A few minutes from the hip and oh-so-cool districts of SoHo and NoHo, overflowing with contemporary dining, drinking and socializing institutions, is the funky neighbourhood of PoHo. The area refers to Po Hing Fong and the streets surrounding Blake Garden. Like its neighbors SoHo and Noho, PoHo is undergoing gentrification, but PoHo has long been a magnet for creative types, young entrepreneurs and independent thinkers. There is still a real sense of community with an eclectic mix of cafes, design studios, galleries and local boutiques that call this area home.
Even with the influx of new businesses, PoHo still retains its quiet and charming character. The lush greenery of Blake Garden and its close proximity to Hollywood Road offers a peaceful escape from the frenetic pace of the city. It’s a place where local heritage can be found alongside contemporary life, and there are increasingly more interesting events happening in the neighborhood. Who knows what new experiences await you here?
