Hotel Biron

Map & Directions 45 Rose
San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Daily 5pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

Don't be misled: this bar has nothing to do with a hotel. It does, however, have everything to do with the fine art of wine and cheese. Calling it a wine bar doesn't quite capture the essence of this special Hayes Valley drinking locale. It's more like a backdoor speakeasy: the candle-lit, cave-like room hosts a humble bar in the back and just enough seats for a few parties of four. It's also dubbed an art gallery, which means they feature new shows every second Thursday. As far as drinking goes, they have dozens of wines by the glass or bottle, as well as an impressive list of bottled beers. Sake, Ritual Roasters coffee, and an assortment of cheeses are also available

    Hotel Biron is tucked away on Rose alley off of Market & Gough. GREAT wine list, very knowledgeable staff, and great for a date! also they have an art opening I think the first thurs. of each month, but there is always amazing art to go with the vino.

Tips from foursquare

    Great little wine bar tucked behind Zun Café. Yummy cheese and meats and a few good beers as well. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef

  • Mazda on 11/11/10

    The exposed brick walls, art, and mood lighting give this bar a trendy euro-cool vibe.

  • AskMen on 07/05/10

    SOMA might be seeing more openings as of late, but we have to agree that Hayes Valley has a certain breezy charm. A. List tip? Start civilized with some cheese pairings at the Hôtel Biron.
