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.

  • 15 Romolo

    15 Romolo

    15 Romolo Place San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-398-1359 Aaron Smith's rejiggered 15 Romolo has developed magnetic powers, attracting even those who'd rather avoid the North Beach crowds. The dim bar hits the perfect balance of Barbary Coast and design boutique, flavored with a few drops of rockabilly dive. The bartenders switch up their featured drinks frequently, so it's hard to know if a concoction that's there one week will be there the next. The mixologists have been known to get inspired by a root or berry from the morning farmers' market, so prepare yourself for something fresh and creative. The Spaghetti Western, for instance, combines American rye and Campari with organic tomatoes and a splash of pilsner. If you're hungry, try the Dirty South Burger, which features ground beef in a bun, topped with barbecued pulled pork. It's served slider-size to help you exercise portion control. Believe us, you'll be glad. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Amante


    570 Green San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-362-4400 Rat Pack-style cocktail lounge in the center of the North Beach strip -- order a double martini and tell 'em Dino sent ya -- with occasional torch singers and other live music performances. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Atmosphere


    447 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-788-4623 Atmosphere is a glossy lounge built to accommodate just about every party need. The split-level, three-room space includes a small dance floor, large dance floor, two full bars, a waterfall wall, giant aquarium, modern furnishings, and a raised DJ booth. The bar menu pushes Hennessy and, once the crowd is in full effect, bottle-service servers cruise through. Long lines outside prove Atmosphere comes with a following, including routine limo drop-offs. Hip-hop is the favored music here and they play it loud. But should you need to have a conversation, you can duck into the side lounge, which is quieter. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Bamboo Hut

    Bamboo Hut

    479 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-989-8555 Full-on tropical decor and a full-on complement of tropical drinks make the Bamboo Hut a top-notch tiki bar. The Mai Tais flow on karaoke Wednesdays, but you'll have to pay $5 on Fridays and Saturdays to swing to the eclectic DJs. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Bimbo

    Bimbo's 365 Club

    1025 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-474-0365 Great sound, classy lighting, and staffers dressed like The Love Boat's Capt. Stubing come together to make this one of the city's finer concert halls. Bimbo's 365 Club is a shrine of mid-20th Century luxury, complete with multiple ornate bars and nudie oil paintings that would be the pride of any erstwhile Rat Pack member. The music programming ranges from international jazz to indie rock, plus the occasional retro dance band to confirm that Bimbo's is the perfect place for anyone who wants to know what it was like to party in the past.

  • The Boardroom

    The Boardroom

    1609 Powell San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-982-8898 Putting the beach back in North Beach, there's a laid-back surfer vibe here, with boards all over the room (get it?) and wave photos aplenty on the walls. The Boardroom offers cheap drinks with a beer and booze selection that's varied enough to have something for everyone, yet not so comprehensive as to be pretentious. There are lots of pub grub options, many including bacon, such as bacon-wrapped tots. This mellow neighborhood sports bar is just what the neighbors in usually frenzied North Beach ordered.

  • Bow Bow Cocktail Lounge

    Bow Bow Cocktail Lounge

    1155 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133

    Karaoke! Do you love it? You'd better, because Bow Bow's miniscule dimensions mean you'll never be more than a few feet away from the crooner with the microphone. Depending on who's signed up to sing, this tiny, much-mirrored Chinatown bar might be filled with sound of Top 40 hits from yesteryear or the popular Shanghai ballads of today. Grab a barstool - if you can find one free - and "warm up" your vocal cords with a cocktail. Then grab that mic and become the megastar you were born to be - in front of a massive crowd of 15 people.

  • Broadway Studios

    435 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-291-0333 When the curtain rises at this historic North Beach venue, you never know what you'll get -- it could be anything from bristling punk to brassy swing. Though the club's reputation comes mostly from Lindy-Hopping holdovers of the swing boom who populate the regular dance classes, there is a little of everything.

