Decant SF is a good last-minute date option in SoMa. It’s both a bottle shop and a wine bar, and if you’re here to drink, you can have them open a bottle you purchase or choose from a short list of options by the glass. There’s also a fridge with things like cheese and meats that you can buy, and when you do, they’ll set up your choices with some crackers and jams. So instead of trying to recreate this at home and realizing you don’t have a corkscrew or having your weird roommate refuse to leave the living room, just head here.
