MidTown Reno

Welcome to MidTown! This neighborhood is conveniently located between South Virginia Street and Holcomb Ave.

Midtown is a special part of Reno. It's a commercial-centric corridor in the center of town that parallels Virginia and Center Streets, just south of downtown, from about Liberty Street to Mt. Rose Street. Featuring an eclectic range of businesses from one-of-a-kind restaurants to mom-and-pop hardware stores, Midtown is the most small-business-dense section of Reno. A wide range of businesses front Center Street, including Maytan Music Center, Achieve Fitness, Crystal Springs, Aspen Electric, GuiDenby, Rose's Cafe, and more. A block or so off Center Street but still in the MidTown district you will find even more eclectic businesses, such as the highly acclaimed Junkee Clothing Exchange, Sup Restaurant, MidTown Eats, Creme and a group of highly regarded tattoo, body piercing and skate shops. On the southern edge of MidTown, you'll find a newly renovated shopping center on the corner of Virginia and Mt. Rose, featuring the new home of Sushi Pier 2, a great bookstore, Zephyr Books, and more.

Also in this area is Stremmel Gallery, LouLou's Cafe, the original Silver Peak perched up on its hill, and Chapel Lounge, known for their custom cocktails.

Midtown comprises a unique combination of businesses re-using historic homes for businesses and new modern construction that blend into the neighborhood. Some of Reno's best kept secrets are in Midtown, as well as some more recognizable names. I live on the edge of this district, and can confidently say it's a safe, clean neighborhood that has something missing out in the burbs; character and soul.

Don't forget Nevada Fine Arts moved in to the old bank building next to State Wide Lighting. They have done a great job.

Not to forget the very cool Tahoe Yoga and Wellness Center that opened a year ago above the Spy Shop on S. Virigina. It has established itself as a leader in the Reno world of yoga and continueing education for yoga teachers.

Please i noticed that you skipped south right over Reno's only Adult Bookstore and Theater, hasn't it been open at 1052 S. Virginia St. for over 30 years or something? Also, here is a tie in... Silver Peak's XXX Blond beer was named after their neighbor to the west, the Adult Bookstore and Theater... as it says on thier beer menu.

You forgot Pirates Tattoo, Evolution Tattoo, Dixie Rose Tattoo and Nightmare Studios (tattoo parlor).. Additionally, you missed Lotus Body Piercing. I guess SoDo is the tattoo/piercing and porn district.. =)

How about The Isles, Celtic Gift Shoppe at 809 S Center

We have a great building available for rent in this district--one of the afore-mentioned older buildings being used for businesses (the former site of EcoReno, in the "little green house," located at 18 Stewart Street. It is in a great location, practically across the street from the upcoming location of the Nevada Discovery Museum, which will be breaking ground this summer! It will be available in the next month. Please drive by and check it out if you or someone you know is interested in locating their business in this area!

I was checking out the posts and the Tahoe Welness Center is under new ownership. It is called The Studio Reno. It is a great place for Yoga and offers many different styles and you can view the class schedulde on their site. It offers many types of massage like Thai,Swedish,Shiatsu, and Deep Tissue. They also have the only organic juice bar that I can find in town. It is the best kept secret in Reno. I wish more people knew about it. Here is the link. http://www.thestudioreno.com

Get Recycled Records on that list! Their new store in Midtown is awesome and getting better as they slowly make their relocation from the S. Virginia - Moana area. They rock...

We are the newest owners in Midtown, having recently purchased the 62 unit former Casson Apartments at Forest and St. Lawrence - We are in the midst of rebranding the property, Midtown Commons!! We are currently underway on a huge renovation and are restoring the vintage 50s building, including refinishing hardwood floors, new paint, granite slab countertops and the original tile bathrooms in all units. The property is now non-smoking, has recycling, a community garden, laundry and a gym! The building will be painted in May, along with new signage and a common BBQ area is going in this Summer. Call us to come take a look at moving to Midtown Commons 775.200.2890.

FYI _ Rose's Cafe is closed so who ever keeps the website needs to update it. It was a good sandwich shop.

I AM CONSIDERING MOVING MY BUSINESS FROM LAKE TAHOE TO MIDTOWN. 98% OF MY CLIENTS HAVE SUGGESTED MIDTOWN AS A SPIRITED AND DEVELOPING AREA WHICH THEY FEEL WOULD BE A GOOD MATCH FOR MY COMMUNITY, ARTISTIC, AND FRIENDLY - SPIRITED BOUTIQUE. I AM RESEARCHING THE POSSIBILITY OF SHARING A SPACE WITH A GALLERY OR SPA TO BOTH CREATE A MORE ENTICING DYNAMIC AND TO SECURE A MORE AFFORDABLE RENT. I HEAR OF SOME INCENTIVE PROGRAMS FOR ENTREPRENEURS AND ARTISTS, AND WOULD LIEK TO LEARN MORE. I WELCOME SUGGESTIONS. PLEASE EMAIL ME AT LENIKI.BOUTIQUE@GMAIL.COM WITH ANY CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK YOU MIGHT CHOOSE TO SHARE. THANK YOU! :)
