About Lower Haight

Lower Haight is famous for its history and connection to the counterculture spirit. Today, that legacy continues somewhat unbroken with some of the highest concentrations of beautiful victorian-era houses, vintage clothing shops, cafes, and smoke shops in the city. Though you may find far more upscale stores selling fragments from times past, Lower Haight has an undying charm that has persisted throughout the years. Maintaining both its iconic feel and look, Lower Haight is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city and for good reason.

Around Lower Haight

Most of the neighborhood is covered with old Victorian-style houses that the city is famous for. Lower Haight has a more suburban feel than the southern half of the neighborhood. Residences near Baker Street are quite lively and have many college residents who play sports and have picnics in the neighboring Buena Vista Park. Lower Haight is also home to a few unique galleries nestled in between residential houses right off the main street. They offer some edgier pieces than you would normally find in other touristy areas.

In comparison to most places in San Francisco, the Lower Haight can be a haven for meat eaters. Head over to Haight and Fillmore Streets for places to grab a bite if you're craving pizza, burgers, or even some sausages and beer. However, if you're looking to just grab a cup of coffee or have a light lunch, Baker Street has spots that serve more than a meat-stacked sandwich. Everything from spicy soups to veggie burgers, you're sure to find what you're taste buds are looking for.

Just as its history would suggest, Lower Haight does follow the tradition of diverse scenes all across the neighborhood. It's a common sight to see lots of street performers, parkside painters, and locals of all ages fueling up on coffee and tea at nearby cafes. Also, dogs are pretty much everywhere in this pet-friendly environment. You'll see people either jogging or playing a game of catch with their pets at the local park.

The nightlife between Pierce and Webster Streets, especially on the weekend, are great ways to spend a Friday night out. You can watch the game while dining and drinking at one of the sports bars or have a pint at an English-style pub. If you're more into live music and dancing, there are a few options on Divisadero Street that will get you moving through the late-night hours.

In contrast to the fast-paced Friday and Saturday night scene, Sunday can be spent pleasantly exploring this hilly side of town. Locals hang out at the Duboce Park that's perfect for a small picnic or gathering with friends. The park also has a dog play area where you can have fun with your four-legged friend. For hiking trails, Buena Vista Park is just across the Buena Vista Avenue. Shopping is also rather prevalent as you can peruse all the funky vintage shops that sell everything from clothing to old computers and gaming systems in the neighborhood.
