that we have Uber in town, catching a ride to or from downtown is just a click away!

We love downtown because there is always new entertainment going on, whether it is a band playing at The Outland, a new play at Springfield Little Theater, or a new indie film at The Moxie. The first Friday of each month is always set aside for the First Friday Art Walk where local artist take over downtown displaying and selling their art. Downtown hosts some of our favorite festivals like Cider Days and Artsfest on Walnut Street. On the right days, you can catch a live taping of The Mystery Hour at the Gilloz.

There is always something going on downtown and It’s all Downtown helps you keep on with all the latest events. We love downtown Springfield. It is an honor to work around so many awesome local businesses. Downtown inspires us, feeds us, and gives us great entertainment. We love being a part of it.

 

Come visit Downtown,
