Meet our neighbors at The Yard
The Yard: San Francisco’s Pop-Up Village
The Yard at Mission Rock is a pop-up village constructed from repurposed shipping containers that house local food and drink establishments, pop-up shops, public open space, cultural programming and events, open 7 days per week, year round. Â Locals and visitors alike love the casual and friendly environment that The YardÂ has to offer.
â€˜cool and fun outdoor atmosphere where you can grab coffee from Peet’s, beer, snacks and even do little shopping. I like the view of AT&T park which is less than a block away. The view of the water is great where you can see boat passâ€™ â€“ Nuno V., Yelp
Less than a quarter mile from One Mission Bay, this unique neighborhood gathering spot offers neighbors the opportunity to experience the future Mission Rock neighborhood on a smaller scale. Nestled between the maturing South Beach neighborhood and the emerging Mission Bay neighborhood, the Mission Rock district will be an exciting, new, common ground for San Franciscans. The Yard describes Mission Bay with theseÂ 3 simple words: Fun. Outdoor. Relaxation.
So, where to begin? Â The Yard recommends ordering the â€˜newest experimental brew from the Anchor Beer Garden, usually first available exclusively at The Yard location! Your best bet of coming across one of these is on a â€œFirkin Friday,â€ on select Fridays throughout the year.â€™ Â The Yard is also perfect suited for anÂ all-inclusive game day experience; Â be sure to check out the pre-game packages at The Yard and plan your dayÂ in the heart of the action atop the Giant Steps and Championsâ€™ Deck at The Yard at Mission Rock!
We asked The Yard to share one ofÂ their favorite events with us and we loved hearing about it: â€˜When costars Ryan Reynolds and TJ Miller visited The Yard to promote their film Deadpool, and handed out free Chimichangas to our guests from inside Senor Sisigâ€™s food truck!â€™
Tenants at The Yard showcase emerging local culture, culinary trends, and new ways to come together through creating, eating, and learning. Â TheÂ YardÂ also hostsÂ events for large, festive gatherings. Â Here is a short list of two events they have later this month.
