For lunch—anything your heart desires. If you crave it, chances are we have it. From armadillo eggs to Brazilian steaks and everything in between, our unique restaurants offer something for everyone…and so do our breweries. With stops at Boiler Brewing Co., Kinkaider, Zipline and more, it won’t take you long to understand why Lincoln’s craft beer scene is booming. Wrap up your day with creative comfort food in the heart of the Haymarket at Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill, home of the oldest craft brewery in the state of Nebraska, Empyrean Ales. Conclude your Haymarket experience with a truly unique night cap at The Other Room, a nationally-recognized speakeasy, or take a step back in time at Starlite Lounge, a retro martini bar that is sure to ignite a sense of nostalgia with its classic lounge music and vintage décor.
It won’t take long to discover why Lincoln was named the happiest city in America—it’s the people who help make our city one to enjoy and keep coming back to. Wide open spaces and scenic views will put anyone in a great mood, especially after you stroll through the 30,000 colorful flowers lining the picturesque Sunken Gardens on the edge of downtown. Be sure to embrace a little peace and quiet with the breathtaking views only a vineyard can provide, as you enjoy sampling Nebraska wines in the tasting room at James Arthur Vineyards.

We believe it isn’t the place that makes the people—it is the people who make the place, and we can’t wait to meet you and host your next group tour! Feel free to contact the Visit Lincoln team with any questions.
