You’ll find an abundance of bars and clubs around The St. Regis San Francisco, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel located in the heart of the city. Here’s a few of the best ones:
- To sample some of the better wines coming out of Napa and Sonoma counties, try Press Club, located at 20 Yerba Buena Lane. This wine bar and lounge is a great place for pairing your wine with tasty cheeses and small plates.
- Beer aficionado will love 21st Amendment, a brewpub in the SoMa neighborhood at 563 2nd Street that serves gourmet burgers and other popular pub fare.
- A young, hip crowd usually packs out The House of Shields (39 New Montgomery Street), and that same crowd is likely to catch an up-and-coming band at the Hotel Utah Saloon (500 4th Street).
- If old-time cocktail culture is more your thing, head to 246 Kearny Street in the financial district for Rickhouse, which serves consistently creative and well mixed drinks. Though the deals are good ones, we recommend avoiding this spot during its always-crowded happy hour.
