Dalva is a Mission cocktail bar that hits the sweet spot: it’s affordable, impressive, and relaxing all at once. The decades-old dive (which got less divey and more swanky after a makeover) works best if you come with a date since most of the tables are two-tops. But if you’re alone, it’s easy to scoot onto a barstool and drink fantastic cocktails, which achieve the rare SF feat of costing $14 or less. Coming here before or after dinner nearby is always a great idea—the wavy orange mural, geometric tiles, and more wood than a sauna make it easy to kick back and order more than one round.
