El Rio is a San Francisco institution that’s always ready to party. This Bernal Heights bar has a full calendar that includes themed dance parties, drag shows, live music, and ping-pong out on their fantastic outdoor patio. When you get tired of bobbing your head to loud music or drinking cheap cocktails, you can play pool or shuffleboard. There are not many guarantees we can provide in this world, but going to El Rio means you’ll either leave here happy, sweaty, or kind of buzzed—or a combination of all three.
