Our nightlife and entertainment industry is a significant part of our cultural and economic lifeblood. San Francisco has a long history of active nightlife that has contributed to our reputation as a vibrant place to live and a unique place to visit. A study by the City Economist assessed the economic impact of the nighttime economy and determined that the industry contributes $4.2 billion annually to San Francisco's economy, employs over 50,000 people in largely middle class jobs, and generates about $50 million in city tax revenue.
