For a completely unique San Francisco experience, visit the vintage store Viracocha in Mission. Your overall experience here, which will include browsing through antique collectibles – furniture, jewelry, photographs, and old newspapers to name a few – will also be defined by what else happens to be going on in the store that day.

Viracocha is a store, and in addition to the items that have been collected or re-purposed, you might find the new work of an artist who has a display there. But, Viracocha isĀ also a community gathering and performance space, meaning that you could also happen upon a performance of some kind, whether it be music, poetry or comedy.

Viracocha is so underground that in order to view a calendar of events online, you have to acquire an access code first (in person). Viracocha is open Wednesday through Sunday, daytime only.
