Very Good - 4 out of 5

Very impressed with the arena and the way they handled a large concert crowd.

Liked: Very clean. There were people in the womens' restroom cleaning up and restocking toilet paper between each part of the concert, so bathrooms were very well maintained for a large event.
Disliked: Really long lines to get beers. Not sure if they could have had a better system, but it sure took a long time to get drinks!

Keeneland

Lexington's Keeneland horse racing course is known not just for its thoroughbred horse racing, but also for its sizeable reference library. Experience a day at the races for $5.

West Sixth Brewing

Joe Bologna's

A laid-back pizzeria perfect for a quick bite to eat before your event. The prices here are reasonable and it offers up a really casual atmosphere.
