Homebase to the one and only Warren Buffet and setting to one of the biggest annual stockholder meetings in the world, rest assured Omaha knows how to treat a business traveler. You will feel a little spoiled with all the fine dining and entertainment options you have right at your fingertips. The end of your conference cannot come soon enough!
Check out the historic Old Market for a slew of restaurants and galleries. V Mertz is a locally owned restaurant that specializes in contemporary American cuisines while Trini’s is home to some seriously delicious Mexican food. Upstream Brewery is one of Omaha’s original brewpubs with beautiful views of downtown, and nearby is Ted + Wally’s, a treat for the adventurous ice cream connoisseur.
There are even more options waiting outside of Old Market. Near the University of Nebraska Omaha, for example, Dinker’s Bar has Omaha’s best burger while Time Out Foods claims to have Omaha’s best fried chicken. Zio’s Pizzeria has over 40 topping choices and makes sure every single one is fresh while Petrow’s is a local, family-owned restaurant with a long history.
Home to the “finest steaks in the world,” Gorat’s Steakhouse is also a favorite of Warren Buffett. Lucky Bucket Brewery has perfected the barrel-aging process and will be a true treat for beer lovers while Grane offers over 550 premium whiskey and a Prohibition era design to boot. An ode to the now defunct amusement park, Krug Park is great for happy hour. You might also enjoy the vintage décor and design.
If you have some extra free time, rent a car, and head about an hour out to Arbor Day Farm, the birthplace of Arbor Day.
