Refers to the area that is south of Market Street (hence, "soma") in San Francisco, CA. Once strictly a gritty industrial neighborhood, the area has maintained the grit while developing into a thriving nightclub and residential/work-live loft area. Was also the location of many failed dot-com companies and is still home to a number of gay bars.
