R Bar

Map & Directions 1176 Sutter
San Francisco, CA 94109
  • Sun 10am-2am, Mon-Fri 6pm-2am, Sat 11am-2am


SF Weekly's Description

The bare-bones exterior and block-letter signage may lead you to assume this Polk Gulch joint is a dingy hole in the wall, but the R Bar is more of a trendy hangout than a Tenderloin dive. Inside you'll find stylish, subtle lighting and snazzy decor, plus a post-collegiate crowd knocking back microbrews while sports and movies beam from multiple flat-screen TVs and rock and hip-hop blare from the CD jukebox.

    R Bar's got a neighborhood feel where bartenders Ed, Will, Chris, Tod and Eric are quick to remember your name... and your favorite beverage like a bucket of Heinekens to match my J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets! Jersey. First Class, Not Pretentious! Good Times!

    This is one of the only bars in SF that is for sure a Jets fan bar... secretly

    Anyone who voluntarily drinks Fernet is an asshole.

    Go to R Bar. Get a group of friends and take a Fernet shot.
