Location, Location, Location
If you’ve ever wandered through downtown Asheville, then you’ve felt the wanderlust (and “wonder-lust)” of N. Lexington Avenue.

This is the most hip and quintessential street in Asheville – a place where restaurants go unadvertised and the best bars have no signs, just a door. This is a place where high-end art galleries abut record shops, upscale shoe stores, and more.

And, while Real Life may be about compromise – sacrifice This to get That – we believe that vacation should be a special time. A time you get both This and That, no compromise required.

80 LEX is your no-compromise-required destination: both urban and urbane, situated right in the beating heart of our vibrant city. Enveloped by the energy and excitement of downtown life, Unit 201 embodies and embraces the Asheville scene – a scene that draws designers and artists, creatives and music lovers, foodies and artisanal beverage aficionados alike.

Here’s what awaits:

Dining: Asheville is a food-and-drink dream – there’s a reason Livability named us a Top 10 Foodie City! – and from 80 LEX, you’re just minutes to much of your must-eat list, including Curate, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Limones, Rhubarb, Posana, Table, La Bodega, Chai Pani, The Market Place, Cucina 24, Mamacita’s & Wicked Weed.

Shopping: Royal Peasantry and Earth Magic are both located directly below Unit 201, while Honeypot Vintage, the Downtown Asheville Tea Room, and Hip Replacements Clothing, among other must-see shops, are located on the same block.

Urban Trail Art Tour: Art lovers, put yourself right in the center of Asheville’s Urban Trail, a 1.7-mile walking tour home to 30+ stops at creative landmarks, public sculptures, dioramas, and more.

Festivals: From Downtown After Five (once a month, in summer) and the Lexington Avenue Arts Fest, to Drum Circle and Art in the Park, downtown Asheville, Lexington Avenue, and the River Arts District are ripe with arts, culture, and creative pursuits.

Chicken Alley: Stray chickens no longer roam downtown Asheville, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pay a visit to historic Chicken Alley, just outside Apartment 201.

Live Entertainment: Asheville has a vibrant music community, but reading through dozens of venue websites can be tedious and time consuming. Checkout these venues within walking distance: Asheville Music Hall, The Orange Peel, Harrah's Cherokee Asheville Center (aka Civic Center), Barley’s Taproom, Jack of the Wood, One Stop, Tressa’s, Tiger Mountain Thirst Parlor, 5 Walnut Wine Bar. With so many shows happening each week, it can be easy to miss one of your favorite bands.
