Nice bar/lounge! Classy with nicely dressed people and great wine. I definitely want to come back with some friends. One of those places where you can dress up and have a chill evening. In the latter part of the evening, they have a DJ in the corner playing music.Recommended for:

As a native New Yorker who enjoys a good night life, Press Club is one of my favorite bars/lounges in SF. It is sleek, spacious, and the DJs typically play good music (you can sit towards the back if you want a more quiet scene). The wine selection is fairly extensive and the ambience is classy but not stuck upRecommended for:

I had an evening of wine country without actually being in wine country. Located around the corner from Four Seasons Hotel on Yerba Buena Lane, this chic urban tasting room offers personalized tasting sessions with representatives from 8 wineries from Napa, Sonoma and Santa Cruz: Chateau Montelena, Fritz, Hanna, Landmark, Miner, Mount Eden, Pahlmeyer and Saintsbury. In fact, this is the only public site where you can have a tasting of Mount Eden and Saintsbury wines.
As you enter, you're greeted by the concierge who checks you in, much like being checked into a hotel or spa. You receive a "credit card" which allows you to go around to each winery and purchase tastings. Just be mindful of how much you "charge" -- you aren't rung up until checking out, so don't shock yourself on the way out.
The swanky and relaxed setting is far from being pretentious, and for amateurs like me, the staff is really helpful in educating you about their wines. And although the 8 wineries have their own separate spaces, they all work together like one big family. Each winery offers something unique, so you might just want to take home a bottle from each one of them. For an amazing white, be sure to have Landmark's Overlook Chardonnay, which is comprised of 22 vineyards. Landmark also has an amazing Pinot and Syrah that is not to be missed.
Tasty bites are also be available, which makes this a wonderful after work, pre-dinner/party spot to converge before a night out on the town!Recommended for:

Huge wine bar at Yerba Buena center. Very contemporary looking with exposed concrete. There are many sections with different types of seatings. Good wine selection. It is always so busy.

Nice and chill wine bar. The prices are more on the pricier side, but the wine and drink selection is good and the food is excellent. A group of us shared a cheese sampler plate of 4 different type of cheeses. For their drinks, I liked how they offered a Flight selection where you chose a themed sample of 3-5 different pre-selected wines or bubblies. Servers were excellent and knowledgeable of their wines and gave good recommendations for the food that our group

Press Club is located in the small enclave of Yerba Buena Lane and is a few blocks away from the Market St. BART stop. The layout is a bit strange - you walk in and find a wine shop, but downstairs is an expansive dining room/lounge/bar where you can sample wines and order appetizers. The paying system is a bit strange too - upon arriving, you give a credit card to the host and are given a tag in return; payment is upstairs after your drinks/meal. What's not strange is how good this place is. The wine list is incredible, and the appetizers - especially the mini pizzas - are fantastic. I really love the decor too; it has a great "modern barn" feel to it.Recommended for:

Experience the wine country without ever leaving San Francisco or even leaving Press Club! That's the beauty of the tastings. Staff from the wineries come in Thursday evening to share their stories, as well as their wine.

Great wine bar to lounge at. We usually end up with our friends who host happy hours here every other month. Nick's Happy Hours are very popular here. The have special flights of wine and the food here is pretty good also.

I came here with some friends on a Friday night around 9 pm after reading some great reviews. The space itself felt very cool, with nice lighting, modern decor and high ceilings. The service, however, was terrible - it was impossible to even get the wine list (its a wine bar). We waited 30 mins at our table before finally grabbing a server. It did not get better from there. The crowd felt like the leftovers from happy hour, and the music was pretty bad. We may have been there on a bad night - but all told I was not impressed. Much preferred the nearby Otis Lounge.

If you love wine and can't easily make it to Napa, Press Club is your place. Conveniently located downtown in Yerba Buena Lane, this underground bar hosts several popular wine producers from wine country, including Chateau Montelena, the winery that put Napa on the map in France.
Press Club often hosts events, so keep your eyes open for those as well.
