#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.

Dine in downtown and taste flavors from across the globe.  From simple to sophisticated, there’s something for every palate.

Shop in downtown and refresh your winter wardrobe. From classic to trendy, we’ve got you covered.

New Year, new you, New Haven!  We’ve got you covered for winter activities that’ll keep you warm in the January chill.

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.

New Haven is known for many things: there’s the Elm trees & the Cherry Blossoms, the Yalies & that Handsome Bulldog.

So whether you’re still detoxing from eggnog & hot toddies, or simply looking to attend more activities you can tell your grandmother about, Downtown #NHV has something for everyone! 👉 Head to the link in bio for things to do around downtown to keep your Dry January going into February.

#DYK New Haven was the first American city built on a grid system? That was in 1638 & it's one of America’s truly best walkable cities today.🚶With its tree-lined streets & mix of shopping, restaurants & cultural institutions - just sprinkle in architectural gems, public art & the increased presence of vibrant colors popping up in meaningful murals all over the city & you may find yourself wanting to get lost. We give Downtown New Haven a walkability score of 14/10 & we don't even like walking or keeping score. #NHV

Advice for tonight: Don't go outside. It's too cold. If you must leave your home, go to ZINC & warm up with a cocktail. Then go back home. #NHV

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
