Top 10 Things to Know about Bridge St. LIVE!

Every Thursday in June 5PM - 10PM

Events are making a BIG comeback! The Grand Opening of The Bridge Street LIVE! Entertainment District and the First Annual Bridge St. LIVE! Music Series are about to take over Hot Springs. We hope you’re ready!  Hot Springs’ brand new entertainment district is located on historic Bridge Street, home of the annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The notorious Bridge Street in Hot Springs, Arkansas is the World’s Shortest Street in Everyday Operation. Here’s a list of 10 things you should know before you come to Bridge St. LIVE!


For this event Bridge Street and Malvern Avenue (from Convention Blvd to Springs Street) will be blocked off to traffic for people to walk, eat, dance, and drink in the streets.


One of the most important things all attendees need to know is that Bridge St. LIVE! LIVE! LIVE! is FREE! FREE! FREE! That’s right! No charge to enter the district. That’s 4 FREE concerts every Thursday in June.


You can check into the “Bridge Street LIVE! Entertainment District” on Facebook or Instagram to show your friends and family just how cool you are, all out and about at a city-wide block party at the one and only Bridge Street LIVE! Entertainment District.


Trust us, you won’t leave hungry. Some of Hot Springs best restaurants will be set-up outside in the Entertainment District feeding all you beautiful folks. Brick House Grill, Copper Penny Pub, Porterhouse, Steinhaus Keller, Picantes Mexican Grill, and The Vault will be cooking up some tasty specials just for you.


Please, please, please no outside coolers or beverages. Beer, wine and spirits will be served in a commemorative Bridge St. LIVE! cup to allow you to walk around the district freely and enjoy your alcoholic beverage safely in the brand new entertainment district. All alcoholic beverages must be served and consumed in our fancy pants Bridge St. LIVE! cups. Not only is this for safety, but also for festivity purposes!


Lawn chairs are encouraged! Do it! Bring your lawn chairs! We dare you to set up right in front of the stage so you don’t miss a single song.


Bring your furry friends, too! Dogs are allowed in the Bridge St. LIVE! Entertainment District as long as they remain on a leash at all times. Keep your eye out for water bowl stations throughout the district to keep those pups hydrated!


Nobody will want to miss any of the four incredible bands on the Bridge St. Stage, so you’re going to be booked up all four Thursday nights in June. Sorry, not sorry. Kicking off the music series on June 3rd is Memphis Soul Revue bringing you upbeat R&B and soul sounds that will surely light up the town. June 10th is Arkansauce serving up the ultimate bluegrass tunes. The Irie Lions is a reggae band perfect to help you beat the June heat on June 17th. And rounding the month off is Funkytown out of Memphis, Tennessee with all the funk and soul on June 24. Make sure you bring your dancing shoes that night!


Get your shop on! Bridge St. LIVE! will ALSO have some incredible vendors lined down the center of the famed Bridge Street. Ouachita Farms, Spa City Cannabis, Jiljewelry, German Roasted Nuts, Pam’s Party Rentals and Event Planning Company and the Warehouse, Sacred Earth Gifts, Mother Earth's Treasures, JBCreations, Crystals of Arkansas, and The Jewelry Junkies will all be there!
