We were taken back initially about the state of the area around the place but if you stay you'll find that the area is alive and vibrant with great restaurants and cafes. The music and art scene is dyed in the wool here. Jazz and imagery abound in the streets if you're willing to look, we loved it. Don't come if you want to have life served up like going to big box store, but if you're adventurous in your tastes you'll never regret it.
