Marina / Cow Hollow, San Francisco –
An upscale restaurant for sports lovers, The Republic offers its affluent Marina clientele a place to both comfortably enjoy a game and indulge in some vivacious nightlife.
Young locals in nice jeans and Giants caps plant themselves at the zinc-topped bar for prime access to the twenty craft beers on tap, while gangs of J. Crew men throw back Happy Hour specials, argue college football, and vie for the attention of dainty girls sipping muddled cocktails.
Preppy professionals tend to gravitate toward the leather seats in the spacious dining area, taking advantage of the dim lighting to sneak peeks at the multiple TVs overhead while sharing carnitas sliders with their well-heeled dates.
Long after the game, the DJ-led club music gets kicked up and the energy rises as trendy couples pour into the bar to loosen up with rounds of mojitos and signature Cougar Juice, a concoction of acai vodka, huckleberries, agave, and mint.
Unless a few Giants have reserved the secluded lounge area, larger groups in a VIP state of mind gather beneath framed pictures of vintage city landmarks to enjoy some exclusive people-watching.
For the avid sports fan looking to catch the game in style, The Republic is the perfect place to share a microbrew with friends, cheer on a favorite team, and indulge in some stylish but rowdy revelry.
Sports fans, post-college frat types, fashionable ladies, and well-dressed tourists, early 20s to 30s, with some 40s+.
