It must be really hard juggling all those pairs of tan loafers with finding The Black Keys vinyl albums.
When you feel like you had enough with the waiters looking at you funny because you ordered a soy orange mocha frappucino and a tortilla with foie gras for your lunch (at dinner time), it’s probably the time to go on a trip.
And what’s a better place to go by your personal Chinese taxi cart than a truly hipster friendly place?
Or just a place where hipsters are tolerated and not shoot at sight? Check out these few places that will surely get you in the mood to pack your wooden suitcase, trim your mustache and go.
Tokyo is practically hipster heaven. It has ironic karaoke bars, million types of sushi for your instagramming pleasure and everyone is usually very serious so you’ll fit right in. Or is that a bad thing? Everything is in tip top condition, clean and neat; no place is too far away thanks to the fastest subway in the universe.
Everyone is always on time so you probably won’t fit right in, but you will probably like that, too. It’s strange, surreal and kitsch. You’re gonna love it! The downside is that you won’t be the only one with a pink bob wig.
Brooklyn, New York
Brooklyn is the hottest American spot for hipsters (except maybe Austin, Texas and Portland, Oregon). The craze started in the early 2000’s which led to enormous popularity of the Williamsburg area.
Because that popularity caused housing prices to soar, hipsters moved to more affordable but anti-trendy trendy areas which now include organic restaurants, hair salons in garages, farmer’s markets, cheap-looking bars and of course, ironic karaoke bars.
Europe is crammed with hipster dream destinations. Berlin, Germany is hipster Mecca. Everyone’s a performance artist, every club is an electro club and skinny jeans are a uniform.
Not too far from Berlin, the next European hipster crazy city is Amsterdam, especially its area called De Pijp. De Pijp is known for its former Heineken brewery, mellow coffeehouses and the Albert Cuyp Market.
