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.

  • Kilowatt


    3166 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-861-2595 Browsing the old show flyers and photos on the wall of this Mission bar may make you nostalgic for the days when raucous garage bands played on the corner stage - nowadays the Kilowatt is just a regular suds joint, sans live music, but it's a pretty fun one nonetheless. Multiple pool tables, a jukebox stocked with loud old-school rawk, and good happy hour deals on beer make the Kilowatt a fine spot to waste some casual drinking hours on 16th Street.

  • The Knockout

    The Knockout

    3223 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-550-6994 The Knockout has been called a clubhouse for big kids, and that's a pretty apt description. Started by brothers and longtime Mission District bartenders dX and John Segura, the place just bleeds their love for kitsch, rockabilly, monster movies, and low-brow culture. On any given night, there might be a touring mod band tearing up the stage, or a DJ spinning metal or old funk 45s, or a drunken, raucous game of bingo going down. There's a photo booth, a few tabletop videogames, and walls covered with dX's distinctive paintings and poster art. Look for the hip kids out front, plenty of tattoos inside, and John serving up an overflowing shot glass of Jim Beam on the planks. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Laszlo


    2532 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-7000 Foreign Cinema's little cousin features DJs in a posh setting. Although it stands out like a sore raised pinkie in its coarse Mission Street surroundings, it's a nice change of pace in an area laced with dive bars. Lively locals spin dance music and party jams (though there's no dance floor), and an air of class makes it worthwhile as more than a convenient post-meal move.

  • Latin American Club

    Latin American Club

    3286 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-647-2732 What you must know: they pour heavy. The margaritas are potent, poured into a pint glass with more than three-fourths real agave tequila. Braving your way through the first sips, you look up at the sign above the entrance that reads "sin" in red, lit-up letters behind chicken wire. The sign outside is a bit misleading: reclaimed found art, it sat in the basement of the Latin American Club owner's house until he opened up shop more than 17 years ago. But there is no salsa, no samba, no rumba, no cha-cha-cha. There are, however, piñatas - plenty of them, buoying overhead like parade floats. Salvaging trashed items, the owner has decorated the bar in the wacky and the tacky thrift-store tchotchkes and junkyard scraps, spattered about like flotsam. Above the till, a plate memorializing a regular, "The Red Man," perches. With his red suit, John Waters mustache, fedora, and crazy-eyed gawk, he seems to watch over the checkered floors.

  • Lexington Club

    Lexington Club

    3464 19th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-863-2052 Cozy lesbian bar tucked into a Mission sidestreet. It's a bar, with lesbians - what more do you need to know? Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Little Baobab

    Little Baobab

    3388 19th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-643-3558 An offshoot of Bissap Baobab, the rollicking Senegalese restaurant right around the corner on mission St., Little Baobab is more of a club than an eatery--well-known for its reggae and afro-pop dance nights. The menu is similar to the larger restaurant's--festive, shareable Senegalese and Pan-African appetizers and entrees, like shrimp marinated in cloves, chilis, and garlic, tropical salads, and lamb in peanut sauce. The cocktails are unique here; try the Flamboyant (hibiscus, lime, and vodka) or the Salaan (a tamarind-based margarita). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Local Edition

    691 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-795-1975 Stop the presses! If you ever dreamed of being a hard-nosed (and hard-drinking) newspaper editor from the mid-20th century, then this journo-themed bar on Market Street might be the place for you. Just remember that a few strong cocktails won't transform you from Clark Kent into Superman. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Lolinda

    2522 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94110

  • Lone Palm

    Lone Palm

    3394 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-648-0109 Walking through the swinging door at Lone Palm is like stumbling into some colonial desert oasis. White linens cover the tables. Flickering tea lights set the mood. Wood mermaids and palm tree plaques add just the right amount of kitsch. A lone bartender methodically pours and mixes drinks, while patrons sip cocktails and munch on proffered peanuts and Goldfish. How crowded the place will be is anyone's guess, so if it's quiet, settle in for intimate conversation; if it's busy, get ready for hobnobbin' and fun. Happy hour is seven nights a week from 4-6 p.m., with a dollar off all liquor, $3 bottled beer, and an extra discount on house's choice of higher-end liquor like flavored Stoli or Ketel One.

  • The Lucky Horseshoe

    The Lucky Horseshoe

    453 Cortland San Francisco, CA 94110 This longtime Bernal Heights neighborhood bar -- previously known as Skip's Tavern (R.I.P.) -- is currently in the middle of the sure-to-be-ongoing process of becoming the Lucky Horseshoe. The interior has been mostly cleared of Skip's riotous beer paraphernalia and candid Polaroid snapshots, and the lighting scheme has been darkened considerably, but the van-worthy front mural is brighter than ever, the resolutely unfancy faux-wood paneling remains, and 49ers memorabilia has begun to reclaim its rightful place on the walls. What about live music, you ask? If we were a Magic 8-Ball, our answer would be: Reply hazy, try again later. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Make-Out Room

    Make-Out Room

    3225 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-647-2888 It feels almost like a bingo parlor at the community church. Fortunately, the quirky Midwestern atmosphere of this bar lends itself to the mostly folk and country acts that perform here. Regular DJ nights also expand the soundtrack to include everything from Latin funk and Jamaican ska to New Wave and indie dance hits. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

