Armory Square has been renovated over the last 10 years or so. There is a great selection of restaurants, pubs, and shops in that area now. It is well worth going to to check out. Everything is close together, so you can do pub-crawls if you want. Many restuarants and pubs have outdoor seating areas so you can people watch.
Dress Code: Lunch time is fairly casual. Dinner is a little more formal, but not overly so. Khakis and a nice top is fine -- or you can even get more formal if you want.
Historic Armory Square is located in the southwest part of downtown Syracuse. Galleries, shops, pubs, restaurants, clubs, and other attractions are located here. It is THE night life district in Syracuse.
Dress Code: Depends on where you go in Armory Square.
