Have a Chill 4/20 Dinner at Crescent Moon

  • 3578 Farnam St.
  • Closes at midnight

If you’re in the mood for ruminating in Omaha’s nightlife and want to find a bar that features great food to satisfy those late-night munchies, look no further than Crescent Moon. It may not be “dinner” in a traditional sense, but in the non-traditional spirit of 4/20, the location makes perfect sense.

This bar is known for putting a chill vibe out into Omaha’s universe thanks to friendly staff and bar-goers alike. And that’s saying something given Omaha’s vast array of excellent bars. If you’re looking for that final drop of 4/20 greatness, then get the Tuesday enchiladas and a cold one if you’re drinking.

The bar has limited seating due to the pandemic, necessitating an eight-person, per-group limit. But if you want to order delivery, that’s always an option as well. If you’re going to the bar, remember your mask. Add to that your ID, your way home, and a great tip for your bartender.
