These past few months have seen a flurry of new activity around the square, adding several new great places to eat, drink and shop within an easy walking distance from the B&B.
The new Midtown Shopping Center a couple of blocks from us has opened with a bang, bringing with it the new Walmart Neighborhood Market Downtown (yay! It’s changed our lives), Onyx Coffee Lab (a hip, trendy coffee bar), the newly relocated and expanded Pressroom restaurant (beautiful setting, excellent food), Lola boutique (clothing for women), The Independent (clothing for guys), and Backwoods Bentonville (an outdoor outfitter).
Also new – across from 21C Hotel you’ll find a great little boutique called In Season, filled with high-end clothing and gifts, all made in the U.S.
A bit further south on NW A Street, across from Bike Rack Brewery and Pedaler’s Pub on the ground floor of the Thrive housing complex, the new Foxhole Public House is now serving coffee, food and cocktails. Across the way is Gearhead Outfitters, specializing in activewear apparel and gear.
The Square and surrounding areas are transforming before our eyes. With these additions to the already thriving foodie scene, fun local shops, trails and museums, Don and I pretty much have no need to drive anywhere anymore, and neither do our guests.
There’s so much more on the horizon with all of the construction and development happening around us. More places, events and unique experiences to come in the next few months. Stay tuned for updates!