  • Bubble Lounge

    Bubble Lounge

    714 Montgomery San Francisco, CA 94111
    415-434-4204 San Francisco's premier champagne house complements its exhaustive menu of bubbly with appetizers and weekend DJs. The overall vibe is loungey and often full of women in their favorite little black dresses. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Buddha Lounge

    Buddha Lounge

    901 Grant San Francisco, CA 94108

    The bright neon sign and stylized door frame draw you into this convenient Chinatown drinkery located right on the main Grant Street drag. With just the right amount of style and a CD jukebox featuring a tasteful variety of music - ranging from mainstream pop to indie rock - it's certainly worth dropping in if you're feeling thirsty in the neighborhood. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Chelsea Place

    Chelsea Place

    641 Bush St. San Francisco, CA 94108-3511

    With Tiffany-style stained glass lamps hanging above the bar, wall cabinets filled chock-a-block with photos and trophies, and a fake fireplace in the rear, the Chelsea Place could almost be someone's living room. It feels suitably lived-in, too, with just enough scruffiness that you'd have to try pretty hard to be underdressed, even though tony Nob Hill lies immediately outside the door. If you're the creative-minded type, using the basement bathrooms almost seems like an adventure -- one can easily imagine secret subterranean tunnels linking Chelsea Place to some nearby Chinatown dive, with any number of untold intrigues passing between the two. But for the most part this unassuming old bar plays a simple, modest role: the friend who's always there for an after-work drink before you head back to your actual home later.

  • Church Key

    Church Key

    1402 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133

    If you like beer, the Church Key has your number. The seven-page menu offers beers from a rotating selection of brews from around the world, including a number of strong IPAs. If you're not looking to drop big dollars on ale, every night has a different $2 offering. There's a pub quiz on Tuesday nights (try the pot pie while you're working out your trivia muscles) and on Wednesdays the bar offers a two-for-one sausage deal. It's a small bi-level space with limited seating, so you'll have to jockey for space on the red leather benches on the weekends. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Cigar Bar & Grill

    Cigar Bar & Grill

    850 Montgomery San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-398-0850 A swanky North Beach/Financial District bar that caters to lovers of a fine Cuban cigar as well as fine Cuban music, with Latin jazz and salsa bands playing every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Cobb

    Cobb's Comedy Club

    915 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-928-4320 Almost every big-name stand-up comedian you can think of has performed at this local institution. A great place to catch stars on the rise and established names. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Columbus Cafe

    Columbus Cafe

    562 Green San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-274-2599 The Columbus Cafe is North Beach in a nutshell: quaint and cozy when quiet, rowdy and frat-tastic when busy. There's a lot of history in this 75-year-old bar - whether admiring the antique pressed-tin ceiling or gazing at the vintage photographs on the walls, it's possible to feel the past lurking all around you - but you might not notice when post-collegiate kids crowd inside on weekends, crank Top 40 dance tunes on the digital jukebox, and shout loudly at sports on the flat-screen TVs. The daily happy hour offers a good way to sample the 26 beers on tap: buy any draft between 4-8 p.m. and you'll get a redeemable token for a free draft next round.

  • Comstock Saloon

    Comstock Saloon

    155 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-617-0071 The Barbary Coast re-created by the Comstock Saloon would have appeared to the denizens of the 19th-century vice district as a utopian fantasy. The saloon's booths are occupied by mixed groups, the bartenders have all their teeth, and the booze won't make you go blind. That doesn't make the romance it stages any less potent, because everything about the place is so beautifully realized. Jonny Raglin and Jeff Hollinger's take on classic cocktails such as Pisco Punches and South Sides is deft, and even defter is the way chef Carlo Espinas lightens and modernizes Victorian dishes - beans and salt pork, Hamburg steak, beef-shank and bone marrow pie - so they feel as contemporary as a well-made Manhattan.

