Bows and Arrows
When Trisha Rhomberg and Olivia Coelho opened their vintage clothing store in 2007, that's all it was: a boutique for their vintage finds, and later for their own line of handmade wearables. Now the space is a charming chimera of art, clothes, and food, a hub for quirky culture and innovation. Behind the retail section, chefs from Fat Face serve up a simple and deliberate menu in a cozy café profiled by CBS. After a pressed sandwich or creative popsicle, diners relax with one of six craft beers on tap or a glass of sangria. Monthly art showcases display emerging talent in an airy gallery space, and the art collections even extend to Bows and Arrows' bathrooms. The multifaceted space also hosts live music acts and other gatherings, such as the regular Nerd Night for gamers, highlighted in the Sacramento Press.
