    Vegans: Ask them to hold the worsteshire & horseradish (it has egg in it). That’ll make it 100% herbivorous. Hell, you could feed that drink to your brachiosaurus 🦕‼️ what’s more? it’s only $5!!

    Check out "SF's No. 1 Beer Garden" which offers a charm that just can't be duplicated. Bring a light sweater, snag a picnic bench outside, and feast on pitchers of beer and tamales. Read more

    While it's changed quite a bit in the last six or so years — no longer is a bad look at a bartender enough to get you tossed out — the wonderful Bloody Marys have remained the same. Read more

    Day Drinking. Popular mission biker bar with large outdoor beer garden and BBQ, great for sunny day drinking. Great Bloody Mary’s. Motto: “Warm Beer, Cold Women”.

    It is nice to sit outside with a friend for a beer in the afternoon. It can be a little cliquey here, but mostly nice enough. They have so many beers on tap, there's something for everyone.

    The bloody mary is award-winning, getting the nod from both SF Weekly and The SF Bay Guardian (RIP). It’s classic but bold and garnished to the brim with pickled goodies. Read more

    great beer garden type of place to chill with a cold one on a warm day. plenty of shade, unlike the open Biergarten. immensely popular, so get comfortable with the (mostly hipster) crowd and noise.

    Probably the best open bar place to hang out with friends amongst noisy crowded ambience. Smoking is allowed too. Try the burning daylight.

    No list of Bay Area bars worth visiting is complete without this staple. So much bench seating you're almost guaranteed to get a spot where you can soak up that vitamin D with your drink. Read more

    Perhaps my favorite bar in life. Slight anarchist vibe, mixed with cheap (for SF) drinks, plus a killer outdoor area makes for a fabulous daytime drinking spot.

    This bar has become a faux dive. Most of the people that come in are slumming it for the day. I miss when this was a real dive,now everyone is a techbro incognito.

    Hammer in some ultra bonuses w/ Slayer at yer back and a double whiskey coke in yer head, impressing all the punks and hard fuckers on the Attack From Mars and World Cup Soccer tables. 75¢ a play!

    There is a bike rack on the patio so you can bring your bike inside rather than locking it up on the street.

    Take a look at its extensive & impressive draft beer list—almost all of which is available by the pitcher. Fair warning: Drinking Total Domination IPA by the pitcher ($19) is dangerous, if delicious. Read more

    Great when your want a low-key dive bar, with an outdoor patio. One of the few bars that still have that vibe that SF used to have before the tech boom hit

    CASH ONLY. NO PHOTOS/VIDEOS. Besides that, the guys are completely nice jerks. Hang by the bar and get to know them, they have so many hilarious things and stories to talk about.

    A place where bikers, punks and other misfits used to hang. The music and decor is still. Otherwise taken over by Patagonia vest wearing techbros like rest of the City.

    Zeitgeist is bustling with some of the best beers and burgers in town (keep an eye out for the Tamale Lady for a great late-night snack). Looking to go hard? Order a "double beer." Thank us later. Read more

    Dive bar with a surprisingly large (and crowded) back yard. Over a dozen taps, and grilled cheese sandwiches. A trendier crowd shows up on the weekends.

    If you find that you cross faded wrong, the ladies bathroom is a perfect place to bring a friend, lay your hues down and have her play with your hair till the room stops spinning.

    Whatever cultures collided to bring a beer garden, a BBQ pit, and a biker bar together did it right. Snag a Spaten Premium Lager. It sticks with your ribs. And there will be a lot of ribs.

    Last time we sat out back at this biker bar—cycles not hogs—we played a game of poker with strangers. It was just another night at the picnic table-filled backyard at this Mission District stalwart.

    SF: A real biker bar with heart. It’s the last bastion of the pre dot-com rebel/artist. Park benches on a dirt lot; it's like drinking in a junkyard and is one of SF's most loved hangouts. -IFC Staff
