The Jefferson St. Soirée, Jefferson Street from Short to Second
September 10, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The first annual Jefferson Street Soiree is scheduled for Wednesday evening, September 10th, 2014 from 6 - 10 p.m. with showcasing one of Lexington's emerging dining corridors. Jefferson will be closed from Short to Second for the block party.
The restaurants and bars along Jefferson will offer food and beverage tastings, and entertainment will be featured on a stage between The Grey Goose and Wine + Market. Aly'An, a female country duo from Burgin, KY, will take the main stage at 6 p.m. to open, followed by Lexington's own Tee Dee Young at 8 p.m. Restaurants and bars not within the enclosed area will have booths to serve customers tastings from their menu and/or bar. Parking will be available at the Cox Street Lot behind Rupp Arena. Shuttle service provided by LexTran's COLT Trolley will be available.
Over the last several years Jefferson Street has evolved into a true restaurant and entertainment district and is now home to a variety of locally owned businesses including: The Grey Goose, Stella's Kentucky Deli, Nick Ryan's Saloon, Wagon Bones Grill, Wine + Market, Enoteca, The Blue Heron Steakhouse, Chase Tap Room, The Green Lantern Bar, County Club Restaurant, West Sixth Brewing, and Smithtown Seafood.
Jefferson Street has come a long since Wine + Market opened in 2008 in the old Ace offices at the corner of 2nd and Jefferson, kicking off a neighborhood renaissance.
