Block Party! Albert EL Fresco Returns to Downtown East Lansing
Albert EL Fresco is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors – right in the heart of downtown East Lansing! Get out for some fresh air and sunshine in this pedestrian-friendly area located on Albert Avenue between Abbot Road and M.A.C. Avenue. They‘ve closed off the road to create one huge block party with additional outdoor seating, tables, rocking chairs, hammocks, decorative lighting, shade amenities, Game Nights (on Thursdays!) and more. Some nights you can even catch live music!
This is a great place to meet friends for a drink and dinner. It’s perfect for families to hang out with plenty of space for the kids to move around and play. It also makes for a fun date night with so many options for places to eat and drink right outside of the individual restaurants. Take-out food and non-alcoholic drinks can be enjoyed throughout the space which has some really fun additional seating spaces.
Restaurants along Albert Avenue include:
Foster Coffee Company
Harper’s Restaurant and Brew Pub
Jolly Pumpkin Café and Brewery
