Tucked away between U.S. 1 and the Banana River, cobble-stoned streets lead to charming and eclectic shops, a diverse array of pubs and eateries, and a near century-old playhouse that brings a little Broadway right into Brevard. Historic Cocoa Village, a once-thought hidden gem on Florida’s Space Coast, is maturing into the area’s most unique destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.
A true walkable community, Historic Cocoa Village is anchored by Cocoa Riverfront Park, a 10-acre greenway that stretches to the back of the Cocoa Civic Center and Porcher House. The park, which includes a playground, splash-pad, and boardwalk, is also home to an amphitheater, which hosts events and concerts from acts such as Iration and Slightly Stoopid, all steps away from the areas top bars and restaurants.
And when it comes to bars and restaurants the Village’s choices continue to dominate the local food scene. From old favorites such as Ryan’s Pizza and Pub and Café Margaux (an Emeril featured restaurant!) to newer unique blend of eateries such as River Road Coffee + Popsicles with its Boozicles and gourmet brew, to Pub Americana, The Village Idiot Pub and REC 225, just to name a few.
And just like the Space Coast’s other downtown areas, Historic Cocoa Village offers prime entertainment options. Most notably, Broadway in Brevard, aka the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse entertains with its full line up of Broadway Musicals in the original 1924 Aladdin Theater. If you’re looking for unique entertainment options, check out Stumpy’s Hatchet House for some ax-throwing, the Blind Lion for some Jazz and Blues, or the many street fests, live music events and fairs held throughout the year.
Historic Cocoa Village continues to add new dining, shopping and entertainment options, making each trip a new adventure. The district makes safety and health precautions a priority during the COVID-19 pandemic, and with year-round weather, there are many outdoor options to choose from. Discover something new each time you visit – trust us, this is just the beginning of endless options!
