Poised on its Californian peninsula, San Francisco is an energetic enclave with a storied libertine history, undeniable entrepreneurial fervour and vibrant cultural patronage. We’ll help you navigate the varied and rolling cityscape, from the unhurried beachside allure of the Outer Sunset to the psychedelic hippie haze still prevailing in the Haight-Ashbury. We’ll direct you to the glitziest art deco cinemas and show you where to enjoy everything from freshly shucked oysters to a jam-packed burrito. Karl the Fog may never be too far away but who doesn’t enjoy a bit of moody mist? Pull on some layers and head for the sprawling hills.

The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals our favourite places in each city we cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and our favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
