While You're Waiting
Take in the bar's baseball memorabilia, which ranges from first baseman's gloves to actual scorecards from games played decades ago. In fact, the bar opened in 1909 across from what was then Seals Stadium, a minor-league ballpark where seals often played by balancing mitts on their noses.
Where to Sit
Every seat in the house affords great views of the bar's eight high-definition televisions and 61-inch big-screen projector, which collectively tune into the day's biggest games.
What to Drink
Nearly 40 beers flow from taps and bottles, while plenty of wines, vodkas, tequilas, and single-malt scotches line the bar.
When to Go
Anytime between 4 p.m. and closing, when happy hour prices knock Budweiser down to $3 and PBR to $2.
Double Play's restaurant only serves dinner Wednesday–Friday until 9 p.m. Otherwise, food service ends at 3 p.m., so don't arrive with an empty stomach.
While You’re in the Neighborhood:
Before: Peruse the stunning photographs of natural landscapes and US cities taken by acclaimed photographer Jeff Chen Kuo Chih at Vista Point Studio & Gallery (405 Florida Street).
After: Keep the fun going by cutting a rug or two at Mighty (119 Utah Street), a dance club that regularly hosts live DJs.
