The City by the Bay is full of iconic sights, incredible landmarks and a rich, diverse culture. San Francisco’s distinct neighborhoods bring all of this to life, attracting people from all over the world – and our very own Bayview neighborhood is no exception!

Bayview is known for many things, including its creative visionaries, phenomenal local businesses (a la Flora Grubb), repurposed collaborative spaces and vibrant community spirit.  Fun fact: for two years in a row, Bayview won the SF Curbed, Curbed Cup, an annual award for San Francisco’s “Neighborhood of the Year.”

The celebrated neighborhood is definitely a place to live, play, work and connect – and here are our top 5 reasons why:

A Vibrant Home for Artists and Creatives

The San Francisco Shipyard is home to one of the nation’s largest artist communities in the United States; more than 250 artists in working studios.  A brand new building is being developed with the intent to house amazing studios, a gallery and space for artists, musicians and writers.

The Eclectic Cookery is Heating Up

The Cookery found a new home in a renovated space on the eastern edge of The SF Shipyard. This shared-use commercial kitchen rents its facilities out to caterers, restaurants, mobile food trucks and more. This is a great space for cooks, bakers, and artisan producers!

Revitalized Storefront at The SF Shipyard

The Storehouse at The San Francisco Shipyard is a specialty general store where delightful conversation, delicious food, aromatic craft coffee and San Francisco sundries reside. It is nestled on the waterfront with a welcoming environment that reflects its lively community. This is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and do some work or catch up with a friend!

Crafted Scene and Bars

The legendary Sam Jordan’s Bar and Grill and some fresh faces on the block – including Seven Stills and Laughing Monk Brewing – blend both past and present. Bayview’s breweries attract people from all over, both beer aficionados and those just looking for a great spot on a Sunday afternoon.

 A Global Cuisine Hub

The diversity in culture is also reflected in the Bayview food scene. You can expect southern style cuisine from Auntie April’s Restaurant and All Good Pizza serves up Neapolitan style brick over pizza with an all-good rep!
