Where to Grab a Glass of Wine in San Francisco

Marengo Wine Whiskey and Sliders

In case you haven’t noticed, my drink of choice is almost, always wine. There’s nothing better than enjoying a glass of red at happy hour with the girls or while watching my favorite shows like The Bachelor and Scandal (#TGIT anyone?)

Have you ever noticed that there has to be a certain “ambiance” when wine is involved? Almost like a very chill and relaxed or loungy state. Being in a rowdy bar just wouldn’t feel right for the full wine “experience.”

Lucky for you, I’ve done my research as far as the great spots to grab a glass of wine in SF goes and now I’m sharing the results. Here we go!

My friends and I have a thing for Marengo in the Marina (and now FiDi). Not only do they have a great house red for only $5 a glass on happy hour, but they also have this queso that is so crave-worthy.

Have you ever been to Redford? To say we’re regulars might be an understatement. Tip: go on a Tuesday! It’s happy hour all night which means a 50% off wine bottles and Ahi Tuna Tacos for all 😉

Ever find yourself in the Marina at that awkward time between dinner and when it’s actually appropriate to go to the club? I really like to stop in at Cellar Door because it’s a little bit loungy with twinkle lights and I bet you anything in the hour or two you’re there you’ll watch the place fill up as the DJ starts to play.

Do you like pizza? I’m sure you do. I like pizza because it usually goes great with some Chianti and I like to get both at Delarosa! There are a couple locations, but I prefer the one on near Market simply because there’s more patio space than the other one on Chestnut.

I’d love to hear about any wine spots you love in SF too! Let me know in the comments below.
