Whitakers Conway – Sushi & Craft Cocktails

As the population in Conway swells, so does resident’s taste for well prepared food and drink. The Historic Downtown Conway district is meeting the demand with restaurants like Whitakers. Their menus is full of sushi, poke, fish & chicken tacos, and more! Their bar is also hands down one of the best. They are a mixology bar that crafts amazing cocktails with all manner of spirits. One of our personal favorites is the Paper Plain Crash which is a bourbon cocktail with Aperol. I recently noticed it isn’t on their featured cocktail menu, but I am sure they will still make it for you!

Whitakers of Conway is located in the historic district on 3rd Avenue. No more do you have to drive to Myrtle Beach for good sushi! They have some of the freshest and most amazing sushi rolls I have ever had. One of my favorites is the Bang Bang Shrimp roll.
