Economy Shoe Shop, 1663 Argyle, 423-7463
You think the Economy Shoe Shop still has the Best Decor, and why not? You can spend time looking at exhibits of photos or other art by locals or listen to poetry readings in the intimate Shoe Shop, then stroll through to the Backstage with the tree and European bistro feel. Sit in the atrium under the stars, or go for the old English pub feel in the Diamond. All that under one roof—no wonder the Shoe Shop zapped the competition.
