SoMa is home to many of the city's tech companies (including Hipmunk), particularly around tiny South Park—but the area isn't all business. By day, SoMa's arts district offers high culture at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Contemporary Jewish Museum. But SoMa also offers night entertainment: Giants baseball, drag venues, dance clubs, and live music at bars around 11th St. Day and night, be aware in sketchy areas, particularly between the blocks bounded by 5th and 10th Streets.
