Secured by the impressive high-culture structure of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center (housing the San Francisco Ballet, San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Symphony), Hayes Valley has a lot to offer after the closing curtain.
At night one can find concertgoers heading to belle epoque-styled Absinthe Brasserie & Bar. Up-and-coming chefs practice their trade, starting up restaurants that beg to be discovered by foodies, such as the classy and classic Hayes Street Grill; the Italian Caffe Delle Stelle and its roasted butternut-squash ravioli; and Frijtz – purveyor of Belgian mussels, frites and crepes.
Hayes Valley is a small neighborhood comprised of five square blocks. It has the ambience of a cultural village. The under-the-radar boutiques have made the district a destination for trendy people in need of the latest design and fashion trends. For those who desire a spiritual awakening, Hayes Valley is the abode of the San Francisco Zen Center, a light-filled Italianate building designed by Julia Morgan. There are more than a dozen Muni lines and a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Station at the base of Groove Street making commuting to and from work and other places around the district convenient and easy. The homes in Hayes Valley available for sale are largely single- and multifamily Victorians, the most popular being the postcard-perfect Painted Ladies along Alamo Square.
