We San Franciscans love our sports teams. Whatever the season, whether it’s baseball, basketball or football season, we love cheering on our beloved teams to the end. And what better way to enjoy the upcoming game than to get riled up with other San Francisco sports fans at a sports bar with beer, snacks and multiple flat screen TVs. To help you with that, here is our list of the best sports bars in San Francisco.
Kezar Pub, located across the street from the former home of the 49ers (Kezar Stadium), joins together local and international sports fans. If you enjoy playing sports in addition to watching them, this place has pool, darts and a selection of video games to try your hand at. Grab your buddies, a beer and a burger or highly rated chicken wings, and cheer on your favorite team at Kezar.
