As we move towards full reopening, perhaps as soon as June 15, most of the retail shops of our neighborhood are partially or fully open. We can’t keep up with them all, so do not be surprised if the listings below are overly pessimistic. (If you find errors, or know of changes, please notify email@example.com.)
Note that most businesses follow City / State guidelines and require a mask indoors. If you prefer not to wear a mask on the street, fine; just keep one handy for use when you pop inside!
Most bars, alas, and many restaurants, find that operating at the current limit of 25% of capacity is unworkable for them. We expect more will open when the local guidelines allow 50% or 100% capacity.
In addition to this page, you may also wish to consult the SOMA West Community Benefit District‘s comprehensive list of dining options in the entire SOMA West area, here.
Please do patronize these businesses as often as possible, and help our neighborhood to survive and fully recover. Have a great “Vaccine Spring” and a sizzling summer!
