Presidio Neighborhood in Downtown Santa Barbara

Black Sheep is not a part of the Presidio Neighborhood!

The Presidio Neighborhood is a vibrant few blocks in the heart of Santa Barbara, centered around the historical site of the last of the Spanish fortresses, or presidios, to be built in California. Encompassing what was also once the city’s Chinatown and Japantown, the neighborhood is now home to a variety of locally owned, intriguing shops, wine tasting rooms, world class restaurants, casual eateries, bars, coffee houses, and cultural treasures. Walking the neighborhood rewards the visitor with discoveries of hidden walkways, courtyards, and amazing architectural details set against the backdrop of the American Riviera and the Santa Ynez mountains.
