As part of our mission to promote local businesses that our residents love, for the next several months, one week out of each month's blog posts will feature three businesses within a few minute walk from Twin River Commons which our residents enjoy and we hope you will too! Here are our first three for the month of September!

Located at 60 Court Street in downtown Binghamton, Dos Rios is an incredible upscale Mexican restaurant and bar with a menu featuring everything from delicious Chimichurri Steak Tacos to the mouthwatering Pineapple Shrimp Quesadilla. The decor is choc-full of vibrant Mexican art and the beverage menu is quite extensive with almost 100 types of tequila alone!

This modern take on the barbershop which can be found at is nothing if not a home run. The six member team is both incredibly professional and talented. But cutting hair isn't all they do. Other services they offer include beard sculpting, hot towel shaves, and even facial masks! The decor is modern and inviting, but don't take our word for it. The reviews speak for themselves

If you enjoy fresh coffee, loose leaf tea, and all day breakfast, Strange Brew is for you! Although all day breakfast is available seven days a week, there is an incredible daily lunch menu as well which includes salads, sandwiches, and of course Strange Brew's famous Mac & Cheese which can even be ordered as part of a mouthwateringly delicious Mac and Cheese grilled cheese sandwich! Check out the full menu here!

If you're interested in incredible student housing within a few minute walk from these and other incredible establishments, come in to Twin River Commons and take a tour, or take the virtual tour here!
