This area used to be the first downtown in Cheonan in 1980’s and 1990’s. But as the time moved on, the area turned into a kind of ghetto. More than 60% of the shops were empty. But not anymore! This area is getting a new reputation by a group of young shop owners. Now it is getting ready to become the coolest and youngest shopping district in Cheonan. Many young shop owners renovated the old and abandoned buildings and transformed them into modern and unique shops with their brilliant ideas. There are Flower tea café, Travel café, English café & pub, Dessert café, Homemade Chinese food restaurant, Lunchbox restaurant, Animation Craft shop, Hanbok Shop, Gallery, Independent Bookstore, and so on. It started with about 5 shops in the first year and now there are more than 25 stores and even more shops are under the planning right now. The whole area is becoming a symbol for young entrepreneurs. There are also cool things around such as Heungheung Lab (Click here : https://fun.cheonan.go.kr/heungheung-shopping-mall/Heungheung Lab), Cheonan Station Underground Shopping Mall (Click here : https://fun.cheonan.go.kr/cheonan-underground-shopping-center/), Oh-Rock Night Market (Click here : https://fun.cheonan.go.kr/oh-rock-night-market/), Artcube 136 (Click here : http://artcube136.kr/) and Chungnam Music Lab (Click here : http://www.cnmusicfactory.com/). To visit, take any bus goes to Cheoan station, it is across from the station. More than half of buses in Cheonan goes there, so you won’t have a problem.
