Milk District

Quality over quantity

comment

The Milk District is kind of like the little neighborhood that could – though it’s really pretty tiny, it packs a lot of power and personality. You want craft beer? You can get it at Sportstown or the Milk Bar. Divey hole-in-the-wall? Check out Whiskey Lou’s Lounge. Shopping? A used-book store and vintage shop both call the Milk District home. Toss in a friendly local coffee joint, the city’s only skate park and a live-music venue, and you’ve got the makings of one of the best little neighborhoods this side of … well, anywhere, really.
