Old-school jazz club with live music on most nights - check the events calendar for a rundown of the visiting musicians. The food and drinks hold up well, particularly the cocktails. An intimate music experience.
Wide selection of wines and staff that knows what they're talking about. Used to be an old record store so there are vinyls lining the wall. Good rectangular pizza and fresh oysters. Super comfy and quirky spot.
Hard liquors, cocktails, upscale bar fare, and evening jazz in an old-school venue. Comstock Saloon's experienced bartenders will often go off-menu to ensure drinks are exactly to preference. A sophisticated evening.
Trendy bistro-bar in North Beach with a great wine selection that pairs with its menu of small plates and charcuterie. An ideal spot for social occasions. The staff are highly knowledgable and provide attentive service.
Historic gay bar in The Castro. One of the first of its kind where patrons could be seen within, an uncommon occurrence in a less-accepting time. The cocktails are great and so is the vintage decor. All are welcome.
Trendy cocktail bar named in tribute to the famous Eagles song. Tucked discreetly down a sidestreet in the Financial District. Best for happy hour drinks (4P M until 6 PM) but also offers some pretty good eats.
Strong margaritas and salsa dancing beneath a hanging graveyard of deteriorating piñatas - perhaps a dramatization, but the vibe is undoubtedly cool. A solid spot to start a night out in The Mission. Again, the margaritas are no joke.
Cool place with indoor and outdoor seating. It kind of feels like your hometown dive bar but a bit more upscale. Try the spooky puppy and enjoy the live music if you're lucky and there's a band playing! Tons of beer on tap.
