An Irish pub is the type of place where you can walk in at any time of day and order a drink—be it a bloody Mary, pint of Harp’s or shot of Jameson—with no judgement from anyone, barman or patron. This quality is best illustrated at Lefty O’Douls, a bar that’s open every day, all day starting at 7am. The bar is named after its original owner, a baseball player and respected coach and manager of the San Francisco Seals baseball team. In 1958, O’Doul decided to open a bar where baseball players, celebrities and locals could come together to enjoy a drink. Baseball artifacts cover the walls and there is plenty of table seating, as well as a long bar extending halfway across the restaurant. There’s an old-school lunch counter that serves up hearty American diner food all day long; think scrambles and omelettes for breakfast, Reuben sandwiches and cobb salad for lunch and nightly specials like beef stew, prime rib, turkey a la king and chicken marsala for dinner.
