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!”

Dine in downtown and savor flavors from across the globe. From simple to sophisticated we invite you to experience the culinary excellence throughout downtown.

Discover your style in downtown. Browse the brands you love and one-of-a-kind finds at locally owned boutiques.  From trendy to classic and everything in-between you’ll find it in downtown.

Shakespeare, burgers, local hidden gems  & more !  Our August monthly e-newsletter is your official guide on all there is to experience throughout downtown this month.

Art festivals, live music, theatrical and dance 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.

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

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.
