16 Watering Holes Perfect For Day Drinking In S.F.!

Sometimes, you just have to work on that fake cough, play a little hooky, and head out the door in search of some fun in the sun … accompanied by a mid-day margarita, of course. Thankfully, our fine city has plenty of day-drinking-friendly spots where you can do just that (and more).
From hidden patios to minimalist rooftops, you can awaken your inner bon vivant and lollygag alfresco while contemplating the beauty of the light glinting off your frosty glass. And, if you should feel inclined, a game of boozy bowling or spirited ping-pong under the influence perhaps? One warning: While a day spent buzzed may be decadently louche, we advise sipping slowly and hydrating frequently (safety first, kids). Without further ado, our top 16 list on where to indulge in a little liquor before 4 p.m. — we won't judge. Hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
