  • Dogpatch Saloon
    Dogpatch Saloon: A User’s Guide Dog-Friendly Bar | Seasonal Cocktails | Craft Beer | Extensive Liquor Selection | Occasional Live Music Sample Drinks Spirit: Whipnose Whiskey Beer: Pac Brew Lab's Whipnose IPA Cocktail: Zapoteca—roasted-fennel-infused mezcal, lemon juice, agave nectar, and sparkling wine By the Numbers 1912—the year the saloon opened 12 craft cocktails 10 beers on tap Nearly infinite number of spirits A Bar Reborn: In 2013, new owners took over Dogpatch Saloon, and they remodeled from floor to ceiling. They also added decor elements that echo the city’s industrial roots, namely an old Muni track—made by Bethlehem Steel—that now serves as the bar’s rail. They left a couple of the old bar’s elements, including the brass bell used for last call and the familiar stained-glass window that welcomes patrons inside. While You’re Waiting: Listen to owner and bartender Marc Goldfine. He’s a trained voice actor, and his resonate tones carry throughout the bar and directly into his patrons’ hearts. Inside Tips Bring a furry friend. True to its name, the bar welcomes dogs. Follow Dogpatch on Twitter to stay up-to-date on new beers, drinks, and spirits. Praise Eater included Dogpatch Saloon on their list of SF Bartenders' Favorite Spots to Drink. After the remodel, Thrillist called this “the best bar on the right side of San Francisco.” While You’re in the Neighborhood: Try the fried chicken at Hard Knox Cafe (2526 3rd Street). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: 83 Proof (83 1st Street), the owners’ other bar.

  • Toronado
    Toronado: A User’s Guide Craft Beers | Drafts and Cans | Early-Afternoon Hours | Outside Food Welcome | Nationally Renowned Dive Bar Sample Drinks Double IPA: Russian River’s Pliny the Elder Barleywine: Anchor’s Old Foghorn Dark lager: Moonlight’s Death & Taxes Soft drink: Lost Coast Draught Root Beer When to Go: Try planning your visit to coincide with the the annual Barleywine Festival, when bartenders devote all of their taps to this strong, fruity ale. While You’re Waiting: Scan the menu that hangs above the bar. It’s best to have an order in mind by the time you reach the bartender—the staff can be a touch surly. By the Numbers More than 50 microbrews About 100 bottled beers The Vibe: Toronado definitely gives off a divey vibe. Its walls are covered with antique beer signs, and old draft handles look down from the ceiling like the ghosts of pints past. Inside Tips Toronado lets patrons bring in outside food. Make a beeline for the ATM since this bar only accepts cash. Come earlier in the day to beat the large crowds. In the Press Anthony Bourdain visited the bar for his show The Layover, saying “daytime drinking is a tradition here, as it is in any great city. Esquire magazine calls Toronado’s drinks “hardcore.” While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Order a bratwurst at Rosamunde Sausage Grill (545 Haight Street), and bring it with you to the bar. After: Take a class in night photography or darkroom techniques at Harvey Milk Photo Center (50 Scott Street). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Play pinball between beers at Lucky 13 (2140 Market Street).

  • Urban Tavern
    The Three Faces of Urban Tavern Gastropub Cuisine Urban Tavern’s mission is as simple as its food is inventive: to incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients—most of which come from sources within 100 miles of the kitchen—into its menu of reimagined American classics. The result: breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus with familiar dishes imbued with new twists and distinct flavors. The sausage-and-pretzel appetizer, for instance, promises a spicy grilled Caggiano beer sausage with sauerkraut and a housemade soft pretzel. The fish and chips dish features Pacific cod that’s battered in Anchor Steam, and is served with Yukon chips or cucumber-fennel slaw. The theme carries over into breakfast classics—in addition to a breakfast buffet, chefs prepare a rum-raisin french toast and frittatas with Laura Chenel goat cheese and red bliss potatoes. Local Beer and Creative Cocktails The Lounge at Urban Tavern is like the main restaurant’s laid-back little brother. The Lounge shares many of the same dishes as the main restaurant, plus pub snacks like eggplant sliders and spiced nuts, and features a bar stocked with Bay Area–brewers like Mad River and Pyramid Brewing. Mixologist Gerard Miller and his team, meanwhile, kick out specialty cocktails for the post-work or pre-theater crowd: there’s the Spanish Manhattan with Bulliet Bourbon, and the Pisco Fug Cutter, a blend of Meyers’s dark rum, orgeat liquor, and Harvey’s Bristol Cream spiced with muddled jalapeño. The Lounge also features California wines and desserts like the Valrhona chocolate pot de creme, which is made with toffee caramel, graham streusel, and toasted marshmallow. Reclaimed Tree-Tables and Steel Horses The first thing that will likely catch your eye is artist Doug Owen’s horse statue, a life-sized rendering constructed from welded tractor, motorcycle, and car parts. But a second glance around Urban Tavern’s dining room reveals the smaller details, which are equally as deliberate and artful. Donna Scala and Gensler Design channeled Urban Tavern’s green missive by using salvaged and reclaimed materials for the interior. The best example is the communal dining table, which was crafted from a fallen tree. But there’s also the reclaimed wooden ceiling beams, the exposed concrete, and the maple-topped bar, all of which echo the chefs’ abilities to re-imagine familiar cuisine as something new.

