Neighborhood Sports Bars in SF

Jeff Howard January 14, 2020

Sports fans of all teams can come together in admiting San Francisco has some pretty great venues to enjoy the game. Whether you’re looking for an intimate dive bar to watch with close friends, or a multi-story megabar to see the game with half the city, there is a place for you! Come see the Giants, 49ers, Warriors, or whichever team you root for at wonderful venues around SF.

Trinity SF - Draught beer

Today, we will focus on the neighborhoods with Trinity residential properties and five nearby sports bars in the area that residents can access. These neighborhoods with rental availability include SoMa, Civic Center, The Mission, Pacific Heights, The Marina, Russian Hill, North Beach, Telegraph Hill, The Sunset, and The Richmond.

SoMa (1188 Mission, 1190 Mission, + 33 8th)

The South of Market region is San Francisco’s fastest-developing section of the city, with more and more residents moving in daily. While Trinity already occupies three buildings, another large tower with 500 residential homes is scheduled to be completed during the summer of 2021. This development will include the largest Whole Foods in SF, as well as the city’s tallest statue and additional retail. Although a sports bar is not included within Trinity Place, you have plenty of nearby options that should suffice.

Let’s next take a look at sports bars in the nearby Civic Center area. Close to BART and SFMTA lines, this neighborhood is filled with local workers, residents, and visitors to Union Square looking to enjoy a day in the city. Easily accessible from the downtown Trinity Towers apartments, these bars are in the center of the city and popular with fans from everywhere. Head to Polk Street or Union Square to enjoy each game with a raucous crowd!

San Francisco’s ever-trendy Mission District has some of the best food in the city as well as fantastic dive bars. Put these two factors together, and you are sure to find a wonderful time in The Mission. While music, culture, and excellent parks tend to be the most common draw in the Mission, each of these locations is sure to suit even the most hardcore fans. We have also included a sports bar in the nearby Castro District, “The Gay Capital of the World”

Pacific Heights (2000 Broadway + 1890 Clay)

The elegant and scenic Pacific Heights neighborhood isn’t just home to some of San Francisco’s most beautiful homes. Multiple awesome bars on Fillmore and in the Cow Hollow area are a short walk for residents at 2000 Broadway or Clay Park Tower. Head to Lafayette Park or Alta Plaza afterward, and you’ve got yourself a lovely afternoon!

If you’re a sports fan in San Francisco, you are probably already aware The Marina is the most popular spot to watch a big game. With a packed bar on every corner, your options are not exactly limited. Head over to Chesnut, Fillmore, or Union Street to find some of the best sports bars in the city.

Although typically known as one of San Francisco’s quietest neighborhoods, Russian Hill has plenty of nearby bars. The best spots are all found in Polk Gulch where fans in jerseys commonly occupy the city streets repping their favorite team on Saturdays and Sundays.

Another great neighborhood to see your team is in the North Beach area near Fisherman’s Wharf. While this space is typically overrun with visitors, it can be quite an experience to meet so many people from different cities rooting for different teams. One of the best sports bars in North Beach is next door to the 2133 Stockton apartments on Bay Street just a couple blocks from Pier 39.

Telegraph Hill (350 Union)
