San Francisco’s Best Restaurant Bars: The J.S.F.’s Favorite’s

Nopa¬†– As a fairly new local (since Fall of 2012) to San Francisco this is hands down one of my favorite restaurant’s and restaurant bars. Their drinks are always divine and it’s a very long bar (probably 20 seats) so no matter where you sit (or stand) you have a full view of the restaurant, the bar as well as the open kitchen. The bar tenders are very friendly, make a mean drink (their Gin Gimlet is my¬†FAV) and if you’re lucky enough to grab a seat at the bar you won’t be able to resist their amazing food. ¬†560¬†Divisadero¬†St. San Francisco, CA. 94117. 415-864-8643.¬†

Spruce Restaurant Bar – This is yet another fabulous restaurant (that I LOVE and frequent) that also has a fabulous bar. Whenever I take people here for the first time their reaction is wow I feel like I’m in New York City. The restaurant is extremely grand and elegant. There’s a Fine Dining side and a ¬†more casual walk in area (no reservations needed) where the Bar is. I love both, it just depends on the occasion. ¬†Their dining room also serves brunch which not surprisingly is as delicious as all their other food! ¬†It’s important to mention when at Spruce be sure to visit their¬†fabulous Cafe! They have some of the best cookies in town. I get a cookie (or two, let’s be honest) each time I visit. ¬†¬†3640 Sacramento St., San Francisco, CA 94118 (415) 931-5100.
