Wild Side West

Tucked snugly in a Bernal Heights Victorian, Wild Side West is a second home to many city locals. Although it is primarily a gay/lesbian bar, everyone is welcome to enjoy a drink here. The knick-knacks, hanging art, and cozy atmosphere are pleasant and familiar. The blood-red pool table, on the other hand like the bar itself, is one of a kind. Settle back with your favorite drinks and enjoy the mellow ambiance and friendly clientele.

SF Eagle

A gay bar of the classic variety, it caters to bikers, daddies, leather-clad folk and pretty much all and sundry. There is a lot going on here during the week with events such as lesbian night, charity benefits, contests, open mic nights, live performances and pot luck dinners. Theme nights are pretty interesting too, giving bikes, beards, and tattoos their special time in the spotlight. Although primarily a gay bar with a touch of leather and bondage, all are welcomed here with equal enthusiasm. Service is friendly and the drinks are great, so come on by for a taste of the vibrant SF nightlife.

El Rio

Tucked into the Mission, El Rio is a beloved neighborhood institution. Locals enjoy a margarita or a pint at the bar or on the spacious patio out back. El Rio features entertainment every weeknight, from DJs, and live bands to salsa dancing and movie nights. See website for detailed calendar. Adding to the bar's allure are "Dollar Day" Mondays, a lengthy happy hour, and free oysters on Fridays.

Hi Tops

Hi Tops is not only a gay bar but also a sports bar. Nestled in the Castro neighborhood, this casual hangout welcomes all into its lively ambiance. Television screens, displaying various sports, dot the walls, around which like-minded fans cheer for their favorite players while drinking cocktails and beers. The menu features a delicious array of finger foods. On offer are sandwiches, corn dog, pretzels, chili and burger, but the most popular of all is their Buffalo Wings.

The Cinch

The cigar-store Native American is your first clue that heading in here is like heading back to the Old West. Hitch yourself to the bar and enjoy a beer. Or mosey to the back, past the two pool tables, to a roofed patio complete with every cowpoke's favorites such as a wood burning fire and a right fine BBQ. The Cinch is a great place to laze away an afternoon or evening while making new friends or hanging out with old ones.

Lone Star

This popular biker bar is not the scene some biker bars can be. At the Long Star Saloon, you will find neither fashion police nor attitudes, just serious drinking and leather wearing. Check out the Sunday beer bust where you can drink all you want for a few dollars. It is a great place to hang out the rest of the week, too, with a vibrant leather scene on which to feast your eyes and bartenders.
