    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

    ThirstyBear Brewing Company - Bar | Brewery | Drinking Activity | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Tapas and beer are on the menu at ThirstyBear Brewing Company, a cavernous brewery and restaurant that gets chock-full of city denizens in need of Spanish cuisine and freshly brewed pints. The round wooden tables that surround the central bar and line the exposed brick walls are taken over by tech workers and tourists at ... more

    Savanna Jazz - Bar | Jazz Club | Live Music Venue | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review The seasoned musicians who take to Savanna Jazz’s small stage five nights a week aren’t drawing a crowd with their made-up pop looks or licentious dance moves, but with their fierce dedication to pure Brazilian and Latin jazz. Old-school music junkies drop in early so they have time to scan the myriad albums and photos ... more

    Beretta - Bar | Italian Restaurant | Pizza Place in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review There are tons of places in the city to grab a slice of pizza, but at the always-packed Beretta, an artisan pie comes with artfully crafted cocktails on the side. A long communal table and wide bar provide plenty of opportunities for singles and groups to mingle, while intimate candlelit tables by the windows and on the ... more

    Comstock Saloon - Bar | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Located a few blocks from the madness of North Beach, amid hordes of high-rises and scurrying, briefcase-toting fellows, Comstock Saloon is a beautiful homage to the Barbary days of yore – minus the toothless gunslingers angling for moonshine. Named after noted mining tycoon Henry Comstock, the bar occupies a space that ... more

    Party Earth Review Consistently ranked one of the best restaurants in town by both local and national publications, Absinthe Brasserie & Bar features an acclaimed menu of craft cocktails, an extensive wine list, and of course the namesake hallucinogenic drink. Situated on a trendy stretch of Hayes Street, the venue benefits from its proximity ... 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.
