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.
Delirium

Delirium

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.

  • 1015 Folsom

    1015 Folsom

    1015 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-431-1200

    http://www.1015.com A central hub of S.F.'s dance scene, 1015 boasts three enormous dance floors, an internationally renowned roster of DJs, and a guaranteed late-night party. Depending on your musical tastes, you might find yourself in one of several sub-clubs housed within the facility, including the low-slung front room (with its glowing astroidal ceiling) and the more cavernous main room (with a balcony and huge P.A. system that pumps beats to throngs of happy dancers).

  • 103 Harriet

    103 Harriet

    103 Harriet St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-431-1200

    103 Harriet (aka 1015 Folsom: The Remix) is essentially the same venue as its more famous big brother on Folsom Street, except you enter around the corner on Harriet Street and, depending on the event, your chosen DJ/performer will be in a different dance area than the main room. Generally the 103 Harriet "venue" is used for more underground, electronix-heavy acts than the house music that draws B&T crowds to 1015. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • 111 Minna Gallery

    111 Minna Gallery

    111 Minna San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-974-1719

    http://www.111minnagallery.com An art gallery/nightclub/bar, this South of Market venue shows films, hosts DJs, gets people drunk -- all in a sleek atmosphere where pretty people come to play. 111 Minna's two rooms, each with its own liquor service counter, can host separate simultaneous events, or they can act as one large venue where crowds commingle while dancing, drinking, or gazing at the walls filled with ever-changing visual displays. Regular art shindigs like Dr. Sketchy's drawing party share the calendar with hip-hop DJ nights, happy hour fundraisers for local charities, live rock shows, and other varied cultural events, so if you're not into what 111 Minna's doing tonight, check back again tomorrow -- it's bound to be something entirely different.

  • 21st Amendment

    21st Amendment

    563 2nd St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-369-0900

    http://www.21st-amendment.com//splash.html Its name celebrates the repeal of Prohibition, so it's no surprise that 21st Amendment's brewpub is the opposite of a secret subterranean speakeasy: with its large windows, bright wood accents, and open floorplan, this South Park restaurant and microbrewery couldn't be more forthright about its upscale, beer-loving raison d'être. The taps here serve a variety of microbrew standbys (e.g., IPAs, porters, Belgian-style ales) as well as some beers (like the watermelon wheat ale) aimed at those with quirky and/or adventurous tastes. The menu, meanwhile, consists of fancified sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, steaks, and other staples. None of this comes cheap, alas - beers start at $7, burgers $10, and entrees $15 - but the happy, chatty crowds don't seem to mind. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • 83 Proof

    83 Proof

    83 First St. San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-296-8383

    http://www.83proof.com This is a bar that takes its cocktails very seriously. The bartenders are alchemist savants, thumbing through their comprehensive knowledge of spirits and herbs, veggies, and fruits to design your perfect drink. You tell them what flavors you like and they'll build a cocktail to match. Throwing some muscle into it, they'll work the pestle to mash up fresh ingredients such as strawberries for a jalapeño vodka mix. Each bartender has his or her specialty: some favor rum, some whiskey or scotch, but all are friendly, unpretentious, and incredibly attentive. They love what they do, spending time to explain the flavors as well as the bar's history. The building has a bit of S.F. folklore and notoriety tied to it: it was a Chinese triad bar that got closed down for over 10 years following a violent shootout, and prior to that it was a longshoreman's bar. The original 1936 flooring remains. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Anabelle

    Anabelle's Bar and Bistro

    68 Fourth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-777-1200

    http://www.annabelles.net This venerable hangout for tourists serves pricey bistro and bar fare with an emphasis on local, seasonal produce and sustainable, organic meats. Annabelle's is comfortable, whether you're plopped down at the bar for a glass of wine or gathered around a table with the whole family. The menu is highly nonthreatening: calamari, garlic fries, pork chops with mashed potatoes, Anchor Steam-braised short ribs, and a fine burger. Cocktails are excellent.

