Around Mission Dolores

The neighborhood is almost perfectly cut in half, sometimes making it seem like two different worlds colliding at an intersection. The southern half near 20th and Church, you have the aforementioned Dolores Park where you can find tennis courts, dog walkers, and small cafes. While up top along 16th Street you get a far more suburban feel, with stunning views of the city.

Mission Dolores is surrounded by tons of great places to eat with most of the upscale restaurants located up the hill. Mission Dolores also has some of the best Ethiopian and Mexican food in the area. You can also find locally-owned bakeries for fresh baked treats. You can take a stroll down 18th Street to find excellent steak houses and BBQ restaurants that usually have a bar and in some cases live music.

Mission Dolores is a rather busy side of town. The closer you are to the park the more you're sure to be surrounded by crowds of people from all over the city. The assortment of shops, street side music performers, as well as the abundance of local art and events make this neighborhood seem far more alive than any other place in the city.

When it comes to having a good time on a Friday night, this neighborhood is all about the bar scene and music. Near Guerrero Street there are entertainment venues that showcase a variety of music genres like indie and traditional jazz to abstract EDM. While up the hill on 16th Street there is a more easygoing crowd with classy lounges, art galleries, and the famous Roxie Theater that is a local favorite.

Dolores Park is the epicenter of an easy Sunday in the neighborhood. People come from all over the city to bask in the sun, host a BBQ, play with their dogs, or play a game of tennis at one of the open courts. The only rival for the park is the couple of brunch places popular with families that dot the lower side of the area. If you want to avoid the crowds, stroll along the great trails on 17th Street where you can check out gorgeous historic homes and churches.
