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.

  • 440 Castro

    440 Castro

    440 Castro San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-621-8732 It's a leather/bear/rough-trade kind of place for the older and manly kind of gay - one of the last standing relics of the Castro's bygone days. Its Thursday weekly "CDXL," however, has the too-cool kids tearing the place apart to mash-up and disco beats. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Beaux

    2344 Market San Francisco, CA 94114

  • Blackbird


    2124 Market San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-503-0630 It's easy to be hip at Blackbird. The indie rock is never too loud and the seasonally rotating cocktail menu can satisfy even the most obnoxious booze snob. With an extensive list of beers, a photo booth, and non-cheesy leather seats, you'd expect this bar to attract a pretentious set, but its Castro location keeps it mellow. Bar-goers from all points on the sexual spectrum down concoctions like the Blackbird Negroni - Blue Coat gin, Apersol, and Lillet Rouge - or a classic Pimm's Cup - Pimm's, Gin, cucumber, fresh strawberry, and ginger ale. The sass-free bartenders will briefly answer your questions about what goes in them. The joint is cash only to keep the service moving fast, but even the most decadent, wood-barrel aged cocktails will only set you back $10. For those who dare request swill in the face of a well-crafted menu, PBR and Tecate are on the menu, and since the staff is friendly, people will only silently judge you.

  • Blush! Wine Bar

    Blush! Wine Bar

    476 Castro San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-558-0893 Across from the Castro Theatre, Blush! is a cozy pre-movie place to grab a drink. With jazz nights on Thursdays and subtle background music other nights, this bar is a low-key Castro option. A plush couch propped against the burgundy, art-adorned wall offers a cozy seat for intimate groups, while a long, wooden table towards the back accommodates a larger group of ten. Featuring a comprehensive list of nearly 100 wines stored in proper wooden racks, Blush! serves the amateur and oenophile alike, where $70-$80 can fetch you a bottle of a crisp and fruity white or an earthy six-year-old Bordeaux, or $6 can get a more temperate-flavored but generous pour. The food portion of the menu boasts rich and rustic European small plates, cheese and savory charcuterie platters, and nibbles such as Kalamata olives and tapenade.

  • Cafe Du Nord

    Cafe Du Nord

    2170 Market San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-861-5016 Descend into this subterranean nightspot and you'll find yourself in an intimate hideaway where good food and drink, a roomy dancefloor, and a wide and eclectic entertainment lineup keep the customers partying into the wee hours. Built in 1907, the former speakeasy's deep red walls, classic paneling and wainscoting, and 40-foot hand-carved mahogany bar make you feel you're in a vintage Left Bank bordello. A brief menu of salads, burgers, pizzas, and bar food complements the cocktails nicely. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Cafe Flore

    Cafe Flore

    2298 Market San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-621-8579 What was once the place to be seen in the 1970s Castro is now the most charming little cafe. With vaulted ceilings, lots of light, and a crowded patio, Cafe Flore packs them in day and night. And with its newly acquired entertainment and liquor licenses, it just keeps getting better with live DJs and harder booze. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Cafe

    The Cafe

    2369 Market San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-621-4434 This long-running gay dance hotspot recently reopened after major renovations. Old event faves like Boy Bar, ¡Pan Dulce!, and Delicious are back as well. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Caskhouse

  • Castro Country Club

    4058 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114

  • Churchill


    198 Church San Francisco, CA 94114 Winston Churchill famously took more from alcohol than it took from him. You can try to do the same at this namesake bar that's decorated like a fancy WWII bomb shelter -- artificially battered lamps, heavy ropes suspended from the ceiling, concrete floor, etcetera (though can someone please tell us why they have an American flag on the wall?) -- with a crowd that tends to be as trendy as the interior design.

