Lots of great artists perform here. We went to see the Portuguese fado singer, Ana Moura and her fabulous band. The view and acoustics were grand, even from the $35 seats. You can't go wrong here.

This is one of the best performance spaces in San Francisco. It's fairly large, yet feels intimate. Great place to see a concert. Cool hip location. And you can bring a beverage into the theater!

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
