The historical and wealthy community of South Park is considered part of Golden Hill. That community dates back to 1870. Golden Hill is also becoming known as an area for artists, musicians and other artisans that have been priced out of other areas of the city. Several recording studios are located in Golden Hill including Black Box Recording Studios, The Habitat Recording Studios, and artist hangouts such as the Influx Cafe, Turf Supper Club, Krakatoa & Luigi's Pizza.
Golden Hill is also host to two outdoor concerts a year, The Golden Hill Block Party and Kate Sessions Fest. The Golden Hill Block Party is annually held on the last Saturday before Halloween. In 2006, the Kate Sessions Fest made its debut in Golden Hill Park. Both outdoor concerts are free, all-ages events, organized by local artists and musicians, and feature local bands.
Golden Hill is an established area of tree-lined streets, safe walking distance from some of the cultural sites of San Diego, and a central location to downtown San Diego, making it one of the new, hip places to live in San Diego.
