About urban picnic


In partnership with Hotel Whitcomb, the teams behind SoMa StrEat Food Park, SPARK Social SF, Parklab Gardens, and Gasser Garden, have launched a new outdoor food truck square in Civic Center. Urban Picnic is a 6,000 sq. ft. food truck square open Monday-Friday for lunch from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and located at 1231 Market Street on 8th and Stevenson St.

Urban Picnic hosts a rotating line-up of food trucks every weekday, bringing a taste of SF’s delectably diverse food scene into the heart of Downtown. Monarch SF hosts an artisan pop-up bar, pouring beer, wine, and cocktails every Wednesday-Friday during lunch. 


Once San Francisco’s lively City Hall, the elegant Hotel Whitcomb offers a unique mix of timeless hospitality and urban convenience. The ornate high-ceilinged lobby exhibits marble columns, crystal chandeliers and Tiffany stained glass. Amenities include an Asian fusion restaurant, a coffee shop and a wine bar, as well an Internet cafe, meeting spaces and an exercise room.

Hotel Whitcomb is located at 1231 Market Street, and is a 2-minute walk from the Asian Art Museum, a 5-minute walk from both the Civic Center and a BART rail station, and is served by a streetcar that runs along Market Street.
