Nickies is a no-nonsense bar that offers a little bit of everything, beer, pool, dancing, and, of course, football. On a big game-day it can get quite crowded, but otherwise the large interior offers ample space for visitors. The brightly lit bar is lined with colorful liquor bottles and framed soccer jerseys, and a disco-ball reminds guests that it’s alright, in fact encouraged, to kick up their heels and let loose.

Head over to Underground SF to dance, dance, dance. Open Tuesday through Saturday night, the space is dark, crowded, and, of course, underground, making it the quintessential dive-club of San Francisco. Each night hosts a different musical theme, including SF’s longest running drum-and-bass night every Tuesday, and Bubble Thursdays for the dance maniacs.
