It can't be a:

Restaurant
Dispensary

Black out those windows and remove any signage. Tear out the inside until nothing but a desk remains in the center of the room--this is where you will sit.
At the door have a sign that says: Admittance $10. Make it one of those automated money doors. People pay to come in out of curiosity only to see you sitting there. Have a nameplate on your desk that says: Conversation: $15. Etc, etc.
Get social media hype, profit.
Idiots in California will gobble this shit up, I guarantee it.

For realsies this time, are there any bookstores in the area? The property doesn't look quite big enough, but if you can swallow your pride you could try ro do something like the bookstore in Portlandia. Host a bunch of empowered woman events and maybe give discounts to trans people. One thing I'm slowly learning is pandering to idiots is a payday. Especially feminists/tumblrites. Plus its almosy guaranteed free advertisement from social media/news sources.

from the google street view i see the place is SURROUNDED with cloth store ,, and i counted 3 bars and 1 hippy shop

i was gonna say ice cream shop but there is ben and jerry right around the corner and you would be competing against them my suggestion is
Internet cafe why ? because people shopping need a place to leave the kids at , they wont leave them in an icecream shop or a bar so an internet cafe would be great !

P.S: the streat is heavily compatitve OP so i think the rent gonna be sky high if you aren't already hooked getting another place for a cheaper rent gonna be great

Holy fuck OP ,,, Your Paying 78k a year for just the fucking space ? change that place,, a small startup owner like you making the first 100k a year is tough enough but giving 78% of that to the owner Plus taxes ?

ask others what rent they are paying and how they manage and i bet you they paying half what are you paying

I really hope you didn't sign the contract yet because paying them that price for the 1 floor shop is retarded

Open a Muslim-style credit union or bank, and advertise it as this.

Banks in Muslim countries don't charge interest (if they do then they get their heads cut off), so instead by giving a loan to a company, they buy ownership in it. Applying for a loan would be like a scenario from the TV show shark tank. Let local Californian rapefugee-loving retards deposit their bux, and you have your capital.

Some time later you will find yourself the owner of a company that has ownership in all the local small businesses. Who knows, you may even do a real service by improving the cash flow of your local community.

Seriously dude: Wine bar.

Serve tapas (need no kitchen, just pre-prepared plates in a fridge and olives)

Serve a selection of craft ales and wines. I do this in the UK and the fucking women and nu-males love this shit. You can charge almost what you want if you bullshit about the product enough.

nigga we in a board game rennaisance. get games like settlers, ticket to ride, carcassonne, and then for the non plebs get cosmic encounter, Twilight imperium, Terra mystica and so on. sure you can sell magic the gathering as that would help you get over the initial hump. but look into it. /tg/ board is actually decently populated for good reason.

If you want hipsters to FLOW in, start one of these:
A place were you first get a quick class on how to use a film (non-digital) camera, then you get a good quality black and white film camera to go and take pictures, then when you get back you are shown how to develop, and then they develop... (I guess do that first step for them - the one were you are in 100% darkness)
Sell it as a whole package

Start a Trump store. Right in the middle of fucking San Francisco. MAGA hats and combover wigs and giant American flags. Call the store The Wall and print, "If You Build It, They Will Stop Coming!" on all your stationary. Take out a massive insurance policy and twiddle your thumbs till you inevitably make the news and angry homos burn your store to the ground. Collect the insurance and retire a rich man

The only way OP is going to jump out of the red from 6500k rent per month is by doing something super illegal.

Like you might as well form the League of Evil and start robbing banks or planning global conquest. It's the only way to turn a profit.

God damn I wish I was that rentor

Kinda a make your own meal restaurant. The kinda place where people can come in, make a bunch of meals for each day of the week. You could also offer cooking classes to help people get started, and also offer your own pre-made meals for those who utterly fail and give up but want to eat healthy home made food. But OP said no restaurants ..... Is it technically a restaurant if they're not eating in?

hairygrape

has been the best idea so far. A low key craft ale/wine place would do alright there.

My only concern would be serving space vs. cost of a Beer and Wine license there - you don't have to go full-out with a liquor license (which are usually more expensive in CA if you're serving a full hard-liquor assortment), but you really should allot at least a 150-200 square feet to serving space for a tapas menu. If you can't get 2,500-3,000 square feet for customers, I don't think you can break even with that business model.

We need more info here - lease info, Price/sqft, length of lease etc.

section the property off into small partitions, get some cheap ikea mattresses and charge people by the hour to nap.

By the hour retail bedrooms and a coffee shop with free wifi in the back. People can rent a room and drink coffee, do some work. You can also airbnb the beds at night and have a makeshift hostel.

You'll need to test out prices, but $20-25 to nap in between commutes to and from the city might not be a terrible business.

You can also reserve beds online.

Japanese capsules cost $35 for the night. See what motels are charging in the area and just undercut them.

I'm full of fucking amazing ideas, I can just never find the time or capital to make them all happen.

I also thing a medical marijuana place could work around that area. Vices and services are a guaranteed sell, even in times of depression (which I think we might be headed toward).

Do wine tapas and medicinal cannabis. Call it of wine and green roses. Play whatever nu males and feminist's listen to now days and make some bank. Tapas is good because you can charge through the roof for cheap ingredients.

Hands down dispensary, you get a non profit status, cash based business, plus a dispensary o. The fucking haight.......... cash. Straight cash user.

I own an industrial design company in the east bay and work with people on all sides.of that industry from signs and store displays to packaging and prototypes. If you mix the heady glass/sacred geometry culture with medicinal cannabis you will rake in money. If you want to be put in contact with suppliers, store designers and promoters let me know.
