Midtown has forged its unique identity over the past few decades, gaining recognition as its own entity rather than as an appendage of downtown. Today, it’s one of the most desirable places in the city to live, work and play, especially for millennials.
Midtown restaurants draw rave reviews in national publications, sidewalk tables and bicycles are everywhere, stylish boutiques cater to the fashion-forward, galleries showcase the best in regional art, and nightclubs throb into the wee hours. Midtown is the part of the city that never sleeps, the place where everyone wants to be.
It’s also a neighborhood of sub-neighborhoods. Lavender Heights, for example, is the name given to an area around 20th and K streets where many LGBT-owned businesses are located. The Sutter district is named for its proximity to historic Sutter’s Fort and the massive Sutter Health complex, while the Handle, centered around a busy block bounded by Capitol Avenue, 18th, 19th and L streets, was so named because of the way it appears on a map in relationship to Capitol Park (think handle on a pan).
Compact and walkable, this vibrant neighborhood within a neighborhood is a great place to start your explorations of Midtown.
Eat, Drink, Shop in Sacramento’s Compact Handle District
The Handle District, like much of Sacramento, has a focus on food and drink.
High-end restaurants such as Mulvaney’s B&L, Aioli Bodega Española and The Press Bistro cater to a well-heeled crowd of business folks, young professionals and foodies looking for seasonal fare taken to a new level. Take a stroll to discover other faves like Zocalo (stylish Mexican), Paesanos (casual Italian), Broderick Roadhouse (over-the-top comfort food), Buckhorn Grill (barbecue), Pushkin’s Restaurant (gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan), and Make Fish, your to-go place for poke, a raw fish salad popularized in Hawaii.
To wash it down, quaff a craft brew at Fieldwork Brewing Co. (kid- and dog-friendly) or Big Stump Brewing. Nearby 58 Degrees & Holding Co. has an impressive menu with wine and beer selections to match. For a morning coffee or afternoon caffeine jolt, Old Soul Co. is the place to go. Totally out of the fray is BenBen’s Hidden Tea Room, a Zen-style nook tucked away in a live-work space where you can wind down after a spring-loaded day.
Of course, you have to make time to shop, and the Handle doesn’t disappoint. Pop into Zanzibar Trading Company for imports and handicrafts, Heart Clothing Boutique for great style in a small space, Scout Living for vintage and one-of-a-kind furnishings, and Art of Toys for rare, vintage and collectible playthings. And don’t miss the Midtown Farmers Market, held Saturday mornings at 20th and L streets and featuring more than 50 vendors.

What People Says?
"Kathi was experienced and knowledgeable, we felt she had our best interest and were easy to work with, always happy to assist. I feel her expertise and knowledge is what sold our home in 3 days with 10 offers over asking price. (Pretty awesome!)"
"Tom has been truly exceptional to work with. Can’t say enough about our experience with Tom. He helped us purchase our home and when it was time to sell it, we went right back to him. He is extremely professional, punctual, responsive, and got us an amazing price on our home. My husband and I are very busy and he made the entire process seamless and simply a breeze. He knows the area extremely well, and gave us perfect advice on how to position things. Really, Tom is amazing and can’t recommend him highly enough!"
