â˜€â˜€â˜€ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! â˜€â˜€â˜€
If youâ€™ve ever wandered through downtown Asheville, then youâ€™ve felt the wanderlust (and â€œwonder-lust)â€ of N. Lexington Avenue.
This is the most hip and quintessential street in Asheville â€“ a place where restaurants go unadvertised and the best bars have no signs, just a door. This is a place where high-end art galleries abut record shops, upscale shoe stores, and more.
And, while Real Life may be about compromise â€“ sacrifice This to get That â€“ we believe that vacation should be a special time. A time you get both This and That, no compromise required.
80 LEX is your no-compromise-required destination: both urban and urbane, situated right in the beating heart of our vibrant city. Enveloped by the energy and excitement of downtown life, Unit 203 embodies and embraces the Asheville scene â€“ a scene that draws designers and artists, creatives and music lovers, foodies and artisanal beverage aficionados alike.
