Calling downtown Birmingham home means waking up in a loft or condo with a great view of the city. It means being able to hop on one of the city’s Zyp bikes to get to work, walking to Railroad Park, Regions Field and Good People Brewing, and heading out for craft coffee at Urban Standard or Revelator. After hours, catch a show in the theater district at the Alabama Theater or The Lyric, grab a drink and watch a game (or take a turn at the arcade) at Paramount, or head over to El Barrio, Bamboo or Carrigan’s Public House, a cluster of some of the best bars and restaurants in town. Want to stay in? It’s a quick trip to Pepper Place Farmer’s Market, or make a run to the downtown Birmingham Publix starting summer 2016.
