Located close to the 6th Avenue District within minutes of popular local spots like The Red Hot - creative hot dog menu + ample rotating craft beers in a laid back environment. If you love Vietnamese, you’ll love La Cà Bar - they’ve got everything from appetizers, to Pho, vermicelli bowls, rice dishes and banh mi which is debated as one of the best in Tacoma. If you enjoy houseplants as a part of your home vibes, Jade & Co. is just next door to this home. Jennie and staff will help you pick out the best houseplants and accessories for your home and won’t lead you astray with plants that need high light, but this home has plenty of well lit windows to keep even the fussiest greenery happy! They also create succulent arrangements, plant nurse services to troubleshoot and triage, and plant styling services for your home. And opening soon inside of Jade & Co. is the Terra-Cotta coffee & tea service. A go-to spot for dine-in or take-out is Silk Thai, which in our opinion is the best Thai restaurant in town. Try their Chiang Mai curry noodles. Learn more about the dining, shopping and entertainment in this district here.
