San Francisco is a special place for photography. Luminaries such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham have called it home. Art students from around the world come here to attend prestigious schools like the San Francisco Art Institute, California College of the Arts, and the Academy of Art University. Leica Store San Francisco is nestled in the heart of the city, and was conceived to be a destination for the diverse Bay Area community of Leica photographers. Whether purchasing a brand new T Digital Camera, or bringing in a beloved M3 for service, Leica Store San Francisco is a destination for all those who love photography.
The store is in a uniquely central location and is surrounded by Chinatown, the Financial District, and Union Square.
Le Central is a storied French restaurant just off Union Square, and right next door to Leica Store San Francisco. Frequented by the elite old-guard of San Francisco, on any given day you can catch a glimpse of well-heeled socialites and politicians eating their famous cassoulet or sipping on a glass of Sancerre at the bar.
