Downtown is the beating heart of San Francisco. Union Square shoppers, Financial District (or FiDi) workers, and entertainment seekers all convene at this epicenter of commerce and culture. Michelin-starred restaurants, an esteemed Theater District, and classic bars sit alongside architectural landmarks, like the iconic Transamerica Pyramid.
Locals and tourists alike follow Market Street down to the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building’s shops, restaurants, and famed thrice-weekly farmer’s market. Streets bustle with showgoers at The Curran and professionals seeking a happy hour cocktail. Neighborhood haunts like Tadich Grill – in business in one form or another since 1849 – serve up meals and history in equal measure. Local dives like Specs bring color and character.
Downtown connects eras and backgrounds in a way few neighborhoods can. It’s a wholly unique, lively mix of classic and modern San Francisco.
Downtown is bordered by tech hub SoMa, lively, historical Chinatown, and shopping mecca Union Square. Market Street, the City’s main thoroughfare, runs directly through the neighborhood. This means plentiful BART, MUNI, and bus stops, making Downtown especially commuter-friendly.
Downtown is a crowd pleaser. Retail hustle and business bustle keep Union Square and the Financial District buzzing with activity all day. By night, the heart of the city is single and ready to mingle. Endless entertainment options make it easy to fall for the vibrant urban vibe. World-class restaurants, trendsetting bars, and thumping music venues keep ‘em coming back for more.
Live like a boss in the heart of the city. Downtown is well-oiled work/play hybrid. The hardworking Financial District is all business and Union Square is shopping, dining and entertainment central. An all-star lineup of theaters, bars, and restaurants light up the nightlife. Catch a performance at The Curran, savor seafood at Farallon, and cap off the night with a cocktail at the Burritt Room. Linger ‘til last call – you’re practically home already, after all!
