Poplar Street is known for its historic warehouses and distinctive brick buildings where the thriving restaurant, cafe and shopping scene attract people of all ages. Another popular dining area is SOL, otherwise known as “South of Lichfield.” This is one of New Zealand’s hippest, trendiest neighbourhoods and features some of the country’s leading restaurants and cafes.
