Social Kitchen is located near Golden Gate Park, where the N-Judah MUNI line crosses 9th Avenue. This stylish brew pub, on a much improved site operated by a string of other businesses in years past, opened in the Spring of 2010. Food choices include vegan dishes and meat items as well, so that most any group will find food to order. Their beers, brewed in the mezzanine-level brewery, range from, Belgians to lagers, IPA’s and assorted other special brews. They sell growlers to go.
There is a flat screen TV and a big screen projected TV to show sports events with no sound. But Social does not have a sports bar vibe. The front communal bar area is conducive to socializing and the main bar and two levels of dining tables offer a warm pub feel.
Extras: Golden Gate Park is a few blocks north. If it’s a rare sunny day, you could wander through the park and down the park panhandle to Magnolia Pub for the next stop.
