An Iconic San Francisco Community

Historic architecture meets burgeoning shops and eateries, encapsulating the iconic elements of San Francisco. Victorian influences lend charm, while a dynamic populace infuses the neighborhood with urban sophistication.

Nob Hill provides a portal to the past, to a time when a few families ruled the west’s newest and most exciting city. It’s changed plenty over the years, yet it still symbolizes San Francisco as a shining city full of promise and as a sepia-toned one proud of its glorious past.

For some, this is the only neighborhood in town. From its high-rise, high-end towers to the urban serenity of Huntington Park, Nob Hill is the epitome of old-world elegance. It’s a lively, diverse neighborhood with all manner of residents, dozens of restaurants of all types, a growing retail scene, and proximity to almost everything in San Francisco’s core.

Those who live atop Nob Hill enjoy a much quieter lifestyle than those who set up camp near busy Polk Street, where dinner and drinks are just a short stroll away. Further west, the neighborhood changes: the high-rises are replaced with mid-rise apartment and condo buildings, and the restaurant, shop, bar, and club choices increase by the thousands. However, it still has its share of neighborhood mom-and-pop establishments, but the growing nightlife scene has made it a must-see for the young and active.
