1. El Techo, San Francisco

El Techo Exterior

This rooftop restaurant with a view is the ideal spot for a drink, a few batches of chips, salsa, and some tasty food. Keep in mind that everyone likes a rooftop bar so be sure to make a reservation.

2. Anchor Brewing Company, San Francisco

Anchor Brewing Company Exterior

Former craft brewer gone mainstream, the beer is still great and made on site. They offer tours through the brewery (it was founded during the California Gold Rush!) with tastings. Cozy outdoor seating when the weather permits.

3. ANINA, San Francisco

Anina - Drinks

Aesthetic bar among upscale neighbors in Hayes Valley. Laid-back, almost beachy atmosphere inside and out. The drinks are good - try a cocktail, punch bowl, or spritz - but do not expect a food menu.

4. Great Meadow Park at Fort Mason, San Francisco

The Lawn at Fort Mason

This beautiful hilltop park is an old fort, making it perfect for history buffs. Excellent spot to picnic above great views of Alcatraz and The Golden Gate Bridge. Saturdays are a full on party scene if weather permits.

5. Liquid Gold, San Francisco

Liquid Gold - Beer

One for the craft lovers. Liquid Gold is a store and taproom dedicated to - no surprise - beer. They have a large rotation of curated brews and the bartenders are happy to make recommendations. Check the coolers out back for cans to go.
