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 Pub at Ghirardelli Square

    The Pub at Ghirardelli Square

    851 Beach San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-351-0500 Dark wood and deep reds set the visual tone inside this touristy-but-classy bar and restaurant in Ghirardelli Square - although you may never notice, since the views of San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park across the street may occupy your eyeballs more than the interior decor. The menu features hearty American food with a distinct New Orleans flair (e.g., spicy jambalaya, Cajun-style fish and chips, Southern fried chicken), while a full bar and solid selection of draft microbrews offer liquid refreshment.

  • The Regency Ballroom

    The Regency Ballroom

    1290 Sutter San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-673-5716 The elegant old Scottish Rite building that boasts "three separate venues" is primarily known for its Grand Ballroom, a balconied and beautiful (if not acoustically perfect) rococo room that was famous in the 1960s as the Avalon Ballroom, a hippie hotspot for iconic psychedelic groups like the Grateful Dead and Captain Beefheart. Today it hosts everything from rock bands to raves and gala celebrations. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rouge


    1500 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-346-7683 The weekend parties at this crimson-walled nightclub (hence the name) cater to the upper crust of Marina/Russian Hill party people, who are probably more interested in being seen than deep listening. The DJs on the decks bring a wide selection of dance-floor faves -- from Top 40 and funky house to hip-hop and neo-soul. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Royal Oak

    Royal Oak

    2201 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109

    If your great-great-grandmother had been a tippler, she'd probably have felt right at home at the Royal Oak, where antique sofas, stained glass lamps, and gilt-framed mirrors set the scene -- only the deep, shadowy darkness separates the Royal Oak from a fancy old Victorian parlor. Though the door to enter this Russian Hill bar might be mere feet from Bullitt's shiny newness, the Royal Oak feels like it exists in an entirely different universe. The taps feature a rotating array of thoroughly modern microbrews, however, so you don't need to feel limited to gimlets or other cocktails from a bygone era.

  • Shanghai Kelly

    Shanghai Kelly's

    2064 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-771-3300 The cooler labeled "spare livers" above the bar is indicative of the workouts livers get here. Russian Hill bros outnumber gals ten-to-one. There's so much male bonding going on that the din drowns out the sportscasters from the three screens set to various sports channels. The kitschy decor (photos of Gilligan and his island hotties, a man mooning sheep in New Zealand, etc.) offers plenty of visual stimuli for those who attempt to try all of the house-made cocktails (many of which are liquor + lemonade).

  • Space Gallery

    Space Gallery

    1141 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-377-3325 The crowds at this Polk Gulch gallery and event venue - immediately recognizable by the jumble of neon letters that spell "SPACE" on the sign outside the building - often spill over into the boisterous Hemlock Tavern audience next door. Once inside the Space Gallery itself, you'll find people distributed equally across the building's two small floors, with a downstairs bar where cocktails are served to chatting hipsters and art connoisseurs, plus an upstairs display area where DJs spin eclectic dance tunes. The calendar changes frequently, so check the website for a widely varied schedule of graffiti showcases, poster exhibitions, poetry/spoken word nights, experimental film screenings, and more. One caveat: Due to the on-premise alcohol sales, the Space Gallery is limited to art lovers over 21 years of age. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Tiernan

    Tiernan's Irish Pub

    685 Beach San Francisco, CA 94109

  • Tonic


    2360 Polk San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-771-5535 The first in a chain of semi-slick, semi-arty local bars owned by the same entrepreneurial team (see also: Bullitt, Rebel, Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem), Tonic is sunny, relaxed, and casual during its late afternoon opening hours, then gets crowded as the Russian Hill pub crawlers, gossip girls, and scammer lads file their way in. The walls feature rotating art displays (usually involving some sort of ironic pop-culture reference), while a mural depicting Rubenesque nudes in various states of S.F.-related debauchery keeps permanent watch over the semi-circular booth in the rear. If you tire of eyeing the well-dressed young things around the room, look up and check out the overhead fans - which look like ordinary desk fans that have spun themselves upside-down and sprouted an extra head - or ponder the foamy ceiling pads that spread across the ceiling in an inverted checkerboard pattern. Standard drink prices start in the $5-$6 range, and custom cocktails hover closer to $10, but happy hour deals (e.g., buy a straight shot and get a beer for free) provide more affordable options for those with tight budgets.

  • 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.

  • Wreck Room

    Wreck Room

    1390 California San Francisco, CA 94109
    415-932-6715 Graduation sucks, dude. The old campus party pad is off limits -- so now when you wanna down some brews, shoot hoops, and scope babes with your fave wingmen, you gotta hit the Wreck Room. With its plethora of games to either play (pool, shuffleboard, arcade basketball, and more) or watch (via one of the many flat-screen TVs), this new Nob Hill establishment is an upscale sports bar mixed with a gameroom mixed with a frat house. The beer and liquor selections skew fancy, but the chapeau of choice is a baseball cap. Heck, the bartender might even serve your drink with a "thanks, bro" and fist bump.
