When you go into any new major city you probably have a pretty high standard for the bar scene. You expect great drinks, but you also expect a great atmosphere, fun people, and a few awesome memories. I live in the San Francisco area so in my opinion, the best bars in San Francisco offer all of the above. Every time I go out on a bar crawl I meet great people, have awesome drinks, and I couldn’t even tell you all of the memories I’ve made! Since I live in San Francisco people are always asking me which bars they should check out. These are the ones that I consider to be the best bars in San Francisco.
Ready for the best bars in San Francisco? They’re ready for you.
Keep in mind these are in no particular order! I’m basically just spouting these out and I have no preference of one over the other. If I did have a preference, I wouldn’t tell you because I want you to go to them all!
Smuggler’s Cove | Fillmore
Want to drink like a pirate minus the dirty clothes and people? Smuggler’s Cove has three levels, though they’re all pretty small. Still it’s a fun atmosphere and since you’ll be standing so close to other people, you’re sure to make a few new friends.
