Haight St
(near Market St)
San Francisco, CA 94117


Lower Haight is perhaps the younger sister of the venerable Haight-Ashbury neighborhood; young hipsters come here to get their music, clothes, and eats in a funky, counterculture neighborhood. The restaurants are cheap and flavorful, with plenty of ethnic flavors and variety. Stores range from boutique record shops to antique furnishings; restaurants range from chic martini bars to delicious ethnic holes-in-the-wall. Come here for a real taste of what the young hipster elite of San Francisco are up to these days.
