Downtown / Financial District, San Francisco –
Tucked a few blocks away from its bustling Downtown namesake, Union Square Sports Bar is a safe haven for sports lovers fleeing a shopping trip and tourists looking to escape the crowds.
Dimly lit by neon sports logos and beer signs, the long bar tends to fill up with office types and nearby hotel guests in the early evening, although the venue’s proximity to the sometimes gritty Tenderloin promises a daily mix of budget conscious college kids and the kind of people who keep security busy at the door.
Conventioneers from the Moscone Center a few blocks south file in with their swag bags for a few domestics before calling it a day, while unfussy young professionals take over the pair of pool tables and the boxing game in the back.
Several TVs mounted on the exposed brick walls keep fans glued to their metal stools on big game days, and – as with most sports bars in town – the joint sees its biggest crowds when the Giants or the 49ers are on the field.
A relaxed haunt for Downtown workers and tourists in need of a hotel bar reprieve, Union Square Sports Bar is a no-nonsense dive for pool, pitchers, and professionals sports.
Mix of casual college students, young professionals, sports-loving tourists, and older neighborhood locals, early 20s to 40s+.
