Place Pigalle

Place Pigalle

This dive gives those in Hayes Valley who'd rather not drop rent on a bar tab a place to go. Locals love the pool table and the foosball table, and after looking around at the well-worn couches, one may wonder, "Wait, am I in a frat house?"
The Final Final

The Final Final

Its walls covered by 49ers and Giants memorabilia, the Final Final is a solid place to kick back and watch sports in the Marina, with a crowd of regulars, sports enthusiasts, and whoever else shows up to enjoy the pool table, dartboard, and free popcorn.


With nightly DJs playing good ol' rock 'n' roll, Delirium's small, black-walled back room is one of the city's coolest places when the DJs are firing on all cylinders. And with a motto like "service for the sick," we can dig it.

  • DaDa


    86 2nd St. San Francisco, CA 94105-3439

  • DaDa S.F. Gallery & Bar

    DaDa S.F. Gallery & Bar

    86 Second St. San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-357-1367 Located two blocks South of Market but appearing more like a Mission dive with its red walls and gaudy light fixtures, DaDa S.F. bills itself as an art gallery and bar. A massive assemblage sculpture of Icarus' mythological descent hangs on one wall, gothic metal sculptures spy from high corners, and modern Cubist paintings span the longest wall, keeping DaDa S.F. true to its claim. But the crowd here isn't art-scene chic: you're more likely to find the cooler of the corporate bunch looking to slug as many Mai Tais or pomegranate Mojitos as the happy hour will allow. And a generous happy hour it is, pouring heavy from 4-9 p.m. and serving $6 cocktails in pint glasses. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Dalva


    3121 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-252-7740 One long hallway of a bar, the low-lit Dalva boasts great sangria and DJs spinning various kinds of hip, cool music. If the tunes get too loud for conversation (which they often do), head to the not-so-secret back room (its "Hideout" status is even mentioned on the sign outside).

  • Danny Coyle

    Danny Coyle's

    668 Haight San Francisco, CA 94117
    415-558-8375 A clean and spacious pub without the typical sports bar feeling, the white walls, pillar candles, and warm lighting give Danny Coyle's a craftsman feel, as if Restoration Hardware had something to do with the styling. They don't serve food, but this pub serves more higher-end brews and spirits than most traditional sports bars, boasting a full bar and Guinness, Stella Artois, and Blue Moon on tap, as well as Chimay and Duvel bottles. There are more than four TVs positioned throughout the bar, broadcasting European football (the place attracts lots of soccer lovers) or basketball (NBA or college) games, and during the fall, NFL games. However, Niners and Raiders fans beware: Danny Coyle's often screens football games from other markets, so Niners games are relegated to the back TV and the Raiders are somewhat of an afterthought. Danny Coyle's is a designated "Chargers Bar" - as in the San Diego Chargers - so when the Bolts score a touchdown, the bartender even belts the San Diego Super Chargers theme over the sound system. When it's not game night, they host Brainstormer, the trivia night emceed by Irishman Liam McAtasney. And there's a DJ on weekend nights, when the dance floor is used for booty shakin'.

  • Dark Horse Inn

    942 Geneva Ave. San Francisco, CA 94112

  • Dear Mom

    Dear Mom

    2700 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-625-3362 The Mission District's trendier half extends itself eastward at Dear Mom, a newly hip hangout in the (now totally unrecognizable) old El Rincon location. There's a pool table and Pabst for those who dutifully maintain their downscale-twentysomething hipster profile, but it's the exposed wood and bare bulbs that give away the bar's fancier adult airs. Dear Mom, can we borrow some money? Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Delirium Cocktails

    Delirium Cocktails

    3139 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103

    A change of name and management has turned this grubby Mission District haunt into a slightly less grubby Mission District haunt, with nightly DJs playing good ol' rock 'n' roll. The small, black-walled back room can get pretty hot and sweaty when the DJs are firing on all cylinders. With a motto like "service for the sick," we can dig it.

  • Dell'Uva

    3235 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94110

  • The Den at the Fox

    The Den at the Fox

    1807 Telegraph Oakland, CA 94612
    510-548-3010 The Den is the luxe cocktail bar attached to the Fox Theater, with an opulent interior that offers a retro-classy environment in which to sip a few drinks before your chosen show next door (or perhaps just to lounge around while listening to select DJs and jazz musicians). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Dimples


    1700 Post San Francisco, CA 94115

    This underground Japantown dive - meaning you have to follow the street-level signs a floor down - has a reputation as a "hostess" bar, so don't be surprised if all the bartenders are cut from the same cloth and throw back drinks with their customers. Other things to know about Dimples: it has separate karaoke rooms; non-karaoke music is provided via CD jukebox; they give you complimentary peanuts; no one will stop you from smoking (despite signs stating it's not allowed); and all beer comes in bottles (i.e., no taps).

