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.

  • Slide


    430 Mason San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-421-1916 Stroll past the crowds mobbed outside Ruby Skye and, hidden behind an unmarked door, you'll find Slide - so named for one optional method of getting down to the dancefloor area: back in the old Prohibition era, patrons visiting this address would ride a slide down to a hidden house of debauchery named Coffee Dan's. (Today's less adventurous souls can just take the stairs, if they so choose, and passively partake in the Coffee Dan's experience by watching Al Jolson's The Jazz Singer.) Lots of gleaming wood harks back to those speakeasy days when swells would sneak illicit drinks and dance a few Charlestons, but don't expect F. Scott and Zelda types swinging to Jazz Age classics. Slide is more Puff Daddy than Jay Gatsby, and the DJs' selections of Top 40, hip-hop, and house music reflect it. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Slim


    333 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-255-0333 Slim's is a midsize, brick-walled venue that hosts a variety of underground rock, metal, hip-hop, and reggae bands - and not only is it one of the few live music clubs in a neighborhood dominated by DJ discothèques, it's also one of the best places in the city for underage music fans to catch bands on the way up. There's a full bar for clubgoers over 21, plus a rear upstairs balcony with seating and tables if you want to take a load off and get away from the throngs below.

  • Sloane


    1525 Mission San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-621-7007 Located in a historic building that survived the 1906 earthquake, the recently expanded Sloane (aka Sloane Squared) has been transformed into a gorgeous cavern. The exposed brick hints at the club's past, while lavish accents of redwood paneling line the counter and dress up some of the walls. Upstairs, the mezzanine has five VIP tables and sleek, black leather sofas. On an elevated platform, the DJ spins house and dance music for the crowds down below on the main floor. At the bar, try a signature raspberry mojito or, if you're into something more adventurous, opt for a glass of champagne with a shot of Gran Centanario Rose Angel tequila.

  • Smiley

    Smiley's Schooner Saloon

    41 Wharf San Rafael, CA 94903

  • Smuggler

    Smuggler's Cove

    650 Gough San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-869-1900 You don't need a treasure map to get to Smuggler's Cove, but you might feel like you're in The Goonies or Pirates of the Caribbean once you arrive: this Hayes Valley rum emporium is decorated with enough insta-kitsch pirate style to make you wonder if Captain Jack Sparrow were the interior designer. The specialty cocktail menu comes in leather-bound book form and the bar boasts a selection of over 200 rums, so it would take many return voyages to try them all; with specialty drink prices starting around $10, however, you'll need to bring a few extra gold doubloons as well. And even with its upper mezzanine level and a basement cave, Smuggler's Cove fills up fast, so be prepared to cut through crowds - a cutlass might come in handy on those cramped, steamy weekend nights, but allow a frosty, sweet tropical drink to calm your overheated buccaneer spirit instead.

  • Social Kitchen & Brewery

    Social Kitchen & Brewery

    1326 Ninth Ave. San Francisco, CA 94122
    415-681-0330 Social Kitchen has revolutionary aims. Not only is it determined to make the food beer-focused, and highlight sustainable and local ingredients, it hopes to attract women and vegetarians, who are often put off by traditional brewpubs. Talented brewmaster Rich Higgins likes to tweak expectations with his beers - brewing low-alcohol, food-friendly styles like his kölsch, which drinks like the cava of beers, as well as a peppery, none-too-sweet Belgian golden ale (l'Enfant Terrible), or Duvel dressed up for the Folsom Street Fair. Much of the food falls short of the beer, however. Reliable dishes include the tempura sweet-potato fries, the loco moco burger, and the duck breast with blackberries and a beer-reduction sauce.

  • Sofa

    139 8th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-558-8004 If you're looking for Sofa but can't seem to find it from the street, that's because this small cocktail watering hole and posh DJ mini-lounge is a bit sneaky -- it's semi-hidden in the basement of SOMA Brazilian restaurant Bossa Nova.

