  • 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.

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • Cafe Divine

    Cafe Divine

    1600 Stockton San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-986-3414 Located just across the street from Washington Square, this homey, friendly bistro is one of North Beach's primo hangouts. The maple bar and its gleaming brass espresso machine serve up fragrant, potent coffeehouse concoctions. Marvelous comfort food is served throughout the day: buttermilk waffles at breakfast, thin-crusted pizzetti in the afternoon, and the always-delicious three-course Italian prix-fixe at suppertime. Paintings by local artists cover the walls, live jazz is a regular occurrence, and the setting (the marvelous old Dante Building) is airy, convivial, and brimming with that neighborhood dolce far niente.

  • Caffe Trieste

    Caffe Trieste

    601 Vallejo San Francisco, CA 94133
    415-392-6739 Unchanged since the Beat poets chose to frequent it in the 1950s, the cafe hosts Saturday afternoon opera, and still makes the best cappuccino in town. During the hours without live music, there's plenty of entertainment to be had just watching streams of people walk by the windows. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium

    Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium

    1111 California San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-776-4702 Do the Freemasons secretly run the world? You can seek out clues in the carvings, mosaics, and other artwork at this imposing edifice perched on the crest of Nob Hill. With Grace Cathedral located across street and the Bohemian Club just down Taylor, all your conspiracy theories can be entertained at once. Or you can simply sit back and enjoy the rock bands, comedians, and concert events in the 3,000-seat auditorium. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • 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. More >>

  • Top of the Mark

    Top of the Mark

    One Nob Hill, 999 California San Francisco, CA 94108
    415-616-6916 This famed martini bar offers high-class wallpaper music on the weekends, including lounge piano, easy listening, classical, and some jazz combos. The best stuff comes late on Friday and Saturday nights, when the drinks pour with a heavy hand and the jazz bands blow with a little more gusto. More >>
