With subtle influences from the roaring 20’s, the natural beauty of Asheville, and modern-style iron and glass, District 42 invites you to visit the south side of Arras’ ground floor. Relax on plush couches illuminated with vast lanterns and tucked between walls of beveled glass, or dine at beautiful wooden tables beneath geometric sculptures of wood and light. A larger table for conferences or family-style seating is elevated above the main floor. Hidden in an alcove near the bar, you’ll find low seating and tables surrounded with a 1891 map of Asheville, representing the original 42 districts and the namesake of the establishment.
