    Laszlo - Bar | Lounge in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review San Franciscans expect to find everything from gritty dives to upscale lounges in The Mission, but Laszlo – at least for now – is the neighborhood’s only communist-themed drinking den. Granted, the commie vibe is subtle, mostly represented by a mix of Cold War-era propaganda on the otherwise bare walls, red and black banquettes ... more

    Biscuits and Blues - Bar | Live Music Venue | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review A Southern-style restaurant in the heart of Northern California’s biggest metropolis, Biscuits and Blues may be a bit of a dichotomy, but it’s also the city’s top spot for live blues EVERY DAMN NIGHT, SON! Giant colorful paintings, photographs of renowned musicians, and a big neon “Blues” sign adorn the entryway, while ... more

    Tommy's Mexican Restaurant - Bar | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Like a beacon in outer Richmond’s consistent fog, the neon sign outside Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant beckons to seasoned tequila lovers in dire need of blue agave. Paintings of the Mexican countryside mesh with the sombreros, striped blankets, and Cabo Wabo posters that line the walls of this longtime neighborhood staple ... more

    Pandora Karaoke & Bar - Asian Restaurant | Karaoke Bar | Lounge | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review There’s no shortage of karaoke dive bars in San Francisco, but for those who want bottle service to go with their power ballads or sushi to supplement their show tunes, it doesn’t get much better than Pandora Karaoke & Bar. A daily Happy Hour attracts a casual crowd of young professionals, who pop in for cheap beer and ... more

    Dave's - Dive Bar | Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review A cozy neighborhood Giants haunt located in the midst of a sea of hotels and offices, Dave’s attracts a varied clientele with its affordable grub and heavy-handed drink specials.

    Phone Booth - Dive Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Located south of the heaviest Mission drinking scene on a largely residential stretch, Phone Booth may have a cream-colored façade that’s as understated as, well, a phone company’s, but the similarities end there. Open since the 80s, the name stems from a long-gone Pacific Bell office that stood across the street, when ... more

Browse SF Bars and Clubs by Category

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.
