Dive Bars in the Mission Overview

Lost Weekend Video - Event Space in Mission, SF

Dive bars are a solid staple of the American social scene, and San Franciscans looking for some laid-back fun at unpretentious haunts will relish in the divey delights located within the Mission.

Starting in the late afternoon, the neighborhood welcomes crowds in search of a cold brew and chill vibes. Presenting a wide variety of watering holes to its patrons, Mission dive bars offer something a little different from run-of-the-mill saloons. Known for their quirky ambiance – from the retro video games at Elbo Room to the popcorn machines at Phone Booth – the area’s dives are popular destinations for locals seeking bars with character.

With free admission all night and oftentimes live music from San Francisco-based garage bands, dive bars in the Mission attract an eclectic crowd. Although a flourishing scene for hipsters and trendsetters, these drinking spots also appeal to college kids, couples, and yuppies.