  • The Dubliner

    The Dubliner

    3838 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-826-2279 With 14 TVs, there are enough screens here to show every NFL game on a Sunday morning, plus bowling and NASCAR. It's a comfortable, unpretentious pub where you can knock back an Irish Car Bomb with a chatty bartender -- many of them have legit Irish lilts or English accents. If chugging a Guinness, Jameson, and Baileys concoction doesn't appeal, order beers in pint, pitcher, or gallon sizes. The Dubliner also serves Magners Irish cider. Early in the week is quieter, but an all-day happy hour on Wednesdays draws people in for $3 drafts and glasses of wine. They don't serve food, but feel free to order delivery from nearby restaurants. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Edge

    The Edge

    4149 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-863-4027 Living life on the Edge, in this case, means paying a visit to this dark dive in the Castro. The tiny corner bar is close to the Castro Theatre, so it's great for a pre- or post-movie drink. Happy hour starts at noon and runs till 7 p.m., but the place is cash only, so make sure your wallet is full to take advantage of the specials: Sundays are all about $3 Bloody Marys to aid hangovers, Mai Tai Mondays offer up the strong and sweet concoctions for $4, and on Tuesday they sell PBR cans for $1. Planets hang from a cosmos-themed ceiling, the bartenders are friendly, and the music is random but enjoyable. A quiet, sparsely populated space early in the week, the Edge is packed from hump day on, especially on Fridays, when the self-explanatory "Strong Drinks, Low Lights, Men" sets off the weekend. Be warned: there is only one bathroom. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Eros

  • EZ5


    682 Commercial San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-362-9321 Weekend DJs spinning house, hip-hop, and whatever's in between turn this mellow lounge on the edge of Chinatown into a rump-shakin' late night party. On weeknights, the DJ is replaced by a KJ for all those karaoke fiends who need to get their fix on the microphone. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Harvey


    500 Castro San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-431-4278 Friendly Castro District cafe, bar, and restaurant named after a certain Mr. Milk. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Hi Tops

    2247 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-551-2500 In any other city, a gay sports bar might seem like a contradiction in terms – but here in the heart of the Castro District, Hi Tops fits right alongside the gyms and fitness shops that cater to the buff local boys. A kitchen serving fancified versions of classic sports bar grub is also open until 10 p.m. if you want a grilled cheese to go with your ballgame. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Last Call Bar

    Last Call Bar

    3988 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-861-1310 If you can't stay out late enough to hear the actual last call at the Last Call, then consider dropping into this unpretentious Castro neighborhood gay bar during daylight hours — they proudly offer happy hour everyday between noon and 7 p.m. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Lookout


    3600 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-703-9751 The elevated location, long windows, and outdoor balcony give this Castro bar its name, where queers nosh on pizza and dance to DJed music while keeping an eye open for people to meet. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Lucky 13

    Lucky 13

    2140 Market San Francisco, CA 94114

    Punk, country, rockabilly, and heavy metal classics blare from the jukebox of this Castro-adjacent dive that increasingly stands out amidst the shiny new bars and restaurants in its neighborhood. Hopefully the Lucky 13 - with its loooong bar, dark tables, and kitsch-filled recesses - won't succumb to the fancifying trends anytime soon ... although even upscale newcomers can appreciate the Lucky 13's impressively large microbrew selection and popular happy hour.

  • Magnet

  • Midnight Sun

    Midnight Sun

    4067 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-861-4186 After 35-plus years in business, this video bar is a mainstay of the Castro gay scene. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Moby Dick

    Moby Dick

    4049 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94114
    415-861-1199 For lack of a more creative word, this place is fun. At this video bar, the VJs screen the homo favorites (Britney, Beyonce, etc.), but also throw in some rarities and lesser-known alternavideos, too, to the delight of patrons. Pinball machines and a pool table in the back also invite you to have a good time. Even when its seams are bursting on the weekends, Moby Dick's still manages to be the least annoying bar in the Castro that the locals (both young and old) seem to love. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Noe

    Noe's Bar

    1199 Church San Francisco, CA 94114

    Lots of wood everywhere -- the floor, the bar, the furniture, and more -- gives this comfy Noe Valley tavern a homey feel. The crowd is primarily made up of neighborhood locals, who drop by to grab a pint and watch the game in an environment that's clean but casual. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
