Restaurants

  • The Pub at Ghirardelli Square

    The Pub at Ghirardelli Square

    Dark wood and deep reds set the visual tone inside this touristy-but-classy bar and restaurant in Ghirardelli Square - although you may never notice, since the views of San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park across the street may occupy... More on The Pub at Ghirardelli Square »

  • Upcider

    Upcider

    First there were upscale wine bars. Now, thanks to Upcider, there's an upscale cider bar as well. This minimally decorated second-floor drinkery has long windows overlooking the crowds on Polk Street, while the menu features rare craft ciders you... More on Upcider »

  • Kabuto A&S

    Kabuto A&S

    One of the best sushi restaurants in San Francisco, this small, bright, clean, modern place offers, in addition to an enormous menu of superlative raw fish, a dazzling array of hot and cold dishes as well as a serious sake list. More on Kabuto A&S »

  • The Gangway

    The Gangway

    A wooden mockup of the Titanic's prow juts out of the front of this Tenderloin dive bar, where a faded rainbow flag lets you know gays are welcome (while the Bud Light neon in the window lets you know it ain't a fancypants kinda place). More on The Gangway »

  • Public Works

    Public Works

    Tucked into an alley at the northern edge of the Mission District -- look for a Banksy stencil and a bunch of other great street-art murals on the outside wall -- Public Works is a multi-use space that hosts art shows, DJ dance events, live... More on Public Works »

  • Hemlock Tavern

    Hemlock Tavern

    By showcasing some of the world's best underground indie-rock bands, this microvenue has quickly become one of the city's best. A crowded, clamorous bar up front - decorated with kitschy thrift-shop art, vintage beer paraphernalia, and some... More on Hemlock Tavern »

  • Boom Boom Room

    Boom Boom Room

    Couches and cocktails complement a blues and funk boogie, which makes shaking it on the checkerboard dance floor an old-fashioned must. Nightly, up-and-coming national acts play sweaty, steamy sets on the venue's small stage - always a rollicking... More on Boom Boom Room »

    • In the center of René de Guzman's office at Oakland Museum of California, stacks of exhibition catalogs and trade journals form an improvised table. Crates of records rest nearby, with jackets jutting out at odd angles like the haggard shared collection in a party house living room. The haphazard ephemera and vinyl seem to clash with the title "senior museum curator," but Guzman's lack of preciousness towards his media is telling. He describes the Oakland Museum's upcoming exhibition, "Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records," not as a... More on Oakland Museum of California »

    • If you haven't seen Dillinger Escape Plan live, you remain unaware of the true technical heaviness of which human musicians are capable. When we say this New Jersey mathcore quintet is powerful live, we mean that you will probably spend half the set wanting to physically assault yourself, and the other half wondering, "How the hell are they doing that?" This tour is special because its opening act is Sacramento's own Trash Talk: a band that consistently combines lead-weight riffs with an unhinged attitude. Expect a set that delivers short,...
