Is Worcester the Next Hot Hipster City in the U.S.?

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Worcester may have been snubbed by Travel & Leisure’s Top Hipster Cities list, but that’s just because the underground culture in the city hasn’t yet revealed itself. When it does, everyone will know Worcester is the next hot hipster city.

Next week, GoLocalWorcester will be highlighting the city’s hipster culture, introducing you to the thriving businesses, cool music and the people making it all happen.

While defining a hipster can be tough, it often refers to young, funky people who hang out in obscure bars, restaurants and shops, while keeping an eye toward living an eco-friendly lifestyle.

T+L ranked cities based on features including live music, coffee bars and independent boutiques. To zero in on the biggest hipster crowds, it factored in the results for the best microbrews and the most offbeat and tech-savvy locals.

Worcester may not have made the cut for the top 10 by those standards, but it certainly has an abundance of cool bars featuring craft beers and classic cocktails, consignment shops bringing low-cost yet high-fashion to the streets and green markets and restaurants making eco-friendly food easy.

Beer aficionados rejoice in the city over Armsby Abbey, which has brought unique beers from around the globe to the heart of the city. Fashion meets eco-conscience at consignment shops like Alexis Grace.

Worcester was also hip enough two years ago to make it in PETA’s top 10 most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly cities in North America and who would doubt it with hot spots like Dr. Gonzo’s Food Emporium.

To the delight of our readers, GoLocalWorcester found the 10 coolest people in Worcester last week…just wait until we reveal the 10 hippest next week!

Find the hottest of Worcester’s hipster culture next week on GoLocalWorcester.com.
