San Franciscans love their wine.  Though the Napa wineries are a great destination, fortunately for city dwellers, a good wine bar in San Francisco is never more than a stones throw away.  One can find a fantastic selection of wines (paired – or not – with food), knowledgeable staff and lovely ambiance. The choices in San Francisco are limitless. Haute Living presents the top 5 wine bars in San Francisco.

1 Press Club

Press Club is a beautiful underground wine bar where you can experience a range of experiences all in one place. Go for small bites like the cheese plates, a charcuterie platter or a chocolate dessert paired with a half or full glass of your favorite wine. It's the quintessential place for a night alone or an evening with friends where you can take in the gorgeous setting at the bar or lounge area.

2 District

District is the wine bar in SOMA with the best looking crowd.  The after-work scene is always buzzing at this uber cool space. The wine bar is in the heart of the space with high tables on one side and lounge seating on the other. Contemporary street-inspired art lines the brick walls, and the modern chandeliers give the space warmth despite the high industrial ceilings that make it feel like a cool converted factory.  Most importantly, wines are divine.

3 RN74

How can one go wrong at the luxe wine bar of the Millenium Tower?  RN74 is a haute, spacious, tastefully designed area with ample seating - ideal for apres-work wine or cocktails. The wine list is quite extensive; don't be surprised if takes awhile to look through the book that lists over 3,000 bottles!  You can also peer up at the last-bottle board--an electronic train board from Italy that ticks out a list of 100 bottles under $100.

A highly recommend place for date night!

4 Bar Agricole

Bar Agricole was selected as a 2012 James Beard finalist for Outstanding Bar Program for a reason. Rather than trying to recreate the wheel on every cocktail, bartenders here generally look towards the past for inspiration.  Aside from the creative cocktail program, this "Urban Tavern" offers a carefully crafted selection of French wines.  Between the wine, cocktails and bites, you'll surely return again and again.

5 Eno Wine Bar

Eno is a pleasant new surprise in the heart of Union Square, a quaint yet lively space with just the right amount of local SF character. Wines are sourced from SF winemakers (urban-esque SF spots like Bluxome winery and so on) along with some interesting choices from across the globe. To top the lovely ambiance and delectable wines, a short and sweet bar menu is the perfect compliment for those wanting to nibble. A must-stop-after-work-spot or anytime that you need a break from the downtown beat.
