Welcome to Decoy, Downtown Gainesville’s acclaimed eatery, bar, and gaming adventure.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will greet you and lead you to our central mega-bar and restaurant area where you can "cheers" a beer or two, enjoy our craft cocktails, and taste our chef's passion for elevated tastes in every dish. Our bar focuses on classic and signature cocktails, wines by the glass and domestic, local, and craft beer.
