I know it gets a bad rap, and yes there are plenty of drugged-out people in half of the district, but the TL still has some of the best bar and food places in the city. The crowds are usually unpretentious and the values are great.
The area between Polk, Taylor, O’Farrell and Post is perhaps my favorite. I suppose most locals would now call half of this the Tendernob or Lower Nob Hill, but I don’t care to make that granular distinction in this review. Here, you’ll find a number of fun places to hang at night along with great food options. Located in the geographic center of the city, it’s fairly easy to get to, as it’s located only a few blocks from Union Square.
If you’re new to the city, you may want to stay off the streets south of O’Farrell (at least at night) as they tend to get a bit sketchy.
