“Fantastic Improv Comedy”
Won best theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008. They do really unique improvised theater productions, like improvised musicals and improvised Shakespeare shows, and have been a San Francisco staple since 2003.

We usually go to BATS Improv, but we went to see their Foglandia show since we love Portlandia. It was so good that we went back to see another show. Of course it was completely different because it's real improv. Brilliant wit, dramatic depth and...More

We saw Foglandia last night - it was amazing! Who are these actors with such creative and nimble brains??? Not only do they make the story up as they go along, they create scene appropriate songs too. If I didn't know better, I would say...More

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army

containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
