Warehouse District: Artists and Yuppies


In the Warehouse District, artists’ warehouses still dominate the landscape, but the refurbishing of industrial buildings and construction of new apartment complexes and townhomes is changing the neighborhood from a sleepy backyard into the suburb that everyone forgot about.

See great art exhibits at Diverseworks and Fotofest or stop by the Last Concert Café for folk music and margaritas. Underground art events usually happen in this neighborhood, where neighbors are few and far between. Be warned that you should have explicit directions for getting somewhere in the Warehouse District, as the older streets are narrow and sometimes confusing.
