A seedy place with a sense of humor that completely characterizes this place.  It's a no frills and unpretentious dive bar with cheap drinks and friendly service. Make sure your fur friend brings some cash because it is cash only!

Elixir is a great cocktail bar that lets you and your pup customize a great bloody mary together.  Grab a table and cozy up with each other as you enjoy your craft cocktails that come at a reasonable price.  The bartenders are very knowledgeable and full of banter that adds to the atmosphere.

5. Amnesia

El Rio offers a great patio for you and your four-legged friend to come hang out at. If it’s not the barbecue on the patio that gets you coming back, it will be the great selection of moderately priced drinks.  Did we mention they also have free oysters on Fridays?  Yes, you read that correctly... FREE!

A divey yet homey feeling atmosphere that also happens to have one of the best bloody marys in the city! It never gets too crowded and offers as a great place to come unwind with man and woman’s best friend.

8. The Ave

                                                                                                                                                                   Photo Credit: www.theavebar.com

If you’re looking for a hole-in-the-wall bar with a mellow vibe to hang out with your hound, don’t pass up The Ave. With a large selection of beer priced for those on a budget, you can’t go wrong here!   The Ave has heart and soul that also offers bottomless mimosas on Sundays.

 9. The Broken Record

                                                                                                                                                                               Photo Credit: www.sfgate.com
For a bar this size, the whiskey selection will blow you and your dog’s socks off. Be sure to check out the kitchen in the back called “Hood Grub” which serves great bar food. The tater tots with curry taught me everything about life. It’ll be hard to keep your dog from begging!

10. Hemlock Tavern

 Can’t go wrong with the freshly squeezed grapefruit juice they use in their drinks. Hemlock can get pretty packed on weekend nights but also offers as a great place to day drink as well.   There couldn’t be anything better than day drinking with your fur friend with you.

11. Iron & Gold

                                                                                                                                                                          Photo Credit: www.ironandgoldsf.com

Amazing craft cocktails where they’re stiff and cheap - one of the best combinations out there.  What’s better to enjoy with your dog? Maybe even cozy up next to the fire? With great music and bartenders, it’s hard not to have a good time here.  

12. The Lucky Horseshoe
