In the city of San Francisco, diversity is one of the most common themes with a huge array of residents and establishments found all over the city. One exception to this trend might be the neighborhood to the north of the city called the Marina District. The Marina District is found right alongside the shoreline on the northern border of San Francisco. The area is beautiful with amazing views right over the water to Alcatraz and the Gold Gate Bridge. The Palace of Fine Arts is also one of the defining landmarks in the neighborhood of the Marina District. Despite the wide array of personalities throughout the city, the type of residents and characters that are commonly found in the Marina District follows strictly along the stereotypes of young frat bros.

The Marina District is stereotypically known amongst locals as the hunting grounds for polo shirts, pastel shorts, and backwards baseball hats. This makes the Marina District the perfect location for all of the young grads congregating in bars around the city. For those looking for a rowdy and exciting night out, the Marina District will deliver. Here are a few of these establishments to check out.

1. Monaghan's

Monaghan's is one of the bars around the Marina District that was last rennovated back in 2015. That rennovation upgraded Monaghan's to include new pool tables and jukeboxes. They even started serving free popcorn. While Monaghan's used to be an unruly and rowdy establishment, they have transitioned to become more tame and comfortable in the past few years. The drinks on the menu at Monaghan's are pretty affordable and a whole array of options from mixed drinks to craft beers are available. In addition, Monaghan's has become quite popular with many people that have spent time in Chicago and is particularly partial to Blackhawks and Bulls fans.

Monaghan's can be found located at 3243 Pierce St.

2. Bar None

Bar None is one of the most popular bars amongst the younger post college crowd. This establishment is famous for their two dollar "secret shot" and the daily specials. The drinks here come pretty cheap and is definitely one of the reasons why this bar attracts a rowdy crowd. In addition, there are also arcade games around the bar and a beer pong table set up and going most nights. As the name might suggest, a night out a Bar None is always pretty wild and for those that aren't careful, is an easy way to black out. The cheap drinks here are pretty dangerous so take precaution to drink responsibly.

Bar None can be found located at 1980 Union St.

3. White Rabbit Bar

What used to be known as the Marina Club Matrix has now been closed and reborn as White Rabbit Bar. The management is still the same PlumpJack team which decided to close down Matrix and replace it with White Rabbit Bar. This new establishment has familar aspects to Matrix and is a great bar to visit that has comfy couches and a fireplace. One of the reasons why it is so popular is the amazing DJ which makes it easy to drink and party the night away. The White Rabbit Bar is quickly become a new name in the Marina District and while it is not trying to recreate the Matrix, it has taken its prior popularity and creating new success for itself.

The White Rabbit Bar can be found located at 3138 Fillmore St.
