A convergence of great food
& SPIRITED cocktails
District 42® blends together small shareable plates, warm hospitality, and craft cocktails. Our all-day lounge and bar in Asheville, at the vibrant center of historic Pack Square, is open seven days a week offering a mix of tables and soft seating. District 42 is independently owned and operated by Mandara Hospitality Group, an Asheville restaurant group created by husband-wife team Peter and Martha Pollay. We occupy the Southeast corner of the Kimpton Hotel Arras.
You’re invited to sit back and relax in the 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.
Our sister restaurant Bargello®, located on the same floor as us, features an irresistible casual fine dining experience infusing culinary influences from around the entire Mediterranean region.
As part of Mandara® Hospitality group, our company culture is founded upon our desire to nurture the wellbeing of our staff, customers, and community. We are committed to supporting equity, diversity, and inclusion in our workplace and are actively working against racism in all its forms.
Reservations not required. So head downtown, have a seat and relax.

MY FAVORITE DRINK
IS THE NEXT ONE.
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.
