Recommendation by Lemi
Gough Street’s two blocks are jam-packed with cool boutiques, modern concept stores, and trendy restaurants. Against these new establishments stand older colonial buildings that hearken back to the street’s history as a hub for the printing presses. While the print shops that once dominated the area have mostly been pushed out by gentrification, a few remaining presses are still holding on to Gough Street’s history, lending their heritage to its eclectic, ever-changing identity. The boutiques along Gough Street are more akin to galleries than stores, making window-shopping an event onto itself. Be prepared to pay a hefty price for the designer goods, as this isn’t the place to shop for bargains. The place comes alive after work hours and stays busy until late in the evening. Visit at these times for the area’s youthful energy, or come in the morning for more peaceful shopping.
