Our 5 Favorite Spots to ‘Gram in SoMa
It seems as though every corner you turn in SoMa, there’s yet another beautiful sight to capture. And while The Harrison resides amongst one of the most Instagrammable neighborhoods in the city, we’ve vetted the locations and compiled a list of our favorite spots to snap spectacular photos.
The Bay Bridge
We believe one of the most Instagram-worthy sites in SoMa is, of course, the Bay Bridge. Whether you’re beneath it at sunrise while taking a stroll with your pup through Rincon Park or above it at sunset in the comfort of your own abode at The Harrison, each moment of daylight is sure to hit the Bay Bridge just right.
Brannan Street Mural
Located on the exterior of an otherwise uninteresting office building at 466 Brannan Street in SoMa is a remarkable painting by San Francisco-based muralist HUEMAN. The ethereal image is that of a fragmented woman with bright pops of color, sharp lines and an overall eerie yet beautiful vibe—perfect for an artistic Instagram or selfie.
Break from the usual Instagram feed of San Francisco’s most frequented sites with a few images from San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art. Located just moments from The Harrison, the MoMa features an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art against stunning architecture. If only every Instagram had this type of backdrop.

“I don’t think what you see or feel in the world when you open your eyes for the first time ever leaves you. . . . Historical memory is hardly ever erased.” -Frank Bowling. . This work is named for the artist’s oldest son, Benjamin, whose likeness emerges from two photographs collaged onto the canvas, barely visible under thick layers of yellow paint.

The brand new Salesforce Park has quickly become one of the most sought-after spots in San Francisco. Complete with a 1,000-foot fountain, towering palm trees, multiple gardens with 200+ different species and grassy areas to gather, Salesforce Park has proven to be pure Instagram gold.
Last but certainly not least, The Harrison is, in fact, one of the most Instagrammable sites on this side of town. Masterfully designed by Ken Fulk, both the Grand Salon and Uncle Harry’s are replete with luxurious details, curated artwork and—above all—SoMa’s most awe-inspiring Bay Bridge views. Take a seat and let each space do the work for you.
