Downtown Living

Hundreds of people already call downtown Canton home and love it. The last few years have seen an increase in the availability of market-rate housing. Many of these properties already have awaiting list for vacancies.

Downtown Canton is home to a variety of businesses, dining establishments and entertainment venues all in a tight-knit, geographic concentration. So it’s all within walking distance from the centrally-located Historic Onesto Lofts. Imagine waking up, grabbing a cup of coffee at Carpe Diem Coffee Shop, walking to work, heading home for a quick lunch and then finishing the day with drinks or dinner downtown – all without ever having to get in your car.

A great selection of nearby restaurants

How about dinner one night at Basil Asian Cuisine? Feel like a glass of wine? Then downtown Canton’s wine own wine bar, Cork and Canvas may be for for you. More of a beer person? That’s OK. Just walk to Canton Brewing Company, located just behind our building. Or cross the street to visit George’s Lounge and enjoy their burger, The Big O’Nesto, named just for us!

Check Out the Chophouse

Dine local at the Canton Chophouse and Market. Just around the corner from the Onesto and Bliss Lofts, the restaurant features Ohio raised beef, chicken and pork from Wayne County. Enjoy some of the best steak in Canton! The menu also includes hearty sandwiches, fresh salads and classic appetizers. Upstairs from the basement level, speakeasy style restaurant is a small marketplace that sells produce, sandwiches, soups, salads, pickles, jams, chocolates and more.

The Canton Chophouse and Market even delivers to the Onesto – one of the benefits of loft living!

Entertainment for all ages in a friendly downtown setting

If you want entertainment, downtown Canton’s seasonal music and food festivals will keep you busy. And the Canton Palace Theatre shows movies or hosts live shows just about every weekend. Have a hankering for live music? Head to Buzzbin or The Auricle to hear national touring and local bands.

First Friday is a monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District. This event features themed live music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises for adults and children. Rain or shine, this monthly party is a self-guided tour of local art galleries, studios, stores and restaurants that is a favorite of many Canton families.

A short drive to more places to shop
