Finnegans Wake

Map & Directions 937 Cole
San Francisco, CA 94117
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


SF Weekly's Description

A hangout for Cole Valley's post-hipster denizens, Finnegans Wake is everything a neighborhood bar should be: friendly, no frills, and relaxed, with a dive-ish vibe for those who are so over irony. Seeming impossibly larger on the inside than how small it appears from the sidewalk, the bar is a dark, chill locals spot, perfect on a brisk night for cozying up in a dimly lit corner, or for those halcyon summer evenings when you want to make use of the back patio. For max-relaxing, rendezvous on that patio for free BBQ, or bring your own takeout from French bistro Zazie next door. And if the chill backyard's not enough, ping-pong, billiards, darts, and pinball should sate the gamers in your crew; dodgeball and pool leagues are open for the more athletic patrons.

    Home of the unhappiest bartender. It's almost comedic.

  • Winston on 02/20/10

    If you're waiting to eat brunch at Zazie, you can write on the waitlist that you're at Finnegan's, and the host will come and get you. Love it!

    Have a beer, drink it out back & play a lil pong pong...

  • Matthew G. on 11/11/10

    Great bloody mary's. Be prepared for some east coast sarcasm.

  • Nathan R. on 02/07/12

    Know what you want before you step to the bar. You've been warned.
