When things start to get rowdy at El Rio, Virgil’s is right next door. The atmosphere here is much more chill, and the drinks are stiff and cheap. They also have a massive outdoor patio with a lot of picnic tables, strings lights, and heat lamps, too. (You can make reservations for parties of five or more). Just know it’s cash only.

El Rio in Bernal Heights is one of our old reliables - especially with it’s excellent outdoor space.
Nights can start pretty quietly at the Make-Out Room in the Mission, but things at this bar and dance club can escalate fast.
