Best Marijuana Smoking Lounge 

Bernal Heights Collective

Back in the day, about 10 or so years ago, there was another term used for where the kids today go to buy weed: "cannabis clubs." The term conjures up a sort of non-exclusive Pacific Union, where marijuana users can make friends over a shared joint and compare notes over various strains of OG, or simply have a place to sit and chill rather without worrying about irritating the neighbors or exposing the kids playing in the park to your secondhand smoke. (Trust us: Moms don't want to hear about marijuana's benefits.) There are a couple such actual clubs left in San Francisco — for now — and the oldest and most comfortable by far is Bernal Heights'. You need no more than a few bucks to score a pre-roll from the counter, and if dabbing is more your thing, there's ample seating to sink in after you've blown your mind. Once upon a time, this was what cannabis was all about: good vibes, reflection, and community. The club is having trouble with its new landlord, so shake a leg on out before the good times are gone.
