ZAGAT: Hottest Bars in San Francisco

The sun is back after a rainy winter and Bay Area residents are ready to hoist a glass to that. We're especially excited to grab a Woods beer and soak up the sun at its Treasure Island beach club, or enjoy an Outer Sunset crawl at Woods Outbound and Seven Stills' recently unveiled taproom. Meanwhile, in the heart of the city, the Tenderloin's bar revival continues with cocktail standouts like The Douglas Room and Rum & Sugar. With new bars focusing on themed food and cocktail pairings, or champagne with caviar, you can grab dinner and drinks (with a group or alone) in venues like Over Proof and The Riddler. It's a fun season to spend a weekend on the town. Let's "cheers" to the area's dozen hottest local bars.

A chill Outer Sunset taproom delivers well-priced Mexican bar bites, house beers (including growlers to go) and a selection of shandies blended from Seven Stills beers and fermented aguas frescas from Hard Frescos. The playful digs have a laid-back neighborhood vibe and eclectic decor, with communal tables, colorful chairs and playful wall murals.
