The bar scene in Noe Valley has something for everyone. Check out our pick of the top 10 bars in Noe Valley, each of which will provide an unforgettable night.


Travel to the Iberian Peninsula for a night and visit Contigo, a Spanish themed tapas bar. This restaurant embodies the culture and vibrant energy of Barcelona with a wonderfully curated drink menu, which offers plenty of drinks all with their own Spanish flair.

The Peaks Bar Noe Valley

When game day comes around, you can expect to hear roaring cheers at The Peaks Bar Noe Valley. It’s ideal if you’re looking for a classic dive bar to catch the game; get the crew together and head to the back to play a couple rounds of pool or darts and lounge around on the back patio seating.

The Bar on Dolores

The Bar on Dolores is a sports day go-to, especially since they have 12 flat screen TVs (usually playing multiple games). It’s also a great venue to host a birthday party or a fundraiser.
