Hi Dive

Map & Directions Pier 28 1/2
San Francisco, CA 94105


SF Weekly's Description

If you stand outside the Hi Dive on a foggy night, when the mist slithers in from all sides and the Bay Bridge looms like a steel leviathan over this old waterfront hooch-house, you'd be forgiven for imagining it as a felons' hangout from a vintage film noir. But step inside and you won't find fugitives, grifters, or bindlestiffs, just white-collar workers, residents from the new condos nearby, and the occasional tourist seeking sustenance after an Embarcadero stroll. The interior decor is modern with a casual California flair (e.g., earth tone walls, ecru lampshades), while the food menu edges toward the posher side of traditional bar grub (e.g., gourmet burgers, grilled sandwiches, fried appetizers). On warm afternoons, a patio provides nice outdoor seating along Pier 28, looking up at the bridge overhead; during inclement weather, the long string of rear windows offers a similarly striking view from indoors. That vista will always feel cinematic - even if you're not a gumshoe going undercover in a criminals' lair.

    When its not full of SFGiants fans, this is a great place to hang on the water, and people watch. Also, the french frys are to die for!
