    The Hideout at Dalva - Cocktail Bar | Speakeasy in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review A covert bar inside another bar, The Hideout is a classy alternative to the neighboring dives that dominate 16th Street, including Dalva, the very one it’s hidden behind. Small groups of young professionals plow through the long room that makes up Dalva, past the horse painting and projection screen showing silent films ... more

    Dave's - Dive Bar | Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review A cozy neighborhood Giants haunt located in the midst of a sea of hotels and offices, Dave’s attracts a varied clientele with its affordable grub and heavy-handed drink specials.

    Greens Sports Bar - Sports Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Eighteen beers on tap, TVs all around, and walls covered with photos, posters, clippings, and anything else related to sports all combine to make Greens Sports Bar one of the city’s most dedicated houses of worship to the holy trinity of baseball, football, and basketball. Hockey, golf, soccer, and probably even horseshoes ... more

    Tradition - Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review An old-school cocktail den intended to celebrate the American bar, Tradition walks the line between a private tavern for SF’s coolest clientele and an in-vogue saloon for those who just want a quick ‘n’ proper drink. Run by the same guys behind speakeasy Bourbon & Branch, the bar features the requisite barren façade and ... more

    The Ramp - Bar | Restaurant in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Harbored on an industrial waterfront stretch of Dogpatch, The Ramp (not so) quietly serves up lots of seafood and suds amid the squalls of seagulls and salty air. Perched right against the docks, the venue’s palm tree- and umbrella-strewn patio is usually filled with a slew of alfresco-lovin’ patrons, who while away the ... more

    The Wreck Room - Sports Bar | Arcade in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review 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 ... more

SF’s variety of nightlife extends well beyond its world-famous famous food, as city denizens are equally enthusiastic when it comes to the myriad lounges and bars and clubs in San Francisco. Happy Hour-happy hipsters flood the mixology hotspots, wine-centric lounges, and gastropubs that line Misson and Valencia Streets in the Mission and dive bar-lovers have plenty to play with in the lower Haight.

On the other end of the spectrum, post-grads prep it up in the upscale Marina meat-market or join bar-hoppers along Polk Street in Russian Hill, while in The Castro, a plethora of bars and pubs waving rainbow flags cater to a vibrant gay community, but are welcoming to all stripes.

And then of course there’s the wine culture, no doubt influenced by some of the greatest wineries in the world located a mere hour’s drive north in Napa Valley. Young professionals and discerning students dip into wine flights and straight-from-the-barrel glasses at cozy neighborhood dens all over town, while trendy ladies and wealthy finance executives sip sophisticated new varietals at swanky Downtown lounges and hotel bars.

When it comes to nightclubs, San Francisco nightlife isn’t exactly exploding with options, but there are still some dance-heavy bars and clubs Downtown and in the formerly industrial SoMa that cater to both the see-and-be-seen crowd and the electro DJ lovers.
