El Rio

This decades-old standby embodies colorful, gritty, all-inclusive San Francisco at its finest. Sick of stilted small talk? Take a spin around El Rio. There’s a dog-friendly patio strung with colorful lights, shuffleboard and pool tables for facing off, a trusty old juke box, and an anything-goes dance floor where bands, DJs, burlesque dancers and karaoke kings perform nightly. It’s a roving, friendly crowd that spans all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations. Between the casually competitive bar games, chatty back patio and ongoing dance party, introductions happen naturally.
