The city of Lebanon is full of historic beauty and impressive growth. The sights and sounds of the city present southern charm and modern conveniences. Residents who live in the Lebanon area can attest to its suburban lifestyle. Lebanon hosts an array of businesses, shopping areas, and restaurants. But out of everything Lebanon has to offer, Downtown Lebanon Square might be a local favorite.

Eateries, attractions, and shopping venues line the streets of the historic Downtown Lebanon Square. It would be easy to spend an entire day wandering around Square, enjoying the food and taking in the views. That’s why we’ve compiled a few of our recommendations for things to see and do in Downtown Lebanon Square.

Where to Eat in Downtown Lebanon Square

It might not be popular to put dessert before the main course, but we are making an exception here! Main Street Mercantile and Creamery is just as dreamy as its homey, down-south name suggests. This store-meets-ice-cream-parlor is a one-of-a-kind treat! They sell Tennessee-themed apparel, Christie Cookies, and goods from the well-known Loveless Cafe! And, of course, they also serve floats, milkshakes, and ice cream. This place is definitely a go-to for the sweet tooth in the group.


And for the main course, we recommend Town Square Social. This cozy corner restaurant and bar serves wood-fired pizza and delicious southern comfort food, as well as a signature cocktail. Those who love taking in the atmosphere of a restaurant will appreciate the warm, inviting vibe of the exposed brick, shiplap, and hanging lights. Did we mention they also have live music every Friday? This delicious stop checks several items off our must-see restaurant list!

Both the Main Street Mercantile and Creamery and the Town Square Social could easily fall into this category. But, there is plenty more to see in Downtown Lebanon Square. This hub within the city is home to a bookstore, a unique theatre, and a plethora of boutiques.
