The Old Town District is nestled in the heart of Wichita, just east of downtown. Among the brick-lined streets and historic lampposts are a collection of converted brick warehouses dating back to the late 1800s. Built with brick and native limestone accents, these distinctive architectural features define the character of Old Town. With more than 100 businesses, Old Town has become a destination sought out for its restaurants, shops, clubs, theaters, galleries, museums and stores. It’s a popular nightlife district you will rave about exploring.
Old Town is home to some of Wichita's favorite local shops. Pick up flag swag or off-the-wall gifts at Lucinda's, or stop by Nifty Nut House for a candy store experience like none other.
Where to Play
Old Town comes alive after dark as the city's vibrant nightlife takes over Wichita's entertainment district.

You can also find live music and entertainment at WAVE, Wichita's newest social oasis or dance it up at XY Bar, the city's largest LGBT dance club.
