Party Earth The Wreck Room Review

The Scene

The Wreck Room in San Francisco's Nob Hill is an adult arcade/sports bar with great games & solid drinks. Get your frat on in SF with Party Earth.

Perched on the western slope of the normally mellow neighborhood of Nob Hill, there’s a bustling arcade-meets-sports-bar called The Wreck Room.

The black brick façade has all the standard trappings of a dive, but inside, the clean lacquered floors, fancy fake vintage beer signs, and wall of top-shelf liquor cater to a classier set of sports fans.

Late afternoons see beer-drinking young suits fresh from their Downtown offices playing on the lone pool table, while sorority alums up from the Marina clink cosmos and break their nails on the dartboard.

When the night is in full flare, a line of Stephen Curry imitators takes turns vying for the top score on the pop-a-shot game, which blasts arena tunes and moves erratically to test the drunken hoop stars on their jump shots.

Along the opposite wall, double-fisters admire the state-of-the-art shuffleboard, which sports a scoreboard that eradicates any debate on that last four-pointer.

Fridays and Saturday see the place packed with prepsters tanked up on whiskey or a slew of colorful cocktails, and someone invariably starts using the pool cues as light sabers in a stumbling Star Wars reenactment.

Thankfully, Bud Light tallboys and shots of Beam specials take these former pledges away from sci-fi nerdom and back to reality, and everyone wakes up the next morning bleary eyed and sour-mouthed realizing why this glorious frat house of a bar is called The Wreck Room.

Tip from Lucas:

Remember, if you’re not playing shuffleboard with a large beer in one hand, you will anger the shuffleboard gods. This, however, is less recommended with pool unless you want to potentially maim someone.

  • Crowd

    Preppy Marina locals, ex-sorority sisters and fraternity brothers, singles looking to mingle, young professionals, gamers, fresh college grads, and area sports fans, mostly 20s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Nearly a dozen flat-screens tuned to all manner of major sporting events. Pool table. Dartboard. Shuffleboard. Pop-a-shot basketball game. Virtual boxing. Photo booth. Games like dominoes, chess, and checkers.

    Jukebox of bumping jams from Tom Petty to Lady Gaga. A cute wooden Indian in the front usually gets violated on camera by midnight.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No food, but patrons are welcome to bring in outside food. Happy Hour daily open–7pm.

  • Prices

    Beer $3–$6, wine $7+/glass, mixed drinks/cocktails $6–$11+, shots $3–$5.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Preppy casual: jeans, collared shirts, polos, jerseys, Greek-life attire, skirts, fitted sweaters.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday through Saturday nights to talk and mingle with new faces that will probably be forgotten by the morning, or weeknights for no wait on the killer games.

  • Close By

    Hyde Out (1068 California Street) right across the street offers a break from the noise, dirt-cheap beers, and a much divier atmosphere.

Bar games and beer deals, bros welcome

The main reason I like The Wreck Room is because it’s one of the few bars in San Francisco with enough space to comfortably fit a bunch of games. I’m a girl who loves playing while she parties, and this place has shuffleboard, darts, hoops, and a pool table with enough room that you can use a standard-sized cue (cough, Mauna Loa, cough). Also it has a decent selection of about 10 beers on tap and a full bar. The downside is that it can get uncomfortably humid and packed on weekends and game nights, usually by a younger crowd with a slightly fratty vibe. When it does, you might as well park yourself by the punching bag for a bro-off, because you ain’t getting on a table. At least there are decent drink deals that make a long night here more regrettable because of your actions than your spending. I mostly like The Wreck Room for weeknights of bar games or day drinking bar crawls. It has an overall chill vibe, friendly bartenders, and plenty of chances to emasculate former frat boys by kicking their asses in pool.

This place is definitely one of my favorite places for any and every occasion. Not only is it a great place to watch sports games and get caught up with the UCLA fans, but the drinks are cheap too. The Wreck Room is a fairly large space, and the decor is nice. The mirrors and nice bathrooms make it friendly for girls to feel comfortable and not feel like you're in a dump. I love love the bartenders, they are incredibly sweet and don't try to throw you your drinks and go onto the next person. Lastly, what puts this place on the top of my list is that they have shuffleboard, skee ball, pool, basketball arcade game, and more. The Wreck Room offers entertainment and cocktails for a low price!

This is a really fun bar in San Francisco! It's in a great location for bar hopping as well. There are good and well price drinks. There's a place to sit and catch up with friends, as well as games such as basketball or pool. It's a considerably big bar and full of young adults! (Pretty easy on fake ids too!)
