    Though founded as a lesbian-friendly establishment, Wild Side West draws all Bernal Heights residents for its saloon-like vibe, live music, fireplace and quirky garden out back. Read more

    Behind the main bar, there's a patio with a few nooks and crannies for starters, but descend the stairs into a wonderland of berzerk sculptures, lovely gardens, benches and bench swings. Read more

    The "view" at this institution is untraditional, but it has a secret garden-slash-backyard filled with hidden corners, leafy benches and groups of friends whiling away a weekend day. Read more

    People. Drinks. Vibe. Ambiance.

    One can find secret and standout sculptures peeking out through the greenery, making it the perfect spot for a pint of beer and (if the mood should strike) some psychedelic mushrooms. Read more

    One of the first bars I went to in SF when I moved in 2003. Probably one of the best backyards ever. It feels like Alice In Wonderland and someone will probably give you weed.

    Spend some time in the back downstairs patio. Awesome art and an urban oasis.

    Bartender was extremely irritable and made me feel like I wasn't welcome. As a straight male, that was kind of what I was afraid of.

    The quirky, mishmash decor, including a shrine to women's shoes, is a hoot, and the secret garden out back is downright magical. Don't miss the pint-size Bloody Mary.

    Arnold Palmer Press is perfect on a sunny afternoon. I also highly recommend you check out their secret garden :-)

    Great hangout. Good prices and the Patio rocks eclectic. You will want to take a cab coming and going.
