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.
Grab friends and head to the State Street Beer Company for 16 continuously rotating taps, wine, flatbread pizzas, charcuterie + other small snacks.
Another 6th Ave favorite is The Cat and Rabbit Cake Shop, the most delicious place in town! They offer entirely handmade gourmet cakes that you can get by the slices, the most decadent scones, cinnamon rolls, and desserts. If you need a cake for a special occasion or just because, this is the place to get it from!
Check out Hi-Voltage Records and Bookstore, Tacoma’s best independent record store! They offer a huge selection of new and used records. They also buy LPs, CDs, DVDs, and tapes and specialize in all the latest vinyl releases from Indie, Punk/Wave, Rock/Pop, Psych, Soul/Funk/R&B, Jazz, Blues, & Country.
This home is also just a minute from the University of Puget Sound campus (one of the best spots for fall foliage & a cool summer breeze). Every spring UPS hosts a flea market with the Women’ League – you can find around 70+ vendors selling antiques, repurposed items, vintage, jewelry, bath and body goods, home decor, crafts, artwork, and food trucks! With a $10 admission to get into the event, 100% of the proceeds go towards student scholarships. They also regularly host concerts and art exhibits.
