Right off of burgeoning Polk St, R Bar sits within the walls of a brick building behind a menacing black gate. Eight bucks gets you a shot of Fernet or jameson (everyone always picks Fernet, because, SF) paired with a Bud Light tallboy. Sports are always on -- most notably R is filled with Oregon fans on Saturday and the J-E-T-S squad on Sunday during football season.
Dive bar-meets-sports bar at this friendly watering hole where more Fernet shots are poured than anywhere else in the city. (We made up that statistic, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it were actually true). Watch your game on one of nine flatscreens, especially if you’re an Oregon Ducks or Cleveland Browns fan. And especially especially if you root for our home teams. No food, but like all sports bars in SF with no food, you can always bring it in.
