Reno's Midtown District

S. Virginia Street, Reno

Once upon a time the Midtown District, the area surrounding S. Virginia Street just south of Downtown Reno, was made up of run-down businesses and neglected buildings. But over the past decade, local business owners, artists, chefs and others with a plan brought an edge to the historic brick buildings and tree-shaded streets, reviving the area and transforming it completely. Now the Midtown District has become perhaps the most thriving spot in all of Reno. Painted murals adorn the sides of award-winning craft breweries, tattoo parlors, restaurants featuring locally sourced menus, boutiques, event venues and some of the most popular bars in the city. Just take a walk (or a bike ride) down S. Virginia Street and you'll see the Sticks Development with its independent restaurants and trendy boutiques, cutting-edge cocktail bars like Public House and Chapel, craft breweries and restaurants like the renowned Brasserie Saint James, specialty coffee shops, classic vinyl shops like Recycled Records, the homegrown art gallery/music venue the Holland Project, yoga studios and probably even a vegan food truck parked down a side street. The area is brimming with life and activity. There's almost always an event going on somewhere in Midtown, and the area is still expanding with new restaurants, retailers and bars. Explore all of the art, activity and new excitement Midtown Reno has to offer.

Getting to the Reno Midtown District

The Reno Midtown District is roughly bordered by Plumb Lane on the south, Plumas Street on the west, Liberty Street to the north and Holcomb Avenue to the east. So if you can find South Virginia Street, you can find the Reno Midtown District. From the downtown area, follow Virginia south, and if you are anywhere south of the Peppermill Resort, just get on Virginia and head north.
