The 300 block of Clematis has a combination of businesses but traditionally, it's known for its stores. There are several stores that have been there since the 1920s, making this a truly historical block. In addition, there was a new wave of furniture stores opening up in recent years, making this a great destination for those in need of furniture. (Unfortunately, the Z Gallerie, the largest of those furniture stores, closed its Clematis location in January 2009).

In addition, there are some restaurants (such as Roxy's) and nightclubs. Also, the 300 block houses the famous Jimmy John's sandwich shop, which is extremely popular for the lunch crowd. Behind Jimmy John's, there is an area with various other fast food type businesses, and a new eating place called Massa's opened in 2008 replacing another business that had disappeared last year (but it closed June 2009).

The wave of new restaurants now opening on this block is nothing short of amazing. Hot Pie Pizza opened around the corner in 2009. Soma (a vegan cafe with yoga) will be opening soon at the corner, along with the much-heralded Don Ramon's Cuban restaurant, including its 24-hour walk-up window. Next door to that, Mambo's Italian restaurant has already opened, and next to that, the huge "Off The Hookah" restaurant and nightclub will also be opening soon. Further down the street past Jimmy John's, Uncle Louie G's Italian Ice and Ice Cream has already opened. Finally, on the other side of the street, Roxy's has opened up its rooftop bar, which is already serving drinks and will become another new restaurant in the coming months.

The 300 block was hurting in early 2009 but has seen an explosion of activity and new businesses later on in the year. But let's not forget the pre-existing businesses "around the corner" from the 300 block -- those businesses located on Olive or Dixie Highway within one block of Clematis Street. These businesses include two major salons, a tailor, a cigar shop, Leila's Restaurant, the new Hot Pie Pizza restaurant, the Home World store, and the ever-popular lunch chain Subway. The Subway, right across Dixie Highway from the new City Center, is always packed at lunch time, yet the servers are very efficient so even if the line is long, you'll get the sandwich you want relatively fast. Finally, a new Relaxation Remedies store has recently moved from City Place to a store space near Jimmy John's.
