Alexander's is centrally located in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Walking to our store is always a great option. We are a short walk from Union Square and the Moscone Convention Center (3 to 4 blocks) and just a half block off Market Street on Second Street. We are about a ten minute walk from the Embarcardaro waterfront, Chinatown, North Beach or Oracle ballpark, the home of the San Francisco Giants.

If you are not in the immediate area, we'd recommend using public transit. We are located on 2nd Street between Market and Mission Streets. The Montgomery underground Station for BART and the Muni light rail is just a half block away. Many Muni buses and the F streetcar travel along Market Street.

If you are driving there is metered street parking but it is limited to some on 2nd Street, Mission Street, and Howard Street.  ** Please check carefully for time-of-day tow away zones before parking and leaving your car! **  The closest hourly parking is available on Stevenson Street, but is very expensive. There are a two city-owned hourly garages in the area which are a bit less expensive: one on 3rd and Howard, and the other on 5th and Mission.
