    Check their Facebook page for offers on a selection of wines, a few times a week. Great atmosphere: brick, leather, wood, nice music. Good wine selection and simple but delicious small plates.

    Hotel Bîron is a wine bar and art gallery featuring local art, foreign wines, and rich cheese in the heart of SF. The perfect place to relax with friends and pretend to be very sophisticated. Read more

    Great little hideaway, down-to-earth wine bar (they have beer too). Perfect for the wine hippies & bohemians who don't want the high-end District / Press Club scene. Good prices, curated selection.

    Is your idea of the perfect bar one that's comfortable, romantic and vaguely European? There's something about this tucked-away space and stone walls that make you never want to leave. Read more

    I found my spot for wine in SF! Their wine list is the best I've seen (great variety & they have wines from one of my favorite importers - Louis Dressner). Amazing date spot too!

    The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about wine. They will guide you to the right glass for you. The ambiance is perfect for a date night, definitely not a group.

    Great hard to find wines. The cheese plate is awesome. Ask the bartender what is good and check the board for specials.

    There's a delicious bottle of crisp yet robust white wine that's just been added to the list. It's a Savenniere from Nicholas Jollie (Chenin blanc grape). $62 makes is a good value and it is superb.

    SOMA might be seeing more openings as of late, but we have to agree that Hayes Valley has a certain breezy charm. A. List tip? Start civilized with some cheese pairings at the Hôtel Biron. Read more

    Go to Hotel Biron, ask Chris for a recommendation on a nice bottle, get a cheese plate with Blue Cheese/Honey and the Triple Cream, play a game of cribbage and enjoy the best wine bar in SF

    Great hidden gem. Good wine list and a delish cheese plate. Take in the rotating art and sip on a glass of wine.

    Pair cheese from the menu with the wine of your choice... And ask the bartender what the deal is with the Shake Weight on display :)

    The diminutive space creates intimacy and romance for hip wine drinkers. I'll toast to the Viña Enebro Quercus Red 🍷

    A narrow space ideal for intimate conversation, replete with copper tables, wrought-iron bistro chairs and zinc-green walls boasting revolving exhibitions of local art. But the real draw is the wine. Read more

    Vibe is romantic & secretive. Get the full spread–cheese, meat, fruit, olives & chocolate-to pair with your wine. Tuck into the back room for privacy, but take note that's also where bathrooms are.
