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.

    The Gangway

    841 Larkin San Francisco, CA 94109

    A wooden mockup of the Titanic's prow juts out of the front of this Tenderloin dive bar, where a faded rainbow flag lets you know gays are welcome (while the Bud Light neon in the window lets you know it ain't a fancypants kinda place). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Geary Club

    Geary Club

    768 Geary San Francisco, CA 94109

    The Geary Club isn't a secret hideaway for an exclusive few people-in-the-know, but you might start to believe that on your first expedition to find the place - because this tiny, unmarked dive has no sign to alert you to its location. It's almost literally a hole in the wall. Once inside, however, old winos and young hipsters alike sidle up to grab one of the dozen barstools while cigarette smoke fills the air, a fake tiger stares down from the wall, and the CD jukebox spins hits from days gone by. Lillian, the sassy veteran behind the counter, will pour you a basic shot o' liquor or crack the seal on a cold beer bottle. Don't try to order anything complicated. The Geary Club is a place for people who like their drinks three ways: cheap, strong, and often. If that's you, consider yourself an honorary member already.

    Gestalt Haus

    3159 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-655-9935 With an impressive beer selection of high-end imports and domestic craft brews as well as beers of the "blue collar" variety, the Mission District's Gestalt Haus caters to casual and serious beer drinkers alike. Gestalt has 20 beers on tap, including lagers, pilsners, porters, stouts, German wheat beers, and Belgian ales. It also has several kinds of steins from whence to swill, such as "das boot" reserved for Spaten, their Bavarian lager on tap. You can also find a variety of local flavors: Anchor as well as Downtown Brown, Racer 5, and the Lagunitas-brewed Sonoma Farmhouse Hop Stoopid. A casual place to lounge and booze, Gestalt's also the spot for a light nosh and nibble on sammies and brats. There are even meat-free Italian and Kielbasa sauages for vegetarians. The friendly bartenders will recommend which beers go best with your pork, chicken, or beef sausage. A comfortable spot with a jukebox, pool table, pinball, and arcade games.

  • Gino & Carlo Cocktail Lounge

    Gino & Carlo Cocktail Lounge

    548 Green San Francisco, CA 94133

    Usually playing Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" on the jukebox is a cliché best left to tourist traps - but hearing the man born Anthony Benedetto sing his ode to S.F. feels right at Gino and Carlo, an old-school Italian joint in North Beach where diehard locals often outnumber visitors. Gino and Carlo is more of a neighborhood hangout than a trendy destination, the kind of place you go to drink fizzy American lager on tap, shoot pool on the two tables in back, and scope out the tributes by Frank Sinatra, Herb Caen, and other icons on the walls. This is the City as it used to be. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Glen Park Station

    Glen Park Station

    2816 Diamond San Francisco, CA 94131

    A convivial neighborhood bar -- and, for the most part, the only show in this quiet part of town -- the Glen Park Station is just a few steps from its namesake BART stop, making it equally good for a quick post-work brew as it is for a slow, casual game of darts with your buddies later at night.

  • Gold Cane Cocktail Lounge

    Gold Cane Cocktail Lounge

    1569 Haight San Francisco, CA 94117

    A cozy and unpretentious local watering hole that's been at this Haight Street location for decades. The latest interior upgrade seems to have taken place in the 1970s: all the Gold Cane needs is a few ferns and some macrame and you'd feel like you're in your parents' old den -- provided your parents had a pool table and a variety of cold beer on tap.

  • Gold Dust Lounge

    Gold Dust Lounge

    165 Jefferson San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-397-1695 The Gold Dust has long been a San Francisco institution, heralded by the late Herb Caen as "the last of the authentic nightcapperies" -- a rave that must have delighted owners Jimmy and Tasios Vovis, who've plastered it all over the walls. Unfortunately the original Union Square location closed in 2012 after a controversial dispute with the building's landlord, but the bar's beloved antique lamps and oil paintings were packed up and moved to a new Fisherman's Wharf space in early 2013.

    The Grand Nightclub

    520 Fourth St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-814-3008 This longtime dance club -- previously known as the Trocadero Transer, Glas Kat, and other names -- was recently remodeled yet again, re-opening for business in late 2011 with lots of shiny new fixtures and a color scheme heavy on gold, black, crimson, and mahogany.

  • Grant & Green Saloon

    Grant & Green Saloon

    1371 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133

    This semi-dive in the heart of North Beach is a sure bet for loud rock, cheap drinks, and a crowd of local characters. A sidewalk barker pulls in tourists for blues-rock sets and cover bands on the weekends, but during the week the place is reclaimed by long-haired locals who like their music a little rougher.

  • Great American Music Hall

    Great American Music Hall

    859 O'Farrell San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-885-0750 An exquisite mid-size room with grandiose antique ornamentation, a large stage, and an atmosphere of ornate historical luxury. Perched between the Tenderloin, Civic Center, and Polk Gulch neighborhoods, this hall first opened in 1907 and has been everything from a bordello to a jazz club to its current incarnation as one of the city's best places to see both old musical favorites and rising young stars.

  • Greens Sports Bar

    Greens Sports Bar

    2239 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109

    The walls in this Russian Hill drinking den are so packed with framed sports memorabilia that every inch is cluttered with an old Giants photo, a poster of Joe Montana, a nostalgic magazine collage, and other evidence of long-cherished San Francisco fandom. Got a Will Clark rookie card you want to squeeze into the mix? Good luck finding enough free space. When the game is on, locals (and sometimes a few stray tourists) crowd in to watch one of the multitude of flat-screen TVs hanging throughout the bar. There's also an elevated rear section with extra seating and a pool table -- but watch your step if you're easily distracted by the televised sports action, or you'll take a nasty spill down the stairs.

  • Grumpy

    Grumpy's Restaurant & Pub

    125 Vallejo San Francisco, CA 94111
    415-434-3350 A semi-hidden hangout tucked into the business district between Broadway, North Beach, and the Embarcadero - aka "Old Media Gulch" due to the TV broadcasting stations nearby - Grumpy's attracts both old media employees and new media dot-commers for its lunchtime burger menu and after-work happy hours. The exposed brick walls and pub-like feel make it cozy despite the relatively upscale clientele, although early closing hours (and no weekend hours) require your timely attendance. Their motto is "deal with it" - and the playfully gruff, fern-chewing bulldog mascot stares down from Grumpy's sign to ensure that you do. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
