Whether it’s for a Warriors game, a concert, or some modernized version of the Ice Capades, you’re probably going to end up at the Chase Center at some point. But your whole experience shouldn’t start and end at the place you scan your ticket, which is why we have this guide. It’s filled with lots of incredible spots to eat and drink that are all within a 20-minute walk of the arena. And as much as we love Gott’s and Dumpling Time, we aren’t including the restaurants you can easily find within Thrive City.

The Spots

Cafe Okawari

$$$$
Japanese  in  Soma
$$$$ 236 Townsend St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 19 minutes

If you’re looking for a casual, easy, and reliable spot near the Chase Center, Cafe Okawari has your back. The Japanese restaurant in SoMa is one of the best spots in the city for katsu chicken sandwiches and Japanese curry. But the all-day cafe also has plenty of other things you should get into, like protein bowls, unadon, and soups, plus housemade yuzu sodas and hojicha lattes.

Ungrafted

$$$$
$$$$ 2419 3rd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 13 minutes

There are plenty of great wine bars in the city, but one that we particularly love is Ungrafted, especially if we’re looking to wine up before a game. That’s because the Dogpatch spot has an impressive wine list, plenty of parklet seating, and a menu of things like charcuterie and cheese plates, salt and vinegar fries, pastas, and sandwiches.

Besharam

$$$$
Indian  in  Dogpatch
$$$$ 1275 Minnesota St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 21 minutes

This Dogpatch restaurant serves up excellent Gujarati dishes inside the industrial Minnesota Street Project building. Everything on the newly revamped menu is entirely vegetarian and served tapas-style, which is a great thing for us: it’s now easier than ever to mix and match plates from each of the menu’s four sections (divided by cities within Gujarat) - and to order a lot. Watch as your table becomes brimming with everything from blue cheese-stuffed paratha and fiery charred eggplant stew to the ceramic carafe of herby lemon-tamarind water you pour inside small pani puri puffs.

Death By Taco

$$$$
$$$$ 301 King St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 14 minutes

If you’re taking Muni to go to the Chase Center, consider starting your night with tacos and margaritas at Death By Taco - it’s right across the street from the 4th and King Street station in China Basin. Here, a single taco is a steep $7-$9, but the quality of the ingredients makes it worth it. There are 14 tacos on the menu, but we recommend going for the Dirty Girl with braised pork and spicy sauce, the battered and fried fish taco, or the chips and guacamole to split.

Third Rail

$$$$
$$$$ 628 20th St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 12 minutes

Sure, you may already have plans to eat all the hot dogs, fried chicken sandwiches, and pretzels you can stand while at the Chase Center, but it still wouldn’t hurt to have a light bite ahead of time. So head to Third Rail. This Dogpatch bar makes great cocktails, plus their own jerky you’ll enjoy with your drinks. We like the Red Eye with coffee and the candied one with brown sugar and chili flakes. They also do shot, beer, and jerky combos for $12 - follow one drink with the other and take the jerky with you on your short walk to the arena.

Mission Rock Resort

$$$$
$$$$ 817 Terry a Francois Blvd

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 2 minutes

Mission Rock Resort is located only a few steps from the Chase Center, which makes it a convenient spot to meet before a game. This place tends to get crowded on game nights with people in blue and gold jerseys, so grab a cocktail and a seat at the bar while waiting for a table overlooking the water. It’s not the cheapest spot to get food (the burger is $18), but you’re probably already spending a ton of money on tickets anyway. We recommend sharing the fries or the Thai chili-glazed chicken wings if you want a pre-game snack.

Susie Lacocque

Long Bridge Pizza Co.

$$$$
AmericanPizzaItalian  in  Dogpatch
$$$$ 2347 3rd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 11 minutes

One reason we love Long Bridge Pizza is they make their pies with a thin sourdough crust and Early Girl tomato sauce. The other reason: this casual, spacious spot is the kind of place you’ll want to get friends together for a beer and a slice before the Warriors game. You should also know they do square pies on Mondays and double patty burgers on Tuesdays.

Emma Shepler

Little Skillet

$$$$
AmericanSouthern  in  Soma
$$$$ 360 Ritch St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 18 minutes

You’d be fine coming to Little Skillet with a group before heading to the Chase Center - they have a huge bar and TVs to watch the pregame show. And when you inevitably start to get hungry, you can also grab great Southern food like fried chicken and po’boys.

Lauren Edith Anderson

Magnolia Brewing Company

$$$$
$$$$ 2505 3rd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 15 minutes

Aside from the main taproom, Magnolia Brewing Company has a massive side room with bleacher seating, which makes hanging out here feel like you’re at a pep rally. Show up early with all of your friends, talk stats, and see if you can try every beer they have on tap before you head to the arena.

