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.

  • La Rocca

    La Rocca's Corner

    957 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-674-1266 The sign outside La Rocca's shouts "This Is It!" -- almost as if they were psychic and knew your final destination was always intended to be this little neighborhood drinkery on the edge of North Beach. Lots of worn old wood and comforting earth tones give La Rocca's interior a lived-in feeling, while the large windows give you a great view on the world as it passes by. Since it's more of a friendly hangout than a fashion-forward hotspot, drinks aren't treated with too much seriousness or pomposity here: your best bet is probably a neat glass of whiskey or cold pint of your favorite classic American beer.

  • Larry Flynt's

    1031 Kearny San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Last Call Bar

    Last Call Bar

    3988 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-861-1310 If you can't stay out late enough to hear the actual last call at the Last Call, then consider dropping into this unpretentious Castro neighborhood gay bar during daylight hours — they proudly offer happy hour everyday between noon and 7 p.m. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Laszlo


    2532 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-7000 Foreign Cinema's little cousin features DJs in a posh setting. Although it stands out like a sore raised pinkie in its coarse Mission Street surroundings, it's a nice change of pace in an area laced with dive bars. Lively locals spin dance music and party jams (though there's no dance floor), and an air of class makes it worthwhile as more than a convenient post-meal move.

  • Latin American Club

    Latin American Club

    3286 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-647-2732 What you must know: they pour heavy. The margaritas are potent, poured into a pint glass with more than three-fourths real agave tequila. Braving your way through the first sips, you look up at the sign above the entrance that reads "sin" in red, lit-up letters behind chicken wire. The sign outside is a bit misleading: reclaimed found art, it sat in the basement of the Latin American Club owner's house until he opened up shop more than 17 years ago. But there is no salsa, no samba, no rumba, no cha-cha-cha. There are, however, piñatas - plenty of them, buoying overhead like parade floats. Salvaging trashed items, the owner has decorated the bar in the wacky and the tacky thrift-store tchotchkes and junkyard scraps, spattered about like flotsam. Above the till, a plate memorializing a regular, "The Red Man," perches. With his red suit, John Waters mustache, fedora, and crazy-eyed gawk, he seems to watch over the checkered floors.

  • The Layover

    The Layover

    1517 Franklin Oakland, CA 94612

  • Le Colonial

    Le Colonial

    20 Cosmo San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-931-3600 Recalling Vietnam during the time of French colonization, the upscale Le Colonial restaurant features a gorgeous, palm tree-lined interior. It's slowly but steadily attracting special events such as the Lotus party (every Saturday night). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Lefty O

    Lefty O'Doul's

    333 Geary San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-982-8900 Named for colorful San Francisco Seals baseball manager Francis "Lefty" O'Doul, this historical Union Square hofbrau and watering hole remains an unpretentious place to grab some hearty chow or guzzle some suds while catching a ballgame on TV. The authentic mid-century decor (heavy on nostalgic sports imagery) and counter-service food (heavy on salty meats) make O'Doul's a great spot for anyone who enjoys classic Americana and doesn't require fancy feasts or upscale new digs. In the evenings there's even a piano bar up front, in case you feel like indulging in some kitschy sing-alongs. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Legionnaire Saloon

    2272 Telegraph Oakland, CA 94612

  • Level III

    Level III

    500 Post San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-929-2087 This is a lavishly decorated restaurant, with seating ranging from lounge-y sofas to semicircular booths. There's a separate bar area in the soaring atrium entry off the elevators, which is dominated by a huge sculpture of dancing women and a flickering gas fireplace. The multicultural, eclectic menu also tries to be all things for all people. The food ranges from passable to tasty, but service can be rushed, or excruciatingly slow and clueless.

  • Lexington Club

    Lexington Club

    3464 19th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-863-2052 Cozy lesbian bar tucked into a Mission sidestreet. It's a bar, with lesbians - what more do you need to know? Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Li Po Cocktail Lounge

    Li Po Cocktail Lounge

    916 Grant San Francisco, CA 94108

    Granted, the competition is slim, but Li Po is the hippest music venue in Chinatown. The dank little basement (below the divey old bar) hosts fringe punk, funk, electro, and rock for a fashionista set, in an environment that has all the cinematic charms of the shadowy old neighborhood.

  • Lightning Tavern

  • Lion Pub

    Lion Pub

    2062 Divisadero San Francisco, CA 94115

    There's a veritable produce section worth of fresh fruit (and mint) on the bar used for the cocktails here. There's a spread of cheeses and crackers each weeknight for patrons to help themselves. There's a fireplace in case the mojitos or greyhounds aren't warming enough. Maybe the word is classy. Maybe it's chill. Lion Pub works as a precursor to a rowdy night on the town, or as a nightcap if you live in the area and want to bathe in its red glow before last call. After all, this Pac Heights chestnut and its well-mannered patrons don't keep returning just for the brie. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Little Baobab

    Little Baobab

    3388 19th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-643-3558 An offshoot of Bissap Baobab, the rollicking Senegalese restaurant right around the corner on mission St., Little Baobab is more of a club than an eatery--well-known for its reggae and afro-pop dance nights. The menu is similar to the larger restaurant's--festive, shareable Senegalese and Pan-African appetizers and entrees, like shrimp marinated in cloves, chilis, and garlic, tropical salads, and lamb in peanut sauce. The cocktails are unique here; try the Flamboyant (hibiscus, lime, and vodka) or the Salaan (a tamarind-based margarita). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Little Darlings

    Little Darlings

    312 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133

  • The Little Shamrock

    The Little Shamrock

    807 Lincoln San Francisco, CA 94122

    A charming bit of San Francisco history, the Little Shamrock is one of the oldest bars in the city -- and, thankfully, it hasn't felt the need to change much since it opened over a century ago. Local old-timers mingle with new neighbors, and sporty youngsters come in from Golden Gate Park (located directly across the street) to sip affordable drinks while surrounded by comfortably worn old furniture and historical decor. You can also play a game of backgammon on the tables in front, shoot darts in the chalk-slathered back room, or simply pull up a stool to the vintage wood bar and catch up on current events.

  • Local Edition

    691 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-795-1975 Stop the presses! If you ever dreamed of being a hard-nosed (and hard-drinking) newspaper editor from the mid-20th century, then this journo-themed bar on Market Street might be the place for you. Just remember that a few strong cocktails won't transform you from Clark Kent into Superman. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Lolinda

    2522 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94110

  • Lone Palm

    Lone Palm

    3394 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-0109 Walking through the swinging door at Lone Palm is like stumbling into some colonial desert oasis. White linens cover the tables. Flickering tea lights set the mood. Wood mermaids and palm tree plaques add just the right amount of kitsch. A lone bartender methodically pours and mixes drinks, while patrons sip cocktails and munch on proffered peanuts and Goldfish. How crowded the place will be is anyone's guess, so if it's quiet, settle in for intimate conversation; if it's busy, get ready for hobnobbin' and fun. Happy hour is seven nights a week from 4-6 p.m., with a dollar off all liquor, $3 bottled beer, and an extra discount on house's choice of higher-end liquor like flavored Stoli or Ketel One.

    415-863-9999 The Lone Star Saloon is a small gay South of Market hangout that claims status as the "world's first bear bar," open since 1989.