  • The Chieftain Irish Pub
    Piperade: A User’s Guide Basque Country Cuisine | Famous Chef | Renowned Wine List | Small Plates Sample Menu Ttipiak (appetizer): warm sheep's mil cheese with ham terrine and aged sherry Haundiak (entrée): roasted chicken breast with chickpeas and chorizo almond salpicon Goxokiak (dessert): orange blossom beignets What to Drink Piperade’s wine list is renowned, with many considering it amongst the best regional lists in San Francisco. Assembled by master sommelier Emmanuel Kemjii, it features wines from across the Basque region, as well as some from California. Behind the Name Piperade is actually the name of a traditional Basque stew made of peppers, tomatoes, and garlic topped with a poached egg and hunks of ham. Who's Cooking: Chef-owner Gerald Hirigoyen, who grew up in France and began cooking as an apprentice in Paris at the tender age of 13. Since moving to the Bay Area more than 30 years ago, he’s been named “Chef of the Year” by San Francisco Magazine , and in 2006, was nominated for a James Beard Award. Inside Tips Though there isn’t a dress code, this is not the place to bust out your tuxedo T-shirt—it’s a good idea to arrive looking nice. The kitchen creates one traditional Basque special everyday—be sure to check beforehand in case one of these strikes your fancy. There’s is a large central table at the restaurant’s center, ideal for larger parties and communal dining. Get it to Go You can enjoy Piperade while on-the-move by stopping into their to-go shop in Williams-Sonoma’s Icehouse Valley. Here, you’ll be able to stock up on soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries, and specialty coffee drinks—most of which is organic. If You Can’t Make It, Try This Mimic Chef Hirigoyen’s techniques in your own kitchen by picking up one of his three cookbooks, such as Pintxos, which was published in 2009 and focuses on tapas-style dishes.

  • Social Kitchen & Brewery
    Social Kitchen and Brewery: A User’s Guide Housemade Microbrews | Beer as Seasoning | Southern Meets Asian | Cocktails and Beertails Sample Menu To share: brussels-sprout chips Small plate: mac & cheese with truffle oil Entree: Social burger with blue cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, and a side of tempura-battered sweet-potato fries To drink: Rapscallion golden belgian beer When to Go Happy hour (4 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays) means discounted craft beers, well drinks, and bar bites. Nurse a hangover with weekend brunch, during which you can savor pork-belly fried rice or brioche french toast. Just bring some aspirin—the live music tends to get a little loud. Vocab Lesson Belgian red ale: Different from an irish red ale, the belgian version has a distinctly sour taste produced by fermentation with lactobacilli and long aging periods in oak barrels, which also give it a wine-like character. Sisig: Filipino for “sour snack,” the most common form of this dish consists of pork marinated in vinegar or citrus, and then flavored with savory seasonings. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Marvel at the thousands of novelty pins in every imaginable shape and slogan at Oriental Art Gallery (1340 9th Avenue). After: Head to Urban Bazaar (1371 9th Avenue) for an evening class in crafts such as crochet and printmaking, or bring a growler to the monthly Stitch ‘n’ Bitch gathering. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Longtime Social chef Christopher Wong created the menu at Blueprint Tap Room (680 8th Street)—the concept’s similar, although the beers aren’t made in-house.

  • Liberties Irish Bar & Restaurant

When to Go: For discounted cocktails and snacks, such as beer battered onion rings or pulled pork quesadillas, head in during happy hour, which occurs Monday–Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.. Inside Tip: The kitchen stays open to 1 a.m. every night, so feel free to head in for a snack after a second shift or late-night jewelry heist. While You’re Waiting: Scan the very top shelf of the bar for Guinness-related memorabilia, including vintage posters and an actual antique harp. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Feed your cultural appetite while working up an actual food-related one during a trip to Little Tree Gallery (3412 22nd Street), where contemporary artists of all mediums show off their stuff.
