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.

  • R Bar

    R Bar

    1176 Sutter San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-567-7441 The bare-bones exterior and block-letter signage may lead you to assume this Polk Gulch joint is a dingy hole in the wall, but the R Bar is more of a trendy hangout than a Tenderloin dive. Inside you'll find stylish, subtle lighting and snazzy decor, plus a post-collegiate crowd knocking back microbrews while sports and movies beam from multiple flat-screen TVs and rock and hip-hop blare from the CD jukebox.

  • Radio Bar

    Radio Bar

    435 13th St. Oakland, CA 94612
    510-451-2889 Very dark and very red - if this is how you like your drinking spots, you'll love Radio. A small boîte in downtown Oakland with crimson paper lanterns and candles as its only illumination, the Radio Bar goes from cozy to crowded with a quickness, especially when crowds squeeze in to hear DJs on weekends. A small, caged-in rear mezzanine area provides somewhere to escape from the bodies on the main floor. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Ramp

    The Ramp

    855 Terry Francois San Francisco, CA 94158
    415-621-2378 You almost expect to see 1970s-era Jimmy Buffett sipping margaritas on the patio of this waterfront bar with a sun-faded beach shack atmosphere. On summer weekends, however, live salsa bands fill the afternoon air with decidedly more Latin-flavored music. When enjoying the Bloody Marys and boleros, remember to bring sunglasses and watch out for seagulls. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Raven

    1151 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Red Devil Lounge

    Red Devil Lounge

    1695 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-921-1695 A variety of independent rock bands perform in this intimate, sassy space clad in comfy booths and intricate iron chandeliers. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Red Jack Saloon

    Red Jack Saloon

    131 Bay San Francisco, CA 94133

    New England expats will feel right at home in the Red Jack Saloon, where the relaxed, den-like environment and Bostonian sports decor might make you believe this is truly the place where everybody knows your name. When not watching the games in the main room, grab a bench at one of two picnic tables in the small rear patio, which comes complete with a fence painted like the Fenway Park scoreboard - and yet this place is so friendly, even Yankees fans should feel welcomed. (During NFL season, the Red Jack fills with Washington Redskins supporters; that team was founded in Beantown, however, so Boston purists shouldn't fret.) For those who don't care about sports, a full bar, daily drink specials, and occasional free food buffets offer distractions beyond what's screening on the TVs.

  • Red Tavern

    Red Tavern

    2224 Clement St. San Francisco, CA 94121

  • Red's Place

    672 Jackson St. San Francisco, CA 94133-5008

  • Redwood Room

    495 Geary St. San Francisco, CA 94102-1222

  • Reed & Greenough

    3251 Scott San Francisco, CA 94123

  • The Regency Ballroom

    The Regency Ballroom

    1290 Sutter San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-673-5716 The elegant old Scottish Rite building that boasts "three separate venues" is primarily known for its Grand Ballroom, a balconied and beautiful (if not acoustically perfect) rococo room that was famous in the 1960s as the Avalon Ballroom, a hippie hotspot for iconic psychedelic groups like the Grateful Dead and Captain Beefheart. Today it hosts everything from rock bands to raves and gala celebrations. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Residence

    The Residence

    718 14th St. San Francisco, CA 94114

    Entering the Residence is like stepping into a sumptuous Victorian parlor. You almost expect to hear a fire crackling in the background. Instead the bar mixes old-timey appeal (like the ample eclectic seating options: fur covered poufs, velvet couches, and a black velvet fainting couch tucked in the back corner) with modern bar amenities (like the flat-screen TV). Small and cozy, the dark wood paneling and dim lighting make everyone look attractive. The crowd is calm and friendly, a healthy mix of neighborhood regulars. There's a standard 5-7 p.m. happy hour with discount well drinks and beers, but the classic cocktails, like potent Hurricanes, still cost full price. Other attractions: On Sunday nights there's a barbecue on the back porch, and on Wednesdays the owner hosts a wine and liquor tasting. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Retro

