If a clown car company decided to open a wine bar, Bacchus Wine Bar would be the prototype. It’s a tiny spot on Hyde Street that seems like there wouldn’t be enough room for your typical Bachelor watch group, but somehow crams in more people than your Bachelor season finale viewing party. And even when this place is packed, it’s a fun spot to enjoy a few glasses of wine and listen to some vinyl for a very quick date or while you wait for a table at Elephant Sushi.

Elephant Sushi in Russian Hill usually has a bit of a wait, so try to head there on the early side (they open at 6).
