You will encounter two main types of shoppers on Smith Street by day:- local residents going about filling their everyday needs; and specialty shoppers, some also local, but many from far and wide -- who follow the independent designers and tasteful assemblers of well selected apparel, shoes, accessories, home & giftware items, bringing great choices to their followings.
While many businesses are open 7 days a week, some are closed on Sundays and others on Mondays. Many, but not all of our restaurants are open for lunch/brunch which combines well with a shopping stroll, especially on weekends. Similarly many of our trendiest apparel shops stay open late (i.e. until 10PM) to accommodate pre & post dinner strollers.
Smith Street comes alive in the evening. Of 200+ storefronts some 70 are food and drink establishments.
Starting with (usually 4-6PM) Happy Hour, and continuing through dinner and late dinner, friends meet friends, gourmets try our famous chefs, and whether it is the food or the ambiance you seek, you won't be disappointed. There is the perfect place to suit every taste, plenty of al fresco dining, virtually every ethnicity, and choices in every price range.
Some spots offer live music and as mentioned before, some apparel boutiques stay open late to give diners a chance to shop as well.
