Victorian Square has been at the heart of downtown Lexington since the 1880’s. The block of sixteen buildings has housed, among other things, saloons, hotels, restaurants and an opera house.

In 1985 a modern renovation brought them all together under one roof, creating an airy and accessible space that is best observed from the central courtyard. The original decorative metal ceilings, ironwork and exterior balconies have been preserved wherever possible. The result is a perfect blend of historical architecture and modern comfort that is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Today, Victorian Square Shoppes & Entertainment offers visitors an exciting and original mix of shopping, galleries, restaurants, bars, and even a theater and museum for the kids. Come see what’s inside!
