This compact, concrete jungle of energy, style and international intrigue is a mecca for theater-enthusiasts, happy hour celebrants, and fashion-hungry urbanities with a lot of money to spend. During the day, the streets are filled with tourists making their way from the giant Gap on Powell over to Sanrio or Planet Hollywood with a required stop at Boudins for that world-famous sourdough bread bowl. But at night, when the financial district lets out, an impressive collection of restaurants and bars are waiting with open arms.

Among the best are the whimsical Farallon and The Grand Cafe. The theater district along Geary is one of the finest in the country, with low-price tickets available daily at a booth on the every-popular Union Square. Downtown is a key spot for former New Yorkers who start missing the tall buildings and bustle and need to be reminded why they moved in the first place.
