NOPA & Hayes Valley

Just east of the world famous Golden Gate Park rests the North Panhandle, or NOPA. This stretch of Victorian homes and scenic streets is home to a variety of culture-rich neighborhoods, cafes, galleries, coffee shops, tattoo parlors, and restaurants.

The environment opens many haunts where community members of all kinds can meet, collaborate, and share, giving an eccentric and energizing quality to the area. Nearly every type of food can be found here, from coffee shops and Italian, to some of the best Ethiopian food in The City. The landscape is dotted with hidden mini-parks, mossy stairwells and lush treescapes along the eastern side of Golden Gate Park, making this a neighborhood attractive to joggers and bikers alike.

Further east is Hayes Valley, a music lover’s dream. The San Francisco Opera, Symphony, and Ballet make their home here, attracting celebrities and politicians, making for some unique people-watching. But the evening doesn’t have to end at curtain call; one can simply head back to NOPA and go out for music and the social scene at The Independent. Foodies will enjoy the emergence of new and unique eateries as the entrepreneurial spirit of the area brings talented chefs and young startup restaurants to be tested and enjoyed.

The freeway that had been destroyed after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake has been replaced by community greens and new-growth trees along Octavia Boulevard. Even after 30 years, the revitalization of the area can still be felt the entire length of Fell street. You’ll find more to discover here than you ever imagined.
