Local Lifestyle

Most Cow Hollow and Marina residents are young professionals and entrepreneurs who moved to the city to work in Silicon Valley or the numerous other business centers in the region. Locals live by a work hard, play hard ethic that means the neighborhoods can get relatively quiet during the workday and buzz back to life as everyone descends on the lively entertainment and dining venues along Marina Boulevard and Fillmore Street.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Both Cow Hollow and Marina are thriving centers of entertainment and dining, with Union and Chestnut Streets being the most densely populated by trendy eateries and chic boutiques. One staple of the local dining scene is Mamanoko, a classy Japanese eatery serving a variety of sushi and authentic small plates alongside an extensive list of sake and spirits. The venue also serves as a social hub for the young, cosmopolitan population who call the neighborhood home. 
Another equally stylish restaurant, A16, is known for its traditional Neapolitan pizza, pasta cooked using Southern Italian flavors, and its award-winning wine list. For a leisurely lunch or dinner with friends, A16 offers a cozy, intimate setting that perfectly suits its familiar, comforting menu. Alternatively, a visit to Delarosa provides a completely different pizza-centric experience, with Roman pizzas and antipasti served in an airy, outdoor communal dining space that’s perfect for large gatherings or socializing with your neighbors. 
For a strong, delicious morning coffee or a quick meet-up with friends, Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters is centrally located in Cow Hollow and a great place to unwind over a steaming espresso.
