FILLMORE DISTRICT
THE JAZZ DISTRICT
Welcome to the Fillmore District in San Francisco.
Also nicknamed The Fillmore, The Moe, or Fillmoe, it is a subset of the Western addition neighborhood of the city. The Fillmore was created in the 1880's to provide new space for the city to grow when overcrowding became an issue. After the big earthquake in 1906, Fillmore Street luckily escaped much of the damage, and became a temporary commercial center while downtown San Francisco was rebuilt. During the 1940s and 1950s, The Fillmore was a national center for Jazz, and became known as the Harlem of the West. Legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday once flocked to the area, and during the 1990s and early 2000s, the strip was revived with a new Jazz District featuring upscale Jazz-themed restaurants, retail stores and fancy residential projects. The music culture is so important in the neighborhood that aside from a yearly Jazz Festival, there is a Jazz Heritage Center where the San Francisco branch of Yoshi's jazz club was once housed. Take a stroll up Fillmore Street and you'll see a reflection of each part of the neighborhood. The spicy intersection of Lower Haight continues upward to the more residential area of Hayes Valley and Alamo Square. By Geary Boulevard, the blues and jazz days are still dense in the air as you imagine the spirits of long gone musicians. Grazing Japan Town at Post Street, it then blooms into a commercial thicket through Pacific Heights. Here, quaint shops blend with an array of dining spots, pubs and commercial stores. Climbing up toward the bay, Fillmore ends its journey with Cow Hollow and makes a dazzling finale as it hits the blue by the marina.
