Alamo Square, San Francisco
Alamo Square in San Francisco is best known for its “Postcard Row,” a stunning view of seven Painted Ladies and the city skyline. Alamo Square has an impressive history dating back to the early 1800s as a watering hole. Now it is a neighborhood gathering spot surrounded by stunning Victorians, all as impeccably maintained as the famous homes on Steiner Street.
But the neighborhood is much more than the Alamo Square Historic District. Real estate also consists of early twentieth century Edwardian flats, which also populate the nearby neighborhoods of Anza Vista, Western Addition and North of Panhandle Area (NOPA). You’ll find many new parents and young singles moving to this up-and-coming area.
This migration is attracting a growth in restaurants, cafes, and bars, mainly along Divisadero. Consider NOPA, BlueJay Café, Little Star Pizza, Tsunami, Bar Crudo (coming soon), Alamo Square Seafood Grill, a homey breakfast at Eddie’s Café, and for amazing dessert try candybar. There are great cafes like Cafe Abir, Apollo Coffee, Mojo Bicycle Cafe and On The Corner (with good music at night). Funky bars include Fly Bar, Madrone, Bar 821, and MiniBar. There are even a few boutiques like Still Life.
Alamo Square real estate – from elegant mansions to flats and apartments – has history and unique offerings to make it a great place to live.
