This area is a must, especially for young adults. Lots of stores, restaurants, bars, clubs and it is very Bohemian. It used to be for the hippies in that generation.

I'm going to preface this review by saying that we were there on a Sunday night, after most of the shops had closed. But it was dirty and some of the establishments along the way were less than awesome.
