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.

    42011 Boscell Road Fremont, CA 94538-3106

  • The Saloon

    The Saloon

    1232 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-989-7666 Revered for its daily live blues performances, the Saloon also has the rugged distinction of having survived the 1906 earthquake and standing as the oldest bar in San Francisco (opened in 1861). With its rough aged-wood interior and hardy clientele, the Saloon definitely stands apart from the shiny new neighbors along this nightlife-rich stretch of North Beach.

    Savanna Jazz Club

    2937 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-285-3369 Savanna stands out in its neighborhood: it's almost as if a North Beach jazz club dropped a spore on Mission Street. Intimate and comfortable, with accents of fake plastic plants, Savanna presents live jazz most nights of the week, along with dinner and drinks at a reasonable price.

  • Savoy Tivoli

    Savoy Tivoli

    1434 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133

    Opened the year after the 1906 earthquake, the Savoy Tivoli has seen a lot of changing faces over the past century -- and if you spend enough time in this old bohemian bar, you may well see some changing faces yourself. In the late afternoons and evenings, the Savoy Tivoli is a mellow, airy place in which to sip a cocktail while listening to classic bebop on the stereo and enjoying the artsy retro decor (e.g., colorful glass lanterns, sculptural lamps, jazz collages). As night falls, however, the music switches to contemporary pop as the crowd swells with young partiers looking to quaff pints, shoot pool, or maybe even dance under the disco ball that hangs in the small back room. Of course, the North Beach party crowd probably doesn't appreciate the bar's historical relevance -- but the Savoy Tivoli will likely outlive them anyway.

  • Score Bar & Lounge

    490 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

  • SF Badlands

    SF Badlands

    4121 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-626-9320 Out-of-towners coming to the Castro will always need a garish watering hole in which to dance and get trashed. Badlands is that place. The beats are strictly uncomplicated club hits and Top 40, and the diva-heavy videos are always amusing if not predictable. Locals, however, tend to steer clear of the venue because of recent accusations of racial discrimination by some of its former clientele. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • SF Jazz Center

    201 Franklin St. San Francisco, CA 94102

  • SF Mix

    SF Mix

    4086 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-431-8616 Mix is a quintessential gayborhood bar: rainbow flags as far as the eye can see, super-sweet bartenders (some in tight white tanks), many flavors of Absolut, and a dance-friendly jukebox. What Mix has that other gay bars might not is a slammin' back patio, complete with an additional full bar, robust heat lamps, pool table, large-screen TVs, free-condom bin, and margarita machine. Sip on those at 6 a.m. when they open (which they do on a daily basis). Mix also boasts generous happy hours: 3-7 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 10 p.m. on weekends. But you'll pay cash for your drinks - they don't accept cards, but do have an ATM if needed. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Shanghai Kelly

    Shanghai Kelly's

    2064 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-771-3300 The cooler labeled "spare livers" above the bar is indicative of the workouts livers get here. Russian Hill bros outnumber gals ten-to-one. There's so much male bonding going on that the din drowns out the sportscasters from the three screens set to various sports channels. The kitschy decor (photos of Gilligan and his island hotties, a man mooning sheep in New Zealand, etc.) offers plenty of visual stimuli for those who attempt to try all of the house-made cocktails (many of which are liquor + lemonade).

  • Sheba Piano Lounge

    Sheba Piano Lounge

    1419 Fillmore San Francisco, CA 94115
    415-440-7414 Don't let the hokey exterior fool you, this place offers a comfortable, even classy setting in the heart of the Fillmore. Perhaps Meatless Mondays will draw you in, as all Ethiopian restaurants seem to have great vegetarian menus. This one costs more, but delivers the goods (they've even made the injera upscale), as does the cocktail list. Half the house cocktails are made with Ethiopian spiced bitters - and even the others are suitably named, such as the Abyssinian Storm (which is essentially a Dark and Stormy, but a really good one) - or you can order Tej, traditional honey wine. Note: This is not for the budget drinker. As for the piano lounge, expect a soloist early in the week, but midweek to weekend nights is when a trio completes the ambiance.

