One of the most unique bars that I have ever been into had to be the Carribean Zone in the south of market (SOMA) area near downtown San Francisco. This bar is located on a small street called Natoma, off market. The bar lies in a desolate looking area, and you have to enter a corregated metal structure to get into the bar. It looks like you are in a not great area, but have faith! The bar istself can be very quiet on a weeknight, but is definately worth a visit. The interior is decked out like a rainforest, complete with exotic plants and even a waterfall. However, the one thing that you will not fail to notice is the 'crashed' plane behind the bar. Sit inside, order a cocktail and watch the outside go by, courtesy of tv screens behind the windows. A great experience.
Located at 1040 Columbus Avenue, this Irish pub with its own Indian restaurant serves up an amazing night out and provides the perfect opportunity to satisfy a post-drinking appetite! With a fun, but laid-back atmosphere, you can shoot pool, drink pitchers and choose from hundreds of tunes on the famous internet-connected jukebox before you eat. Kennedy's curries are cheap and generously portioned and the bar serves over 100 different beers and wines. A haven for locals, from skateboarders to bikers, the bar is also extremely tourist friendly. So much so that my friend and I spent an entire day....and night in there. Like we did, you will leave Kennedy's with great stories, great memories, and a whole host of new friends!
