Ivywild School Gymnasium
No one’s going to make you run a lap, climb a rope or shower after attendance, but depending on how hard you danced you may feel so inclined. Movie nights, networking events, live music, stand-up and improv play out in a former gym inside a renovated 1916 elementary school that also serves as the home base and anchor pub for Bristol Brewing Co., plus a marketplace, bakery, cocktail spot and craft whiskey house, Axe and the Oak. If only overriding the rest of my middle memories was so easy.
