Russian Hill, San Francisco –
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 are also welcome here, and though the cozy one-room joint is pretty mellow if a game’s not on, Happy Hour specials during the week entice both preppy Marina residents and busted and broke college kids looking for some of the cheapest drafts in town.
All bets are off if the 49ers, Giants, Warriors, A’s, Sharks, or any other popular athletic event graces the airwaves, however, when any space not already occupied by framed Sports Illustrated covers, autographed pics, or the old pool table in back are taken over by stomping fans.
Front windows usually left open allow the shrieks of victory and howls of defeat to stream onto the street, as jersey- and-eye-black-wearing revelers get loose with frothy pints of Shock Top or bare-bones bottles of Bud.
Even at max capacity, this little venue has so many flat-screens that even a five-foot-seven Spud Webb-framed patron can catch every play, making Greens Sports Bar a solid choice for game time, half time, and all the times in between.
Weekend warriors, frat types, yuppies, college kids, blue-collar sports junkies, jocks, former jocks, and wannabe jocks, early 20s to late 30s.
A whole mess of flat-screens tuned to sports. Standard jukebox selection that usually takes a back seat to the TVs. Pool table. Handful of old-school arcade games.
No food served, but patrons are welcome to bring in their own. Menus are provided for neighboring establishments that deliver to the bar.
Beer $4–$5.50, wine $7, shots and cocktails $6–$12.
Casual: sports attire, jeans, t-shirts, khakis, sweats, come as you are.
Any time a big game is on or during the week for Happy Hour and some of the cheapest drafts in town.
Lots of tacos, burritos, and margaritas await at Nick's Crispy Tacos (1500 Broadway).
