SW Hotel

615 Broadway St., San Francisco, CA 94133
3 reviews

At the very edge of Chinatown and North Beach sits the SW Hotel, which means there’s plenty (and I mean *plenty*) of action to be had. Hot bars and restaurants are located just a few steps away (Rosewood, for example, is just across the street). The Financial District is also two big blocks away. I was surprised when I first ...

    Washington Square Park

    21 reviews

    This is a fantastic part to spend a leisurely sunny afternoon. There's always enough space to gather some friends. So grab a slice of pizza from Tony's or a sandwich from Molinari's, spread out a blanket, and soak up the sun!

    Known mostly as an event space, this is a just-south-of North Beach parlor that you could easily call part of Chinatown. The location doesn't promise a lot in the way of spontaneous excitement, but the bar does sport a pretty chic wood interior, a couple of small bars, and a nice sound system.

    Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory

    16 reviews

    A very sketchy fortune cookie factory located in an alleyway in China Town, I love it. There's a a grandma sitting there quickly taking the cookies off the line and forming the shape, while stuffing the fortunes in. The cookies are delicious off the line and you can also even make your own custom fortunes. Protip: Print them out at ...

    15 Romolo

    0.06 mi from SW Hotel
    16 reviews

    15 Romolo is actually the non-creative name of this dark, casual, but pretty cool drinking and apps establishment. Why? Because that is the address of it, 15 Romolo Place. Romolo is one of the shortest streets in SF, also one of its non-flatest. Romolo, sounding like a brother of Romulus and Remus who built Rome, is in the heart of ...

    Good vibe, skilled bartenders, cozy wooden interior. Surprisingly easy street parking as well. And pizza slices just around the corner. Wins on all counts.

    9 reviews

    Rogue is an amazing beer brand from Oregon with all kinds of high quality beer concoctions in interesting combinations. This is a mix of bar and restaurant featuring tons of Rogue beers, as well as a handful of other brands. I tend to go for stouts myself and recommend either chocolate or oatmeal stout.

    I finally went to see BBB. It's a great show with fabulous hats! Love that it changes with the times. The bar is cash only, so make sure to hit up the ATM beforehand. Also, wear padded pants. Your butt will hurt after an hour and a half in those chairs.

    5 reviews

    Dell'uva is a pleasant and accesible wine bar located in the heart of North Beach. I appreciate their menu for having wine options that are a bit more affordable than other wine bars in the city offer. Dell'uva also has a nice menu that includes pizzas.

    Portsmouth Square

    0.25 mi from SW Hotel
    5 reviews

    Possibly the most vibrant and interesting square in downtown San Francisco. Unlike Union Square or Justin Herman Plaza, Portsmouth Square always seems to be changing. A number of monuments, like the Robert Louis Stevenson monument and the site where the American flag was first raised in SF, sit hidden amidst all the elderly Chinese people. Live entertainment is common, and ...

    Specs' Twelve Adler Museum Cafe

    0.07 mi from SW Hotel
    4 reviews

    Specs is the place to go when you're looking for a relatively quiet, dimly lit bar that oozes with character. There tends to be an older crowd of regulars that come here, and they tend to frown upon the younger "party drinking" set.

    Once upon a time when I was new to the city of San Francisco I coincidentally stumbled upon this bar after a fabulous dinner at Bix and was drawn to it by it's exotic congo drums and familiar Cuban son musical style. And what do I find? A live Cuban band performing beautiful hits from Cuba's beautiful golden age 50's ...

    Li PO is a very strange dive bar in chinatown. After walking in, it appears to be a typical chinatown dive bar, however there's an underground level. After going down there, it seems like what I would imagine to be a rave. A very cramped sweatbox inside of a basement with black and neon lights everywhere. It's actually quite an ...

    A small little club. It is mostly filled with locals. We stopped here with a bunch of travel buddies to just sit and relax. It is right across the way from the Green Tortoise Hostel which makes it a potentially good place to meet new interesting people. The drinks are reasonable price (as they arent in most places in SF)

This place is smack in the middle of brightly colored streets and corners where the writers themselves stood and smoke cigarettes and thought up genius ideas. The museum is a great hub of all things beat, including an amazing gift shop ...
