    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

    The Parlor - Bar | Club | Lounge | Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Located in tourist-heavy Fisherman’s Wharf, The Parlor is equal parts dance club, sports bar, and classic cocktail lounge. Daily Happy Hours entice preppy young Giants fans from the nearby Marina to drop in for a game and a Bud, not to mention the tidal waves of out-of-towners making a pit stop before hitting the area’s ... more

    Cigar Bar & Grill - Cigar Bar | Live Music Venue in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Serving as a safe-haven for both the Cuban connoisseur and the American Spirit-sporting hipster, Cigar Bar & Grill is where San Franciscans go to smoke, snack, and groove to sultry jazz. Once past the unassuming façade and down into this subterranean den, guests first pass the onsite humidor, packed with ever-changing ... more

    The Saloon - Historic Bar | Live Music Venue in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review North Beach is notorious for overpriced tourist traps and equally overpriced booby bars, but The Saloon – SF’s oldest bar – falls into neither category, instead serving up budget-friendly booze and live blues every night. Little has changed since the place opened in 1861, and entering this quintessential ... more

    440 Castro - Gay Bar | Gay Club in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review "Leather daddies, bears, and muscle men, oh my!"– and the rainbow-brick road leads them all to Castro 440, one of the few watering holes in the neighborhood that caters specifically to the leather/bondage/kink scene. But while shirtless dudes with chest hair are habitually in attendance, 440’s daily specials and varied ... more

    Lone Palm - Bar | Lounge in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Opened in the late 80s by a palm tree importer – which explains the towering Arecaceae Palmae planted out front – Lone Palm is a cross between a sultry art deco lounge and a tropical speakeasy. Rows of candlelit white-linen tables run down one side of the room which, combined with the pervasive burgundy hue from the dark ... 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.
