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.

  • Blooms Saloon

    Blooms Saloon

    1318 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-861-9467 This no-frills, faux-wood-decorated Potrero Hill bar looks like most prototypical neighborhood joints, but if you like your beer cold, your bartenders sassy, and sports on TV, then this is the place for you. Mostly filled with locals and blue-collar workers - it's not the hippest crowd, but it's certainly a friendly one - Blooms never gets too busy. And it does have a hidden gem: the outdoor patio boasts some of the best views in S.F., although there's no telling when that sassy bartender will open it up for use.

  • Bottom of the Hill

    Bottom of the Hill

    1233 17th St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-621-4455 This indie-slash-punk rock club is a revered local institution with all the staples you'd expect: kitschy retro decor, sticker-smothered bathrooms, and nightly entertainment that ranges from loud-as-hell to what-the-hell-was-that. A smoker's patio in back offers a welcome respite from the crowds and noise inside, or, for another form of distraction, you can scope the old event calendars from years gone by and try to count how many musicians played this small stage before moving on to huge theaters or even arenas -- you'll run out of fingers before you run out of bands.

  • Cafe Cocomo

    Cafe Cocomo

    650 Indiana San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-824-6910 Cafe Cocomo's semi-hidden location - nestled next to the highway at the bottom of Potrero Hill and on the edge of Dogpatch - doesn't mean it's a secret: Salsa lovers congregate at this indoor/outdoor nightclub for live performances by the local orquesta of their choice every weekend, with dance lessons available early in the evening. Occasional DJ events, blues bands, and rock shows also fill the club's calendar. While the industrial location and tropical patio may seem casual, however, keep in mind that a dress code is usually in effect. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Connecticut Yankee

    Connecticut Yankee

    100 Connecticut San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-552-4440 King Arthur's Court is nowhere to be seen, but the Connecticut Yankee may make you feel like you're in a comfy, well-worn New England tavern. Weekend nights frequently see acoustic rock and jam bands playing to a casual post-hippie crowd. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • District Wine Lounge

    District Wine Lounge

    216 Townsend San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-896-2120 Stick to cheese plates, cured meats, oysters, and the smallest of small plates if you're eating a full-blown meal at this handsome, spacious wine bar near the Giants baseball stadium. The chickpea fries with chevre-stuffed Peppadew peppers and spicy albacore tempura roll are tasty. The kitchen definitely sits in the shadow of the wine list. The happy hour scene is dependably lively. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • The Dogpatch Saloon

    The Dogpatch Saloon

    2496 Third St. San Francisco, CA 94107

    With your other choices in the neighborhood being generally limited to gentrifying wine bars and/or scruffy old dives, this amiable, old-fashioned corner saloon may be your best middle-of-the-road option when seeking a casual drink in Dogpatch. Take a seat in one of the wooden booths, pull up a stool at the antique bar, or grab a stick and shoot some pool -- this place aims to make you comfortable. Occasional jazz and blues musicians may also set up on the postage-stamp-sized stage to keep you entertained while sipping at the cold American beverage of your choice.

  • Il Pirata

    Il Pirata

    2007 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-626-2626 With its black leather booths and no-frills atmosphere, this delightfully dingy watering hole offers a roster of DJs spinning dance music ranging from reggae and soul to psytrance and other electronica. Two separate patios make it a pleasant destination on warm weather days and nights. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Jay

    Jay 'n' Bee Club

    2736 20th St. San Francisco, CA 94110
    415-824-4190 Checkered linoleum floor tiles, framed photos of old jazzmen and jocks of yore, and the occasional rockabilly DJ give this Mission/Potrero neighborhood bar a comfortable throwback vibe. The rear patio is a bonus on warm summer evenings, and the menu at this welcoming dive has evolved from standard bar grub and Mexican eats to delicious pizzas and an array of salads. The pizzas are thin-crusted, with locally sourced toppings such as sausage from long-running Mission District deli Lucca's. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Mercer

    255 Rhode Island San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Mission Hill Saloon

    Mission Hill Saloon

    491 Potrero San Francisco, CA 94110

    First it was Sadie's Flying Elephant. Then it was Mission Hill Saloon. Then it was the Unresolved Love Life of Evelyn Lee (whatever the hell that meant). Now it's apparently Mission Hill Saloon again — though the old Sadie's Flying Elephant sign has somehow also reappeared. But whatever. This taproom otherwise remains much the same as it always was, i.e., a convivial neighborhood watering hole where conversation is easy and the drinks come served without attitude. We still don't know where "Mission Hill" is located, but fortunately its saloon is friendly enough, whatever it may be called today, tomorrow, or the day after.

  • The Ramp

    The Ramp

    855 Terry Francois San Francisco, CA 94158
    415-621-2378 You almost expect to see 1970s-era Jimmy Buffett sipping margaritas on the patio of this waterfront bar with a sun-faded beach shack atmosphere. On summer weekends, however, live salsa bands fill the afternoon air with decidedly more Latin-flavored music. When enjoying the Bloody Marys and boleros, remember to bring sunglasses and watch out for seagulls. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Rocketfish


    1469 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-282-9666 Rocketfish is a sushi and Japanese-style tapas restaurant and bar located in the former Lingba Lounge space. "Japanese-style tapas," you ask? Yes. Owners Marco Rodriguez and Kenichi Kawashima would be happy to explain it to you - and serve a few fishy small plates while they're at it - as you take in the casually hip surroundings.

  • Thee Parkside

    Thee Parkside

    1600 17th St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-252-1330 This longtime home to bikers and blue-collars has transformed itself into one of the city's finest small rooms for rock. The calendar is jammed with the crème de la crème of garage, punk, metal, indie, and underground acts delivering intimate shows in the main room for a low cover. The back patio is great on warm afternoons and evenings, too. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
