San Francisco Bars, Restaurants, Clubs, Nightlife, and Events

San Francisco is full of citizens who swear by their ability to inspire social change, whether it’s through the latest Silicon Valley tech innovation or another progressive movement that brings everybody out to protest or proclaim their beliefs.

And while the people are rattling social mores, they are also enjoying their city’s pervasive social scene, from a nightlife lubricated by Napa Valley’s famous wine, to a strong bar and restaurant culture buoyed by a sizable international demographic.

Things to do during the day also abound, as the parks, beaches, and stunning architecture buzz with the crowds that make the city a top tourist destination, and the outdoor areas are consistently watched over by the ever-vigilant San Franciscans, who care as much about the sanctity of open space as they do about the latest anti-corporate petition.

Unique and refined, fun-loving and hedonistic, San Francisco is the sort of place that inspires strong opinions. Its people revel in pushing social boundaries, and celebrate that fact on a daily basis between their days at outdoor events, festivals, and parades, and their nights at bars, clubs, live music venues, and lounges.

Whether people think of this town as the capital of forward thinking, a tourist paradise, or just another big city with lots of “stuff,” one thing is sure: it doesn’t take much time to have an experience here that makes people say, either with a smile or a shrug, “Only in San Francisco.”
