"Thriving arts district downtown"

Addison Street starts in West Berkeley at San Pablo, where the famous Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse has live music almost every night of the week. Travelling east leads you into a mostly residential area, where the small Strawberry Creek Park is a great place to relax and watch people and their dogs. A small shopping center is nearby with a grocery store, hair salon and a taqueria that is open until midnight. The street resumes being residential until it reaches downtown, where it is slowly turning into a thriving spot for the arts. The Freight and Salvage is going to move to a new location downtown on Addison later in 2009. There's the Jazzcaffe (a place to catch some more live music), the Aurora Theatre, and the Berkeley Reportory Theatre. With all these choices, most nights of the week there's something going on, be it a live theater performance or live music.
