Though its most recognizable landmarks are the famous "Painted Ladies" Victorian houses off Alamo Square, the Western Addition is full of other must-dos and must-sees, including the jazzy Fillmore District and Japantown, the largest and oldest neighborhood of its kind in the U.S.
The Fillmore District boasts a vibrant African American community and loads of hot music venues. East meets West at the elegant Yoshi's, where you can savor top-notch sushi while watching a jazz set. Catch blues and funk at John Lee Hooker's club the Boom Boom Room and witness contemporary stars play on the stage where rock gods once ruled at the renowned Fillmore, where the walls are lined with posters of legendary concerts past.
Japantown's unique shops, sushi restaurants, noodle houses, and karaoke bars are fun, but those in need of some peace and quiet will love the soothing setting of the Kabuki Springs & Spa. Heading north on Fillmore Street takes you to Lower Pacific Heights' strip of upscale boutiques and eateries, most notably Dosa, Plumpjack Café, and SPQR.
