Located in the heart of the University of Northern Iowa campus, College Hill is a vibrant neighborhood with an eclectic blend of restaurants, nightclubs and shopping.
Sidecar Coffee is more than a coffee shop. They serve sandwiches for breakfast and lunch and they brew some unique blends of coffee. Have you heard of a Frank Sinatra? A Van Fleet? Maybe a cucumber basil lemonade would hit the spot this summer.
When it’s supper time,it’s hard to beat a good slice of pizza! Check out the selection at The Other Place or Chad’s Pizza. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, stop in at Beck’s Sports Grill for a craft beer and burger, at La Calle Latin American Bistro for a Latin American burger or brat or grab a quick and delicious sandwich at Sub City.
If it’s nightlife you seek, look no further than the live entertainment available on The Hill. Octopus offers a venue for all music lovers and features regional Blues, Rap and rock bands at their club. Gingers Pub also has Live Summer Sundown Sessions (and you’ll want to keep an eye out for regular appearances by local rock band, The Pork Tornadoes!)
Have a hankerin’ for a late night snack of freshly baked cookies? Call on Insomnia Cookies. They specialize in delivering warm, delicious cookies right to your door!
In the summer, visit the College Hill Farmer’s Market on Thursday evenings from 4 – 6 pm. And, mark your calendar for the College Hill Arts Festival held every June on the corner of College and 23rd Streets.
