Old world charm is all around when you stay at Magnolia Omaha. The hotel building was designed to mimic the Bargello, a palace in Florence, Italy, and was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Located in the heart of downtown, Omaha’s historic Old Market is not far away. With cobblestone streets and unique shops and boutiques, there’s so much to do and so much to see. Among the tree-lined streets, these popular destinations should be on your list of what to do in Omaha’s Old Market.
Arts & Entertainment
Artist’s Cooperative is home to a community of artists with the opportunity of gaining professional exposure through unique artist-run exhibitions. You’ll also find cutting-edge talent at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, where artists make a name for themselves in a warehouse-style environment. A live theatre performance is another great way to immerse yourself in the culture of downtown Omaha. Check out the performances happening at Bluebarn Theatre during your stay.
Coffee & Bakeries
Your morning espresso is just down the block at family-owned 13th Street Coffee Company. After shopping around, grab an afternoon pick-me-up at Bliss, located inside Aromas. The story of how this shop has grown over the years is just as heartwarming as their homemade buttercream frosting.
Restaurants & Nightlife
If you’re spending the day at Old Market, make a stop at Omaha’s original brewpub. Upstream Brewing offers a variety of salads, dips, tacos, and more. But most impressive is their menu of beers, brewed fresh in-house. A popular place for families to stop for dinner is Zios Pizzeria. Staying up late? Check out Bar 415, known for its live music and vibrant atmosphere.
