Taquilla Bar next to Tacolicious. Though the cocktail menu is quite short at this Mission spot attached to the restaurant Tacolicious, agave fans will be floored by the list of more than 300 tequilas and mescal served by the glass or carafe; a small selection of botanas (snacks) is another reason to vie for one of a few barstools in the narrow sliver of a space, where an arty arrangement of mason jars tiling the ceiling creates a warm glow

Bay Bridge connects San Francisco to the East Bay. In 2016, San Francisco installed an LED art installation on the north side of the Bay Bridge as a temporary installation. Since then it has become a permanent installation and is the largest LED light installation in the world. If you are walking on the Embarcadero at night, it's definitely worth checking out. I would recommend grabbing a drink at Water Bar at night while you enjoy the lights.Check out this article if you want to read more about the lights: https://www.sftravel.com/article/what-you-need-know-about-bay-lights-worlds-largest-light-art-installation If you are there at night.

This food artisan marketplace is right on the Embarcadero. On the weekends there is a farmer's market here as well as good restaurants and shops to check out inside the Ferry Building. You are also, right on the Embarcadero which is a great walk on a nice day.
Along the streets, brightly colored rainbow banners flutter from lamp posts and flagpoles, welcoming visitors to San Francisco’s Castro District. The historic center of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender)community reflects a vibrant neighborhood popular with young families, tech workers, an artist community and filled with popular boutiques, bars and restaurants attracting a wide circle of patrons. The Castro District, then known as Eureka Valley, was an immigrant working-class neighborhood heavily settled by Scandinavians through the 1920s, followed by the Irish. It gained popularity with San Francisco’s gay community at the time Haight Ashbury flourished around another element of America’s counterculture during the 1967 Summer of Love. The name Castro was adopted from the landmark art deco movie house of that name. More can be learned at the GLBT History Museum on 18th Street near Castro Street, first of its kind in the nation.

On the cutting edge of ethical fashion, everyone's favorite basics brand has made the leap from the interwebs with a shiny new flagship store on Valencia Corridor. So you're wondering, what's the big deal about this new store on Valencia Street? For starters, it's bigger. And obviously better, with offerings you can't even find in New York's Prince Street shop. The space is as you'd probably expect: minimalist and pleasant, with the Everlane aesthetic is apparent in thoughtful design elements like tiered geometric shelving, fair wood countertops, and sunshine pouring through lovely round skylights in every fitting room. Fabulous place to buy clothes
