Nightlife in San Francisco

San Francisco. The hilly city is considered the cultural and economic hub of Northern California. Its relatively small size—47.9 square miles—it's one of the smallest cities in the country as far as land area is concerned. Thanks to the comparably high population, though (close to 900,000 residents), it is also one of the most densely populated cities in the country, with more than 18,000 people per square mile.

With all those folks packed in close proximity, it's no wonder that a byproduct has been some of the most celebrated nightlife on the West Coast (and perhaps even the nation). Sure, there are other factors that have contributed to San Francisco having such a vibrant scene, but it's hard to deny that having so many people in such tight quarters didn't help. So, what are some of these fabled places? Read on, and you'll wish you had scoped out a spot around Nob Hill or looked for apartments in the financial district of San Francisco a little sooner.

San Francisco: Where The Night Comes Alive

Neighborhood by neighborhood, San Francisco is well-known for their amazing nightlife options. Residents and travelers alike can enjoy finely crafted drinks, amazing arts & culture, and some of the finest entertainment venues the Bay Area has to offer. With the possibility of bars getting the option to extend their operating hours past 2 A.M. inching closer to reality, San Francisco seems poised for a nightlife renaissance on a grand scale. So, which spots will you want to check out to get your fill of drinks, dancing, and quality live performances?

We might not be able to cover them all, but we can take a look at some of the standout options, like Kells in North Beach. It's considered one of San Francisco's best (and bro-iest) Irish bars, and has more than just a little bit going for it. In addition to the fine mix of Irish and American culture, told through outstanding food and drink, the establishment features live house music six nights a week. You can catch live sports up on the big screen, and in general have raucous, rowdy good time in this cut-loose kind of atmosphere.

Then you've got spots like White Chapel. It's no secret that this gin joint is one of the finest spots you can visit if you're a fan of the popular drink. The premier selection, the largest in North America, coupled with its unique atmosphere have earned it a place on Esquire's list of best bars in the nation. Some even go so far as to call it one of the 50 greatest bars on the entire globe. High praise, but accolades that are well earned. You'll have to check this spot out to get the full effect.

The Financial District is the best place to go if you enjoy wine. They've got stand out options like The Barrel Room, which has more than 50 different wines in their lineup. There are also other top-tier establishments like The Hidden Vine and Barbarossa Lounge which honor wine aficionados with extensive menus, comfortable outdoor settings, stunning interior setups, and superior architectural design.

Beer lovers will want to give Mikkeller Bar a shot. It's a huge location, stocked with dozens of draft beers and a few fine ales as well. They take beer to the level of a well-honed art and superbly researched science here, complementing it with excellent food and the superb atmosphere of a beer drinking paradise that's hard to top.

If dancing the night away is more your speed, you've got more than a few locations to do it at. There's Infusion in Union Square, notable in the way that it combines a trendy, upscale atmosphere with reasonably priced admission. You can get in even cheaper if you sign up in advance online, and they run special promotions via their social media accounts to provide even more value to potential clientele. For a combo night with dancing and vibing out to vintage 80s and 90s jams, Double Dutch is the place to be. The DJs here have all the fan-favorite classics on steady rotation, and, depending on your preferences, you might not find a better selection of music anywhere else.

If you want your music live and in full effect, however, you'd be remiss not to check out The Independent. Located on Divisadero Street near Alamo Square Park, this venue is raw, hard-hitting, and dedicated to indie artists and up-and-comers. They further bolster the scene with a full bar staffed by some of the finest staff in the city, making this an ideal location to enjoy a few drinks and see what talent is making its way up the ranks.

Now, all you need is a spot of your own nearby to make sure you can enjoy all the thrills on your own time. Luckily, it won't be hard to track down something suitable.
