The 12 Best Bars in the Bay Area

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur, a beer guzzler, a dance late night dancer, a laid back patio type; into rooftop cocktails, jazz bars, dive bars, or gay bars – the Bay Area has everything you need for your kind of night out on the town.

1. The Hidden Vine

The Hidden Vine, a bar specializing in (surprise!) wine, is a gem of a wine bar on Merchant Street in the Financial District of San Francisco with a reputation for quality service and an extensive, carefully constructed wine list.  The Hidden Vine is an unpretentious, welcoming place to enjoy the company of friends while sharing food and wine.  If you’re new to wine or interested in exploring multiple wines, be sure to grab a flight (3 2oz servings) or a comparison (2 3oz pours).  Their food ranges from charcuterie and cheese platters to flatbreads and sliders that showcase local ingredients.  They also have outdoor bocce ball!
