After a day packed with touring Lincoln’s sites, groups can unwind at any of these stops for drinks and a peek into local life.

For Foreign Wine: Started by a French chef, Lawrence De Villiers, The Normandy delivers authentic French cuisine to Nebraska. De Villiers tells his story of coming to America after a childhood steeped in wealth and French politics.

For the Nightlife: Groups can walk up and knock on a back-alley door to enter the hidden bar named The Other Room. Designed to mimic a speakeasy with its mysterious address, The Other Room serves specialty cocktails and earned distinction as a James Beard semifinalist for Outstanding Bar in 2015.

For Beer and a Meal: Lazlo’s Brewery and Grill offers award-winning house-brewed ales and comfort food grilled over a live hickory fire. In the Historic Haymarket District, the 1991 brewpub offers many options for groups, including an outdoor patio and private dining.

For Wine and a View: To sit back and take in the sunset over the Lincoln skyline, groups can sip wine at the Capital View Winery and Vineyards. The site offers entertainment, wine samples and a relaxing ambiance.
