Best Place to Be a Bohemian
July 28th, 2011
Attention, downtown hipsters: If you want to go Bohemian (of course you do, since we’re still in the midst of a crap economy), then you want to get a crib at L’Octaine. The handsome 51-unit courtyard building at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Gass accepts Section 8 vouchers—which helps subsidize apartments for low-income workers (here we’re talking bartenders and starving artists, not crack whores). This means you can get an affordable unit if you (or a low-income buddy) can qualify, and you can hang with cool neighbors such as artists and writers. Rents run as low as $515 a month; a mere $845 gets you three bedrooms. It’s boho living—but not too boho, as the complex also features a spa and workout rooms.
