Neighborhood Guide




Hey, Neighbor!

This is a quick guide about your hood. While we love to encourage a good “night in,” we also want to help you explore the amazing community around you. Curated by our team, this guide is full of recommendations of the best spots to eat, drink and hang out around town.

Get out there! Be sure to use #mynicheisyourniche while you’re out and about! We love featuring and gifting goodies to our Niches. ;)

P.S. Locations marked with an asterisk are within walking distance!