Tadu Ethiopian Kitchen

$$$$ 484 Ellis St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 11 minutes

The Ethiopian restaurant is just a short walk from the Chase Center, but that’s not the only reason you should head here. Soft, tangy injera, comforting veggie combos, and excellent chicken tibs make Tadu a great choice for a casual meal. And really, you can’t go wrong with anything you get here.

Susie Lacocque

Sea Star

$$$$
$$$$ 2289 3rd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 11 minutes

The nautical-themed dive bar in the Dogpatch is as versatile as they come, which also makes it a great spot to meet up before an event at the arena. Sit at the bar and make good conversation over punny cocktails like Mezcal Aloe Mode. You can also watch sports on one of the TVs or play pool in the back. Either way, the drinks will be great, the vibes will be right, and you’ll leave for the Chase Center happy.

Mary Lagier

The Ramp

$$$$
AmericanSeafoodBBQ  in  Dogpatch
$$$$ 855 Terry a Francois Blvd

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 5 minutes

The Ramp has one of the best patios in the whole city. It’s huge and overlooks the Bay, and is a great spot to meet up with a group and drink before heading to the Chase Center. They also have live music Thursday-Sunday, weekend brunch, and a pretty eclectic weekday menu of things like garlic noodles, shrimp pad thai, and BBQ ribs.

Piccino

$$$$
$$$$ 1001 Minnesota St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 16 minutes

If you’re looking for a nearby spot to celebrate a special occasion or birthday before a game or show, try Piccino. The Italian-Californian restaurant is housed in a yellow Victorian cottage and does well-executed pasta dishes and thin-crust pizzas. They also have a light-filled dining room and a large patio on the side.

Marcella's Lasagneria & Cucina

$$$$
Italian  in  Dogpatch
$$$$ 1099 Tennessee St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 14 minutes

The family-run Dogpatch lasagneria is only open for lunch, which probably means you’re coming here befor one of those rare day events at the arena. But you should still know about Marcella’s anyway because their lasagna is the best. Unless you get a whole sheet that serves six, each lasagna is made for one and is roughly the size of a small, thick novel. We like the abruzzo with housemade sausage.

Susie Lacocque

Dogpatch Saloon

$$$$
$$$$ 2496 3rd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 15 minutes

This dog-friendly neighborhood corner bar on Third St. and 22nd is a good, chill spot to kill some time over a beer or cocktail while you wait for friends. During Happy Hour, pints and well drinks are $2 off until 7pm - it’s definitely a deal you won’t get at the arena.

Susie Lacocque

Anchor Brewing Company

$$$$ 1705 Mariposa St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 19 minutes

The main reason your cousins are visiting is so they can watch their home team face off against the Warriors, but they’re also here because they’ve never been to San Francisco. Take them to the city’s most famous brewery in Potrero Hill, and let them try all the ales, porters, and lagers at Anchor Brewing. Then, head to the stadium where you’ll all end up overpaying for the same thing.

Mary Lagier

Garaje

$$$$
Mexican  in  Soma
$$$$ 475 3rd St.

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 22 minutes

The casual Mexican restaurant in SoMa serves really good zapatos, a riceless burrito stuffed with jack cheese and fillings like steak, fries, and pico de gallo. In order words, beeline to Garaje if you want a flavorful, hearty meal that’ll keep you going for more than four quarters. Other things you can order: burgers, tacos, and carne asada fries. They also have a phenomenal craft beer list, a line that moves relatively quickly, and plenty of small tables for you to sit at while you drink your pint.

Mary Lagier

21st Amendment Brewery & Restaurant

$$$$
AmericanBar Food  in  Soma
$$$$ 563 2nd St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 20 minutes

We end up at 21st Amendment for a lot of the same reasons that we go to Garaje on a game day (or any day, for that matter) - good beer and solid food. The cubano and the burger are both great, and the brewpub also has things like tacos, pizzas, wings, and onion rings. Enjoy your meal and a drink inside or out on their covered parklet.

Haley Heramb

Casey’s Pizza

$$$$
$$$$ 1170 4th St

Walking Time To The Chase Center: 10 minutes

Casey’s Pizza in Mission Bay is a neighborhood spot that makes great Neapolitan-style pies. Start with the burrata, which comes with crostini and a nice lemony arugula salad, before making your way to the pizza list. They make everything from margherita to pepperoni and arugula to a funghi pizza loaded with mushrooms and fresh thyme.