    AsiaSF

    201 Ninth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-255-2742

    http://www.asiasf.com Although DJs at AsiaSF draw from a booming mix of R&B, house, salsa, and pop while the chefs serve up tasty treats, it's the "gender illusionists" - the cross-dressing waitstaff - who rank this inclusive, friendly restaurant as a swanky gay and lesbian hangout.

  • B Restaurant & Bar

    B Restaurant & Bar

    720 Howard San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-495-9800

    http://www.brestaurantandbar.com This tiny space is hidden on the second level of Yerba Buena Center, and though inside seating is scant, patio seating offers views of downtown and a place to enjoy warm days. Slide up to the concrete-and-dark-wood bar and order from the selection of moderately priced wines or artisan cocktails like a Gin Rickey (gin, fresh lime, and house-made ginger ale). Happy hour specials include well cocktails, oysters, and appetizers like truffle french fries. B Bar isn't open on Mondays and its 9 p.m. weeknight bedtime limits it to being an early evening spot, but if you need a post-work or pre-movie drink, it's a nice quiet place to go and unwind.

  • Bar Agricole

    Bar Agricole

    355 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-355-9400

    http://www.baragricole.com There are two grand gestures at work at Bar Agricole: ingredients of pristine integrity (house-made bitters, locally distilled spirits, Biodynamic vegetables custom-grown for the chef) and a space so epically designed it resembles an opera set. While Thad Vogler's drinks are deft and artfully presented, the modest ambitions behind the food do not match the setting so well. The high points are charcuterie-oriented plates such as rabbit sausages with carrots and wheatberries and black-cod sausage with sea urchin poached in dashi.

  • Bar Basic

    Bar Basic

    510 Brannan San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-227-0449

    http://www.basicsf.com When owner Mike Limanon left the real estate business and opened Bar Basic, he went in with the intention of making it a spot he and his friends would frequent. It had to be sleek but chill at the same time. Bar Basic features a street-inspired art collection along the wall and an old school Nintendo right at the bar, tempting you to show the regulars how you level up. During the week, the SOMA neighbors come to sit around the white bar and watch sports with Mike while he pops open a Bud Light or shakes up a martini with equal hospitality and cheer.

  • BeatBox

    314 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-500-2675

    http://www.beatboxsf.com This location can claim more identities than Sybil, having been called Studio Z, Fat City, Siberia, and other names over the past few years. After a brief incubation and renovation period, the name has changed once again - to BeatBox - with a newly updated interior whose boxy, brick-walled forms are reminiscent of the neighborhood's recent industrial past.

  • Bloodhound

    Bloodhound

    1145 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-863-2840

    http://www.bloodhoundsf.com Deep in SOMA, Bloodhound mixes up specialty cocktails that are to die for. The hunter's lodge-themed bar is not safe for PETA members: decor includes mounted animal skulls and an antler chandelier. Try the bar's namesake cocktail, which combines Campari, grapefruit juice, and Hangar 1 vodka, or order the house specialty, bacon-infused bourbon. Head to the back for a game of pool, pour your money into the jukebox, or a take shot at the Buck Hunter arcade game. Disclaimer: Aim can sometimes be impaired from alcohol consumption.

All-ages crowds can catch free shows across the DIY spectrum, chomp on snacks, and wash their whites - simultaneously. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Brickhouse Cafe

    Brickhouse Cafe

    426 Brannan San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-369-0222

    http://www.brickhousesf.com Once you get past the plus-size pinecones littering the countertops, Brickhouse Cafe is a pretty straightforward place: $2 pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon, Anchor Steam-battered fish on a golden bed of fries, and what the menu proudly calls the "big ass" burger, a sloppy monstrosity on a ciabatta roll. Aside from the food being better than most similarly conceived joints, there are a few wrinkles: For starters, the owner's fishing trips occasionally supply the kitchen with sockeye salmon, and his family's eastern Washington farm raises all the grass-fed beef for those burgers.

