Discover Castro

The neon-lit Castro Theater is a historic anchor for this happy and humorous hood, where storefront names are as cheeky as they are descriptive, and the sun always seems to be shining. Bustling bars with strong libations line Castro street, and there are a host of delicious options if you’re in the mood for new-American, Californian, or Italian fare. Nighttime is definitely party time, with flair at the forefront, and weekend brunch often serves as a decadent continuation of those festivities.
