Summit City is a restaurant, coffee shop, art gallery, live performance venue, and cocktail lounge.


Summit City opened in August of 2007. It’s located in the historic John A. Webb building, built in 1925. This building has been home to many significant Whitesburg institutions, including an original general store, the QRS drug store, and the law offices of Harry Caudill.

Summit City believes that small, community-centered, locally-owned businesses are vital to healthy communities. We are committed to fresh, delicious food, to using local ingredients when possible, to small breweries and distilleries, to mountain art and music, and to bringing people together.

Summit City is owned by Ryan Sexton.
