There is no denying San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Whether it’s the slopping Victorian houses or bay views, city-goers are treated to visual imagery unlike any other. To really capture the breathtaking views, there is no better way than to visit one of these 10 bars below, and enjoy them with a drink in your hand.
$$ – Expect a classic Top of the Mark martini to set you back $14, and a Kobe beef slider plate will be $27.
$ – The View’s young, sophisticated atmosphere calls for a trendy yet sophisticated cocktail, like the $15 Moscone Mule, and a mezze plate to share with friends for $9.
$$ – Signature cocktails start at $9, and if you miss the happy hour, expect to spend $35 on an oyster platter.
$$ – The gin and chartreuse Last Word martini for $10.50 would make a nice primer for your Dungeness crab and artichoke ravioli dish for $31. Sutro’s also offers a $55 brunch with unlimited champagne on Sundays.
$ – Margaritas start at $13, but savvy drinkers will order a pitcher for $45. An egg benedict brunch will set you back $13.
$ – Seal Rock Inn’s crab and avocado salad is a steal at $10.25, and will pair splendidly with that $5.50 brunch mimosa.
$$ – A romantic night out on the island calls for a glass or two of $10 sparkling wine. The prix-fixe, four-course menu is $75 per person.
$ – Penne puttanesca will set you back $24, and the bacon Bloody Mary will set you back $15.
Shout-out to vegetarians: this one is for you. Don’t worry, your meat-loving friends are going to love this place too. The lack of full bar at this culinary gem is more than made up for by its flourless chocolate cake and front-row seats overlooking the yacht harbor and Golden Gate Bridge. Book a table at sunset and order up a bottle of La Rue Pinot Noir, because you’re going to want to be here for a while. Then enjoy the zen of the locally sourced, organic masterpiece on your plate.
$$ – A glass of prosecco starts at $9, and the butternut squash and sweet potato gratin is $26. A Saturday prix-fixe, four-course menu is an affordable haute-cuisine way to celebrate a special occasion at $58/person.
$ – A Trident cioppino feast will run $36, and a Paloma de Fuego is $13.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
