We love a wine bar, but sometimes they feel just a little too intimate. Not the case with Tofino Wines, whose 2,500sqft of space includes 20ft-high ceilings, a 32-seat bar area, and an entire wine shop featuring 500+ carefully chosen wines, including a dynamic selection of Champagne and sherry. Come in, grab a seat, order one of 10 wines by the glass, six wines on tap, or three beers on tap (Almanac, Fort Point, and Deschutes), and snack on burrata, sardine pâté, or a charcuterie plate. Perfect for a date. Or, you know, just drinking really good wine.
The Best Wine Bars in San Francisco
With more than 1,200 wines available in the 2,500-square-foot bottom level of a former car dealership, Tofino Wines is an impressive and friendly retail shop-wine bar hybrid. With an emphasis on small, family-run estates in Europe and California, you’ll find that the owners favor Champagne and sherry. An earth-toned tiled motif graces the stairway arch and accents above the marble bar, lending an old-world feel that feels airy when the natural daylight floods through the huge windows. Snacks include tinned fish, burrata, and marcona almonds.
