Lower Haight

The Lower Haight sits just east of its larger, more famous neighbor, Haight-Ashbury. What it lacks in tie-dye, it makes up for with all the modern city living staples – plus plenty of beautiful Victorian homes, colorful street art, and a quieter, more residential feel.

No-frills but amenity-filled, the ultra-walkable Lower Haight sits near Market Street’s Safeway and Whole Foods Market, as well as Hayes Valley and Divisadero Street’s hot spots. Haight Street is the neighborhood’s commercial center, full of a diverse assortment of shops, eateries, cafes, record stores, and more. Bars range from legendary craft beer purveyor Toronado to the renowned cocktails and football or trivia at Nickie's, while an array of restaurants serves cuisine from around the world – the down-home Southern food at Kate’s Kitchen draws an especially loyal brunch crowd.

There is no shortage of green space in the Lower Haight for dog walkers, joggers, and picnickers. Buena Vista Park – home to some of the most beautiful views in San Francisco – is a neighborhood favorite. Duboce Park, Koshland Community Park, Alamo Square Park, and Panhandle are also nearby.
