Our Community

The Benson neighborhood has a storied past, and we’ve always appreciated its history. In fact, that’s why we’re called 1912; it was the year our building first stood. Today, downtown Benson is a nightlife and weekend destination.

Our neighbors include music venues, an adult arcade, a brewery, restaurants, bars, and more. Every month, people flock here for Benson First Friday to experience art, culture, and other vibrant activities. There is always something going on; be sure to swing by 1912 for a drink on our rooftop – the perfect spot for good vibes and people-watching.

Follow us on Twitter to keep up on everything Benson.

In honor of Omaha Pride 2021, 1912 wants to give a big shout out to the fantastic participants of last weekend's drag brunch! We had a blast and can't wait to do it again next year. Happy pride to all!
