San Francisco's Best Date Bars

San Francisco’s streets are dotted with bars on every corner, but choosing a bar for your date night can be tricky. If the music is blaring in your ears, you're packed like sardines, or the bar smells like whisky and vomit, it's not going to create the romantic atmosphere you hoped for. The Ambiance Matchmaking team crafted this list to make sure you get off on the right foot, so all you have to worry about is getting to know your date.


FORT MASON

THE INTERVAL AT LONG NOW

The Interval is a bar, coffee shop, event space, museum, and the home of The Long Now Foundation all bundled up into one pretty, little package. It's library-like vibe is due to its floor-to-ceiling books available for reading while you sip on one of their artisan cocktails.
Address: Landmark Building A, 2 Marina Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94123

RUSSIAN HILL

LEOPOLD'S

ODDJOB

Oddjob is a quirky neighborhood bar that thoughtfully crafts its libations based on three different characteristics: earthy, floral, and spicy.

HAYES VALLEY

BRASS TACKS

This bar may have a laid-back vibe, but it takes their drinks seriously. While you can find many craft beers along with wine on tap, we recommend trying one of their snazzy cocktails. Our favorite? The Brass Smash with Venezuelan rum, cynar, mint and lemon. YUM!

COLE VALLEY

PADRECITA

The tequila, mezcal and bar program match the thoughtfulness and seasonality of the culinary offering at Padrecita.
