The 20 Best Happy Hour Watering Holes in San Francisco

Happy hours are a cultural fixture (and time) in SF after-work life, and who knows how many really good literary or artistic or business ideas have gestated in the wombs of happy hour establishments. Plenty, undoubtedly.

But, the pressing question is: where are the best happy hours in our city? has come up with a list of the 20 top spots based on good times, quality of drinks and food, price, ambiance and other psychometrics.

At the top of the list is Pi Bar in the Mission. Their happy hour fete starts at 3:14pm and runs for 3 hours and 14 minutes. How’s that for symmetry?

Over in Mid-Market is the Corridor offering a finely nuanced menu of libations and brews from 3-6pm. All drinks are 5 bucks, and there’s good sides too.
