Fayetteville is the entertainment headquarters of the I-540 corridor — and the best place to find never-ending music, good food, tasty libations and fun. The Dickson Street area is the epicenter of Northwest Arkansas' nightlife and entertainment. With many boutiques and shops, galleries, bars, live music venues, restaurants and dance clubs, Dickson Street has something for everyone. The address is known far and wide for being a frequent stop on many major musical acts' national tours, with most of the best concerts each year taking place at George's Majestic Lounge, the state's oldest continuously operating bar. During the school year, the crowds on Dickson are largely students (the University of Arkansas borders Dickson Street), but locals of all ages frequent the strip. Different establishments cater to different age groups, so it's not hard — especially since you're in the highly hospitable South — to find that welcoming watering hole where everyone will eventually know your name.