  • Butter

    Butter

    354 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-863-5964

    http://www.smoothasbutter.com Its cheeky trailer park decor - something like a retro diner crossed with a NASCAR fan's rec room - has made Butter a favorite of club-crawling ironists. After drinking or dancing up an appetite, patrons hit the double-wide food stand for inexpensive "trailer treats" like mini corn dogs, deep fried mac 'n' cheese, and Frito pie. The custom drink menu features similarly thematic concoctions, including such lowbrow libations as the Shotgun Wedding (bourbon and a Bud), the Bitchin' Camaro (Sailor Jerry rum and Dr. Pepper), and Prom Night Punch (apple vodka, cranberry juice, and 7 Up). You gotta hand it to a place whose idea of "bottle service" is a pint of PBR with a mini bottle of Fernet Branca - though you should be warned that the drink prices aren't quite as bottom-shelf as the trashy attitude might lead you to believe.

  • Cat Club

    Cat Club

    1190 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-703-8964

    http://www.sfcatclub.com Exposed brick walls, soft sofas, and industrial-chic fittings fight for decor prominence in this central SOMA dance club, while moody black-clad swirlers, tough hip-hop dykes, and nostalgic '80s Wavers fight for floor space in the two separate dance areas. But one thing is certain about the Cat Club: While so many new neighborhood venues fight to become mainstream hotspots that draw in rich, suburban weekend warriors, the Cat Club caters to a mostly underground clientele that's usually more gay, goth, or just plain weird than the kids down the street.

    The Chieftain

    198 Fifth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-615-0916

    http://www.thechieftain.com Occasional acoustic acts entertain at this Irish pub in SOMA - mainly Celtic folk acts singing maudlin ballads about the Emerald Isle - though the songs are mostly background music for draining a few pints. More often the entertainment arrives via sports action beaming down from the TVs, while the menu boasts superior pub grub of both the Irish and American varieties.

    415-339-8686

    http://www.sfclubs.com Its upscale digs are home to a wild 18-and-up weekend scene. People move through two large dance areas to a mix of Latin house, high-energy romps, and club anthems. If you have the extra cash and a penchant for privacy, Club 525 also offers plenty of VIP hideouts. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Club 93

    Club 93

    93 Ninth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-621-6333

    http://www.club93sf.com This longtime dive South of Market has changed its profile somewhat in recent months, brushing a fresh coat of paint inside and booking performers for bawdy comedy nights, drag queen cabarets, and other forms of entertainment besides simply slugging well whiskey to a jukebox soundtrack. While this has the side effect of bumping up the drink prices a bit - Club 93 is no longer the budget booze mecca it once was - the new scenemakers bring increased energy to the long, low-ceilinged room. The pool tables remain in the bar's back half, however, should you feel the desire to shoot some stick while simultaneously shooting the breeze with a 6'3" transvestite in stiletto heels and feather boa.

    415-339-8686

    http://www.sfclubs.com This 18-and-over place seems left over from the early boom of club life, with enormous crowds, cavernous dance areas, and an unceasing thump. Weekend parties represent mainstream clubgoing tastes, with DJs spinning techno, trance, and house. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • DaDa S.F. Gallery & Bar

    DaDa S.F. Gallery & Bar

    86 Second St. San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-357-1367

    http://www.dadasf.com Located two blocks South of Market but appearing more like a Mission dive with its red walls and gaudy light fixtures, DaDa S.F. bills itself as an art gallery and bar. A massive assemblage sculpture of Icarus' mythological descent hangs on one wall, gothic metal sculptures spy from high corners, and modern Cubist paintings span the longest wall, keeping DaDa S.F. true to its claim. But the crowd here isn't art-scene chic: you're more likely to find the cooler of the corporate bunch looking to slug as many Mai Tais or pomegranate Mojitos as the happy hour will allow. And a generous happy hour it is, pouring heavy from 4-9 p.m. and serving $6 cocktails in pint glasses. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
