    Fat Angel - Restaurant | Wine Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Part of Fat Angel’s name stems from the fact that much of the interior was salvaged from an old church, and part probably stems from the impish cherub statue above its door, no doubt fattened up by the handpicked wine and beer on the menu. Stamped tin ceilings and a hundred-year-old wooden bar-back combine with marble countertops ... 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

    Specs’ 12 Adler Museum Café - Dive Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Frozen in a state of perpetual disorder, Specs’ 12 Adler Museum Café is a chaotically-themed little dive where North Beach’s historic Beat vibe lives on. With its ramshackle furniture and disorganized collection of city history, Specs’ is a bohemian paradise that’s worlds away from the porn peddlers and strip joints just ... more

    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

    The Homestead - Bar in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review On the frontier between ongoing gentrification in The Mission and the growing post-industrial rebirth of neighboring Potrero Hill lies The Homestead, a classic saloon right down to the ragged piano and iron pot-bellied stove crackling in the corner. A hardwood bar with an ancient cash register leaves just enough space ... more

    Rickhouse - Cocktail Bar | Lounge in San Francisco.

    Party Earth Review Smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood better known for its high-end shopping and big-name corporations, Rickhouse is an artisanal cocktail lounge that caters to both demanding mixology nerds and overworked financial types. Business people find after-work solace in the extensive drinks menu, either with regular favorites ... 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.
