#NHV

Welcome to Downtown New Haven, a city of connections. Where awe-inspiring innovation meets the nation’s best pizza. Here, great ideas in music, art, dance and theater gather on the Green and on incredible stages in neighborhoods across the City.

It may be why we prefer our hamburgers without ketchup and why we spend as much time browsing our bookstores as we do our boutiques.  There’s a lot to learn, taste, try, see, and do in downtown. Click around and you’ll see  what you’ve been missing, us.

Fuel up with an artisanal coffee or tea sip your way throughout downtown during leaf peeping season.

Fall in downtown and discover your style.  From trendy to classic and everything in-between, we’ve got it all.

Gratitude, wine & shopping crawls, and holiday cheer. Check out our November e-newsletter.

There’s no better place to catch a perfect live performance than in the Cultural Capital of Connecticut.

Thought provoking, awe inspiring and anything but dull. Discover art and objects from across the globe at all of downtown’s museums.

Vacation.  Stay-cation. Any type of “cation” you envision, downtown hotels are the perfect answer to all of your getaway needs.

Cheers to the weekend and brunch with best friends… Catch the vibe & bring your appetites to downtown.

Back in the office and looking for lunch?  Downtown  has endless lunch options for you to get out and explore.

Long week?  Tired of cooking? Treat yourself to some savory cuisine from downtown’s culinary experts, to-go.

It’s #SmallBusinessSaturday. Shopping small doesn’t have to mean spending more. Even the smallest purchases are appreciated by shop owners & go towards furthering their goals. Downtown New Haven is home to many independent, wildly creative, incredibly courageous small business retailers & we ♥️ each & every one of them. #NHV
