HAIGHT ASHBURY
THE BIRTHPLACE OF HIPPIE CULTURE
Welcome to Haight Ashbury, San Francisco.
Also called The Haight or The Upper Height, and sometimes even Hashbury, this former home of hippies and American counter-culture is now an affluent neighborhood where colorful Victorian houses are occupied by the wealthy. High-end boutiques, chic restaurants and hip coffee spots now line the streets, but the past of peace, love and rock n'roll has left a prominent trail. During the Haight Ashbury Flower Power Walking Tour, you get to stroll through the history of it all, from music to art, fashion and architecture. Meander down the same streets where icons like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dear, Joni Mitchell once made their marks in the most colorful era of the 20th century. Today, Haight Ashbury is an eclectic neighborhood with a diverse population; neo-punks, club kids, fashionistas and yuppies are all equally at home here. The Upper Haight is known for being the area of luxury and flair, while the Lower Haight expresses a grittier feel. The latter is also the main draw amongst DJ's and ravers, and offers a plethora of dance-music record shops and clubs. Weekends can get crowded with tourists and others, especially during brunch and club hours, but otherwise the neighborhood is pretty relaxed and chill. Popular spots to dine and socialize include the Chilli Cha Cha, a Thai caf that specializes in noodle and other Thai soups, and Horseshoe Coffee House, which was the first Internet caf in the U.S. For a festive dining experience, stop by Kan Zaman and get a true middle-eastern experience while the belly dancers swirl in front of ogling onlookers. A great attraction that is not to be missed is The Red Victorian hotel. This Bed and Breakfast and community space was constructed in 1904, and was originally named the Jefferson Hotel. Back then, it was rumored to be a brothel but don't worry, that's not the case anymore!
