Hayes Valley

An Area of Culture


Off The Beaten Path

Address:
Hayes St
(between Laguna and Franklin Sts)
San Francisco, CA

Description

Although in the past it had a seedier reputation akin to New York's Times Square, today's Hayes Valley is the ultimate destination for San Francisco's genteel symphony-goers and opera fans. The neighborhood's location right by the War Memorial Opera House and Louise Davies Symphony Hall makes Hayes Valley a spot for top-notch shopping. There are not many restaurants, but you can find in their place a plethora of bistros and brasseries, or mingle with moneyed San Franciscans in one of the many art galleries. All the shops are chic and lively, so make a reservation if you are trying to catch a quick bite before the show.
