From sports bars to cocktail lounges, we’ve picked a wide variety of great bars for work happy hours that will be sure to raise team morale.


The swanky lounge furniture at Hawthorn

Just a few blocks from Union Square, this swanky cocktail lounge and nightclub will appeal to all your senses with its luxe decor, dim lighting and dedication to craft cocktails. Let Hawthorn’s talented mixologists whip something up and chow down on their complimentary truffle oil popcorn. Just leave the interns at home--this lounge is strictly 21+.


The bar at Forgery

If you’re looking for a more casual vibe, stop by this South of Market jem, Forgery. Forgery has a clean, open bi-level layout with exposed brick and high ceilings. You can even nab the upstairs loft overlooking the bar if you want a semi-private section for a crew of up to 30.

Azucar Lounge

Comfortable, casual furniture at Azucar Lounge

This SOMA district spot is part neighborhood lounge, part bar and part Mexican restaurant. Stop by for some fresh Mexican inspired street food and Latin inspired cocktails in this welcoming space that will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a friend's home. Azucar boasts two bars, one specializing in Agave spirits so you can get your tequila on!

Acme Bar

The Acme Bar

Acme Bar is perfect for the summer with it’s exterior patio. Or seek refuge from the heat inside and enjoy the quirky drinking puns and phrases that decorate the walls. Either way, stop by this low key neighborhood bar for some spirits or ask the staff sommelier for help picking a new wine.
