This beloved, decades-old dive embodies all-inclusive San Francisco at its finest, welcoming a colorful cross-section of the city—young and old, gay and straight. The dog-friendly patio is huge and inviting, while inside you’ll find shuffleboard and pool tables, a trusty old jukebox, and an anything-goes dance floor where bands, DJs, burlesque dancers and karaoke kings perform nightly. In warmer months, live bands play everything from salsa to bluegrass out back. Between the casually competitive bar games, chatty patio, and ongoing dance party, introductions happen naturally.
Sure the Internet is basically the world’s biggest singles bar, but that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to swiping left or right. There’s still something to be said for getting out of the house and meeting someone new the old fashioned way—in a bar. Fortunately, there's a singles bar in San Francisco for everyone and anyone who is on the prowl. Whether you are looking for a hook up, a booty call or true everlasting love, there’s a spot for you. Choose from casual spots in the Mission with outdoor patios, a downtown beer hall or the hottest cruise bar in SoMa; These bars are welcome proof that that seeking connections with living, breathing humans doesn't have to be soul-sucking.
