BRENNAN & GRACY

Local Bars

Just a few of our favorite hang out places, where we would unwind after 12 hours in front of the computer.

R Bar

R Bar

1176 Sutter Street

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 567-7441

Bartenders are very friendly here, drinks are reasonably priced, good beer and a fun atmosphere. LOVE LOVE LOVE the R Bar. Brennan and I have so many memories here. If you go, ask for Tod and tell him Gracy sent you.

Bourbon & Branch

Bourbon & Branch

501 Jones Street

San Francisco, CA 94102

(415) 346-1735

Bourbon & Branch is a glimpse back on the 1920's and the era of Prohibition when the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverage was outlawed. You'll experience the ambiance of that time in an actual speakeasy that operated illegally at this location from 1921 to 1933.

If you want to check out this place, our suggestion is to make a reservation 2 weeks in advance. You'll be given a secret password so you and your guests can enter. Check out the site for more information.

The View

The View

San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel 55 4th St

San Francisco, CA 94103

(415) 896-1600

It's not a place to party but it is a great place for a cocktail and a amazing view of the city, actually the BEST view. This is Brennan's favorite place and it was our first official date spot for Valentine's Day.

The Wreck Room

The Wreck Room

1390 California St

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 932-6715

This is a new cool bar with a jukebox, darts, basketball hoop and shuffleboard in the back. Our friend Tod who is the owner of R Bar also owns The Wreck Room. Overall, good beer, good prices, and friendly bartenders.

Fly Bar

Fly Bar

1085 Sutter St (at Larkin St)

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 441-4232

I love Fly Bar. They staff here is great, always attentive and quick to take your order. Their pizzas and pizzettas are mouthwatering. Several of their appetizers are tasty and quite filling. Long drink menu, and happy hour is ever day from 3:30-6:30!

Bacchus Kirk

Bacchus Kirk

925 Bush Street

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 474-4056

The bartenders are always friendly, good selection of beers on tap, a fireplace, pool table, and plenty of seating. It's never overly crowded, but always a good variety of people inside. Great music always playing... you can't really ask for more from a local bar. This place is great!

Ruby Skye

Ruby Skye

420 Mason St (between Derby St & Geary St)

San Francisco, CA 94102

(415) 693-0777

You gotta love EDM in order to appreciate a club like Ruby Skye! I don't know of any other nightclubs in the city that constantly brings big name artists from the EDM industry, besides this place right here. This club has seen some of the top DJ's from Dash Berlin, Above & Beyond, Kaskade, Dada Life, and of course the world's number one DJ Armin Van Buuren! Ruby Skye also showcases up and coming DJs so it's always good to attend those events as well!

Ruby Skye can definitely put on a jaw dropping production depending on the event and the DJs. Brennan and I have been to a couple of their White events and must say, the transformation this club goes through for events like that is amazing! Lights, decorations, and acrobat performances, the whole nine yards!

Brennan and I always have to visit this place when were in the city! Always a blast!

Vessel Night Club

Vessel Night Club

85 Campton Place

San Francisco, CA 94108

(415) 433-8585

This is a split level venue with the admission and coat-check upstairs, and the dance floor and drinks downstairs.

The venue itself has a VIP section and is pretty small, and has a small bar area but the bartenders are friendly, attentive, and fast.

The main down-side is that this is a dress-code club.
