  • 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

  • Dive Bar / Tiki Bar

    Trad'r Sam - Dive Bar | Tiki Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review It may get cold and damp on the city’s west side, especially way out in outer Richmond, but it always smells like sun-drenched pineapples and rum at Trad’r Sam, a tiki-themed dive that’s been serving up big bowls of sugary sweet drinks to a party-happy young crowd since the 1930s. Surfboards, palm fronds, life preservers ... 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

    Redwood Room - Hotel Bar | Lounge in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Locals don’t usually make a point of hanging out in hotel lounges, but they make an exception for Redwood Room. Located in the luxury Clift Hotel, the venue has been exuding (upper) class since the 1930s, and the long bar – reportedly carved from a single redwood – is a frequent stop for people who never have issues paying ... more

  • Sports Bar

    Greens Sports Bar - Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Eighteen beers on tap, TVs all around, and walls covered with photos, posters, clippings, and anything else related to sports all combine to make Greens Sports Bar one of the city’s most dedicated houses of worship to the holy trinity of baseball, football, and basketball. Hockey, golf, soccer, and probably even horseshoes ... more

    SF Badlands - Club | Gay Bar | Gay Club in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review It’s a party every night at SF Badlands, a Castro institution for young boys who love to dance and older men who aren’t afraid to stare. Heavily discounted Happy Hour specials draw patrons in by the early afternoon, and Sunday’s regular all-you-can drink beer busts even inspire a few uninhibited straight guys to sidle in ... 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.
