Inner Rail Food Court

The Inner Rail Food Hall, named as a nod to the location’s former identity, the Ak-sar-ben horse racing track, provides a one-of-a-kind experience for Omaha residents and travelers alike.

The food hall includes nine vendors featuring different styles of cuisine, all surrounding a central bar. Some vendors are extensions from local favorite shops, while other food vendors are new to Omaha. The thoughtful design and setup of the Inner Rail offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for dining and events.

Found in the heart of Aksarben Village, the food hall is located behind the HDR building, nestled on the first level of the parking garage. The food hall and the ten-story office building are connected by an alleyway, known as the Inner Rail Plaza.

This plaza is a certified entertainment district, meaning patrons are allowed to carry open containers throughout the space. With outdoor games, fire pits, and lounge furniture, visitors are encouraged to enjoy the immersive experience.

Noddle Companies, master developer of Aksarben Village, had a vision to create this unique space in Omaha. With the help of Hospitality HQ, which includes chef and restaurateur Akhtar Nawab and business partner Michael Wetherbee, the team has expertly curated 10 diverse concepts for both lunch and dinner.

Designed by Eimer Design of Philadelphia, Inner Rail Food Hall’s 7,000-square foot space features separate stalls for each tenant, as well as the centrally located Backstretch Bar. Indoor and outdoor seating can accommodate upward of 350 people, along with ample space for parking in the deck located above the food hall. Colorful leaf sculptures by local artist, Therman Statom, flow throughout the exterior of the Inner Rail.
