With an abundance of wine bars, lounges, nightclubs, brewpubs, coffee shops and more, you’ll never go thirsty in San Francisco. And while everyone’s got their faves, here are a few that regularly fly under the radar. Join us as we explore the secret bars of San Francisco

BOURBON & BRANCH — 501 Jones Street

Perhaps San Francisco’s best-known well-kept secret, Bourbon & Branch is a speakeasy-style lounge that requires booking in advance via Doing so will get you a password which you can then use to enter. Once inside, try their old-school cocktails and be amongst some of San Fran’s coolest.

15 ROMOLO — 15 Romolo Place

Venture into the alley and be rewarded with some of San Francisco’s best cocktails at 15 Romolo. Order some food to share until 1:30 AM or simply enjoy expertly created cocktails, both vintage and contemporary. Check them out for Saturday and Sunday brunch as well.

DALVA — 3121 16th Street

If you’re in the Mission District, Dalva is the place to get killer cocktails made with care. While Dalva features a fully loaded jukebox and a great vibe, there’s more in store. The Hideout is located in the back of Dalva, and has a mellow vibe reflected in the ambiance and the music. While you’re there, try the grapefruit soda cocktail, it’s divine.
