Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
District 42®, located in Hotel Arras, blends together small shareable plates, warm hospitality, and unique cocktails. Our all-day lounge and bar in downtown Asheville, the vibrant center of historic Pack Square, is open seven days a week offering a mix of tables and soft seating.
You’re invited to sit back and relax in our lounge or outdoor patio while you delight in great food and libations made with house-made juices, regionally sourced bitters, and just a dash of downtown Asheville’s celebrated history.
From Zelda & Scott Fitzgerald to O. Henry, Thomas Wolfe, and Wilma Dykeman, this city has been a magnet for people who thrive in its creative, literary, and energizing environment. We wanted to bottle that sense of place where this history could converge at the very core of our location and be celebrated among friends.
Named after the original 42 lots running along Biltmore and Broadway Ave, District 42® is an ode to the past, present and future narratives of downtown Asheville.

    We loved sharing the Mediterranean board and a pizza while listening to the cellist. We had a booth in District 42 - quiet and relaxing evening.

    The reviews were misleading. The pizza, which is the majority of the menu, was not good at all. The flavor was lacking anything impressive. There is so much good food around downtown Asheville, I would not waste my time or money here again.

    Food is extremely overpriced for what it is. We don’t mind paying for good food but this wasn’t it. $14 for a Prosecco. Almost $20 for a Caesar salad that they don’t bother to cut, they give you entire leaves with one small dressing. Burger was overcooked and dry, small patties. Server didn’t check on us and served another table prior to ours when we had reservations and they came after. Ambiance itself is nice, otherwise would not recommend, so many other quality places in Asheville with great food-don’t waste your time.

    We had dinner and drinks here on Oct 16, 2023. The bartender was friendly, professional and she made terrific drinks. The pizza we shared was very tasty. Overall, a very good experience and we would return to this restaurant again. Recommended!

    The space is modern with very high ceilings. It is, however, definitely a hotel lobby. Menu is somewhat Limited. The wine list is reasonably good but the full bottle list needs to be asked for.  we had a reasonably good dinner at the last minute, going to a concert, but probably won’t be back with all the competition in Asheville

    Bargello is close to home and a nice way to finish off the weekend! Great bar, cocktails and local drafts. The food is very good and the atmosphere is relaxing. The servers are always friendly and helpful. One of our favorite local places.

    I enjoyed our dinner at District 42. The kale salad and Cubano are my two favorites. Our server was wonderful and the ambiance was amazing. I’ll definitely go back.
