Why locals recommend it
The back area of this big biergarten is filled with communal picnic tables and it's first come, first served. It's great for a casual night out because you know what to expect: a pitcher of beer and a burger or bratwurst. People love the grilled cheese sandwiches, too. Bring cash, prepare yourself for heavy metal and rock music blasting inside the bar, and don't mess with the bouncer or bartenders. They also have solid Bloody Marys, which are sometimes extremely necessary.

Cash-only beer bar. Was previously for grunge/punk fans, now the scene is for prep-shirt wearing tech employees (not a bad thing).

Less than a five-minute walk, you will stumble into this casual beer garden, on the corner of Valencia/Duboce, that is always lively and has a large selection of beers and drinks.

One a nice warm day it doesn't get any better than drinking outside in this beer garden! Cash only and pretty divey, grab some brews and drink outside with friends.

This is an unapologetic rock and roll bar that always plays a solid selection of rock, punk, and metal. It’s not for everyone. If you’re into beer, they have LOTS of great beers on tap (~30+) and good bar food. The garden out back is great on a sunny day.

Cocktail Bar
“For the more adventurous among us, porn company Kink.com's dimly lit cocktail bar resembles an upscale Victorian parlor. Really cool and unique SF experience!”

Park
“When the weather is nice, you can barely see the grass due to the throngs of people lounging around. Luckily, the park was recently renovated and is big enough that you're bound to find a spot you like. The southwest corner is good for a panoramic view of the city skyline (and usually far enough away from the folks enjoying their herbal refreshments on the northern slope). There's also a nice kid's playground, although it's geared more towards older kids.”
