The Fest 16 and Pre-Fest 5 presented by:



120 SW 1st Ave, Gainesville, FL
Hello, FEST15ers!  Loosey’s Downtown is a locally owned bar/restaurant/music venue right across the street from Lot 10 (Fest 14ers, where you at??) and the downtown parking garage that includes Whiskey House and Volta.  We are also nearby Cowboys and Highdive.
You may have noticed we’re on the schedule as well – yep, we’re a full time Fest venue and hosting the Pineapple Party on Saturday… which means yep, we’re a little unassuming as a food spot, but if you’re in the area and hungry, we’re a local favorite for a reason!
This year is our 7th Fest and another opportunity for us to contribute to making this Fest the best Fest yet; we’re really excited to share these memories with you all! <3.

Phone Number: 352-672-6465 (but honestly it gets LOUD in the venue, if you need us you can always reach out to us on our Facebook or Twitter accounts or by email -

Hours: Open daily at 11am, Wednesday to Sunday open until 2am**, Monday open until 12am. **the kitchen closes at midnight.

Price Range: $5-$12

Cuisine: American (really yummy pub grub)

Vegetarian/Vegan Options: Locally made tempeh sandwiches, veggie burgers, and vegan chili.

Beer/Liquor Options: We have a full liquor bar, an awesome selection of 25 local/regional taps, bottles and cans.. and a small, but deliberate wine selection.

Hosting FEST shows on: Oh yeah!

Thursday/Monday Specials: If you need ear plugs, we've got 'em for a buck a pair! We're featuring $6 to go slider sack lunches (burger or veggie burger sliders), $5 Bloody Mary Janes, $3 domestics and $4 premium wells (Smirnoff, Bacardi, Tullamore Dew) and $5 Jamesons. If you're still in town on Monday, starting at 7pm we'll have $1 PBRs (to pare down any surplus) and throwing a Post Fest Zombie Apocalypse Halloween party. You should come!
