Seriously?

Nothing wrong with being a hipster. We need more variety of people/personalities in San Antonio.

All types are welcome, but to say the urban core is all hipsters and that "Clean cut professionals" stick to the med center is rather laughable. I need to tell that to all my banker, lawyer, high tech and physician neighbors. Gotta start growing some beards.

When I read ashbeeigh's statement...it doesn't really seem to mesh with how you take it. She didn't seem to say all of downtown is hipster and...she didn't even mention med center at all...just northside which is a much bigger area but you know that already.

Right...I know...rhetoric....gotcha.

Anyone taking a stroll downtown can see majority (aside from tourists) are dressed what most call "hipster". Nothing wrong with that...just observation.

My observations are quite different then yours and I'm in the thick of it living in the Southtown area. I don't see an abundance of hipsters.

I agree with all the others saying Southtown or Pearl/River North area OP.

It's the vibe, and you're correct. I wasn't sating everyone downtown is hipster and I wasn't saying everyone in the medical center are put together professionals. I just don't want OP to limit himself to the inner core when there are plenty of good options north too.

The Rim area has a lot of restaurant/bars that are opening so living in the area could be an option which is also close to UTSA.

King William and Pearl area are also hot spots for fun. Of course I don't do the late night scene but happy hours are great. Stone Oak I don't know about the night life really but that is my area of town but happy hours are great at the area restaurants and bring out a nice crowd but may be older then what you are wanting.

I've definitely been in certain bars that appear to be all hipster. I remember one where I swear I was at a lumberjack convention. But, that is more the exception than the rule (and it may have been a Halloween thing). I just don't see the stereotype on a regular basis. Mostly I see a mix of people, lots of professional types mixed in with your artists, tattoos (though professionals with tattoos are normal too), and all sorts in between. I've also been in bars where I thought there must be a banking convention...

I also agree there's no need to limit one's self to the urban core if the northside is more the OP's vibe. I think the urban core offers more, more that's diverse, and more that's walkable, but it's not for everyone.
