Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Recently named San Francisco's "Artsiest Neighborhood" by NY Magazine, the Dogpatch district is a mixed industrial and residential patch of city between Portrero Hill and the Bay where you'll also find our Small Works fair.

Nearby 22nd Street and the 3rd St corridor boasts a cluster of amazing artisan manufacturers, wine bars, brew pubs and fantastic restaurants. We put together a sampling of our favorite Dogpatch spots to complement your stARTup Small Works visit. Take a look, grab your Small Works tickets, and get ready for a San Francisco weekend you won't forget!
