  • Address: Between Steiner and Gough Streets, San Francisco, California, USA, USA
Known for its vibrant culture, often busy by both day and night, Cow Hollow is a central San Francisco neighborhood that attracts many of the city’s young professionals. At the heart of the scene is Union Street, a pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare lined with cafes, antique shops, wellness centers, bars, and restaurants. Before it was a trendy urban area, it was an open valley where cows grazed (hence its name!) Its proximity to the Marina and coastline also made it the place many fishermen resided. 

Though now filled with boutique shops and posh apartments, the old Victorian houses lining Cow Hollow streets are reminiscent of this area’s past.  If history is what you’re after, you’ll find it in the Octagon House, a 19th century home built to let in natural light from all angles. As for modern city life, a variety of cuisines and an active nightlife make this area a draw for many.

Practical Info

Cow Hollow is situated in between Russian Hill and the Presidio, with Pacific Heights and the Marina on either side. The Muni bus 22 stops at Union Street on its way down Fillmore Street. The neighborhood is best explored on foot.
