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.

  • Hungry I

    Hungry I

    546 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

  • International Sports Club

    International Sports Club

    1000 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133

    A globetrotting decor collection of currency and miniature flags gives this casual cocktail lounge its name, while its foot-traffic-heavy location -- situated midway between North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf -- means that you may run into a few foreign travelers and tourists here as well. (Don't worry if you can't speak their language: maybe you can bond over the sports games showing on the overhead TVs instead.) The triangular bar area is always filled with lots of natural light, thanks to a long wall of streetside windows, with a foosball table and pair of pool tables providing distractions beyond the TV broadcasts. And if your finances are a bit tight -- or currency exchange rates aren't working in your favor at the moment -- the International Sports Club's daily happy hour prices rate among the best in town.

  • The Irish Bank

    The Irish Bank

    10 Mark San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-788-7152 While the interior sticks with traditional Irish bar clichés (give or take some hip-hop blaring on the speakers), what gives the Irish Bank its unique character is the alleyway setting that's simultaneously urban and secluded. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Kells Irish Restaurant & Bar

    Kells Irish Restaurant & Bar

    530 Jackson San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-955-1916 Have an old-fashioned Irish sing-along to live music (on weekends) at this classy, comfortable pub lined in brick and presenting gorgeous views of the bay. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Kennedy

    Kennedy's Irish Pub and Curry House

    1040 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-441-8855 Do you go to Kennedy's for the two-for-one happy hour? Maybe. For the best beer selection - both draft and bottles - anywhere along Columbus in North Beach? Perhaps. For the fact that it's ostensibly an Irish pub, yet houses an Indian restaurant so you can munch on pakora as you sip Guinness? Why not? Or is the number one reason to do your drinking here because it's the one and only place that has an air hockey table in San Francisco? Ding-ding-ding! Winner! There are multiple billiard and foosball tables, even a Big Buck Shot console, but air hockey - now there's a bar game you can really wager the next round on.

  • La Rocca

    La Rocca's Corner

    957 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-674-1266 The sign outside La Rocca's shouts "This Is It!" -- almost as if they were psychic and knew your final destination was always intended to be this little neighborhood drinkery on the edge of North Beach. Lots of worn old wood and comforting earth tones give La Rocca's interior a lived-in feeling, while the large windows give you a great view on the world as it passes by. Since it's more of a friendly hangout than a fashion-forward hotspot, drinks aren't treated with too much seriousness or pomposity here: your best bet is probably a neat glass of whiskey or cold pint of your favorite classic American beer.

  • Larry Flynt's

    1031 Kearny San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Li Po Cocktail Lounge

    Li Po Cocktail Lounge

    916 Grant San Francisco, CA 94108

    Granted, the competition is slim, but Li Po is the hippest music venue in Chinatown. The dank little basement (below the divey old bar) hosts fringe punk, funk, electro, and rock for a fashionista set, in an environment that has all the cinematic charms of the shadowy old neighborhood.

  • Little Darlings

    Little Darlings

    312 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Maggie McGarry

    Maggie McGarry's

    1353 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-399-9020 The term "Irish pub" likely sends images of hokey shamrocks, Guinness logos, and other Kelly-green colored marketing materials through your head. But rest assured, Maggie McGarry's is the real deal rather than riddled with gimmicks. Sure, they have Guinness on tap (along with Sierra Nevada and Widmer), local drunks at the bar, and a bartender with an Irish accent, but it's hardly manufactured. The place also becomes a karaoke bar on Wednesdays and hosts live music on most weekends. Confused by the lack of stage? It's hidden! The second bar area converts into a venue by folding back giant room dividers. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Monroe


    473 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-772-9002 A new upscale bar in the former Dragon Bar location. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mr. Bing

    Mr. Bing's

    201 Columbus San Francisco, CA 94133

    Though this bright and divey bar may be shaped like a triangle, Mr. Bing's is actually the fourth corner of a block-long Columbus drinking trapezoid. And of that trapezoid's four corners - Mr. Bing's, Vesuvio, Specs', and Tosca - this is the place to go when you want to watch television more than tourists, prefer digital juke music to saloony piano jams, and would gladly opt for a well whiskey instead of a fancy Manhattan. Neon beer signs and big picture windows banish shadows here, ESPN on the TV competes with classic rock on the jukebox, and ordering a simple shot and chilled Bud bottle (sorry, no drafts) won't assault your wallet. If you're not into televised sports, try the alternate entertainment option: the People Watching Channel, always broadcasting direct to your retinas via the long streetside windows.

  • Murphy

    Murphy's Pub

    217 Kearny St. San Francisco, CA 94108-4502

  • Northstar Cafe

    Northstar Cafe

    1560 Powell San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-397-0577 From outside, you can hear the click-clack of pool balls colliding. The windows are large and there's a backdoor leading from the pool table to a quiet, tree-lined street. The bar itself is inconspicuous, so the sounds of the break shot or the cheers from sports-loving patrons are the markers that this low-profile building is indeed a bar. On the weekends, however, it gets crowded and the pool table gets moved to make room for a makeshift dance floor. The jukebox is eclectic, skewing slightly towards classic rock but featuring some mainstream pop, indie rock, and for some reason a whole lot of Michael Jackson, which helps drive the weekend dance parties.

