It’s 5pm, do you know where your cocktail is? Chances are, bar-stocked Western Addition has just the right the post-work liquid courage you need to get your night started. You’ll surely savor living in Western Addition with its fascinating mix of newfangled/upscale/hipster joints and old-school/down-home/tried-and-true flavor.

Hungry/thirsty for a unique culinary experience? Club Waziema serves up delicious Ethiopian food and inexpensive cocktails in the evening. Love cooking and browsing vintage shops? Do. Not. Miss. Cookin’ – a vintage ‘appurtenance’ shop with a witty and chatty proprietor and TONS of recycled cooking-related goods. Another must? Matching Half Café, where you can linger over your latte at an outdoor table for hours, alternating between reading a few pages of your book and taking in the neighborhood scene.

The Mill, a high-end bakery where you catch up with a friend over tea and $4 slices of fancy toast is besieged with long lines as a testament to its success. Nearby Eddie’s Café is the perfect antidote to hipster-overload, and offers up the perfect greasy cure to a bad hangover (you’ll be treated like family and get some authentic, old-school SF flavor). Need a gift for someone special (such as yourself)? The Perish Trust is your dreamy treasure trove that’s somewhere between a museum and a curiosity shop; yes, it’s highly curated, but that’s the draw – the offerings are singular and the space delightful. Music is in the air in this soulful part of town. Check out the African American Art & Culture Complex for emerging artists, the Fillmore for big headliners, or the Jazz Heritage Center for a brassy blast from the past.

Multiple MUNI buses frequent the Western Addition. With its central location and convenient transport options (not to mention biking and Uber), the city is yours to explore – should you choose to leave the nest.
