Hello Pacific Heights

Pacific Heights is to San Francisco what Mayfair is to London: elegant, luxurious and unwaveringly exclusive. You don't stay here for the dive bars and thumping nightclubs, but rather for the Victorian-style architecture and to get a flavor of high society in San Francisco. The palatial houses and mansions were built when the wealthy inhabitants of nearby Nob Hill had to relocate following the earthquake of 1906. They never looked back (except to turn around and take in the wonderful views of San Francisco Bay) and the neighborhood has remained well-moneyed ever since.

Strut down Fillmore Street and pop into an uber-chic boutique store or two, enjoy a stroll and a sit down in Alto Plaza Park, tuck into something refined at a classy restaurant –  for a taste of the high life, you can't beat Pacific Heights. Wander south and you'll run into the neighborhoods of Lower Pacific Heights and Japantown, while to the north are the Golden Gate Bridge and the neighborhoods of Marina and Presidio.