  • Shine


    1337 Mission San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-252-1423 For those looking for a late-night club without the velvet ropes and exorbitant covers, Shine is your diamond in the city's rough. This little bar/dancefloor is hidden behind an unobtrusive door in a relatively inconspicuous part of SOMA. The DJs spin house and trance as the numerous disco balls dance light all over the dark walls, hardwood floors, and sparse furnishings. The TVs bleed from one animated colorful blur into the next as Mission hipsters sip mostly mixed drinks. Things might be happening here prior to 11 p.m., but it's unlikely - show up after 11:30 p.m. if you want company. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Shotwell


    3349 20th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-4104 Established in 1891 - though it's gone through numerous permutations since then - this neighborhood bar offers a relaxing atmosphere to get your beer on. Whether you lean toward imports or craft beers, and whether you prefer draft or bottled beer, you'll find the gamut from cheapo pints of Anchor to break-the-bank numbers from rare, remote breweries. There's also some wine, cider, and soft drinks for the hop haters. Make yourself at home among the friendliest subset of the typical Mission crowd, who will be happy to play you a game of 8-ball on the beater billiard table or change the channel to your favorite sporting or even non-sporting event.

  • Showdown


    10 Sixth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-255-7920 The venue formerly known as the Matador - and the Arrow Bar before that - has morphed yet again. The Deco-retro wood bar and cool vintage lights are still here, however, with a handful of candlelit tables edging the small dance floor in back. And whatever subtle decor changes may occur, this li'l spot on gritty Sixth Street is always a source of sweet downtown beats, ranging from indie hip-hop, funk, and dubstep to downtempo, house, and more. Keep an ear bent their way if underground sounds are your thing. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Silver Clouds

    Silver Clouds

    1994 Lombard San Francisco, CA 94123
    415-922-1977 Silver Clouds has karaoke most nights: When the bar is open Tuesday through Sunday, you can take your turn on the mic from 9:30 pm on. The stage is set up with a disco ball and a wall of Christmas lights, and your performance is broadcast to the entire bar via flat-screen TV. It's also a large sports bar with no shortage of seating, though you can brave the S.F. air on the well-sized smoking patio out back. Standard bar food like burgers or calamari help soak up the strong $6 mixed drinks. Beware: weekends are packed. If you want to sing Neil Diamond's greatest hits uninterrupted, go on a weeknight.

  • Silver Spur

    Silver Spur

    1914 Irving San Francisco, CA 94122

    The Silver Spur is a bright, occasionally boisterous, and often laid-back local watering hole that's as American as the cowboy boot on its sign. You wouldn't come here to order the complex European cocktail-du-jour that's trendy in SOMA nightclubs. This is a place to grab a Budweiser, catch the Giants game on TV, and forget about that timeclock waiting for you at work tomorrow. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Sinbad's Pier II Restaurant

    2 Pier San Francisco, CA 94105

  • Sip Bar & Lounge

    Sip Bar & Lounge

    787 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-699-6545 Where the class and sophistication of Nob Hill, the lower-east-side grittiness of Chinatown, and the vibrance of North Beach intersect. SIP BAR & LOUNGE is a classic, urban cocktail lounge and weekend nightclub offering an array of spirits, beer, wine, visual and musical entertainment with an unpretentious and welcoming feel.

  • Skool Restaurant and Bar

    1725 Alameda San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Skybox Lounge

    6005 Shellmound St. Emeryville, CA 94608-1931

  • Skylark Bar

    Skylark Bar

    3089 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-621-9294 A dandy DJ bar with grand, high ceilings - which must have looked even grander when smokers reigned supreme in our nightlife - though nowadays the cigarette smokers lounge around on the 16th Street sidewalk while the sound of DJs spinning hip-hop, funk, and reggae emanates from within. Bonus for broke music and cocktail fans: There's never a cover charge. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Slate Bar

    Slate Bar

    2925 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-558-8521 Som Bar has rebranded itself as Slate, but the mod-minimalist decor and funky DJs remain. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
