South Beach is one of San Francisco’s most desireable newer neighborhoods. Located South of Market, it is surrounded by the renovated Embarcadero and Bay Bridge to the North and East, 3rd Street and King Street to the West and South.
For decades, SOMA included the real estate now known as South Beach. This area, which mainly consisted of warehouses, storage yards and dilapidated piers, began transforming around 1981. This is when the city began to transform the area into a mixed-use development. Now it is one of the ritziest neighborhoods in The City. Considered by some to be the new Nob Hill, South Beach is home to some of the most desirable and valued real estate, condominiums, live/work lofts, and restaurants in San Francisco. Additionally it gets some of San Francisco's best weather (micro-climate).
One of the most prominent features of South Beach is AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. This has enticed many new services and restaurants into the area since its arrival over a decade ago. It's a quick walk to the always-exciting and gourmet Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building, and on the way down the Embarcadero check out Pat Kuleto's Waterbar and Epic Roasthouse as well as the historically and critically acclaimed Boulevard and newer addition Prospect.
New developments along with thrilling nightlife and dining options give this neighborhood a heavily cosmopolitan air. South Park and Rincon Hill are attractive areas within South Beach. Over a century ago, the wealthiest merchants in the area lived in South Park, which was founded by Englishman George Gordon in 1854. South Park is an unofficial hub for the neighborhood. This little park offers a playground, picnic areas and is now a quaint oasis surrounded by cafes, restaurants, shops, condominiums, victorians and lofts. It was San Francisco's first gated community. In the midst of all the change in South Beach, walking the loop around South Park Avenue, one can easily go back in time to 1852 when privileged homeowners needed keys to enter their neighborhood. Now the area is home to architects, designers, photographers, restaurants and boutiques.
Rincon Hill, also rich with history, has become a center of significant development, including at least five hi-rise condominium buildings (and more to come), and mixed-use buildings on landscaped residential streets. This area continues to develop and evolve.
For all these reasons the hub between South Beach, SoMa, and Mission Bay have greatly increased the level of public transit service. This is only area where one can walk to any mode of public transit the city has to offer. Caltrain, Ferry's, Muni, BART and buses are all accessible within a flat walk. Freeway access to the Bay Bridge, 280 and 101 is exceptionally easy as well, making South Beach a commuter's dream come true. To the east, the Embarcadero is heaven for cyclists, joggers and walkers. Bay views will take your breath away. SOMA and Yerba Buena border South Beach to the west, offering world class cultural activities and nightlife into the wee hours of the morning.
SoMa (South of Market)
The South of Market (SOMA) district of San Francisco offers a rich and complex collection of people and experiences. While it may be known primarily for its tech start-ups, warehouses, nightclubs and art spaces, it also offers some of the best hotels, restaurants, cultural attractions, as well as stylish and modern real estate like lofts and condominiums. The vast majority of all new developments reside in SoMa (which includes South Beach & Mission Bay). There are many changes happening here, and the excitement is palpable. New stores, buildings and restaurants are being built every day. For example, the next large redevelopment project in SOMA is the Transbay Terminal. See an animated fly-through here.
Near Moscone Center you’ll find the picturesque Yerba Buena Gardens, cultural institutions like the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (or SF MoMa), the Museum of the African Diaspora, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and for pop culture, you’ll find the Cartoon Art Museum and the Metreon. For the kids, see Zeum and the Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center.
South of Market has become home to some of the most prominent restaurants in Northern California, including 25 Lusk, the W Hotel’s XYZ, Ame (within the new St. Regis), Fifth Floor, Marlowe, LuLu, Heaven's Dog (inside the SOMA Grand), COCO500 and Zuppa (for wild times check out the Supper Club and AsiaSF). Some of the most famous SOMA clubs include 111 Minna, Club Six, Mercury Lounge, Mighty, Butter, Hotel Utah Saloon, The Cat Club, Slim’s, 1015 Folsom, The Stud, the legendary End Up and the ever-present DNA Lounge.
As the center of urban living in San Francisco, SOMA offers easy access via CalTrain, Muni and BART. You’ll find grocery shopping a step away at Whole Foods, Safeway and Trader Joe’s. And there is a wide range of activities like great shopping from the San Francisco Centre, to theatres like the Sony Metreon, to all the seasonal activities available in Yerba Buena Gardens.
Featuring the Giant's Baseball Park stadium and a bustling marina, the Mission Bay neighborhood offers opportunities for waterfront living with outstanding views of the Bay Bridge. Vistas of the boats bobbing in McCovey Cove combine with a cozy "downtown" feeling, a stunning skyline, and the bay's balmy weather in this unique district. The magnificent ballpark infuses vitality and excitement, both visually and in its ability to draw enthusiastic and friendly crowds. Housing choices include high-rise condominiums that take advantage of the area's superb views and offer luxurious amenities. Steps to CalTrains, Muni's T3 and N-Judah lines as well as easy 280 and 101 access creates for a bustling area easily accessible. Now home to shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment, the area continues to grow and develop on a daily basis. Parks, schools and more attractions are in the works. This is San Francisco's newest neighborhood.
