Outdoor dining season is nearly here, and we’re warming ourselves up for warmer weather with 4 spots on Main St. where you can enjoy a sun-soaked alfresco sip or meal.

Lula Drake

Enjoy a sidewalk toast or taste at Lula Drake (1635 Main St.). 🍷

Pop in:

  • On a Wednesday for pasta collab night (read: a new plate is created each week featuring local Dorscia Pasta Company pasta)
  • On a Tuesday for a sidewalk glass of wine + jazz music (hint: live jazz every Tuesday at 7 p.m.)

The restaurant serves a rotating list of wines by the glass + bottle, as well as Madeira, Sherry, and a selection of rare vintages, plus beer and cocktails.

The menu features a selection of unique small plates tailored to compliment + contrast your bev of choice.


Hanging at Hendrix (1649 Main St.) is a recipe for a good time. The restaurant features a rooftop lounge with views + live tunes, perfect for a mid-week happy hour or meal with friends. The rooftop serves smaller plates daily until 9 p.m.

New to the Main St. scene, Smoked (1643 Main St.) is quickly playing catch-up with their array of offerings, including:

  • An oyster bar
  • Two dining rooms
  • A membership-only speakeasy

Spring seating is plentiful — just walk past the dining rooms, microbrewery + indoor lounge (with an additional bar) to the outdoor patio through sliding glass doors.

The full menu is served on the patio, so you can pick from their latest libations and full menu.

Market on Main

Springtime and Market on Main (1320 Main St. #150) go hand in hand. With rotating daily specials like half-off dessert and half-off wine + an expansive pet-friendly alfresco dining area, need we say more?

Soda Citizens can enjoy live music or watch the big game on the Jumbotron LED TV in the Biergarten, or sit down for a sunny brunch after hitting up Soda City Market.

Cheers to spring, COLA.*
