SF After Hours Overview

Barracuda Sushi - Bar | Japanese Restaurant in SF

The cutoff time for serving alcohol in California is 2am, meaning last call happens closer to 1:30am. But there are still plenty of people who aren’t ready to fluff their pillows after the bartender gives them the boot.

The crown jewel of after hours in San Francisco is quite likely The Endup, which has called SoMa home since 1973. With its thumping bass beats that can be heard down the block, this nightclub rocks straight from Saturday evening until Monday morning. Even if revelers can’t drink all night, at least they can dance.

For a late-night scene in San Francisco where the 18+ crowd flocks, Ruby Skye in the Downtown/Financial District welcomes big-name DJs from around the world for an EDM spinfest that lasts until 4am on the weekends.
Those who aren’t looking to shake their booties when the night is winding down, but rather fill their stomachs, have options all over town.

A popular after-hour food joint that features a dash of South Bay history is The Grubstake up in Nob Hill, which is open 5pm to 4am every day of the week. Those down in Castro have a couple 24-hour diners with Sparky’s and Orphan Andy's. Between those two areas is 24-hour spot Cafe Mason in Civic Center/Tenderloin, which boasts homemade food from scratch.
