We’re not sure what it is about this part of town and bars for LA’s biggest rivals, but San Francisco Saloon is a spot for all things 49ers, Warriors, and Giants. It’s a big, dark bar on Pico that, outside of game times (when the Saloon basically becomes the Bay Area), is a neighborhood spot that plays ’80s rock, serves a solid burger, and has affordable prices that you don’t often see in LA. Sit at the bar, get a burger and a beer, and chat with the bartender about what this part of Pico was like in 1988. There’s also a parking lot out back, which is always a plus.
