The Break Room

The Break Room is another wonderful hangout spot in the Pepper District. The only bar in Lexington on a waterway, this is a great spot for a quick drink after work or a night out with friends. Bring your dog, play some horseshoes and corn hole, listen to music and watch the trains go by.


The building, which served as the original break room for Pepper Distillery workers back in the 1920’s, has a large outdoor deck that has great, live music. There is even a fire pit for when the weather gets colder. The interior has a large black walnut bar and an opening along one wall to enable service to outside customers. Rotating food trucks typically occupy a space outside.


To find The Break Room, just look for the water tower located on the Pepper Campus! This small, cozy spot is a great hangout near downtown. We think you’ll love it!
