Dogpatch - Potrero Hill

The Dogpatch - Potrero Hill neighborhood is as historic as it is vibrant. Populated in the late 1800s by industrial workers and their families, the Dogpatch was one of the few areas in San Francisco to survive the 1906 earthquake and fire. In 2002, the Dogpatch became an officially designated historic district of the city of San Francisco.

The District

The Dogpatch is a hip can-do neighborhood that rose from the ruins of the old industrial waterfront. Steadily gaining a rise in popularity as an up and coming neighborhood, the Dogpatch is currently going through a positive transformation and is home to trendy converted dockside warehouses and factories that have been developed into live-in artist studios and hip shared spaces. Dogpatch is an enticing culinary destination, and foodies are flooding to its slow food restaurant scene. Better known for its epicurean offerings than its late-night culture, the Dogpatch has plenty of accessible transit options to take you and your guests anywhere in SF. Adjacent to the waterfront, the Dogpatch is squared off by Potrero Hill to the east, Mariposa Street to the north, I-280 to the west, and Cesar Chavez to the south.

For decades, Potrero Hill remained one of the best-kept secrets in San Francisco. Shipyards and working docks on one side of the hill, and bakeries, breweries, and warehouses on the other gave a decidedly blue-collar appearance to this quiet neighborhood. As South of Market was colonized by the dot-com explosion, the former warehouses and factories were converted to office space and live/work lofts. San Francisco high-rises sprang up along the 3rd Street corridor, and Potrero Hill became a happening neighborhood.

The Neighbors

The Dogpatch homes and commercial real estate have quite a history. Many of the neighborhood’s former factories, warehouses, shipyards, and mills have become live/work lofts, high-tech professional workspaces, and trendy restaurants. Because of this, you will find a lot of activity during the work week, but once the weekend comes around it is a quiet and sunny place with people who are authentic, creative, innovative, artistic, and neighborly.

The Lifestyle

In the Dogpatch foodies enjoy innovative and fresh foods from a variety of local restaurants, including Just for You Cafe, The Ramp, Yield Wine Bar, and Mission Rock Resort. American cuisine restaurant Serpentine is located in what was once a tin-can factory’s boiler room. Residents who prefer to cook at home can stop by Whole Foods Market after work. On sunny days, locals gather at Esprit Park for a picnic while their dogs play.

Nearby, Potrero Hill’s 18th Street corridor features more trendy bars, cafes, and restaurants. Blooms Saloon has dramatic views of downtown San Francisco, while Mission Hill Saloon was selected as one of the best dive bars in the country.
