Military Road provides plenty of hum, with plenty of old-fashioned high-street stores and more modern restaurants.
During the week, Military Road ferries busy commuters back and forth from work but come the weekend, it’s also the spot where locals go for provedores, cold-drip coffee and the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace – a stunning 1930s Art Deco cinema, complete with Wurlitzer pipe organ.
