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.

  • Ma


    1408 Market San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-626-8884 Ma'velous has a lot going on. It serves some of the hardest-to-find coffees (prepared six ways, no less), a tight menu of light local fare, a wide variety of wine, and a small selection of bottled beer. The glamorous space attracts a mix of coffee geeks, theater-/museumgoers, or Market Street loners. Wines range from local Sonoma vineyards to French and New Zealand imports. By-the-glass options start at $7 and bottle prices can exceed $40. The food menu changes, but is steered towards complimenting the wine, so expect small cheese plates, olive blends, and nuts.

    Mad Dog in the Fog

    530 Haight San Francisco, CA 94117
    415-626-7279 British expats flock here for televised "football" games and pints of their favorite ale. Check out the infamous pub quiz on Thursday. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Madrone Art Bar

    Madrone Art Bar

    500 Divisadero San Francisco, CA 94117
    415-241-0202 Unless you're dying to catch a show at the Independent, this is the place on Divisadero to go. Everything in here is created by local artists, from the design of the space right down to the menus, while DJs spin everything from hip-hop, funk, and soul to vintage jazz and retro rock 'n' roll.

  • Maggie McGarry

    Maggie McGarry's

    1353 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-399-9020 The term "Irish pub" likely sends images of hokey shamrocks, Guinness logos, and other Kelly-green colored marketing materials through your head. But rest assured, Maggie McGarry's is the real deal rather than riddled with gimmicks. Sure, they have Guinness on tap (along with Sierra Nevada and Widmer), local drunks at the bar, and a bartender with an Irish accent, but it's hardly manufactured. The place also becomes a karaoke bar on Wednesdays and hosts live music on most weekends. Confused by the lack of stage? It's hidden! The second bar area converts into a venue by folding back giant room dividers. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Make-Out Room

    Make-Out Room

    3225 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-647-2888 It feels almost like a bingo parlor at the community church. Fortunately, the quirky Midwestern atmosphere of this bar lends itself to the mostly folk and country acts that perform here. Regular DJ nights also expand the soundtrack to include everything from Latin funk and Jamaican ska to New Wave and indie dance hits. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Marina Lounge

    Marina Lounge

    2138 Chestnut San Francisco, CA 94123
    415-922-1475 Need a place to chill in the Marina? The small Marina Lounge fits the bill. There's a full bar, stiff drinks are poured, and the few tables are mostly taken up by regulars. If you can snag the coveted people-watching table up front, do it - it does not disappoint. If you head to the back, you'll find a pool table, Pac-Man machine, and a jukebox stocked with classic rock, blues, and jazz - e.g., Stevie Ray Vaughan, older David Bowie, Frank Sinatra - but no Beyoncé.

  • Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant

    Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant

    419 O’Farrell San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-776-6717 This venerable Moroccan restaurant is exotically decorated, with low banquettes, brass tray tables, and hassocks. The prix-fixe menu includes three starters, a choice of entrée, dessert, and mint tea (a la carte entrées are available for less). The food is well-prepared and sincere. Excellent for large parties. Belly dancing happens nightly to recorded music, and servers join in on tabla. Surprisingly family-friendly. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mars Bar & Restaurant

    Mars Bar & Restaurant

    798 Brannan San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-621-6277 On weekday afternoons, a young after-work crowd comes to the Mars Bar & Restaurant looking to get drunk and load up on starchy American food. On weekend nights, house music fans come to the Mars Bar looking to hear some casual DJ beats. At all times, however, people come to the Mars Bar for its small back patio, whose vaguely tropical setting is one of the few places to sip a cocktail outdoors in SOMA. And if the food and music aren't your thing, there's also a pool table for a few games of 8 ball. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Martin Macks Restaurant and Bar

    Martin Macks Restaurant and Bar

    1568 Haight San Francisco, CA 94117

    With at least 10 flat-screen TVs viewable from any seat in the house, Martin Macks accommodates all sports fanatics. Framed Haight-Ashbury Street Fair flyers hang from the wall to remind you where you are. Lit by studio lights, this is a cozy spot to enjoy a game, though it does get loud. The front section houses the main bar, and round, dark-wood tables large enough to seat eight (or possibly more) line the walls leading to the back, where a second, smaller bar and pool table sit. The drinks are standard Belgian, Irish, and Danish brews with domestic favorites such as Big Daddy IPA and Blue Moon. The fare is typical pub grub, but the standout dishes are the wood-fired pesto and potato pizza and the fluffy-topped, creamy shepherd's pie. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Martuni


    4 Valencia San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-241-0205 This very gay piano bar features pianists ranging from the classically trained to the classically cornball. Its solid reputation as a place to get tipsy and belt out a little Sondheim keeps its walls packed. But don't think that just anyone can step up to the mike - the tone-deaf are weeded out posthaste. On Sunday evenings, local drag celebrities take over the spotlight at 7 p.m. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mas Sake

    Mas Sake

    2030 Lombard San Francisco, CA 94123
    415-440-1505 Making plans for the night and you want sushi, but you want cocktails, too? You should head here. The food is a Japanese/Mexican fusion that makes for interesting flavors. The fish is fresh enough, but the kitchen doesn't want anything on the menu that doesn't have a silly name (The Crazy Courtney Roll or You're Hot, I'm Scot, for example) or half a dozen superfluous ingredients. A wide selection of sake is available, naturally, and the sake bombs are good, including an inventive one with cider. On weekends, Mas Sake has a fun, upbeat, club-type atmosphere: the lights are low, the DJ is spinning, the drinks are flowing, and the crowd tends to be a bit more dressed-up. Sometimes spontaneous dancing happens. The wait staff is oh-so-easy on the eyes, but the restrooms are small, so plan accordingly. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • MatrixFillmore


    3138 Fillmore San Francisco, CA 94123
    415-563-4180 There's a stark sleekness to the Matrix. The free-standing fireplace (akin to a Jenga tower) gives off a Zen vibe while the cool concrete and decorative chains by the mirror add industrial minimalism. Serpentine seating reserved for bottle-service clientele lines the suede walls. Without reservations, you can take a seat by the fireplace, at the bar, or at any of the rear tables in the mocked-up library. Broken up into time slots, each night offers a different vibe depending on the hour: In lieu of a happy hour, there's the Early Bird with $5 beers and well drinks, and the nightly calendar rotates DJs and genres between Top 40, soul, funk, dance music, and what they call "Party Rock." As far as cocktails go, try the Raspberry Beret, which is made with St. Germain Elderflower, hand-pressed lemons, and fresh raspberries. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mauna Loa Club

    Mauna Loa Club

    3009 Fillmore San Francisco, CA 94123

    If you're looking for some laid-back fun in the Marina, hit up this combination dive/Hawaiian/sports bar with an easygoing regular crowd. While you may be expecting some serious Hawaiian kitsch, you won't find it here, though you will find a jukebox with an odd mix (Journey one moment, a Jay-Z B-side the next), plus games including Big Buck Hunter, Super Shot basketball, a foosball table, and a pool table. The Loa boasts 20 reasonably-priced beers on tap, one of which is Pabst Blue Ribbon, and you can get a good Mai Tai if fruity drinks are what you crave. Cash only!
