soma, san francisco


In all of San Francisco, SOMA is definitely where I've spent most of my time, considering I'm there 40+ hours a week for work. SOMA is the hub of all the tech companies in San Francisco, so there's a lot of spots that have popped up in the last 5-10 years to make it a happening place, mostly during the weekdays (it's a bit more quiet on the weekends!) Below is my list of the top 10 things to do in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood - hope you enjoy!

1. Visit SPiN

A ping pong bar filled with hipsters and developers that has a DJ most nights -- the perfect spot to grab a drink after work or go for your next team outing! It's worthwhile to note that you get buckets of ping pong balls refilled and they use these mop-like gadgets to sweep everything up and refill your bucket, meaning you don't have to shag your own balls!!! The tables aren't cheap and you should reserve them in advance, but it's well worth the experience. Nothing else says Silicon Valley quite like this bar.
