Boutique Shopping
My favorite neighborhood retail therapy.
If you love jewelry, ceramics, accessories and great shopping, you won't want to miss this store. It is an easy walk at the northern end of the Broadway retail strip. They focus on showing the work of local (and not) artists of ceramics, jewelry, fabrics, and more. This is the sister store to the much larger Kobo in the International District.

A few blocks away in Chop House Row is Ghost Gallery. They showcase cool and affordable art by locals. They have an extensive collection of hand crafted candles and oils, too. They represent local jewelers, and have a decent selection of tarot. It is a great space.

The Pioneer Inn and Tavern Law legalized drinking in public bars and saloons. The Golden Age of cocktails thrived for nearly a century until the 1919 Volstead Act almost destroyed the craft of the American bartender by outlawing the production and pleasure of alcoholic beverages. However, in hidden rooms and dark basements, thirsty patrons still sought spirits. And so the Speakeasy was born, booming until the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Nearly another century after Prohibition’s repeal, left only with fond memories and old bar manuals, the art of mixing drinks is alive today thanks to the efforts of dedicated bartenders, historians and drinkers alike. It’s because of their diligence and passion that the pleasures of artfully crafted cocktails, fine wine and masterfully prepared food has kept the spirits of the night dancing on our tongues and in our hearts. Welcome to the celebration of our history.
