I'm currently living in East-Bay, but after taking trips into the city I truly feel I am short-changing myself. I moved recently from Seattle with no knowledge of the Bay Area, and although I enjoy my current city I don't think feel content with what it has to offer most of the time. I have considered Pacific Heights, the Marina, etc... but I would love some local input.


PS - I work from home so walkability is a nonissue.

Hey there -- it really depends on what you're into. If you're into a more laid back, bohemian feel, I definitely recommend the Lower Haight or Potrero Hill. If you like something a little more upscale, Pac Heights and the Marina make sense.

Also, in the interest of shameless self-promotion, I just launched an app that allows you to figure out which neighborhoods are most like your favorite Seattle neighborhoods. It works for both Oakland and SF. You can check it out on your phone at http://m.zofari.com. If you have any feedback, we'd love to to hear it.

Good luck!

I think South Beach/SoMa is a great neighborhood that has a lot of amenities and would fit your criteria.
You really need to visit and get a feel for yourself to see if its a good fit.

Here is a link to the various neighborhoods:

Marina or Cow Hollow are two good bets. Lots of restaurants and bars and single people. You will also have access to the bars and restaurants of Fillmore and Polk Streets, so those are hard to beat. Pac Hts is okay, too - I live there - but you'll have to walk up and down steep hills to get to the marina/cow hollow places from there.

The other area you may want to consider is South Beach. Lots of young professionals and plenty of bars and restaurants there as well. I would spend some time in both and see what feels right to you.
