Join the Hampden hipsters
Hampden is arguably the most hipster ‘hood in the city. The historically blue-collar mill town has morphed into a hub for artist studios, wine bars, and trendy restaurants. The heart of Hampden is a part of 36th St simply known as “the Avenue,” where you’ll find eccentric boutiques and quirky cafes, along with barber shops and pharmacies. The neighborhood also hosts the annual HonFest, a spring street festival dedicated to Bawlmer trademarks like the beehive, cat-eye glasses, and leopard print.
