Haight-Ashbury

Overview

High-end boutiques and classy shops, trendy restaurants and cafes, and the long-revered pastel-colored Victorians of San Francisco's signature architectural style, distinguish the quaint neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury. Though it was once the setting of free love and the bohemian lifestyle of hippies, it is now the site of busy professionals, though it's not uncommon to witness a peace-chanting drum circle every now and then.

Quick Facts

Amenities

This community has numerous amenities available for residents to enjoy.

Homes

If you're in the market for a new home, Haight-ashbury has a fantastic variety of designs to choose from.

Where to Live

Typical residents in this neighborhood are renters. Demand is high for condos and apartments, found in period-style multi-story homes with stair-step entrances. Small yards are desirable for young families but come with a considerable price. Brick-style lofts and modern refurbished homes also line the manicured streets of Haight-Ashbury.

Where to Eat

Health nuts will love the fresh options of local eateries here. Many places serve only the best organic ingredients for health conscious locals. Sure there are your typical sandwich eateries but there is a significant presence of exotic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine as well. Enjoy belly-dancers at restaurants on Haight Street while feasting on Moroccan platters or try Ethiopian food for a spicy and alternative meal.

What You'll See

Young couples, free-thinkers, families with children, and young professionals congregate in this section of the city. Culture, arts, and music thrive in this vibrant neighborhood as well. Galleries and yoga centers, colorful murals, and local vintage shops draw in tourists from all over the world.

Friday Night Fun

With Irish and British pubs, pool halls, dance venues, and live bands, the nightlife in Haight has maintained its reputation as a trendy social hot spot. Check out bars off Haight Street to experience a quirky Brit pub where you can throw darts and catch up with all of your mates. Not your scene? There are a dozen of other bars along Haight Street. Just keep walking until you find one that suits your fancy. After hitting up the pubs, or for a more reserved evening, take in a showing at the renowned Red Victorian Movie House, a beloved cinematic local treasure where you can sink down in thick couches to enjoy an offbeat film.

The Perfect Sunday

Walk the lush grounds or picnic at one of the oldest San Francisco parks, Buena Vista Park, where grand eucalyptus trees line the paths and viewing is optimum for home and city views. On second Sundays in June, visit the Haight Street Fair and enjoy native bands, local goods, and excellent food stands. Visit the infamous Grateful Dead House on Ashbury Street where the band and other transients once occupied. End your day visiting favorite local spot Amoeba Music on Haight Street, which is suggested to be the "World's Greatest Record Store" by Rolling Stone magazine.
