Oh, San Francisco. I think it’s been made clear to you all by now that we are in love (like the head over heels, over the moon kind of love) with our city. Not only is it home to Packed Party HQ, but it also has some of the best places to explore. No matter where we travel, we always seem to find our way back to the Bae Area (kidding about the “bae”...er, kinda); it’s where we call home.
Because we felt like we’re constantly being asked about the places we shoot and visit around the city, we decided to compile a list of our fave spots in SF that we dubbed “party worthy.” While it was pretty hard to narrow it down, we did it and shared our list below! We hope this gives you a peek into why San Francisco holds such a special place in our hearts, and why you should probably get out here to visit ASAP. Take a look below Beb, and let us be your tour guide for your 24 hours in San Francisco! Remember to use the hashtag #PackedPartyInSF if you hit up any of our favorite places so we can see your SF adventure, too!
1.) Let’s start from the top, shall we? Start your day by grabbing Breakfast at Jane on Fillmore St. Their breakfast is as tasty as it is cute (cause yeah, let’s be real their chevron table tops are totally grammable). Get the fruit and yogurt granola...it’s homemade granola. Yeah.
2.) Sniff your way over to the blooms at The Bud Stop. It’s one of our founder, Jordan’s, favorite places to grab a bouquet for the office, and it’s all local goods! They even have treats for your party pups if they’re in tow.
3.) From here head over to Wasteland on Haight and stroll through their super funky, rocker-esque vintage clothes. Maybe you’re not a rocker chick, but it’s at least fun to look and be inspired by all the different types of clothing they have. Make sure to peep the craziness at Piedmont Boutique down the street too (you can’t miss it - their storefront has a pair of oversize, fishnetted legs sticking out the window!). Bonus points: The people watching is amazing in the Haight. Hello, hippies.
4.) Grab lunch at one of our favorite greek places in the city, Souvla, in Hayes Valley from here. Not much of a greek fan? No worries! They have different types of options and the decor is as great as the food. We also should probably mention Hayes Valley is adorable and should totally be on your shopping list. Another one of our favorite bites on this side of town? Straw! Their carnival themed, comfort food serving restaurant is famous for their donut burger. Oh yeah, you heard us right. It’s a must-try.
5.) If you happen to find yourself in Nob Hill area around lunch instead, be sure to make a stop at Cheese Plus for a sandwich and the perfect cup of coffee. Soak up the sun (...or fog, just keepin’ it real) in their outdoor seating. Did we mention this place is darling? Cause it totally is.
6.) Being active should probably be on your SF to-do list at some point, so we’ve chosen Lands End as our favorite digs to crawl up in the city. You can explore the Sutro Baths ruins and even peep a perfect view of the Golden Gate Bridge! Also a preferred Party Girl adventure spot? The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina! These gorgeous grounds are home to some serious beauty. Weekends get busy here, but it’s worth the stop!
7.) Once you’ve checked out all that Hayes Valley has to offer we recommend heading on over for a break in Dolores Park and munching on a sweet treat from Tartine Bakery. You won’t regret it. Like...ever. And did we mention dream about it?
8.) For a quick caffeine boost head over to Pinhole Coffee (you might have spotted them on our Insta - we LOVE their rainbow wall!). Our other fave coffee spot? The uber hip Wrecking Ball coffee on Union Street. Not only is their coffee ah-mazing, but their pineapple wallpaper is so cute it has its own hashtag (#pineappleselfie)!
9.) We’re big lovers of Mexican food so we’d definitely recommend hitting up El Techo Lolinda in The Mission neighborhood. There’s usually a little bit of a wait to get on this rooftop in the city and sip one of their epic margaritas, but it’s worth it, trust us!
10.) If you’re still feelin’ like you want a little night cap head on over to Loló to sip on THE most gor-gous drinks there ever were. Tasty too, this place is ultra fun and cute. Come here for dinner or brunch to if you can’t get enough like us.
11.) Maybe you’re craving something sweet to end your night with instead. If this is the case, head over to CREAM and grab an ice cream taco, or one of their famous ice cream sandwiches! Their name doesn’t stand for “Cookies Rule Everything Around Me” for nothing here, Party Girls.
12.) Is froyo more your style? Hop over to Loving Cup on Polk Street. We’re in PG Parfait bliss every time we visit, Bebs.
Have a little extra time on your SF trip? Mosey over the Golden Gate to Sausalito! It’s seriously the cutest little town, complete with rows of colorful houseboats (um, party on a boat? yes!). We recommend biking around downtown and then ending your day with a burger at Barrel House Tavern.. yum!
