This is primarily a restaurant and bar night scene. There are a few shops, but not many. The restaurants are the primary destination, so if you are looking for something else, you are likely to be disappointed. Similarly, there is not much of historical relevance here, but it has an old timey, quaint feel to it.

Most of the spots were closed. This is the Hipster area..or so was told.... Found a large bar open with vey good beer taps...don't remember the name..another spot had some howling live music coming out of it....a couple of restaurants were open... Otherwise pretty uneventful...I wanted to hit Alchemy, they closed at 4pm. Not a very "hipster" spot.....

Enjoyed my first time to this quiant little area packed full of shops, restaraunts, and bars. Historic area but clean and well maintained. I could spend a whole Saturday just walking and browsing the area. They even have a cute little kangaroo shuttle bus to take you from one end of town to the other.

The Cooper Young district was recommended to us by some locals. We went on a Sunday & there sure wasn't much doing. Yes there are a lot of restaurants, but how many restaurants can you visit in a day? Only came across one shop that was open & then there was nothing. Hopefully I've misjudged an area by one afternoon,... More

I love the Cooper-Young area so much that I got a job here. There is so much culture and personality in one location! Be sure to people watch as you dine on Tappas or sip cocktails. Also attend cooper young festival in September!
