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.

  • ROKA Bar

    801 Montgomery St. San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Rooster's Roadhouse

    1700 Clement Alameda, CA 94501

  • Rosewood


    732 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-951-4886 Just off the touristy stretch of Columbus and Broadway hides Rosewood - a simple, clean, modern lounge. On weekends, the DJ spins current and nostalgic faves (think Lady Gaga backed by Warren G). The crowd mostly sips bourbon, although Rosewood also has Stella on tap and a few wines by the glass. If you're VIP enough to get an invite to the back patio, take it: this hidden gem is only open for private parties (of which it hosts many). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rouge


    1500 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-346-7683 The weekend parties at this crimson-walled nightclub (hence the name) cater to the upper crust of Marina/Russian Hill party people, who are probably more interested in being seen than deep listening. The DJs on the decks bring a wide selection of dance-floor faves -- from Top 40 and funky house to hip-hop and neo-soul. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Route 101

    Route 101

    1332 Van Ness San Francisco, CA 94109

    Part sports bar and part neighborhood living room, Route 101 is also the Regency Ballroom's de facto pre-concert meetup spot -- you can almost guess who's performing next door just by peeking in the Route's window before the show starts. But if you simply want to watch a football game, slouch on one of the couches with a Budweiser and Bloody Mary, or play some pool on the two tables in back, this informal watering hole can be a worthy enough destination on its own.

  • The Royal Cuckoo

    The Royal Cuckoo

    3202 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-550-8667 This former Mission dive (Belinda's, we hardly knew ye) has taken a sudden turn for the hip. New owners transformed the tiny space into a den of droll anachronistic culture, where vintage lamps cast a subtle glow over a collection of thrift-shop paintings, taxidermy animal heads, and half-quaint/half-quirky retro tchotchkes. You might find a local musician warming the keys of the electric organ in the corner, or perhaps a solo bluesman blowing on his harp, but otherwise the soundtrack comes via a dusty old record player: simply flip through the repurposed library card catalog to find the title of your favorite LP of folksy Americana, classic jazz, trad Latin, tropical exotica, or "Novelty and Beyond," then tell the bartender to slap that platter on the turntable. The most modern thing in the Royal Cuckoo is its signature drink menu - artisanal cocktails being very trendy and "now," of course - so despite the hipster clientele, don't come here looking for the latest high-tech fad. The Royal Cuckoo is the rotary telephone of San Francisco bars. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Royal Exchange

    The Royal Exchange

    301 Sacramento San Francisco, CA 94111
    415-956-1710 The Royal Exchange could quite possibly be known as FiDi's unofficial living room. The white-collar crowds come during the week and don't stay late, meaning they might make last call well within time to get home and say goodnight to the kids. This Irish pub/sports bar serves an impressive selection of beers on tap (72 to be exact), a few wine options, and a complete cocktail menu. The restaurant menu is equally crowd-pleasing, including typical pub fare (burgers, fries, and salads). Its reputation as being a high-rollers' hook-up locale is still alive, yet bartenders claim its peak was in the dot-com days. Still, the curtains on the private booths were removed for a reason.

  • Royal Oak

    Royal Oak

    2201 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109

    If your great-great-grandmother had been a tippler, she'd probably have felt right at home at the Royal Oak, where antique sofas, stained glass lamps, and gilt-framed mirrors set the scene -- only the deep, shadowy darkness separates the Royal Oak from a fancy old Victorian parlor. Though the door to enter this Russian Hill bar might be mere feet from Bullitt's shiny newness, the Royal Oak feels like it exists in an entirely different universe. The taps feature a rotating array of thoroughly modern microbrews, however, so you don't need to feel limited to gimlets or other cocktails from a bygone era.

  • The Royale

    The Royale

    800 Post San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-441-4099 A regular series of free acoustic, jazz, comedy, and film events draw curious locals and tourists alike to this windowed cafe nestled between the Union Square, Nob Hill, and upper Tenderloin neighborhoods. Filled with sunlight during the day and candlelit at night, the ceramic hex tile floors and high ceilings go for a classy vibe, while a large semi-circular sofa cozies up the middle of the room. There's even a pool table, should you feel like knocking around a few billiard balls. Fans of pulp literature should also drop into Kayo Books next door, then saunter to the other end of the block and see the apartment building where Dashiell Hammett wrote The Maltese Falcon.

  • The Ruby Room

    The Ruby Room

    132 14th St. Oakland, CA 94612

    Dark, dark, dark - how do the bartenders see well enough to pour drinks in here? This stylish-but-chill hangout by Lake Merritt in downtown O-Town is a good place to disappear with a drink while DJs spin hipster-approved tunes to a cool crowd. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Ruby Skye

    Ruby Skye

    420 Mason San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-693-0777 One of San Francisco's most well-heeled dance clubs, this multilevel venue is host to steamy house-music and trance DJs (with several special guests and events each month), weekly concerts, and corporate parties. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rumors

    398 7th St. San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Russian River Brewing Company

    725 Fourth St. Santa Rosa, CA 95404

  • Rye

    688 Geary San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-474-4448 The trend for rye cocktails was a short-lived affair, but this upmarket bar on Geary Street still packs 'em in on weekends. The "cocktail cage" smoking area is also unique in that it makes the drinkers seem like the ones on display, rather than the eye-candy passersby. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
