  • Dive Bar

    Delirium - Dive Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Delirium means severe confusion resulting from illness, and seeing as how this grungy Mission joint serves up loud music and ridiculously low-priced drinks nightly, it’s not a stretch to suggest that regulars have a propensity to go off the deep end. Given the frosted glass walls, a battered cloth awning, and an entryway ... more

    The Alembic - Bar | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review People don’t go to The Alembic for Jägermeister and Red Bull, DJs and dancing, or cheap beer and bar food. Nobody plays flip-cup on the suede stools that line the mustard-colored walls, gyrates on the rustic tables, or catches the game on the non-existent TVs. Instead, this cozy little slice of hipster heaven attracts its ... more

  • Italian Restaurant / Wine Bar

    Uva Enoteca - Italian Restaurant | Wine Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Several blocks east of the famous Haight-Ashbury intersection and all its hippy/tourist trappings is a cozy little slice of Italy called Uva Enoteca. The name means “grape wine bar,” and owners take the translation seriously, stocking nothing but 100% Italian varietals on the extensive drink list. Older couples drop by ... more

    CIRCA - Club | Lounge | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Catering daily to the discerning Marina party crowd, CIRCA is a chic and trendy lounge that’s equal parts restaurant, dance club, and budget-friendly mimosa lover’s paradise. Reminiscent of a classy hotel lobby, the ground floor features high ceilings, thick square pillars, and dark oak paneling, all a-twinkle with soft ... more

  • Irish Pub / Sports Bar

    The Napper Tandy - Irish Pub | Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Just on the southern edge of the busy Mission drinking scene, corner pub The Napper Tandy is authentically Irish from the name out front to the brogues of its waitresses to the all-you-can-eat fish and chips on Mondays. From the outside, little sets the place apart from the slew of nearby bars save for the large front ... more

    Madrone Art Bar - Art Gallery | Bar | Club | Live Music Venue | Lounge in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review With its Burberry-plaid and gold-plated AK-47 over the bar and a mirror-covered bomb standing in for a disco ball, Madrone Art Bar already eschews the typical club look. Add to this a jumbled hodgepodge of paintings, sculptures, and video displays, a few snaking wooden chandeliers, and wildly varied music, and it’s no wonder ... more

SF’s variety of nightlife extends well beyond its world-famous famous food, as city denizens are equally enthusiastic when it comes to the myriad lounges and bars and clubs in San Francisco. Happy Hour-happy hipsters flood the mixology hotspots, wine-centric lounges, and gastropubs that line Misson and Valencia Streets in the Mission and dive bar-lovers have plenty to play with in the lower Haight.

On the other end of the spectrum, post-grads prep it up in the upscale Marina meat-market or join bar-hoppers along Polk Street in Russian Hill, while in The Castro, a plethora of bars and pubs waving rainbow flags cater to a vibrant gay community, but are welcoming to all stripes.

And then of course there’s the wine culture, no doubt influenced by some of the greatest wineries in the world located a mere hour’s drive north in Napa Valley. Young professionals and discerning students dip into wine flights and straight-from-the-barrel glasses at cozy neighborhood dens all over town, while trendy ladies and wealthy finance executives sip sophisticated new varietals at swanky Downtown lounges and hotel bars.

When it comes to nightclubs, San Francisco nightlife isn’t exactly exploding with options, but there are still some dance-heavy bars and clubs Downtown and in the formerly industrial SoMa that cater to both the see-and-be-seen crowd and the electro DJ lovers.
