Fillmore Street


Fillmore Street is part of the Fillmore District of San Francisco, California. This district can be referred to as The Fillmore, The Fill, The Moe, or Fillmoe. It is a popular neighborhood totaling .463 square miles of the city. The boundaries of the district are not very defined; however, most consider it to be Fillmore Street to Van Ness Avenue, Geary Boulevard and Grove Street.

Fillmore Street was named for Millard Fillmore, an early American President. The Lower Haight Neighborhood begins Fillmore Street and it travels up to Fillmore District and Pacific Heights, ending at Marina District. Fillmore Street is well known for its diversity with family oriented shops, retail and chain stores, jazz clubs, ethnic restaurants, and clubs. There are some plaques along the street to remember old clubs and stores that no longer exist due to redevelopment.

One important example of history on Fillmore Street is Jumbo's Bop City. This is a nightclub that still sees notable jazz musicians. However, it was mostly popular in the 40s and 50s. The club moved to a different location. The original building now houses the Afrocentric book store called Marcus Bookstore. The Fillmore Auditorium can also be found in this district.
