Southern Living magazine is an institution in the south. Our favorite recipes, decorating ideas and crafts all come from its glossy pages and colorful online stories. So of course, SoMa residents were thrilled to see our neighborhood featured as “The Next Great Neighborhood” on The Daily South blog. For those new to the neighborhood or just visiting, SoMa is what we call the area on the south end of Main Street. Slightly separate from the bustle of downtown, SoMa still maintains a vibrancy that you can only get in an urban setting. Regulars enjoy the fresh baked breads and goodies at Community Bakery and Boulevard Bread Company. We walk down streets that are adorned with art to our own community garden. We eat locally grown food at The Root Cafe and enjoy small batch ice cream at the Green Corner Store. And we often enjoy a band and nightcap at South on Main. We love our neighborhood. We love that this area surrounded by tree-lined streets and historic houses is once again home to a thriving business, art and entertainment scene. We hope you will join us at The Empress and learn to love it too!
