Point of Interest
“People watching on the patio. Upscale bar food for lunch and dinner. If the sun is shining this is probably where you want to enjoy Starkville. Turns into more of a college crowd after 10 pm. Late night food from 10pm - 2am Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Bin 612 is a 5 minute walk from CollegeView Cottage.”
