The Hayes Valley is a pretty neighborhood with many gay residents and friendly businesses. You'll find good restaurants and shopping, plus several nearby alleys for privacy; have a walk up and down Octavia street. It's a real mix of guys here, mainly local residents, so just take a wander along Hayes Street from behind Davies Symphony Hall along the three blocks towards Gough and see if anyone catches your eye. Popular times are the afternoon and evenings, especially with the after work crowd.
