This. The number of pretentious people in this city is absurd.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - also known as "the hippest little Capital on the Planet" ... it is seriously hip (a combination of San Francisco and Melbourne) ...

I think the top 5 hipster cities in Australia would be:

1 - Melbourne. Fitzroy seems to be hipster ground zero, plus there's the whole laneway cafe culture there that draws in a large hipster crowd.
2 - Sydney. Places like Newtown, Enmore, Marrickville, Glebe, Waterloo, Surry Hills and Darlinghurst are all hipster hot spots.
3 - Newcastle. Old steel manufacturing city, lots of derelict buildings in its CBD but these are slowly changing into cafes, small bars, galleries and small boutiques. Having a large university has helped the process.
4 - Adelaide. Emerging hipster culture in the inner city areas.
5 - Brisbane. Lots of hipsters around the Fortitude Valley area.

That is what I'm thinking as well as it is bohemian. Plus it is a techie city with Silicon Valley in the south.

I wouldn't call my city Rīga a hipster city. But some Italian travel something named our Peace street the hipsterest place on earth. Go figure...

There are about three very popular hipster places in Rīga. Peace street between Freedom and Tallinn streets really is the hipsterest with all the small creative businesses and a large chocolate factory. The buildings are a quite run down unlike most of the city center, but there are plans for improvements.




Then there is Andrejosta - a port territory in the city center. The port is moving out away from the city center and the hipsters are moving in.




And then there is Kalnciema quarter with it's weekly markets, open-air movie watching and creative shops. The best hipster place infrastructure-wise.

I agree. Hipsters have an important function in cities. They make run-down parts of the city interesting and attractive again. Just witness Barcelona, a city where hipsters played a huge role in paving the way for a renaissance of large parts of the downtown area (Born, Raval, Barceloneta, etc.). Detroit could use a hipster revival, as well.

While some hipsters, may almost be militant in their attitude (which is why I understand some of the harsh criticism of them), I usually find hipster neighborhoods to be very welcoming. It's also a myth that hipsters are just a bunch of free-riding moochers. Many of them are freelancers who later become quite successful with their businesses. The hipsters themselves are the main gentrifyers of the neighborhoods they take over and that's a good thing.

I never understood this hipster stuff. Pretentiously trying to be alternative and outstanding, yet following the same fashion, having the same gadgets etc. Personally I follow my own taste, the style I like regardless of what is fashionable at the moment and music I like, regardless of it being popular or not. And this is really being alternative, isn't it?

Maybe I'll go to some hipster city just to look at the hipsters and troll them

If there is one city in The Philippines that fits this category, it would be,

Baguio City
