"HAIGHT ASHBURY, THE HAIGHT, UPPER HAIGHT" Other NEIGHBORHOODS Tip by rkearns
Other NEIGHBORHOODS, San Francisco: 33 reviews and 36 photos
Favorite thing: Haight Ashbury ("The Haight" or Upper Haight)
First of all, you will bombarded with other tourists, street urchins (middle class kids who left home to live on the street and wear the rebel jacket during the day), and old hippies who never left the 60's. It's a splash of flower paraphanalia, specialty shops and modern clothing stores. There are many bars, restaurants and transportation is easily accessible. Haight Ashbury is even close to Golden Gate Park. Take a couple of hours and stroll through this mish mash of past and present.
Zam Zam --Persian-themed hole in the wall with mural, full bar, red interior, good music on the juke box.
Hobson's --younger crowd, great sangria and lively, bright open space with couches and a juke box.
All You Knead --anything you are craving is probably on the menu...good old American food
Blue Front Cafe --Middle Eastern; the best hummus, with pita bread, olives and olive oil drizzled on top! yum!!
Pork Store Cafe --three words: corned beef hash (traditional American diner food)
Bia's --wonderful cheese platter, seared polenta cakes and a good wine selection.
Bang-On T-shirts --have anything you want permanently printed onto your solid tee!.....anything.
Amoeba --best music store EVER! rare finds
Ambiance --a chain store filled with dainty and stylish womens' clothing...feels like it's locally owned. great sale rack!
