SF Sake Bars Overview

Bacchus Wine & Sake Bar - Sake Bar | Wine Bar in SF

Ah, the lip-smacking joys of fermented rice. San Francisco sake bars serve up steaming hot or icy-cold carafes, bombs, and ceramic cups of this delectable Asian alcohol, a perfect pairing with fresh-from-the-sea fare or as a party-fueling libation.

Resting on Russia Hill is Bacchus Wine and Sake Bar, a tiny sipping spot tucked onto a tree-strewn block of Hyde Street where dapper patrons gently jockey for position among rotating local art. Blowfish Sushi is a sleek sake affair in the Mission, serving up chichi cocktails amid uber modern decor with a dash of sexy kitsch. The walls are lined with fancy flat-screens and anime prints, showcasing mildly erotic films and heaving Asian tatas.

Rowdy after-work and pre-party revelers head to Barracuda Sushi for a heady combination of twinkling lights, bamboo branches, and $3 sake bombs, guaranteed to wow the palate and the wallet. Giggling girlfriends, tattooed tough guys, and clean-cut professionals all vie for the window seats overlooking Market Street for some prime-time people watching, or slink to the back to watch the chefs roll their magic and watch obscure Asian music videos.

Sake bars in San Francisco add a little dash of Eastern panache to any evening. You'll be singing Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto in no time.
