R Street Corridor
The R Street Corridor is shaping up to be the raddest neighborhood in town. Full of artists, impromptu music shows, pop-up markets, local shops, and contemporary apartments, the R Street Corridor is a one stop shop for the best of what Sacramento living has to offer.
As one of California’s first railroad and industrial corridors – R Street was once considered just a warehouse district. The corridor has come a long way over the years and now houses one of the most animated streets in the city. Still in development are the much anticipated Ice Blocks whose announcement of new tenants Philz Coffee and Pressed Juicery have created a ton of positive instagram engagement.
Some places you definitely need to check out:
- Old Gold, this retro boutique for reclaimed vintage and locally made goods is a Sacramento haven for gifts and everyday items.
- Fish Face, if you’re into Kru but aren’t interested in spending $$$, then Fish Face is the spot. A brain child of Billy Ngo, this restaurant is perfect for the sushi lover on a budget without skimping on quality and flavor.
- Bottle & Barlow, with a massive outdoor patio and an attached barber shop, this hipster hotspot serves a rotating tap of specialty beers and seasonal cocktails. A plus, dogs are welcomed!
- 1810 Gallery, Franceska Gamez and Shaun Burner ’s gallery features contemporary works from a ton local artists, some famous and some still unknown. The exhibits changes up for every First Friday art walk.
With all of its arts-centered ventures, amazing restaurants, and super hip bars, the R Street Corridor has become the ‘IT’ neighborhood for Sacramento millennials, hipsters, artists, and everyone in between. Check out the images below and you’ll for sure take a trip to R Street soon.
