Don’t be obtuse – Duboce Triangle has all the right angles. See what we did there? Duboce Triangle is actually an incredibly well rounded neighborhood. Bordered by Castro, Mission, and the Haight, this central, ultra walkable location is spared much of SF’s mood dampening fog. Top that sunny disposition off with lushly landscaped gardens, beautifully preserved Victorians, plenty of public transport, and laid-back nightlife. It’s hard to argue with current residents who claim that Duboce Triangle is the place to be!
This area is a great place to give free rein to your inner outdoorsy inclinations. Play fetch with the four-legged locals at Duboce Park, where the pooches run wild and chase tennis balls like it’s there job. Jonesing for the limelight? Lay down some sick vocals or at least win over the karaoke crowd at the Mint. Want to show off your supple wrists? Go down in history as a pinball wizard at Brewcade. If you’re on the hunt for a hot spot for a high-ticket date, Duboce Triangle’s own French bistro, L’Ardoise Bistro, serves up Francophile aphrodisiac cuisine and fine dining delights like foie gras terrine and rack of lamb. Vegans – don’t despair! Duboce Park Café will keep a sugary smile on your face with vegan donuts. Café du Nord and The Swedish American Hall are longstanding music-lover meccas, and lively dives like Lucky 13 give the area rock star attitude.
When you feel the need to branch out and trek to more distant San Francisco destinations than the neighboring ones, the multiple MUNI lines, buses, and vintage streetcars that stop in this area make it easy. The Duboce Triangle neighborhood is bounded by Market Street on the southeast, Castro Street on the west, Church Street on the east, and Duboce Street on the north. The Mission and Mission Dolores are a short jaunt away as well. Head straight for this axis of entertainment, coziness, and pet-friendly living.
