SF Weekly's Description

One long hallway of a bar, the low-lit Dalva boasts great sangria and DJs spinning various kinds of hip, cool music. If the tunes get too loud for conversation (which they often do), head to the not-so-secret back room (its "Hideout" status is even mentioned on the sign outside).

    SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST BAR INSIDE A BARA small and intimate craft-cocktail bar in the back of Dalva that serves up some deliciously serious concoctions...

    check out the hideout in the back... only open on busy nights, but cozy speakeasy with yummy cocktails in the rear

    Hideout in the back is where it's at!

  • Kyle M. on 09/05/11

    A no bs bar with bartenders who know their stuff. No cocktails list, so come armed with your favorite classic -- but no Cosmos, please! They're plain sick of them.

    Sure Third Eye Blind wrote a song about this bar, but it is my favorite bar in the Mission. As the bartender for some goldfish.
