Two guide books recommended it but it's just craft shops along an alleyway. It's also not easy to find. We saw one other couple there and it was early afternoon. The restaurants looked closed up so call ahead if you plan to eat there.

So sorry that you were disappointed! We hope you will give us another chance sometime- especially after the opening of the "Bodhi Tree Cafe" (1938 Adams Lane)

A charming part of town with interesting shops (especially craft jewelry) and restaurants, including the best restaurant in the city--Indigenous--where Chef Steve Phelps turns out the most innovative, most delicious food in town.

There are several artist's studios in this small section of older small houses near downtown. The quality of the art is good, but you have to wander among the twisty little lanes and walk to find the places.

Tough to find but worth it. Looks/feels like an old Florida neighborhood (which it is) and you get to see artist people in their studios/shops.

Went there for art night and not many places were open and it was very dark outside. The artists are very friendly but there is nothing special there that makes you want to go back.

This small area of building near downtown is like a small art colony. The number of exhibits had become less over the years. Intersting and quality art can be seen.

Towels Court is full of artsy and unusual art. The buildings are vintage old Sarasota and walking around here is lots of fun. It's not a big area.
