Cultural Capital

Welcome to Info New Haven the official destination resource for Downtown New Haven. Chances are you’ve heard a few things about downtown (yes, it’s the intellectually-pulsing and urbane home of Yale University). But let’s skip the obvious – there’s more than meets the ‘Ivy’ League. See what we did there? In no other Connecticut city will find a range of new experiences just steps away from one another. Downtown has something for everyone, from dining to shopping to entertainment to cultural attractions and green spaces. Simply put, “we’ve got it all!”

Whether you’re celebrating mom, cheers-ing to your new graduate, or just enjoying time together after a chilly winter, grab a seat at the brunch table.

Downtown is home to the most unique finds in Elm City, perfect for your interior revamp. Be sure to visit the many unique shops for inspiration.

Moms, markets, movies and more!  May our official monthly e-newsletter be your official guide on what to experience throughout downtown this month.

Live music and theatrical performances are happening in downtown! There’s no better place to catch a perfect performance than in the Cultural Capital of Connecticut.

Thought provoking, awe inspiring and anything but dull, our museums help unlock the secrets of the past with an eye towards a brighter future. Discover art and objects from across the globe in downtown.

Vacation, stay-cation, day-cation – whatever kind of “cation” you can dream up, Downtown New Haven’s unique selection of hotels are the perfect answer to all of your getaway needs.

May is #NationalBurgerMonth.  Celebrate at the birthplace of the American hamburger sandwich Louis’ Lunch and other memorable spots!

Whether you’re working from home or the office, Downtown  has endless lunch options and plenty of parking to keep it convenient.

Long week?  Tired of cooking? Treat yourself and your loved ones to delicious to-go cuisine from downtown’s culinary experts.

Score 1 for Springtime (finally) blooming around Downtown 🙌

There's been a lot said, or sang rather, about the eye of the tiger - but not much about the milk of the tiger. Head to Sherkaan & see what it's all about with their Tiger’s Milk, a homemade version of the classic Badam milk made with almond milk, saffron, cardamom, and almonds. Almost too pretty to drink. #NHV

Did you know the Amistad Memorial has four sides?👀⠀
••• ⠀
Pass by City Hall in Downtown New Haven & you will no doubt catch a glimpse of a beautiful statue with what appears to be two men back-to-back. Unseen by the common morning commuter, is a third side, with a third man facing away from the street. These men are all actually the same man - Joseph Cinqué being portrayed at different phases of his life. The statue is the Amistad memorial, a reminder of the events of 1839 and the Amistad Affair. The fourth side of the memorial is only visible from the top floors of City Hall. When asked about its meaning, the artist, Ed Hamilton said he was leaving it open for interpretation. Have you seen it? #NHV #BlackHistoryMonth
