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.

  • The Valley Tavern

    The Valley Tavern

    4054 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-285-0674 A woodsy little patio hidden behind the bar is a decided bonus at this Noe Valley drinking spot, which otherwise serves up standard sports bar offerings (e.g., two pool tables, lots of televisions, digital jukebox, etc.) in a setting that's a skosh fancier than your average football fan's party room. The 20 or so beer taps are usually divided among domestic and international brews, ranging from the lightweight (Pabst) to the heavy (Guinness), with a broad-minded variety in between.

  • Venue

    420 14th St. Oakland, CA 94612

  • Verdi Club

    Verdi Club

    2424 Mariposa San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-861-5048 Lace up your wingtips: The Verdi has survived the rise and fall of the swing fad to endure as one of the city's premier venues for live and DJed big-band dancing. Monday nights are for swing, and Thursday nights remain a favorite for tango aficionados; dinner dances take place once a month. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Vertigo


    1160 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109

    It's tough to get a bead on Vertigo's musical selections: the DJs at the ornate but unpretentious Polk Street watering hole might spin anything from Patsy Cline to DJ Shadow. Late in the evening the beats get louder, and the mixed crowd -- tourists and locals alike -- takes to the floor, enjoying grooving to pop rock, R&B, and Top 40 from the past 30 years.

  • Vessel


    85 Campton San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-433-8585 As you cross the velvet ropes and make your way inside, the rosewater aromatherapy sets the luxurious tone. If the atmosphere doesn't take you away, the drinks certainly will. Have the bartender whip up a champagne cocktail with St. German and a splash of gin for starters. Follow with their blueberry "lemonade" for something mellow and sweet or a mango cocktail for tartness. Vessel also doubles as an art gallery, hosting solo shows for emerging and established artists. Each show has an opening reception with a DJ, happy hour drink specials, free Mission Minis Cupcakes, and free entry. And when it's not acting as a gallery, Vessel serves up DJ nights such as "Base" on Thursdays, which pumps house music for the club's high-end clientele. One warning for the more timid patrons: the bathroom is a unisex situation. But it is kept and tidy, and after a few of those cocktails, you might shed some inhibitions.

  • Vesuvio Cafe

    Vesuvio Cafe

    255 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-362-3370 You won't find too many poets holding forth at this legendary Beat Generation hangout - it's mostly just tourists nowadays - but Vesuvio still has artsy charm, history, and charisma in spades. The walls are packed with old paintings and pictures, there are plenty of angular nooks in which to sit, and there's nary a whiff of modern slickness anywhere. Stay in the downstairs bar area if you desire crowded bustle and action, but head upstairs to the balcony if you prefer conversation and/or want to read that paperback you just bought at City Lights bookstore next door. The ghosts of Kerouac, Ginsberg, Micheline, and the rest of the Beats will smile down from on high while you sip and socialize. Even if no one delivers poetic orations here anymore, the Beats' indomitable artistic spirit still lives within Vesuvio's walls. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Vice Ultra Lounge

    1251 Arroyo Walnut Creek, CA 94596

  • Victory Hall & Parlor

    360 Ritch San Francisco, CA 94107

  • Vieni Vieni Lucky Spot

    1431 Stockton St. San Francisco, CA 94133-3817

    Some websites describe this as a Russian Hill bar, but don't be fooled -- Vieni Vieni is a straight-up Chinatown dive. On weekends, its proximity to Columbus and Green Street can make it popular with North Beach partiers, however, so you should always be prepared for large crowds in a small space.

  • The View

    55 4th St. San Francisco, CA 94103-3156
    415-896-1600 Huge, arching, floor-to-ceiling windows give this cocktail spot at the top of the Marriott its name. It is definitely hard to beat the sights from this skyscaper vantage point -- though you will have to pay a little extra for the privilege. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Vinyl Room

    221 Park Burlingame, CA 94010

  • Vinyl Wine Bar

    359 Divisadero San Francisco, CA 94117
    415-621-4132 During the day, Vinyl Wine Bar operates as Cafe Divis, with Blue Bottle Coffee and panini; at night, Mark Bright and Kris Esqueda take over, sliding gauzy black curtains in front of the espresso machines and installing a bartender. It's a comfortable, pretense-free gathering point with walls painted the blue of a Jacques Cousteau documentary and chairs that could have been stolen from a dorm room lounge. Vinyl simultaneously compensates for the lack of a full kitchen and hits the indie demographic -- the kind of audiences that the wine industry itches to court -- with a rotating schedule of food trucks, beer and wine tasting events, and pizza and pasta nights. The rapidly changing schedule is posted at Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
