I can't say enough about Dave's! Such a wonderful bar. I was visiting from the east coast and was looking for nice, chill bar to go to. I was staying at the Westin across the street but wanted to find a more relaxed atmosphere. Dave welcomed me with open arms, very cheap drinks and good music. The locals were very friendly and I had such a great time. I went with two friends who live in San Francisco and they loved it as well. It is hands down my favorite bar in the Bay Area and definitely worth a trip!

First set eyes on Dave's in 2004 when on honeymoon (we were staying in The Argent). I'd lost my Dad earlier that year (called Dave) so when I saw this bar across the street I knew I had to try it. I walked in and the juke was playing Frank Sinatra, my dad's favourite, and I knew I was home. Dave's is a great bar for a reflective drink. The locals don't look at you like you have two heads just because you're not a native, you can pass the time of day with them or read a paper or watch sport. That's the beauty of Dave's; you can be yourself. The beers are standard fare but the liquor measures are generous (certainly by UK standards). Food is basic; chowder, dogs, wings etc. but decent enough and cheap. I re-visited San Francisco again in 2007 and invariably ended up spending a couple of hours a day in Dave's - it hadn't changed a bit, long may it remain so.

As unpretentious as a dive bar should be. Dave's is great for a round or two with your buddies. It's even better as a place to drown your sorrows alone and not worry about anyone bothering you. It's around the corner from where I live, so of course that's an extra point.

Unpretentious and authentic, Dave's feels as if you've walked into your favorite bar as soon as you set foot. A friendly, engaging staff and interesting patrons on occasion make this a comfy, warm place to grab a pint or two after work or a visit to SFMOMA.
