Located in the Mission District, B & M is a popular live music venue, and they aren't too bad at serving up cold drinks either.
Triple Voodoo’s bartenders will fill 32oz and 64oz growlers that are either dark colored glass or stainless steel (and comply with all other ABC regulations), so head in to try and take home beers from their 16 rotating taps, including their signature IPAs and flagship Inception Belgian Tripel. If you don’t own a growler, you can buy one of theirs for $8. Fills range from between $11 and $13 for 32oz growlers and $18-$20 for 64oz growlers, depending on the style of beer.
Located in the Mission, these guys serve up steaming hot 'za in pie or slice form.
The most notable thing about this Mission Mexican is the vivid and eccentric interior, and for some reason, it makes sense that their tacos are as creative and untraditional as the decor. The panko avocado taco is a crispy and creamy dream and the fish tacos are good no matter what the catch of the day is. Loló is a great option for a group dinner because it's totally possible to order everything on the menu to share.
This Russian Hill outpost of the small San Francisco brew chain slings a variety of Woods' experimental beers, most notably its MateVeza, a unique IPA made with yerba mate. A rotating selection of other adventurous ales -- all produced in small batches -- are also available alongside fresh, locally-made empanadas from El Porteño.
This beer bar in Nob Hill prides itself on California beer. In honor of California being the thirty-first state, Hopwater has a rotating tap of 31 beers from the Golden State's 400-plus breweries. The list is updated almost nightly and includes tried-and-true favorites and brews you've likely never tried before. There's a fair selection of bar fare too, like fried chicken sandwiches, steak fries, and pulled pork sliders.
Horner's is an American sports bar that knows exactly how to dish out the best of grub, brew, and vibe.
Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar is a sushi and sake oasis in the Outer Mission outfitted with a giant mural that tells you how to eat sushi. Ni Bar operates much like an izakaya with sake, shochu, and small plates like yuzu chicken wings and miso eggplant. Ichi, on the other hand, keeps the San Francisco ethos in mind with a sustainable and seasonal menu of raw fish, but doesn't skimp on anything delicious. The chef's choice is one of the best omakase deals in the city.
