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.

“One of the best food scenes in the country …” – New York Times, January 2023
