SIP BAR & LOUNGE is a classic, urban cocktail lounge & weekend nightclub offering an array of spirits, beer, wine, visual & musical entertainment with an unpretentious & welcoming feel.
From the moment you step out of your cab, step inside from the bustling Broadway thoroughfare in through our doors, into our gently-lit & welcoming space & are greeted by our door staff, to the time you sit down at your table & meet our bottle servers or to your first exchanges with our friendly bartenders, you will see that we are committed to fostering a fun, diverse & inclusive environment- the same values for which the City of San Francisco is renown.
Designed with modern, but classic minimalism in mind, the bar features a spacious 1,000 square-foot Main Bar area with 16 foot high ceilings, a 30 foot long full bar & an elevated DJ platform overlooking both levels of our venue. Leather banquette mirrored booths line the wall opposite the bar, below a 360" video projection wall. A few steps up, our Mezzanine lounge area provides an intimate, velvet-curtain-lined 600 square-foot VIP lounge furnished with leather sofas, ottomans & candle-lit coffee tables. The Mezzanine features it's own full bar and windows overlooking Powell Street. While often open to all guests, the Mezzanine is the perfect space to host private affairs & is available for use at reasonable rates. Spacious in comparison to many other San Francisco bars, SIP still maintains a warm feel through a combination of soft ambient lighting, texture & chocolate hues.
SIP is a locally-owned, small business; medium in size for a San Francisco bar or lounge. We handle all of our own marketing, DJ talent, VIP table & private event booking internally to ensure you have the best experience possible. We do not regularly work with club promoters, so you can count on the fact that as a guest or event organizer, you will experience consistent, high-quality service, never have to pay a cover charge or stand in a long line to get inside. The bar does not impose a dress code or charge a cover for admission with rare exception to bona-fide fundraiser events, for which the bar does not accept any door proceeds. SIP is open Friday & Saturday nights from 9pm to 2am. Closed Sunday through Thursday, but available 7 days a week to host happy hour functions, networking events, charitable fundraisers or for just about any type of celebration you can imagine!