  • The Condor Club

    The Condor Club

    560 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-781-8222 The Condor Club is most famous as the place where stripper Carol Doda got her start in the '60s. This topless a-go-go has been heating up North Beach off and on for nearly 50 years and still maintains the old charm (the sultry red velvet boudoir theme has a vintage Playboy feel to it). Customers of this gentleman's club can enjoy different forms of athletic entertainment, whether it be the diverse bevy of dancing ladies or the baseball or football players on the flat-screen TVs. There is a spacious VIP room for more private affairs if the main area gets crowded on Fridays and Saturdays, which it does thanks to the two-for-one appetizers and martini specials. Even Sundays get a special treatment with discount Jägerbombs (a shot of Jägermeister dropped in a pint of Red Bull). There is a $10-$15 cover every day of the week, but early bird specials and passes on the website can get you in for free or at reduced prices - just be sure to tip the dancers and the bartenders.

  • E&O Asian Kitchen

    E&O Asian Kitchen

    314 Sutter San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-693-0303 E&O is a big, fun-filled Disneyfied version of some Southeast Asian trading post, with towering ceilings, a split-level dining room, equatorial-rustic objets d'art, and a tasty selection of Indonesian, Malaysian, and Vietnamese delicacies. The dumplings, spring rolls, satays, and stir fries are especially tasty with one of the house tropical cocktails or a flagon of Indian lager, and don't pass up the crunchy corn fritters, the house specialty. The mood is frolicsome and festive, or opt for the mezzanine if you're in a more intimate mood. Tasty, reasonably priced lunch menu, too. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Fiddler

    Fiddler's Green

    1333 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-441-9758 This bilevel Irish watering hole with a cottage-like exterior is a cute pit stop on the stroll between Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach. Upon entering the closet-sized, low-ceilinged bar on the ground floor, you may think you've seen the whole pub, but head to the rear and you'll find stairs to a larger second floor where DJs spin on weekends and a backup bar slings pints to a mixed crowd of tourists and locals. During daytime meal hours, the kitchen offers traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Fuse


    493 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

    Set among the pricey, crowded bars of Broadway, Fuse is a low-key lounge with a good vibe and excellent taste in DJs. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Garden of Eden

    Garden of Eden

    529 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Gino & Carlo Cocktail Lounge

    Gino & Carlo Cocktail Lounge

    548 Green San Francisco, CA 94133

    Usually playing Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" on the jukebox is a cliché best left to tourist traps - but hearing the man born Anthony Benedetto sing his ode to S.F. feels right at Gino and Carlo, an old-school Italian joint in North Beach where diehard locals often outnumber visitors. Gino and Carlo is more of a neighborhood hangout than a trendy destination, the kind of place you go to drink fizzy American lager on tap, shoot pool on the two tables in back, and scope out the tributes by Frank Sinatra, Herb Caen, and other icons on the walls. This is the City as it used to be. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Grant & Green Saloon

    Grant & Green Saloon

    1371 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133

    This semi-dive in the heart of North Beach is a sure bet for loud rock, cheap drinks, and a crowd of local characters. A sidewalk barker pulls in tourists for blues-rock sets and cover bands on the weekends, but during the week the place is reclaimed by long-haired locals who like their music a little rougher. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Hawaii West

    Hawaii West

    729 Vallejo San Francisco, CA 94133

    Hawaii West is a totally casual, vaguely Pacific-themed neighborhood bar that's neither too divey nor too fancy - like Goldilocks' ideal porridge, it's just right. Whether you're there to enjoy the late-night happy hour prices, shoot some stick on the pool table, or choose some songs on the internet jukebox, this non-trendy joint might be just what you need if you're fleeing the bridge-and-tunnel North Beach crowds down the street. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Horizon Lounge

    Horizon Lounge

    498 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-576-1118 Horizon Lounge, like its brother clubs along Broadway, can vary depending on the event or promoter, but it's a glossy nightclub through and through. The beats are loud, danceable, young-crowd favorites, and bottle service is employed frequently. Two bars service the throngs of clubbers from separate rooms and a few plush couches offer seating from the dance floor. But rest assured: this space is meant for moving. Check Horizon's website for specific event info and you might be able to skip the cover -- otherwise, plan on droppin' some bills at the door along with some time in line.
