The Tendernob (or TenderNob) is an area in San Francisco, California between Nob Hill area to the north and the Tenderloin to the south. The name is a portmanteau of Tenderloin and Nob Hill, and is often used by realtors for marketing purposes.

The term is often used in local slang as a euphemism for the Upper Tenderloin and Lower Nob Hill areas. For instance, the San Francisco Chronicle includes the Tendernob as part of Nob Hill,[citation needed] but the Michelin Guide does not differentiate between Nob Hill and the Tenderloin .[citation needed]

Academy of Art University owns and uses several buildings in this area for both housing and educational purposes.[1]
