Hotaling Place has incredible historical significance in San Francisco.

If you have ever explored Jackson Square, you may have stumbled across a special cobblestone street called Hotaling Place. Hotaling Place has incredible historical significance in San Francisco. It was at one-time horse stables and also housed a whiskey factory that survived the 1906 earthquake. The apartments above Villa Taverna, a private club established in 1960 and located on Hotaling, were once the home of Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Today’s Hotaling Place is home to Isabel Marant, Allbirds, and the recently updated Foster-Gwin gallery. Just steps a few blocks away is Cotogna, one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco.
 
 

Keeping Fit on Union

When it comes to Marina/Cow Hollow/Pac Heights residents who invest in keeping healthy, they could live on Union.  Between Equinox in the old theater, Soul Cycle, BodyworkSF, and a handful of yoga and pilates studios, there are plenty of classes and trainers to go around.
 
Look good while sweating it out and stop by Sweaty Betty or Lululemon. Grab a hint of water on your way to class (and maybe Loving Cup on your way out?!)
 
This 7x7 article covers all of this and more, including multiple places for juice and healthy food!

Getting Social On Union

The bars on the union are unrivaled. Although some of these hot spots may be closed because of Covid right now, there is a good chance they will return. Many a marriage union began on Union!
 
The Bus Stop was a required stop for me when visiting SF from Santa Clara University, and I know more than one couple who met there (ordering pizza from their landline to the restaurant of course.)
 
When I moved to Pacific Heights, my roommate and I would go down the hill to Taco Tuesday the BlueLight, which is also the official bar for many college alumni groups. If you’ve graduated from the college bar scene, check out The Brixton, which is still young and vibrant but elevated.
 
Oh- the article would not be complete without a mention of the Mauna Loa and their arcade scene in the back.

Brunching on Union, Until Dinner

Union Street was made for boozy brunches. Perry’s, Rose’s Cafe, Terzo, Flores, and Wildseed can take you from mimosas to cocktail hour.
 
There is something for everyone on Union Street. I’m now walking up the “hill” from the Marina to check out Luke’s Local regularly. It’s the perfect market for a quick bite or to do a weekly grocery run.  Local tip- stop by the liquor store next door for dreamy frozen yogurt and the Bud Stop across the street for the BEST blooms in San Francisco. But don’t get a ticket while parking at the bus stop!
