Located in the heart of the 6th Avenue District any 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 blocks away from 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. Learn more about the dining, shopping and entertainment in this district here.
Asado is great for a fancy date night (or just drinks and apps in their bar, for a more affordable outing), but they’re doing things a little differently right now - you can either order their menu items to go, or they’re offering curated BBQ Kits for you to feel like the Top Chef of your backyard.
This home is less than a mile from the University of Puget Sound campus (one of the best spots for fall foliage & a cool summer breeze). Here you can catch a football, basketball, softball or a lacrosse game. Check their schedule for all upcoming games. Or attend any one of their events, exhibits or talks. Every spring UPS hosts a flea market with the Puget Sound Women’s League – you can find around 70+ vendors selling antiques, repurposed items, vintage, jewelry, bath and body goods, home decor, crafts, artwork and food trucks!
Lander Coffee is a local favorite and just a mile away. It’s bright, cozy, with a minimalist vibe and friendly. When their shop opens again, it’s a great place to meet up with a friend or sit and catch up on a little work, and a little play area for kiddos. They’re currently serving takeout only and their pickup window Wed- Sun from 8 AM to Noon. Get fresh pressed juices, get a jug of latte or cold brew to get you through that work-from-home week and beans to make your own fresh pressed coffee at home.
Newly reopened is Evolve Home + Apparel, an eclectic home décor shop with accent pillows, throw rugs & blankets with refinished vintage furniture like lamps, radios artwork, vintage apparel and handmade pieces by local artists.