  • Blind Cat (Formerly Dirty Thieves)

    Blind Cat (Formerly Dirty Thieves)

    3050 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94110

    When this bar was called Treat Street Cocktails, dusty taxidermied animals stared down from every nook and cranny - but now rechristened as Blind Cat (and formerly Dirty Thieves), the space is cleaner and brighter, with the decor featuring tattoo flash artwork rather than dead deer heads. The crowd is cleaner and brighter, too, sipping on a variety of macrobrews and whiskeys while chatting loudly around the crowded bar and in the semi-circular booths.

  • District Oakland

    827 Washington St. Oakland, CA 94607

  • District Wine Lounge

    District Wine Lounge

    216 Townsend San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-896-2120 Stick to cheese plates, cured meats, oysters, and the smallest of small plates if you're eating a full-blown meal at this handsome, spacious wine bar near the Giants baseball stadium. The chickpea fries with chevre-stuffed Peppadew peppers and spicy albacore tempura roll are tasty. The kitchen definitely sits in the shadow of the wine list. The happy hour scene is dependably lively. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Divas


    1081 Post San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-474-3482 If you're transgender — or just wanna hang out with some — this place is the epicenter of TV/TS activity along Polk Gulch. DJs and dance performances add distraction from the parade of gender-fucking regulars at, around, and sometimes on top of the bar. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • DNA Lounge

    DNA Lounge

    375 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-626-1409 Looking like a spaceship from The Matrix with futuristic factory decor on two floors, the remodeled DNA has long been a fixture on this happening 11th Street block. Regular goth-industrial nights, weekly "Bootie" mash-up parties, cabaret shows, burlesque escapades, and miscellaneous house or hip-hop jams happen alongside occasional rock gigs and other special events. Some nights are all-ages and/or 18+, so check with the club before heading out. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Doc

    Doc's Clock

    2575 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-824-3627 It's cocktail time! So decrees the bright neon on the marquee above Doc's Clock - and who are we to disagree? This Mission Street stalwart with a long, hallway-like interior offers a late-running daily happy hour (including all day on Sundays), plus a shuffleboard table and a collection of board games that are almost as retro as the mid-century Americana decor. If you want to set the scene with some music, there's a well-stocked CD jukebox packed thick with fuzzy garage-rock, punk, and rockabilly, with some old-school soul and other groovy classics rounding out the sounds.

  • The Dogpatch Saloon

    The Dogpatch Saloon

    2496 Third St. San Francisco, CA 94107

    With your other choices in the neighborhood being generally limited to gentrifying wine bars and/or scruffy old dives, this amiable, old-fashioned corner saloon may be your best middle-of-the-road option when seeking a casual drink in Dogpatch. Take a seat in one of the wooden booths, pull up a stool at the antique bar, or grab a stick and shoot some pool -- this place aims to make you comfortable. Occasional jazz and blues musicians may also set up on the postage-stamp-sized stage to keep you entertained while sipping at the cold American beverage of your choice.

  • Don Ramon

    Don Ramon's

    225 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-864-2700 At festive Don Ramon's, hefty combination plates -- normally the territory of Mexican-esque eateries found east of Sacramento -- are the specialty. Diners at this SOMA restaurant can design their own platters, customizing from such cheese-laden standards as enchiladas, chiles rellenos, and tostadas. Pick an icy accompaniment from the margarita menu. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Dorsey

    Dorsey's Locker

    5817 Shattuck Ave. Oakland, CA 94609-1432

  • Double Dutch

    Double Dutch

    3192 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-503-1670 Call it "ersatz urban": with its '80s-era breakdancing photos, graffiti murals, and wall of retro boomboxes hovering behind the DJ booth, Double Dutch is old-school Bronx as re-imagined by Las Vegas. Fortunately it's cheaper than Vegas, with hip-hop, funk, and soul DJs spinning free music to the small dancefloor in the back. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Dovre Club

    Dovre Club

    1498 Valencia San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-285-4169 If the Dovre Club is still bitter about being given the boot from its original home - and a sign protesting that mid-'90s eviction still hangs here in its new location - this Mission District den does a good job hiding it otherwise. Dovre v2.0 may not be quite as divey as it once was, of course, but it's a relaxed and unfrumpy hangout nonetheless, with puffy couches, a pool table, and Irish beer memorabilia sharing space under the acoustic tile ceiling. The twentysomethings who order low-cost shots and microbrews today weren't legally allowed to drink in the old Dovre anyway - so the only nostalgia you'll experience in this comfy corner joint is the sound of the Pixies and other college-rock classics on the jukebox.

  • Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

    Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

    2323 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110

    Ostensibly inspired by the glammy rock band from The Muppet Show, in reality Dr. Teeth is less about Jim Henson's puppet creations (i.e., there are no actual Muppets) than it is about recreating a late-'70s vibe via poofy wall decorations, disco mirrors, silvery mannequin torsos, and more.

  • Drake

    508 4th St. San Francisco, CA 94107

  • Drake's Barrel House
