5 New SF Spots to Hit Up in December

White Cap


Much like Lower Pac Heights needed a cool new bar, so did the Outer Sunset. And apparently the surfers agreed because now, just a block and a half from Ocean Beach, there’s White Cap, a cozy bar that feels much more grown up than you’d expect from a couple of guys who make it a point to paddle out as often as they can.

Grab a seat at the bar, which feels as light and bright as a bar in the foggy Outer Sunset can, or—if you’re craving cozy—head to the seating area in the back where you’ll find walls covered with dark, reclaimed wood, turquoise leather banquettes, and the best thing of all: a modern fireplace.

As far as drinks go, there are eight specialty cocktails ($12) that will rotate seasonally, a small sherry program, as well as a decent selection of beer and wines by the glass.

The service is friendly, the vibe is laid back, and if you live anywhere around White Cap, you’ll probably find yourself there often. But even if you don’t, it’s worth a trip out to the beach. Maybe dip your toes in the water while you’re there and remind yourself of why you live in SF in the first place.
