The Best Springtime Date Ideas Around SoMa

It’s springtime, friends! As sure as the cold winds blow off the bay each winter, love is in the air every spring in The City. The clouds part, the weather warms and dating apps are abuzz with busy bees in search of nectar-laden flowers—it’s all just part of the changing seasons up here in Northern California.

But where to take your lovely lady or bold new beau once you’ve found him/her? Glad you asked because here are the best springtime dates around SoMa!


What better place to set a date than beneath the iconic clock tower atop the Ferry Building? The beautiful building now serves as an incubator for artisan food growers and producers. California’s fertile soil and creative craftsmen and women make for one of the coolest farmers’ markets in the western hemisphere.

The artisan food community is a generous bunch. Take your sweetheart down the aisles and feast on free samples. Chunks of cheese, sips of wine and crunchy mouthfuls of caramel popcorn await! Throw in some stunning views of the bay and the romance will take care of itself.


The weather isn’t the only thing that perks up when the seasons change. You can feel the energy in the air in the spring, so why fight it? Red Hots Burlesque will provide a little heat to go with the warming temperatures.

The Yelp community agrees Red Hots makes a great date. Lidsey H. writes, “My girlfriend and I enjoyed the show very much… Very nice people and very inspiring! I’m so glad we went.”


Fire pits and food trucks. ‘Nuff said. Spark Social SF is an excellent outing as the weather warms. San Francisco’s best block party offers live music and marshmallow roasts. And you can sweep her off her feet on the cheap, fellas.

Spark Social rotates food trucks every day, so it’s never the same experience twice. The urban playspace gets high marks from yelpsters: “They even transformed a double-decker bus into a seating area so you can sit up top and enjoy the view of Mission Bay.”

There’s more than pollen and precipitation in the air when San Francisco goes spring. Viva sweet love, SoMa! Enjoy these great date spots South of Market.
