SF Weekly's Description

With its roaring fireplace and wood-paneled walls, hearty drinks, and amazing free live music calendar, the Riptide is a cozy home away from home for many. DJs spin punk, ska, and metal on Wednesday through Friday nights, with folk, bluegrass, and Americana bands and players taking over on Saturdays and Sundays. Homemade vittles on Friday evening, surf videos on the TV, and a friendly staff make this a perfect after-beach warm-up spot.

Tips from foursquare

  • AskMen on 06/16/11

    Strong drinks & an old-school lodge vibe make it feel like a sailor’s bar. Just a block from the mighty Pacific, they show surf movies here every Wednesday night

  • Cora D. on 02/21/11

    Party with old people!

  • Ramsey on 05/11/11

    Bring your dog (or some elae's), order a pitcher or beer, and sit at the cool wooden tables.

  • Devlin V. on 02/05/11

    Friday night is metal & punk night

  • Josh G. on 10/27/13
