We're less than a week away from the start of the World Series, which kicks off next Tuesday, Oct. 22. And while the Giants and A's may not have made the Series this year, baseball fans will still want to catch all the action as the Washington Nationals take on either the New York Yankees or the Houston Astros for the title.
Using Yelp data and our own methodology, Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best sports bars to view baseball's biggest spectacle.
1. The Bar on Dolores
Topping the list is The Bar on Dolores. Located at 1600 Dolores St. (at the corner of Dolores and 29th streets) in Noe Valley, The Bar on Dolores is the highest-rated sports bar in San Francisco, boasting 4.5 stars out of 60 reviews on Yelp. You can catch the game on one of this spot's 12 flat-screen TVs.
2. The Corner Spot
Next up is the Inner Sunset's The Corner Spot, situated at 1368 Irving St. This sports bar is equipped with plenty of TVs, free pool for commercial breaks, and a menu of Vietnamese-inspired pub grub. With four stars out of 68 reviews on Yelp, it has proven to be a local favorite for its weekday happy hours.
3. Nick's Crispy Tacos
Russian Hill's Nick's Crispy Tacos, located at 1500 Broadway, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving it four stars out of 3,293 reviews. With plenty of TVs, this taqueria/sports bar is a perennial Polk Street favorite — and the Series just happens to kick off on Taco Tuesday, when soft tacos and beers are two for $7.
Finally, there's Kilowatt, which has earned four stars out of 446 reviews on Yelp. You can find this old-school dive — which offers craft beer, flat-screen TVs and pool — in the Mission, at 3160 16th St.
