“Lux is a local bar in the South Wedge. They don’t have food but they do have a great back patio. This is from their website. “In case you haven't heard, Lux is a kick ass bar in Rochester's South Wedge Neighborhood. Come eat some Chex mix, sit by the outdoor fire, look at some cool art, all while enjoying a delicious cocktail. We don't have a TV. We have a huge backyard (with a fire pit for those chilly Rochester nights), a kickin' Juke Box, lots of silly board games and a swanky pool table. At Lux, EVERYONE IS WELCOME! We don't care about the color of your skin or your hair. We don't care if you are gay, straight, (or both). We don't care if you love Allah, Buddha, Jesus, Or none of the above. We don't care what you wear (or decide not to wear). We don't care if you are fat or skinny, bald or sasquatch, young (well...at least 21) or a walking corpse. We just want you to be kind, open minded, non-thieving, good people. All you haters can stay at home. Everyone else....LET YOUR FREAK FLAG FLY” HOURS: Mon-Thur: 5pm - 2am | Fri: 4:30pm - 2am | Sat: 4pm - 2am | Sun: 4pm - 2am HAPPY HOURS: Mon-Thur: 5pm - 9pm | Fri: 4:30pm - 9pm | Sat & Sun: 4pm - 9pm”

Neighbourhood
“The South Wedge Neighborhood is conveniently close to downtown Rochester, located just south of downtown on the eastern side of the Genesee River. This area is home to both the University of Rochester/Strong Memorial Hospital and Highland Hospital. Highland Park is at the southern end of the neighborhood, offering a world class collection of lilac bushes and other ornamental trees. Mt. Hope Cemetery is at the western edge of the neighborhood. This Victorian era cemetery was designed and landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Highland Park. These beautiful outdoor spaces offer wonderful walks, hikes, or runs. The commercial strip, South Avenue, is home to numerous restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and indie retail shops. ”

“Solera is Rochester’s first wine bar, focused on a consistently rotating selection of exciting wines by the glass and an extensive reserve bottles list. We lean towards smaller production, family-owned wineries from off the beaten regions and producers. Wines that have a personality, a story, and a sense of place. Wine, beer, and snacks served in a cozy, and stylishly old-world atmosphere. If you want a handmade cocktail sneak upstairs to their speakeasy Cheshire. ”

Food
“Founded in 2007, Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream crafts high-quality, handmade, small-batch ice cream. A hedonist is someone whose life is devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasures: we find our bliss in ice cream, and hope to help you do the same. Stop in for their constantly-changing flavors and fresh, homemade waffle cones, or take a pint or quart of your favorite flavor to go.”

“This American-Korean restaurant has a lot to offer for a large group or a duo. Rochester is very proud of their "Buffalo Wings" and although you can find quality wings all around town, ButaPub makes some of the best! They put a twist on the traditional wing with asian inspired flavors and the result is amazing! Go on Wednesdays for the $1 special. ”
