Create Your Own San Francisco Adventure

Very few places have such a celebrated history or coveted allure. The city beckons with endless adventure and thrilling possibilities. And Hotel Zeppelin puts you in the center of the city’s many gems right at Union Square. Who knows what’s in store for your visit – check out a new band, go to the theater, discover a speakeasy or let dinner be the main event. The city holds a promise of the unexpected.


Shopping

Westfield Shopping Centre

The Westfield Shopping Centre is just a short stroll form Hotel Zeppelin's front doors. This iconic shopping destination features  Bloomingdale’s West-Coast flagship store, the second-largest Nordstrom in the country and 170 additional world-class boutiques and dining venues.

Haight Street

The stretch of shops, referred to by San Francisco as the Upper Haight, was the center of '60s psychedelia. Despite gentrification and the proliferation of globally recognized stores, it still retains its hippie counterculture credentials, and is dotted with Victorian houses, anarchist bookstores, piercing salons and funky clothing shops.

Ferry Building Marketplace

San Francisco is renowned for its pioneering gourmet culture, and the heart of it can be found at the Ferry Building Marketplace, where shoppers choose from a dizzying variety of locally sourced items, including fresh produce, meats, artisan cheeses and more. The Ferry Building Marketplace is open daily, but be sure to catch the Farmer’s Market every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday if you're available.

Union Square

The true center of San Francisco, Union Square and its surrounding district showcases the city’s unique character and charm with the best in fashion, dining and entertainment. Meet friends and family in Union Square to begin a day of exploring shops and boutiques, sampling any of San Francisco’s numerous gourmet restaurants, taking in a world-class play or lollygagging away a few hours in the newly remodeled Metreon.

Chinatown

At every turn, candles burn and vivid silks grace the jam-packed window fronts, where import vendors sell nearly everything, including (but by no means limited to) carved Buddhas, paper parasols and regal mahogany furniture, perfect for exotic gifts or indulgent tourist fodder.

Clarion Alley

Clarion Alley is a small street in San Francisco between Mission and Valencia Streets and 17th and 18th Streets. The alley lies at what was once the center of a lagoon that covered the central Mission District area, although some historians dispute the existence of the fresh water lagoon. Originally called "Cedar Lane," the alley's name was changed around the turn of the twentieth century to Clarion Alley. The street is notable for community and arts activity, including the Clarion Alley Mural Project. 

Visit Clarion Alley to see the latest artist collaboration on these ever changing walls. What's today's vibe? 

Live Like a Local

Activities:

Black Cat – Ultra-Cool late night favorite throwback to the Tenderloin’s historic jazz clubs. Plan ahead and reserve a table downstairs to experience the late night Jazz sessions while experiencing Chef Alicia Jenish-McCarron’s incredible sharing menu along side some of the most beautifully crafted cocktails you’ll find in SF.

Curran Theater – The 1922 classic has been re-built as one of the best theaters in SF, now under the curation of Tony Award-Winner Carole Shorenstein Hays. Check their website for a current schedule.

Ruby Skye – An SF classic featuring live bands daily from electro-pop to punk to folk. Check their website for show times.

Jessica Silverman Gallery – One of the first to pioneer the gentrification of the Tenderloin, JSG is known for discovering emergent artists and launching them onto the national stage. A must visit for modern and concept driven art fans.  

Restaurants:

Quick & Easy:

The Halal Guys – NYC Classic, brand new in SF. Gyros, Falafel etc in classic street food format.

Pearls – Let your inner fat kid come out. Voted the best burger in SF many many times and for good reason. Double down on house-made milk shakes and combo curly and regular fries. Diet starts tomorrow.

Tacorea – Tiny restaurant packed with cool kids and serving up Korean style tacos. Everything is under $11 and delish.

Taqueria El Sol – Classic hole in the wall Mexican taqueria. They make the food to order and you are in and out in 5 minutes.

All Others:

Rove – Casual and trendy neighborhood restaurant featuring an amazing burger, chicken sandwich, salad and that’s it. Really. With beers on tap and plenty of wine, what more do you need?

Katana Ya – In the middle of tourist everything, slink downstairs for some of the best Ramen in the city. Extra-credit for the underground, unbeaten path arrival experience.

Le Colonial – Hidden in an alleyway – entering this multi-story restaurant/venue feels like stepping into a time warp. Think white table cloths, rattan furniture, dim lighting and a live jazz band playing after 10pm – this Vietnamese/French fusion is a perfect date night or large party venue.  

Liho Liho – From Ravi Kapur and the Nopa gang, this new-classic is critically acclaimed with good reason. Known for fresh and delicious Hawaiian fair – the open kitchen concept makes you feel right at home – on the island. Go downstairs before or after to Louie’s Gen-Gen room for amazing tropical drinks.

Huxley – From Kris Esqueda (Sons & Daughters) and Sara Hauman (Bar Agricole) is the quintessential neighborhood restaurant. Low key but date worthy, small but always available, delicious but not fussy. The menu changes often, but food is always fresh, local and creative.

Del Popolo – One of a few in the city, but straight up delicious pizza and salads in their coolest and most comfortable brick and mortar. Great for a weeknight bite with friends.

Aliment – Very SF neighborhood restaurant. Chef-driven, locally sourced menu that changes almost daily.

Akiko’s – Great Sushi- cool tiny restaurant. Awesome lunch or dinner spot after a day of shopping.

Matador – Laid back Mexican restaurant with great margaritas and house made Juices.

The Saratoga – From the Spruce and Village Pub team, this New American supper club style restaurant feels like a modern interpretation of the 1920’s. I suggest eating downstairs for a more intimate vibe – sip some vintage chartreuse and luxuriate.

Elephant Sushi (RX) – Really good sushi, not too expensive and cute hole in the wall style seating. If there is a line, go next door to the ultra-hip bar RX for a cocktail while you wait. 

Historical Sites

Golden Gate Bridge

An internationally recognized architectural icon, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge is an attraction that cannot be missed. Drive, cycle or walk across one of the world’s most beautiful bridges to experience its true glory.

Fort Point

From its vantage point overlooking the spectacular Golden Gate, Fort Point protected San Francisco harbor from Confederate and foreign attack during and after the U.S. Civil War. Its beautifully arched casemates display the art of the master brick mason from the Civil War period.

Lombard Street

With seven sharp corners in just 200 yards, Lombard Street promises to be the most winding, bendy street in California, if not the whole world, zigzagging down one of San Francisco’s many steep hillsides. Start a leisurely walk down this unique street from the cable car stop close to the top of Lombard Street, which was originally built with so many curves to make the street suitable for the city's many horses.

Alcatraz

Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US built fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes which saved the tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock—gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.
