The Scene

One of three catty-corner bars that make up The Triangle – the undeniable heart of the preppy Marina singles scene – Eastside West Restaurant & Bar is a quiet and stylish seafood joint for much of the week.

One of three catty-corner bars that make up The Triangle – the undeniable heart of the preppy Marina singles scene – Eastside West Restaurant & Bar is a quiet and stylish seafood joint for much of the week.

Fridays, however, see a flood of young blood start trickling in for Happy Hour, with former college frat stars snagging a stool at the well-lacquered bar for cheap bottles of Bud and a few oyster shooters. Sculpted banquettes fill the main dining room, where trendy locals prime the night with pitchers of sangria and minty mojitos, while elevated wooden tables along the windows in the adjacent room provide street views.

Although it’s likely the button-downed bros will be too concerned with the Giants’ game on the TVs and projection screen to notice the group of coeds that just walked in, such preoccupation becomes impossible by 10pm, when the venue becomes a fortified fountain of flirting, fueled by pitchers of Summer Wind and loafered revelers grooving to Top 40 and hip-hop.

Bottomless brunches on the weekends draw a crowd as well, though it’s markedly less rowdy since patrons are usually recovering from last night’s Jäger bombs.

Eastside West is only one corner of the infamous Triangle, but it’s a perfect destination to spot ‘acute’ guy or girl, be ‘complementary’, or just get ‘obtuse.’

Tip from Lucas:

Eastside West isn’t really a club, but rather a bar that gets clubby on the weekends. Even if that isn’t your scene, it’s a great spot to catch a game during the day, and their Happy Hour specials are some of the best in the Marina, price-wise.

  • Crowd

    Preppy young Marina professionals, college students, and coeds, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Several flat-screens and a large projection screen usually tuned to sports during the day and music videos at night. DJ spins Thursdays through Saturdays.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    American menu including chicken sandwiches, oysters, calamari, fish, and beef sliders. Bottomless brunch served weekends, inside dining only. Happy Hour Tu–F 4–7pm.

  • Prices

    Bottomless brunch $25. Bar menu $1–$7, appetizers $2–$16, entrées $12–$20. Beer $3–$9+, wine $7–$14/glass or $28–$69+/bottle, cocktails $8–$12, bottle service $180+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual to preppy: button-downs, khakis, skirts, designer jeans, blouses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursdays for Back on Campus Night and the crowd of recent ex-frat and sorority stars, and Fridays and Saturdays for the DJs who keep the dance floor bumping till close.

  • Close By

    Directly across the street is Balboa Cafe (3199 Fillmore Street), a classy bar and restaurant featuring American dishes that’s the perfect place for a nice meal and a few cocktails before a few hours of dancing.

Happy Birthday To Me!
Jessica D. Sep 3, 2013
I came here with some friends for my 22nd birthday after just moving to the city. This was the perfect place to go with a couple girlfriends, even though we were unfamiliar with the city and didn't have a big group of friends to go out with. The drinks were delicious, the bartenders were friendly and attentive, and the music was good for a night out. The crowd was young, which was great, because we were able to mingle with some other people our age. Downside: It was extremely crowded inside, which didn't leave much room for moving around or dancing. Side Note: If you don't want to wait in line, come before 10pm!
Great time!

I've been here a few times and I've always had a great time! Its close to a few other great bars so I would highly recommend coming here for a night out. The drinks are great and the bartenders are really friendly too. I like Eastside West because its definitely a younger crowd and it's really easy to meet people here. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area!
Good Location

Eastside West is a fun place to go to for drinks. Although the food isn't anything spectacular, the atmosphere is fun, especially at night. If you are looking to have a fun night in San Francisco, I suggest going to Eastside West because it is right next to all of the other fun bars that most of the younger crowd goes to. Although it does get extremely crowded at times, this bar has a fun vibe and also great music and dancing.
