One of the best kept secrets for many years, Potrero Hill was once the blue collar home of shipping docks, storehouses, and the simple shops and bakeries frequented by the families who called it home. The big turnaround came on the heels of the dot-com revolution when many of the warehouses and factories in the area were transitioned into the live-work lofts and offices we know today. Development along Third Street has solidified this area's reputation as an exciting destination, with an unparalleled ease of commute to downtown SF.
Among Potrero Hill's many assets, its sunny weather, fantastic views, and ready access to all highways rank high on the list. A hardy neighborhood, there are a great many early Victorians along its charming streets which remarkably withstood the earthquake of 1906.
Eateries, bars and shops along 18th street are plentiful in options. The classic watering hole Blooms, named for the heroine of Ulysses, offers pool tables, awe-inspiring views, and fantastic people watching. Chez Papa offers the best French Provencal bistro cuisine this side of the Sierra Nevada. And please don't miss Farley's, where an easy-going coffee drinking crowd enjoy daily brews strong enough to cut through any misty morning.
Students and young folks help liven things up just enough thanks to the nearby California College of Art campus, the California Culinary Academy, and local bar The Bottom of the Hill, which hosts an amazing array of music acts not to be missed. You'll find plenty of shopping and grocery options close to 16th and Potrero.
