By Savanne Giroire, Marketing Assistant

It almost summer in Downtown! There are so many great places to eat throughout the city so we’ve put a few of our top spots in one place. Keep reading for the must-try cocktails and eateries to visit this summer in Downtown Jacksonville.


The Greenhouse Bar: For when your looking for a new plant to add to the collection, make sure to hit The Greenhouse Bar. Experience their brand new food menu and seasonal drink options! For cocktails, you can’t go wrong with the seasonal Guava Mojito or their New York Sour. In the mood for coffee? Try their Blueberry Garden and the Brown Sugar Shake. Their recently launched food menu includes Nachos, Beet Tartar, charcuterie boards and gourmet vegan hot dogs like you’ve never seen.


Cowford Chophouse: When the weather gets too hot, steal a visit to Cowford Chophouse’s rooftop bar (equipped with fans) for a taste of their seasonal drink menu. Our top picks include the Gentle Giant, the Cowford Daisy, the Smoke + Fire and the Piggy Comeback!


Plenti: The new spot in town, Plenti, is where to go for a fresh and wholesome meal. Summertime calls for their entire menu! Grab an acai, veggie or poke bowl- but their smoothies are a must. Beat the heat with something sweet: the Mango Luau, the Isla Girl, and the Emerald Palm are calling our name!


Bellwether: First and foremost, Bellwether’s happy hour is daily from 4-7 p.m. Next, their seasonal bites and beverages’s are mouth watering. Enjoy a cocktail or two on their patio!


Bread & Board: For brunch, lunch or dinner, you’ll find something scrumptious at The Bread & Board. At their Alewife bar, order a cosmo for happy hour. For a grab-and-go lunch, visit their Provisions market. While you’re at it, grab a bouquet of meticulously selected flowers for yourself or someone sweet. In the mood for fresh made juice? They’ve got that. They are truly a one stop shop for any day’s necessities!

Anejo Cocina Riverside: For a well rounded meal (margaritas and tacos), head to Anejo Cocina on Riverside Avenue. The ambience and drinks will have you coming back for more! Plus, they’re located just nearby to the Greenhouse Bar.


Arepa Please: “South American Flavor Meets New York Deli Style.” For a quick bite to eat, visit Arepa Please for lunch in Brooklyn on your way into the urban core! You can’t go wrong with The Jax Blond (but try the Pabellon).
