“They have a roof top that features several "food trucks". If the weather is nice, it's a golden spot. It's also a great spot to catch some night life.”

Bar
“I’m not a huge fan of this place but other people are. New place made to look old, but no way it should be called a “Pub”. ”

Italian Restaurant
“Amazing drinks. Their emphasis is cocktails based on Italian bitter liqueurs ("potable red bitters", eg Campari), amari, and sweet vermouths (they have the most extensive selection of all three West of the Hudson), but they have the skills and ingredients to take you any direction you choose. ”

Bar
“Elegant décor. Lively vibe, but not excessively noisy. Great for people-watching. Gayest of the unofficial gay bars, (which includes pretty much all of Lancaster's nicer bars, apart from the official one of course). Live music upstairs at Crazy Shirley’s some nights. Open til 2 am without fail 364 nights a year.”

“One of two amazing local roasteries here in Lancaster, Square One is known for pour-overs, cold brew, and what is in my opinion the best cappuccino in town. If you're here during warmer weather, be sure to take a book and hang out on their back patio).”
