Football season is upon us and you don't want to miss out on any of the action. When you can't make it to the game in person, still feel like you're cheering on the sidelines by surrounding yourself with a crowd. Whether the 49ers are away or you couldn't snatch up a ticket, watching the game at a great San Francisco sports bar will be the next best thing. And with this Sunday's game documenting Moss's return to the purple and gold field of the Minnesota Vikings, you won't want to miss a play.
Double Play Bar and Grill
2401 16th St.
San Francisco, CA 94103
A trip to Double Play Bar and Grill will provide more than just baseball coverage. This sports bar covers all things San Francisco with constant streaming of the city's sports teams. Come on out on Sundays, Mondays or Thursdays to watch the 49ers take the field. With five TVs, four of which are high-definition, you can watch the game from any seat in the house. Also, the 61-inch big screen has every down on display. Take a break at halftime to shoot some pool or just sip on one of the 12 beers on tap.
The Taco Shop @ Underdogs
1824 Irving St.
San Francisco, CA 94122
Although the name seems a bit unassuming for a sports bar, The Taco Shop is a great place for some Sunday football fun. Opening the bar early on game days, show up to begin a different form of tailgating from that done in the parking lots. The 49ers party awaits your arrival on 10 plasma TVs. And if the team performs well enough to make it to the Super Bowl, The Taco Shop hosts a Super Bowl party for whoever the final two teams will be.
7 Mile House
2800 Bayshore Blvd.
Brisbane, CA 94005
The historic 7 Mile House has your ticket to the Sunday football game. With a 49ers party that includes $1.50 oysters, $5 bloody marys, $14 bottomless mimosas and sangrias and $15 buckets of Bud and Bud Light, you won't go thirsty. Big screens surround as you munch away at some delicious bar grub. No matter the outcome of the game, you will leave a happy customer.
998 Sutter St.
San Francisco, CA 94109
Ace's is a bit of a dive bar in the Nob Hill neighborhood that once beyond those doors, transforms into a sports-fan haven. You can catch every angle of the 49ers game on one of the five flat-screen plasma TVs and stay hydrated with happy hour specials all day, every day. This includes $3 16-ounce Buds and Bud Lights and $3 well drinks. Everyone can cheer on that deal.
24 Willie Mays Plaza
San Francisco, CA 94107
Just take a glance at the Public House website and you can immediately see the spread of televisions that line the walls. Not only can you follow the 49ers game, but you can keep your eyes on other big games going on at the same time. This bar provides 22 huge TVs for your viewing pleasure and 24 beers on tap to give you every available option. Also, many of the featured brews are local so you can not only support your hometown team but a local business as well.