    1663 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Revolution Cafe

    Revolution Cafe

    3248 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-642-0474 The walls of this breezy Mission District cafe display a continuously changing exhibition of local visual art, and Papa Toby's diverse music calendar follows suit. The small room -- plus an always popular sidewalk seating area -- offers free live jazz, creative folk, chamber music, and other sonic treats. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rickhouse


    246 Kearny San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-398-2827 With its tall, swinging front porch doors, and an upstairs balcony that resembles an urban hayloft, the Rickhouse is downtown San Francisco's version of southern comfort. There are roughly 200 different kinds of whiskey available, but the bar's gin and vodka concoctions are just as inviting. Bartenders sporting paperboy hats and string suspenders mix 'em all up with fresh organic juices, bottled soda and berry and fruit infusions. The drink of choice is the Kentucky Buck (bourbon infused with strawberries, lemon, ginger beer and bitters); the novelty treat is the punch bowl, presented in vintage white-frosted glass. Waiting for a drink? Press your way to the second bar in the back. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rickshaw Stop

    Rickshaw Stop

    155 Fell San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-861-2011 Though the Rickshaw's unmarked facade makes it a little difficult to find, you'll receive ample rewards for the search. Some of the country's most progressive DJs and indie bands play in the club's friendly confines, which features a great sound system, upstairs mezzanine for added visibility, and frequent all-ages shows for the kids.

  • Riddim

    581 Fifth St. Oakland, CA 94607

  • The Riptide

    The Riptide

    3639 Taraval San Francisco, CA 94116
    415-759-7263 With its roaring fireplace and wood-paneled walls, hearty drinks, and amazing free live music calendar, the Riptide is a cozy home away from home for many. DJs spin punk, ska, and metal on Wednesday through Friday nights, with folk, bluegrass, and Americana bands and players taking over on Saturdays and Sundays. Homemade vittles on Friday evening, surf videos on the TV, and a friendly staff make this a perfect after-beach warm-up spot. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Rite Spot Cafe

    The Rite Spot Cafe

    2099 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-552-6066 Folk and jazz dominate the Spot's ever-improving ambience, whose sense of style lies somewhere between a dive bar and a dinner club: casual cocktails and comfort grub (e.g., burgers, pasta, sandwiches) fill the menu, while local art and tablecloths add a sense of class for those who like it nice. A perfect place to see live music and sit comfortably while noshing on a plate of your favorite carbohydrates. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • RN74


    301 Mission San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-543-7474 The hotly awaited wine bar from Michael Mina features an impressive wine list from many countries as well as France, where you'll find the highway running through Burgundy after which the place is named. We prefer the bar menu to the dining room menu (some dishes are available on both). The stylish room is reminiscent of a train station, with a high-arched ceiling, exposed struts, and signboards mimicking train departure boards that list wines instead of destinations. An interesting cocktail list attracts crowds (and noise). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Roaring 20

    Roaring 20's

    552 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Roccapulco Supper Club

    Roccapulco Supper Club

    3140 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-6611 Salsa dancing is the featured attraction at this gigantic Mission District supper club, which loves nothing more than a great party (including annual extravaganzas for Mardi Gras and Carnaval). Weekend events are usually $10-$15, with special international band performances costing extra. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Rock Bar

    80 29th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-550-6664 Formerly the International Club, this Mission/Bernal bar has changed hands and is now being run by the people behind Front Porch, who swapped its international passport for a more down-home Americana attitude and a yuppie-rustic decor scheme. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Rock Steady

    1741 San Pablo Oakland, CA 94612

  • Rocketfish


    1469 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-282-9666 Rocketfish is a sushi and Japanese-style tapas restaurant and bar located in the former Lingba Lounge space. "Japanese-style tapas," you ask? Yes. Owners Marco Rodriguez and Kenichi Kawashima would be happy to explain it to you - and serve a few fishy small plates while they're at it - as you take in the casually hip surroundings.
