Holladay City - There's a New Village in Town
The community of Holladay has been undergoing a facelift over the past 10 years. The exit of several gone, but not forgotten, businesses (like Video Verns, Pardners Restaurant, Gepettos) has made way for the new, allowing the once sleepy community to be revitalized. Settled on July 29, 1847 by a group of pioneers led by John Holladay, Holladay became the first village settled away from Salt Lake City. Now, 170 years later, the new Village Center is the latest and greatest walkable community in the Salt Lake Valley.
From 3 Cups, a beautiful neighborhood coffee shop, to several restaurants (Caputo's, Copper Kitchen, Taqueria 27, and the less known, but one of my favorites, Layla Mediterranean Grill), to the ever so popular food trucks at the Soho Food Park, there are plenty of food and drink options to choose from. Have children? There's the new-ish City Hall Park and upcoming Knudsen Park (ok, this one's not IN the village center, but it WILL be a Holladay favorite), and some fun treat options - Top It, Iced, and another oldie but goodie Leslie's French Pastries. Need YOU time? There's The Yoga Center and Amy Boutique, a fun clothing/holiday/everything boutique, and we can't forget The Store Stuff, one of Holladay's original boutiques. Time for a haircut? Check out Blues Barbershop (another personal favorite) or Lunatic Fringe. Add to this the upcoming Harmon's market (and plenty more we haven't mentioned but you'll have to come check out for yourself), and it's clear that the Village Center provides all of the conveniences for its residents.
