This retail hotspot is flush with chic boutiques that complement some of the most delectable restaurants San Francisco has to offer. Between Laguna and Gough Streets, bakeries, bars, and restaurants flourish, with shops sprinkled in between. Eateries range from the casual Biergarten and Souvla to more refined spots such as the acclaimed French establishment, Monsieur Benjamin. The vibrant bar scene is elevated by wine specialist Fig and Thistle and the tropical-themed Smuggler’s Cove.
The easygoing vibe and eclectic dining and drinking scene of this neighborhood draw weekend crowds to its iconic green stretches and streets. Bordered by the row of theaters along Van Ness Avenue, it is SF tradition to grab a bite in Hayes Valley before attending a performance at acclaimed venues such as Davies Symphony Hall or Herbst Theatre.
Central to the rest of the city, this region is a unique and vibrant nook eager to feed and entertain. Art is celebrated here through food, performance, and the sculptures of Patricia Green. Residents contribute to this hip community where eccentricity reigns and creativity blossoms.
