    San Francisco South of Market

    RN74

    301 Mission San Francisco CA 94105
    The hotly awaited wine bar from Michael Mina features an impressive wine list from many countries as well as France, where you'll find the highway running through Burgundy after which the place is named. We prefer the bar menu to the dining room menu (some dishes are available on both). More

    San Francisco Embarcadero

    Pier 23 Cafe

    Pier 23 San Francisco CA 94111
    Its location on the Embarcadero - smack dab in the midpoint between the Ferry Building to Fisherman's Wharf - makes Pier 23 a draw for tourists seeking refreshment as well as locals who want to catch live music by the bay. Fried oysters, peel-and-eat prawns, cracked crab, and an excellent More

    Luka's Taproom & Lounge

    2221 Broadway Oakland CA 94612
    With everything else going on at Luka's -- pool, pinball, DJs, dancing, art openings, 16 beers on tap at the full bar -- it seems astonishing that the happening spot (which took the place of an aging Hofbrau) should also have a happening kitchen, but it does. Serious sandwiches (flank More

    1015 Folsom San Francisco CA 94103
    415-991-1015
    A central hub of S.F.'s dance scene, 1015 boasts three enormous dance floors, an internationally renowned roster of DJs, and a guaranteed late-night party. Depending on your musical tastes, you might find yourself in one of several sub-clubs housed within the facility, including the low-slung front room (with its glowing More
    103 Harriet San Francisco CA 94103
    415-431-1200
    103 Harriet (aka 1015 Folsom: The Remix) is essentially the same venue as its more famous big brother on Folsom Street, except you enter around the corner on Harriet Street and, depending on the event, your chosen DJ/performer will be in a different dance area than the main room. Generally More
    111 Minna San Francisco CA 94105
    415-974-1719
    An art gallery/nightclub/bar, this South of Market venue shows films, hosts DJs, gets people drunk -- all in a sleek atmosphere where pretty people come to play. 111 Minna's two rooms, each with its own liquor service counter, can host separate simultaneous events, or they can act as one large More
    1300 Fillmore St. San Francisco CA 94115
    415-771-7100
    Refined New American cooking, using French techniques and Southern accents, in a comfortable dark-brown room in the revitalized Fillmore Preservation Jazz District. Occasional live jazz in the adjacent bar and lounge room (pleasantly audible in the dining room) reminds you of the street's heritage (as does a dazzling wall of More
    15 Romolo Place San Francisco CA 94133
    415-398-1359
    Aaron Smith's rejiggered 15 Romolo has developed magnetic powers, attracting even those who'd rather avoid the North Beach crowds. The dim bar hits the perfect balance of Barbary Coast and design boutique, flavored with a few drops of rockabilly dive. The bartenders switch up their featured drinks frequently, so it's More
    1601 Howard St. San Francisco CA 94103
    415-552-1601
    17 Broadway Blvd. Fairfax CA 94930

    415-624-3140
    98 Turk St. San Francisco CA 94102-2808
    415-771-9655
    The 21 Club is one of the last remaining bastions of Tenderloin dive bar living. This small liquor den -- located at the untouristy intersection of Turk and Taylor -- serves stiff drinks and frothy beers to a diverse crowd of both grizzled old-timers and bohemian youth. The walls are More
    563 2nd St. San Francisco CA 94107
    415-369-0900
    Its name celebrates the repeal of Prohibition, so it's no surprise that 21st Amendment's brewpub is the opposite of a secret subterranean speakeasy: with its large windows, bright wood accents, and open floorplan, this South Park restaurant and microbrewery couldn't be more forthright about its upscale, beer-loving raison d'être. The More
    23 Visitacion Ave. Brisbane CA 94005
    415-468-3080
    3024 Mission St. San Francisco CA 94110
    415-826-7378
    3300 Mission San Francisco CA 94110
    415-826-6886
    A mellow, laid back watering hole, the 3300 Club touts itself as a true neighborhood bar. On any weekday you can find Slayer, Lynyrd Skynyrd, or Johnny Cash streaming from the jukebox and metalheads and old barflies alike nodding along. This is a no-frills bar where they pour stiff drinks More
    3000 Broadway Oakland CA 94611
    510-465-2569
    440 Castro San Francisco CA 94114
    415-621-8732
    It's a leather/bear/rough-trade kind of place for the older and manly kind of gay - one of the last standing relics of the Castro's bygone days. Its Thursday weekly "CDXL," however, has the too-cool kids tearing the place apart to mash-up and disco beats. More
    414 Mason San Francisco CA 94102
    415-693-0777
    Not really a separate venue so much as a separate room behind the Ruby Skye balcony, this is a new event space where Ruby Skye's smoking lounge used to be: they walled up the exterior windows, ditched the pool table, tore up the carpet and added some danceable floor surfacing. More
    50 Mason San Francisco CA 94102
    415-433-5050
    Located at the confluence of the Union Square, Tenderloin, and Mid-Market neighborhoods, the upscale 50 Mason Social House mostly shuns the latter two demographics in a bid to attract well-to-do travelers and moneyed downtown crowds. This former comedy club has reformulated itself as a fancy beer-and-wine establishment suffused with vintage-aristocrat More
    500 Guerrero San Francisco CA 94110
    415-861-2500
    The 500 Club is a lounge in the old-fashioned meaning of the term: rather than pimping sleek modern furniture and slick modern cocktails, this longtime Mission District standby features retro leather booths, back-to-basics drinks, and classic rock 'n' country on the jukebox. Sadly, the pool table is no more -- More
    540 Clement San Francisco CA 94118
    415-752-7276
    Haute and hardcore at the same time, the 540 Club is a place where drinkers of many social classes can commingle comfortably: this Inner Richmond hangout often features punk rock on the stereo and custom low-brow art on the walls, while the vintage setting feels like a private men's club More
    3255 Lakeshore Oakland CA 94610
    510-832-3242
    2800 Bayshore Brisbane CA 94005
    415-467-2343
    724 Geary San Francisco CA 94109
    415-885-3192
    800 Larkin San Francisco CA 94109
    415-567-9326
    800 Larkin is a Tenderloin lounge trying hard not to be a dive bar. It has a pool table, good selection of spirits and draft beers, internet jukebox, TV streaming various sports, chatty female bartenders, and enough plush leather seating to host a small gathering. It also lacks a bouncer More
    83 First St. San Francisco CA 94105
    415-296-8383
    This is a bar that takes its cocktails very seriously. The bartenders are alchemist savants, thumbing through their comprehensive knowledge of spirits and herbs, veggies, and fruits to design your perfect drink. You tell them what flavors you like and they'll build a cocktail to match. Throwing some muscle into More
