The hipster population is spreading nationally and internationally. Skinny jeans-wearing, beard-toting twenty- and thirty-somethings are flocking to areas where they feel right at home.

These are areas chock-full of trendy food trucks, like in Austin's East Austin neighborhood; theater festivals, like in the Shimokitazawa neighborhood of Tokyo; and thrift stores, like in Stockholm's Södermalm.

After scouring the globe, we found the most hipster neighborhoods in cities around the world.

Barranco, Lima, Peru

Barranco is the historic bohemian district of Lima. The neighborhood is known for its park, Bajada de Baños, in which the famous Lima landmark, the Bridge of Sighs (pictured), runs right through the hip district along the banks of the Pacific Ocean. Young people go to the bridge to hang out and make their way to the best bars and clubs in town.

Popular nightlife spots are Santos and Expreso Virgen de Guadalupe Café Cultural, which is a piano bar inside an old train car.

Belleville and Ménilmontant (19th and 20th Arrondissements), Paris, France

The inexpensive rent, artsy culture, and gritty exterior make Belleville and Ménilmontant some of the few hipster neighborhoods left in Paris. The two areas, which used to be wine villages for weekend getaways, are now very hip, closely related Paris neighborhoods.

The Parc de Belleville shows off the city's skyline and has trails for exploring and smalls cafes nearby to take in the greenery over a cup of coffee.

The neighborhoods are filled with restaurants, galleries, studio spaces, bars, and clubs; head to La Bellevilloise which operates as all of five things.

District VII, Budapest, Hungary

District VII, also known as Elizabeth Town, is the Jewish center of Budapest and is home to many of the city's historical landmarks. The area is also a hip hotel hub, where hotels like the Continental Zara and the VAM Design Center feature famous art exhibits.

Hipsters flock to Kiraly Street and Kazinczy Street for street food, pubs, kosher shops, and the best nightclubs in the city — particularly the well-known derelict "ruin pub," Szimpla Kert.

East Austin, Austin, Texas, USA

East Austin has adopted the food truck craze with food trucks like the East Side King and Gourdough's. The trucks line up outside East Austin's hip bars and clubs ready to serve anything from doughnuts to soul food.

The neighborhood also hosts the HOPE Farmer's Market every Sunday. 

For happening nightlife and live music, head to 6th Street and check out venues like Hotel Vegas, Volstead Lounge, and Whislers, where bartenders make custom cocktails.
