La Placita is a little market surrounded by good food, good music, and good bars. You can enjoy your dinner while you enjoy the nightlife.

We came here not knowing about La Placita. We were dining in a local restaurant here. What a cool place. We walked around before dinner and knew we had to come back to explore more. Cool bars, local vibe....worth a visit.
