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.

  • 540 Club

    540 Club

    540 Clement San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-752-7276 Haute and hardcore at the same time, the 540 Club is a place where drinkers of many social classes can commingle comfortably: this Inner Richmond hangout often features punk rock on the stereo and custom low-brow art on the walls, while the vintage setting feels like a private men's club from the early 20th Century.

  • Abbey Tavern

    Abbey Tavern

    4100 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-221-7767 This Irish sports bar in the Inner Richmond features occasional live bands and DJs on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. A mixture of pop, rock, '80s, and Top 40 dance music caters to a mostly collegiate crowd. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Bitter End

    The Bitter End

    441 Clement San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-221-9538 All the trappings of a choice hole-in-the-wall in the 'hood: A jukebox that plays classic rock exclusively; some pool tables and dart boards and sports on the TVs; a dozen beers on draft ranging from mainstream British imports to mainstream craft beers and another dozen bottles most of the light variety; a full bar with mostly whiskeys and precious few pricy brands marketed by hip-hop moguls; and the only food worth ordering is the thick cut "chips" with malt vinegar to sop 'em up. The bar is spacious, and it's quiet enough that you can have a conversation with your friends without having to shout. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Buckshot Bar & Gameroom

    Buckshot Bar & Gameroom

    3848 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-831-8838 If it were a racetrack gambler, this ultracasual (read: picnic tables and taxidermy as indoor decor) Inner Richmond bar would put its money on the longshot horse. The Buckshot serves up cheap drinks, the music skews toward gutter rock 'n' roll, and the entertainment is strictly old-school: pool, shuffleboard, retro video-arcade bleepers, and Skee-Ball. If you're hungry, they've got totally great homemade food, too. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Family Billiards

    Family Billiards

    2807 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-931-1115 In the spectrum of pool hall possibilities, Family Billiards is neither a luxury emporium nor a low-down hangout, but it duly provides 18 well-maintained tables in an environment that favors base functionality over fanciness or style. The warehouse-like space gives you what you need (e.g., clean playing surfaces, crisp lighting, cold beer) and, well, that's about it. But the prices are certainly right: the 4-7 p.m. daily happy hour offers all drafts (including Guinness and Stella Artois) for a mere $2.50, and ladies play free with paying partner on Sunday afternoons. For nocturnal gaming, Family stays open until 2 a.m. every night - and all the way until 4 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays - if you think you can handle the crowds of kids kickin' it to Top 40 jams on the digital jukebox.

  • Fizzee


    3954 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-221-7300 A cursory initial glance might tell you there's little to distinguish Fizzee's from any other sports bar: there's a string of local boys bellied up to the beer taps, the games are on TV, two pool tables crouch in the back, and some pinball machines lurk around the corner, beeping and clacking in a vain attempt to be heard over the Eminem on the jukebox - but then you notice the large dune buggy that clings to the wall behind the bar. ("How'd they get that beast in here?," you'll wonder while ordering a heavily-poured drink from the gregarious bartender.) If it's a sunny afternoon, an orange glow suffuses the room as daylight spills through the large windows; at night, the boozy crowd watches passersby on Geary through the same glass while downing pitchers of brew. So, yes, Fizzee's is "just" a sports bar - but its friendly effervescence may be just what you need when seeking a cold pint. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Harry

    Harry's on Fillmore

    2020 Fillmore San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-921-1000 Harry Denton's posh Fillmore Street bar features occasional live DJs. The elegantly decorated bar draws a large crowd of young professionals. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Ireland

    Ireland's 32

    3920 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-386-6173 In addition to a fine beer selection, darts, pool, European sports on TV, and pub grub, this Inner Richmond home-away-from-home for many Irish expats (it promotes itself as a "pub with ties to the IRA/Sinn Fein") offers live music most nights, covering everything from punk to traditional Irish music to an open mic night.

  • Kama Lounge

    Kama Lounge

    3910 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118

    Kama Lounge, located directly next to Ireland's 32, has a smooth dancefloor where the strobe lights are rollin', the DJs are spinnin', and the karaoke is happenin'. Private karaoke booths line the walls while brocade booths and the dancefloor take up the center of the lounge. Expect to hear R&B, hip-hop, and dance tracks when the DJs spin, and karaoke in a variety of languages from a predominantly Asian clientele. Glowing custom-built shelves are lined with color-changing LEDs that turn the liquor bottles behind the bar a rainbow of hues. There's a good selection of liquor, but beer only comes in bottles.

  • Neck of the Woods

    Neck of the Woods

    406 Clement San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-387-6343 The Richmond District's only real rock club, which was previously known as the Rockit Room, Neck of the Woods also features hip-hop, reggae, funk, comedy, and other events depending on the day. The "après-ski" vibe feels a little odd considering the foggy neighborhood, but if you live in northwest S.F. and want to catch amplified live music in a club setting, this is probably where to look first.

  • Neck of the Woods

    Neck of the Woods

    406 Clement San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-387-6343 This long-running live music space on Clement Street -- once famously known as the Last Day Saloon and, most recently, as the Rockit Room -- now has a new identity: Neck of the Woods. Expect its two stages on two separate floors to keep bringing you an eclectic variety of rock, reggae, hip-hop, funk, salsa, comedy, and other events.

  • The Pig and Whistle

    The Pig and Whistle

    2801 Geary San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-885-4779 Outfitted in bric-a-brac, the Pig and Whistle's ornaments embody the cozy character of a traditional pub. Brass trinkets, old spoons, and metalwork are sprinkled around the main room. Down the hallway that leads to the pool table, the walls are adorned with framed vintage maps and found photos. Serving up breaded, battered, and buttered pub grub such as bangers and mash, fish and chips, pasties, and shepherd's pie alongside European lagers and ales, the Pig and Whistle aims to keep you seated for some time with a full stomach. Always a pretty social place, it gets packed on Wednesday and Sunday evenings for the pub quiz. The crowd is predominantly college students, but it's not a rowdy or rude bunch. In the main room, you can tinker around on the jukebox, play trivia, or shoot darts; in the back room, you can play pinball. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Plough & Stars

    Plough & Stars

    116 Clement San Francisco, CA 94118
    415-751-1122 Throwing back pints to a live soundtrack of traditional jigs and reels gives this Richmond watering hole a notably authentic Irish feel. Though P&S occasionally opens the stage to folk acts, the Emerald Isle crooners are the real treat -- whether offering tear-in-your-beer ballads or pint-swinging sing-alongs. Thursdays evenings offer set dancing to local ceili bands, while open sessions on Sundays and Tuesdays provide a chance for aspiring Celtic pickers to join in for a quick play-along.
