5 great bars where time stands still in San Francisco

1) Dogpatch Saloon

Opened in 1912 and just over 100 years old. The space has been redesigned with much vintage appeal, but the actual bar and stained glass windows have been retained. A good spot for drinks only – it’s casual, no frills and plenty of seating. It’s also dog-friendly so you might see plenty of pups.
