In the heart of Columbia’s historic downtown, The District is a vibrant hub of activity and cultural center of COMO. With boutique shopping, delicious local cuisine, exciting nightlife, and year-round festivals, The District has something for everyone—all the time.
It's time to get schooled. Columbia is the proud home of the University of Missouri, Columbia College and Stephens College—and all three are just a short walk from The Broadway Hotel.
The District is known for its impressive number of chef-owned and operated restaurants championing local farms and ever-changing seasonal menus, as well as a number of ethnic eateries and alumni favorites to satisfy every appetite.