  • Solano Cellars

    1580 Solano Ave. Albany, CA 94707

  • Soluna Café & Lounge

    Soluna Café & Lounge

    272 McAllister San Francisco, CA 94102

  • Somar


    1727 Telegraph Oakland, CA 94612

  • South End Grill

    South End Grill 'n' Bar

    1499 Valencia San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-8623 The South End serves up casual American food (e.g., meaty entrees, burgers, fried appetizers) in a casual suburbanite environment, with a special mac 'n' cheese bar that allows you to doll up this typically run-of-the-mill pasta dish with items like crab, bacon, minced beef, and more. For post-meal tippling, the bar menu is limited to beer and wine (standard microbrews, no liquor). The South End also closes before midnight, even on weekends, so you'll find no nighthawks at this particular diner. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Southern Pacific Brewing

    620 Treat Ave. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-891-9775 Large and airy, the Southern Pacific's warehouse-like taproom is a comfy and bright space in which to try their microbrew selections (plus a few guest beers as well). Don't just fill up on stouts and porters, though -- there's also a food menu full of hearty grub to complement the brew. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Southside Spirit House

    575 Howard St. San Francisco, CA 94105

  • Space 550

    Space 550

    550 Barneveld San Francisco, CA 94124
    415-550-8286 Uses for this 15,000-square-foot venue, with its multiple levels of dance floors and lounges, vary widely, from gay-centric house music sweat-downs to underground hip-hop DJ contests and breakbeat/drum 'n' bass nights. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Space Gallery

    Space Gallery

    1141 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-377-3325 The crowds at this Polk Gulch gallery and event venue - immediately recognizable by the jumble of neon letters that spell "SPACE" on the sign outside the building - often spill over into the boisterous Hemlock Tavern audience next door. Once inside the Space Gallery itself, you'll find people distributed equally across the building's two small floors, with a downstairs bar where cocktails are served to chatting hipsters and art connoisseurs, plus an upstairs display area where DJs spin eclectic dance tunes. The calendar changes frequently, so check the website for a widely varied schedule of graffiti showcases, poster exhibitions, poetry/spoken word nights, experimental film screenings, and more. One caveat: Due to the on-premise alcohol sales, the Space Gallery is limited to art lovers over 21 years of age. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Specs Twelve Adler Museum Cafe

    Specs Twelve Adler Museum Cafe

    12 William Saroyan Place San Francisco, CA 94133-4400

    Less trafficked by tourists than Vesuvio's across the street - but just as cluttered - Specs' bar does indeed feel like a museum, with years of collected trinkets and tchotchkes covering every surface. If the mood strikes, sometimes bohemian old-timers will quietly prop themselves at the piano and plunk out a few instrumental tunes to add subliminal music to the constant hum of conversation.

  • Steep Brew

    450 Rhode Island St. San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Stork Club

    Stork Club

    2330 Telegraph Oakland, CA 94612
    510-444-6174 The Stork Club is downtown Oakland's best destination for underground punk & metal bands, cheap drinks, and a shockingly large collection of still-packaged Barbie dolls. (Didn't expect that last one, did you?) There are no signs of gentrification trends here: the Stork remains a dive bar and proud of it. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Straits Cafe Singapore Restaurant

    Straits Cafe Singapore Restaurant

    845 Market San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-668-1783 You're thinking: "A lounge inside a mall? Cheesy!" Not so with Straits, a Singaporean restaurant located in the posh wing of Westfield San Francisco Centre. Once inside, the warm apricot and chartreuse hues juxtaposing the industrial-chic concrete pull you out of that bad mall lighting. The mall-facing window is dressed up with lavish curtains that circle a more private seating area, dimly lit by paper lamps and embellished with a painting of the Buddha, whose shifty eyes keep tabs on the patrons. The cocktails, some of which are half-priced during the daily happy hour, take cues from Eastern flavors, most notably a whiskey and green tea concoction in which any bite and peat from the whiskey is tempered by the tea's neutral flavor and the caffeine has a sort of Red Bull effect to send you on your merry way for tipsy shopping.
