During WWII Fillmore was considered the "Harlem of the West," where African American culture thrived. It's still got blues bars, barbecue joints, and live jazz at Yoshi's. Another highlight is Fillmore Auditorium, home to psychedelic rock acts of the 1960s and still a major music venue. Head to the bar upstairs, where trippy 1960s concert posters cover the walls.
