Enjoying Your Extended Stay In Downtown Little RockMarch 3, 2019
Little Rock’s downtown area is a lovely and vibrant place any time of the year.
Dotted with historical sites and monuments, fine dining restaurants, regular events, and the spirit of typical Southern hospitality, Little Rock can offer you anything and everything you’re looking for while on an extended stay.
Here are just a few of the bars you can spend an evening unwinding in during your extended stay.
Capital Bar and Grill
Located in the Capital Hotel, an architectural staple of the Little Rock landscape, the Capital Bar and Grill serves a selection of mixed drinks reminiscent of a bygone era. Top cocktail picks include the Bee’s Knees, a mix of Tanqueray Gin, lemon juice and honey, created in the 1920s. Customers are drawn here for the unbeatably sophisticated atmosphere as well as the stylish liquor menu.
This Latin restaurant and bar in the heart of Little Rock offers unique tequila and mezcal-based mixed drinks. Local Lime’s signature Texas Two Step is a popular choice made with tequila or mezcal, jalapeño Triple Sec, Basil Simple Syrup and lime juice. The drinks pair perfectly with their zesty Mexican menu items, with delicious salsas, taco plates and fajitas available throughout the evening.
The Flying Saucer
Patrons of the River Market have enjoyed the diversity of the Flying Saucer since the late 1990s. Start with the single-spaced, four-page menu of beers it offers. You’ve got three main sections to pick from here: the foyer area, primed for people-watching; inside the main dining area near the bar; or downstairs where you’ll find comfy couches, pool tables, dart boards and even tabletops with chessboards engraved. Each section has two very visible televisions, and it’s not just pigskin on the screens – the Flying Saucer provided an atmosphere during 2010’s World Cup that would have made any vuvuzela player proud.
The pantry has two locations in Little Rock, but it’s the Pantry Crest that operates exclusively as a dinner and cocktail bar in the Hillcrest neighborhood. Guests can enjoy a beautiful outside seating area to complement the rustic environment and are free to sip on hand-crafted cocktails while eating delicious meals like duck breast and bacon-wrapped dates.
