The Best Bars for Foodies in Omaha

Omaha is a delightfully inviting and compact town that makes for easy sightseeing and exploring. This vibrant Nebraskan city started as mainly farmland and stockyards before developing into the bustling metropolis it is today! Visitors can find many fantastic museums, awesome live music and artistic and eclectic neighborhoods to explore. It is home to billionaire investor Warren Buffet, one of the largest Zoo's in the world, and the charming Old Market Arts and Entertainment District downtown. And it is definitely on the nightlife map these days - people travel from near and far to check out the mix of homey Midwestern watering holes, unique music venues, and swanky clubs. If you're on the hunt for a fun night out, check out our Tastemaker List of the best bars in Omaha.