    Make-Out Room

    3225 22nd St. San Francisco, CA 94110-3006

  • Mission Bar

    Mission Bar

    2695 Mission San Francisco, CA 94110

    "Bar-Bar," as the locals call it, is both neighborhood dive bar and destination hip spot. But don't expect to see sawdust on the floor. Large, supper club-style semi-circle booths and wide, comfortable barstools give this joint class. Most regulars seem to prefer their beer served in the can, although there's a healthy selection of drafts available on tap and the well drinks are often stiff. Remember to pump a few tunes through the eclectic jukebox (Pixies, Aerosmith, and Hank Williams in just a few flips!) and shoot a few rounds of pool in the back. Come back often enough and the bartender might start calling you by name. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • MKT Restaurant – Bar

    757 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94103

    Located within the Four Seasons Hotel between Third St. and Fourth St. in downtown San Francisco. Their focus is on high-quality, local cocktails, of which all of the ingredients for the signature cocktails were sourced from within 100 miles of San Francisco. They also serve small plates and steaks. The place is intended for groups, with punch served in vintage bowl sets and small plates for sharing. Great for a night out or stop after work with friends.

  • The Monk

    The Monk's Kettle

    3141 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-865-9523 Very few things justify a three-hour wait, but that's the average Sunday night at Monk's Kettle, which gives you a sense of the place's popularity. Yes, this Mission ale-haven is crowded, but not so loud that you can't have a decent conversation without shouting. The menu is heavy reading with descriptions of more than 100 beers in the bottle, 24 on tap, and rare vintage beers in the cellar. Even not-so-rare domestic beers go by a clever moniker: when ordering Grandpa's Suds, do not be surprised to receive Olympia in a can. Chef Kevin Kroger crafts comforting California-style cuisine using whatever's in season. The menu changes often, but you can always find Jude's vegan chili, a soft pretzel with an ale-infused cheese sauce, and a hearty grass-fed beefburger. Be sure to try the recommended beers paired with each edible item. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mosto

    741 Valencia St. San Francisco, CA 94110

  • The Napper Tandy

    The Napper Tandy

    3200 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-550-7510 At the Napper Tandy, cold drafts pair perfectly with greasy Irish breakfasts, chicken soup with soda bread, and light, puffy onion rings that practically levitate off the plate. Soccer and baseball games flicker across the circle of televisions strung around the bar. The regulars shoot pool in the back, crack jokes with the friendly servers, and let their dogs tear around the premises. Given the slightly cracked atmosphere, the pub offerings, particularly the revolving brunch specials, are better than you might expect. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • OMG

    43 Sixth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-896-6374 The long-shuttered space where Anu used to live - with its long bar, scalloped ceiling, and small dance floor in the rear - has now been revived as Club OMG. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Phoenix Bar & Irish Gathering House

    The Phoenix Bar & Irish Gathering House

    811 Valencia San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-695-1811 The Phoenix's fiery red neon sign (inspired by its name, no doubt) might not scream "Irish pub" to you, but the dark wood interior, Guinness and Harp on draft, and Hibernian menu help clarify this Mission bar's cultural origins. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Phone Booth

    Phone Booth

    1398 S. Van Ness San Francisco, CA 94110

    Hipsterphobes may wish to avoid the Phone Booth, a kitschy li'l Mission dive bar that attracts a young crowd sporting the latest anti-fashions. But if you can overlook the indie posturing, you will be well rewarded by the pool table, a jukebox full of post-punk gems, and bartenders that serve cheap, stiff drinks in a setting that feels like a thrift store with liquor. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Pisco Latin Lounge

    Pisco Latin Lounge

    1817 Market San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-874-9951 In mid-19th-century San Francisco, a new drink called Pisco Punch took the town by storm. This Peruvian brandy-infused cocktail inspired the Pisco Latin Lounge in Hayes Valley. It offers an updated take on the recipe (Peruvian vinas de oro, macerated pineapple, and pineapple gomme) as well as a delicious variety of pisco sours and mojitos. Sit at the long walnut bar or at a table, enjoy the colorfully lit, modern decor, and sample some small Latin American-influenced plates like empanadas, plantain chips, and sliders.

  • Pop

    Pop's Bar

    2800 24th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-401-7677 A quintessential Mission dive bar that attracts a mix of skatepunks, bike hipsters, and anyone seeking cheap drinks, lowbrow decor, and loud music (via either DJ or jukebox). The vibe is kitschy and the floors are sticky. The beers are cold and the crowd is cool. There's a vintage arcade game in the front and a pool table in back. Any questions?

  • Project Artaud

    499 Alabama St. San Francisco, CA 94110-1380

  • Public Works

    Public Works

    161 Erie San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-932-0955 Tucked into an alley at the northern edge of the Mission District -- look for a Banksy stencil and a bunch of other great street-art murals on the outside wall -- Public Works is a multi-use space that hosts art shows, DJ dance events, live music, and more on its two floors. It's become one of the city's hippest hangouts in only a short period of time, attracting diverse crowds that include queer party fanatics, electro-house hipsters, exploratory foodies, gallery crawlers, and other San Franciscans looking for the latest in artsy underground entertainment.