  • O

    O'Reilly's Irish Pub & Restaurant

    622 Green San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-989-6222 Duck under the green awning and into O'Reilly's Irish Bar for an authentic North Beach pub experience. Old World pictures, mirrors, and green-tinged glass cover the walls. Wrought iron candelabras hang from the ceiling. A steady stream of tourists and regulars (especially on Friday and Saturday nights) make it a crowd, but with dark wood tables and chairs tucked into every nook and cranny, the bar is deceptively spacious - and, bonus, there is sidewalk seating. Pick from a vast collection of Ireland's best beers, including Boddingtons, Kilkenny, and, of course, Guinness (which takes the requisite full five minute pour, by the way). Tip: After a couple of drinks, hobble over to the adjoining restaurant for a satisfying nosh (highly recommended with fresh oysters and homemade soda bread).

  • Otis


    25 Maiden San Francisco, CA 94108
    N/A Used mostly for invite-only soirees (you can, however, get in carte blanche if you're willing to pay anywhere from $250 to $1,000 for a membership), this polished new club near Union Square sits on charming Maiden Lane. Its cozy and well-lit interiors host a number of parties, attracting crowds ranging from upscale design firm associates and former Mayor Willie Brown to plucky alternative scenes.

    25 Maiden Lane San Francisco, CA 94108-5446

  • Pachamama Restaurant

    Pachamama Restaurant

    1630 Powell San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-646-0018 Rousing entertainment and high spirits are the (excellent) reasons to visit this intimate world-music nightspot, but the mostly unexciting menu of Andean specialties offers a few delights as well, among them the spicy beef turnovers known as salteñas, shortbread cookies layered with thick caramel (alfajores), and a light, crisp sangria. The venue's owners, the Sukay folk ensemble, perform every Saturday night. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Parlor

    The Parlor

    2801 Leavenworth San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-775-5110 With something for everyone, the Parlor can be your sports bar broadcasting a game from any of its five TVs. It can be your dive, with the pool table under dim lights in the middle of the bar. It can be your club with the huge dance floor in a back room. It can even be your concert venue: there's a stage set up for bands and on Thursdays there's live music with no cover. As the night goes on, the cover goes up, so it's a good idea to get in early for free (or e-mail ahead of time for the guest list, which closes by 8 p.m.). Though it bills itself as a club, the decor and the drinks are no frills - Manhattans, classic margaritas, or $7 Patrón shots are the most popular offerings. And because of its casual atmosphere, it makes a good starting place before making the rounds. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Red Jack Saloon

    Red Jack Saloon

    131 Bay San Francisco, CA 94133

    New England expats will feel right at home in the Red Jack Saloon, where the relaxed, den-like environment and Bostonian sports decor might make you believe this is truly the place where everybody knows your name. When not watching the games in the main room, grab a bench at one of two picnic tables in the small rear patio, which comes complete with a fence painted like the Fenway Park scoreboard - and yet this place is so friendly, even Yankees fans should feel welcomed. (During NFL season, the Red Jack fills with Washington Redskins supporters; that team was founded in Beantown, however, so Boston purists shouldn't fret.) For those who don't care about sports, a full bar, daily drink specials, and occasional free food buffets offer distractions beyond what's screening on the TVs.

  • Roaring 20

    Roaring 20's

    552 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133

  • Rogue Ales Public House

    Rogue Ales Public House

    673 Union San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-362-7880 Oregon-based Rogue's local watering hole offers as many as 18 house beers plus a handful of guest taps. This is a prime location for drinking in North Beach if you don't want to feel like you're drinking in North Beach. The vibe is laid-back, although the beer can be spendy, with pints costing a cool $6 (even during happy hour). There's also a full liquor bar where you can try some interesting drinks such as the Bloody Mary with bacon. Rogue serves basic pub grub, too - also with bacon.

  • Rosewood


    732 Broadway San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-951-4886 Just off the touristy stretch of Columbus and Broadway hides Rosewood - a simple, clean, modern lounge. On weekends, the DJ spins current and nostalgic faves (think Lady Gaga backed by Warren G). The crowd mostly sips bourbon, although Rosewood also has Stella on tap and a few wines by the glass. If you're VIP enough to get an invite to the back patio, take it: this hidden gem is only open for private parties (of which it hosts many). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Saloon

    The Saloon

    1232 Grant San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-989-7666 Revered for its daily live blues performances, the Saloon also has the rugged distinction of having survived the 1906 earthquake and standing as the oldest bar in San Francisco (opened in 1861). With its rough aged-wood interior and hardy clientele, the Saloon definitely stands apart from the shiny new neighbors along this nightlife-rich stretch of North Beach.
