Live the Dream in Lincoln

One of the most exciting things about the Leighton District is the opportunity to live at The Flats! The Flats are a luxury-tier apartment community nestled comfortably within Leighton District. We know there are plenty of places to live in Lincoln, but we can’t help but think that The Flats are like nothing in the area! The Flats offer spacious studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and private-entry loft floor plans, making it an ideal living option for a variety of individuals and families. These apartments are all enhanced by The Flats’ premium amenities, including a resort-style pool and sundeck, controlled-access parking, bike storage, community lounges, a dedicated study room, and a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness room.

Located in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, these apartments sport sleek, modern design, and were built with the aesthetics of the neighborhood in mind. With bars and restaurants on the main level, fun is always right outside your door at the Flats.

Lincoln’s Newest Favorite Sports Bar

Leighton’s Pub

We’re taking the idea of “bar food” to a much higher (and more delicious!) level. Leighton’s Pub offers artisan wood-fired oven pizzas, including popular options like crab rangoon pizza and super-roni. Other mouth-watering items on the menu are the smash burgers like the Jack Burton, a two-patty burger topped with grilled ham, fried egg, cheddar cheese, mayo, lettuce, and tomato; and a plethora of sandwiches to choose from. One of our most popular ones being the lobster roll sandwich which is made with lobster claw meat mixed in kewpie mayo and served on a buttery brioche bun. Add a chalkboard full of robust draft beers, mojitos, mules, and more, and you might never want to leave!

Leighton’s Pub also hosts events during the week that you won’t want to miss! Tuesdays are “Family Night Out” with $4 domestic 22oz drafts, $4 seltzers, and kids eat free! “Wing & Whiskey Wednesdays” start at 4 P.M. and include $4 Jack Daniels, $5 Crown and Jim Beam, $0.75 wood-fired wings, and $9.99 for a boneless basket. And Trivia Thursdays are hosted by America’s Pub Quiz from 6:30 P.M. – 8:30 P.M. Stop in, take a seat, and enjoy the social environment that Leighton’s Pub brings to Leighton District.
