15 Places In Phoenix For The Modern Hipster

Seriously, you need to check these places out!

Every modern day hipster knows that we love vintage things as much as we love coffee and tea. Whether you are down to sip on some coffee and write in your journal or are looking for something a little more upbeat, you can grab your typewriter and take note of this list.

1. The Duce


This is not your average sit down restaurant. The Duce was once a 1920's warehouse (and still is) where people came to dance and have fun at night. The warehouse is filled with vintage sportswear, different kinds of food (try their pot pies in a jar!), bleachers to chill out on, and tons of games (such as corn hole, ping pong, and foosball).

2. Curious Nature


Are you a fan of oddities such as skeletons and taxidermy butterflies? Curious Nature is a place for those who appreciate "ethically sourced taxidermy, skulls, and bones, to exotic plants, collectibles, and gifts."

3. Cobra Arcade


Cobra Arcade is a bar filled with vintage arcade games such as Dig Dug, Donkey King, Centipede, and tons more. If you have an appreciation for old school games, then this is definitely the place for you.

4. Concerts at The Van Buren


Like any modern hipster will know, music is an imperative part of our lifestyle. Artists such as Billie Eilish, Ziggy Marley and The X Ambassadors love to come through and play at this small venue. If you get the opportunity to get your hands on a ticket, check it out.

5. The Baked Bear


This is probably the best ice cream sandwich that you will ever have in your life. You can choose from 12 different kinds of cookies, 15 different ice cream flavors and a ton of toppings to create your own masterpiece.

6. Stinkweeds


This pace is a really rad record store with a funny name…enough said.

7. FilmBar


"At FilmBar, enjoy food, drinks, movies, and relaxation in our one-of-a-kind independent theater here in downtown Phoenix. We specialize in Indie and Foreign flicks, as well as Cult, Classic, Retro, and Locally Made films." FilmBar switches their movies daily and is a great way to escape the summer heat.

8. Cheese ‘N Stuff


This place is a deli that has been around for 6 years. They always have fresh ingredients which make the most magnificent sandwiches.

9. Be Coffee and Food


Two words…latte art. They also have amazing tea too!

10. Phoenix Art Museum


With tons of different exhibits, the Phoenix Art museum is definitely a place that you will want to spend at least half a day in. The artwork will blow you away. I definitely recommend the Firefly room by Yayoi Kusama.

11. Luci's


Luci's is an adorable vintage themed market place that carries healthier food options. Their breakfast aesthetic is flawless and it tastes great too!

12. Rokerij


The atmosphere in the restaurant is always relaxing and is lit by a lot of candle light. Their tasty New Mexican dishes are served in hefty portions, so get ready to share with someone.

13. Antique Gatherings


With over 18,000 square feet of antiques, this place is beyond fun to go to with a friend or two.

14. Songbird Coffee and Tea House


This place welcomes every type of person and plays live music often. "Songbird prides itself on hosting a variety of musicians, artists, poets, story tellers, and craft-folk."

15. Musical Instrument Museum


Similar to the Phoenix Art museum, it is a museum dedicated to obscure (and normal) musical instruments. Words cannot describe how cool this museum really is.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
