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.

  • Rickshaw Stop

    Rickshaw Stop

    155 Fell San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-861-2011 Though the Rickshaw's unmarked facade makes it a little difficult to find, you'll receive ample rewards for the search. Some of the country's most progressive DJs and indie bands play in the club's friendly confines, which features a great sound system, upstairs mezzanine for added visibility, and frequent all-ages shows for the kids.

  • 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.

  • San Francisco Conservatory of Music

    50 Oak St. San Francisco, CA 94102-6011

  • SF Jazz Center

    201 Franklin St. San Francisco, CA 94102

  • 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.

  • Sugar Cafe

    Sugar Cafe

    679 Sutter San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-441-5678 Sugar Cafe is a rare breed. Is it a coffee shop, restaurant, bar, club, or laptop workstation? Yes to all the above - sort of. It opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 2 a.m. Before 5 p.m., one can enjoy a beer (many by the bottle, such as Red Stripe or Stella) or imported wines by the glass. After 5 p.m., it clicks into full bar mode and serves cocktails. Food is offered all day and ranges from house-made pastries to truffle fries and pomegranate-glazed lamb. The space features a long bar, ample seating with a few tables and plush modern couches, and a gas fireplace that always seems to be on, no matter what the time or temperature is. The crowd is pretty Academy of Art, as it's located in the middle of so-called dormitory alley. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Sugar Lounge

    Sugar Lounge

    377 Hayes San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-255-7144 As the name suggests, sugar and alcohol go hand in hand here at the Sugar Lounge. Young Hayes Valley locals line the bar as attractive bartenders vivaciously shake martinis and house specialties like the "Bees Knees," which is full of honey and Jameson. Beer is limited to bottles and the selection is conventional (e.g., Sierra Nevada), but the cult following is here to swoon over a happy hour that includes discounted drinks and free snacks like veggie tempura, chicken teriyaki, and chips from 5-7 p.m. weekdays. Other attractive traits: they accept credit cards without a minimum and the space has a cozy, warm vibe thanks to the sparkling candles, plush couches, and dark wood accents.

  • Two Sisters Bar & Books

    Two Sisters Bar & Books

    579 Hayes St. San Francisco, CA 94102
    917-628-5569 They might not yet know your name at Two Sisters Bar & Books, but the sliver of a bar/restaurant in Hayes Valley is the place to feel welcome. The gastropub space is narrow enough to touch with your fingertips if you stood in the middle and spread your arms wide. The wallpaper wouldn't be out of place in a San Francisco parlor circa 1910, or a smoky bar in Paris or Prague. The light is dim and the jumping jazz soundtrack gives the place a speakeasy vibe. One wall is taken up with a low bookcase from which patrons are encouraged to borrow books -- it's stocked with everything from the classics to the Hunger Games. Drinks are the primary focus -- try any of the varieties on the Manhattan, or just settle down with a local beer on tap -- but there is a short menu of small plates and snacks. Get the paper-thin house-made potato chips, which go well with a horseradish crème fraîche dip for a peppy take on a tired party go-to, or the perfectly satisfying, perfectly simple grilled cheese sandwich -- melted St. George cheddar cheese and garlic butter, grilled almost to the point of burning but saved just in time to achieve caramelization -- served with a sidecar of tomato soup in an oversized teacup.

  • Upcider


    1160 Polk St. San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-931-1797 First there were upscale wine bars. Now, thanks to Upcider, there's an upscale cider bar as well. This minimally decorated second-floor drinkery has long windows overlooking the crowds on Polk Street, while the menu features rare craft ciders you may not find at other bars. If a fancy fermented apple (or pear) beverage is what you crave, this is the place for you. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Urban Diversion Clubhouse

    1329 Columbus Ave. San Francisco, CA 94133-1303

  • Warfield Theatre

    Warfield Theatre

    982 Market San Francisco, CA 94102
    415-345-0900 The grande dame of San Francisco's old vaudeville scene, the Warfield has seen it all — from '30s Borscht Belt comedians to '60s hippies and whatever the 21st Century decides to offer. This two-tiered, magnificently ornate old theater is a jewel set in the center of the city's downtown crown, replete with glassy old chandeliers, gorgeous carved woodwork, and a large stage framed by heavy velvet curtains. The lobby also features dozens of iconic photos and concert posters, offering evidence of the wealth of musicians who have performed here over the years. As for the concert space itself, the most exciting action happens in the former orchestra pit section — which is now a general admission dance floor — while the best viewing options usually reside up in the reserved balcony seats.

  • Whiskey Thieves

    Whiskey Thieves

    839 Geary San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-409-2063 Not only is it the smallest bar in the Thieves mini-chain of local drinking establishments, but Whiskey Thieves also has the most character - a character that is entirely provided by, and dependent on, its titular selection of whiskey. From smoky single-malt Scotches and smooth Irish blends to heavy Kentucky bourbons and beyond, Whiskey Thieves loves to sling that sweet amber liquid in all its varieties. Prices are totally affordable (especially the rotating series of specials, which include a basic American beer back for about $7) and the bartenders are glad to let you sample a few tastes before choosing your final selection. Due to its downtown Tenderloin locale, however, the environment here is more young and hip than suave and cultured, so leave upscale pretensions at the door.

  • Wilson & Wilson

    Wilson & Wilson

    505 Jones San Francisco, CA 94102 Bourbon & Branch's new side project, a tiny speakeasy within a large speakeasy, is decorated in a 1930s gumshoe theme and requires online reservations and a password. Its bartenders have become cooks in their own right, brewing and infusing and stewing and concocting, taking ownership of the drink in ways we never imagined in the vodka-cran age. While the Wilson's cocktails can be ordered à la carte, the preferred mode is to consume them as a tasting menu - aperitif, "main," digestif - or a $40 punch for four, served in a silver teapot. You don't go to the Wilson for a drink. You go for a liquid dinner. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
