In the late 60s the neighborhood became the city's major hippie haven, anchored by feisty independent bookstores, a pioneering food co-op, and legendary blues and rock clubs. Today a vibrant immigrant community dominated by East Africans rubs shoulders with youthful native-born fun-seekers patronizing the rich mix of bars, restaurants and performance venues that keep the Bank's entertainment heritage alive.
