Hayes Valley can occasionally feel like it was designed by a committee of lifestyle bloggers, and Anina fits right into all the neighborhood’s cliches. Except that it’s an actually fun place to hang out They have punch bowls and a string light-filled side patio that’s even better during the day than it is at night. You can also reserve those outdoor tables, so when there’s too much sun at 2pm on a Friday to consider staying at the office, you can be prepared. It’s also a great spot to grab a drink while waiting for a table at A Mano or Monsieur Benjamin.
