The most popular San Francisco Bars and Lounges.
Bottoms up! San Francisco bars are one of the few places you need to hit up during the night...or late afternoon!
Here I'll list the most popular bars and lounges in San Francisco and rate them based on their atmosphere, cost, and of course, the quality of the drinks.
The following are San Francisco bars that I think serve the best wine, beer, sake, and even coffee!
(between Divisadero St. & Broderick St)
San Francisco, CA 94117
Open Mon-Sat. 4pm-11pm.
No doubt one of the bars that serve THE BEST sakes!
OMG. You guys have got to try the Sake Flight and February Sake. Along with some calamari/octopus balls, it's like a party in your mouth. lol.
Pros: - Super awesome staff, fast service, affordable drinks and snacks, pleasant atmosphere, best sakes you'll ever taste!
Cons: -Um..closed Sundays? lol. Not really anything bad to say about this place!
(between Polk St. & Fell St.)
San Francisco, CA 94102
Open Mon-Fri 8am-10pm; Sat 10am-3pm. Coffee, Tea & Wine Bar
Ok, you drunkies. San Francisco bars doesn't always have to involve alcohol, lol.
This place makes my top list of San Francisco bars because Ma'velous serves a crazy tasting, orgasmic coffee!
I'm not talking about your regular latte at Starbucks. I'm talking about an elegant, straight up interesting coffee sometimes beautifully made right in front of you.
It's almost kind of artistic in a way :).
Pros: -Interesting, impressive experience for coffee lovers, friendly staff, high quality, in-your-face, best in SF coffee! Tip: Try the Siphon Coffee or Mocha!
Cons: Closes early, expensive coffee ($4 for a regular coffee...worth it though, I'm telling you!)
(between Highway 101 & Franklin St.)
San Francisco, CA 94123
Open 5pm-12am on most days. No entrance fee. No credit cards (hence the 3 stars).
This is one of my favorite bars because their beers are just freakin' awesome!
I thought that all beers tasted the same until I went here!
Pros: -Great wine, one of the best beers that a few San Francisco bars can offer, friendly staff, clean environment.
Cons: -No credit cards allowed, not very big compared to others, pricey ($8 beers).
(between Sanchez St. & Noe St. Castro Neighborhood)
San Francisco, CA 94114
Open 12pm-2am. No entrance fee. Gay Bar.
This is one of the most interesting San Francisco bars that I've gone to.
I went during pride parade (which celebrates the gay and lesbian community here in SF), and I must say, I had some CRAZY fun, lol.
The drinks were FANTASTIC. I went during happy hour and the cheapest drink I got was $3.
The crowd, and the staff, and overall atmosphere were super fun!
Pros: -Friendly staff, great cocktails, affordable drinks.
Cons: -Small location.
Yo...Always be aware of your surroundings. Always assign a designated driver as SF cops will have no mercy on you ;). Just sayin'!
See you around,
Your friendly, local SF travel guide ;).
Tip your bartender! You'll find your next drink tasting extra good.
Hey, if you're gonna go out and grab yourself a drink, you might as well just leave even a buck to the bartenders/baristas. You'll get so much props, haha. Don't be cheap! =D
