ART, BREWS AND THEATRE
 
(2016 - Fall/Winter Issue)

Writer: KAT ROBINSON



North Little Rock’s Argenta Arts & Entertainment District is a must-visit destination for art lovers. This area near the Arkansas River features galleries, theatres, entertainment and culinary experiences in a friendly, walkable neighbourhood.

The community includes the historic City Hall, Argenta Drug Store (the longest-running pharmacy west of the Mississippi) and an old fire station renovated into the North Little Rock Heritage Center. You’ll find several art galleries including Greg Thompson Fine Art, one of the top art galleries and private dealerships in the southern United States. On the third Friday of each month, local artisans showcase their efforts during Argenta Art Walk.

For those who prefer live entertainment, the Argenta District has two venues. The Argenta Community Theater presents theatrical shows and hosts many of the area’s film series.  The Joint, a cabaret-style theatre and coffee shop, offers live comedy and small productions in its 105-person space. Cregeen’s Irish Pub, Skinny J’s, Four Quarter Bar and Reno’s Argenta Café regularly stage live music.

Argenta recently became home to three breweries, including Diamond Bear Brewing Company, which houses the restaurant Arkansas Ale House. Arkansas’s largest bre-wery, Core brewery, opened its first Central Arkansas location this year on Main Street. The new Flyway Brewing Company, Central Arkansas’s first mid-sized brewery, stands a block away on Maple Street. A host of cuisines—including Ristorante Capeo’s Italian delights, Skinny J’s steaks and Mug’s Café’s splendid sandwiches—are on the menu for culinary fans.
