The Hemlock Tavern is a bar and live music venue located at 1131 Polk Street, in between Post & Sutter Streets, in San Francisco’s Lower Polk neighborhood. We’re open 7 days a week from 5pm – 2am.
You must be at least 21 years of age with valid ID to enter. Credit cards are accepted and we also have an ATM on premises. Happy Hourruns daily from 4-7pm, with $1 off all beers and cocktails. Some days we have a deejay spinning records from 6:00pm-8:30pm. The Hemlock’s main bar area is a 360° walk-around on two levels with bar seating and communal tables. For the modern tobacco enthusiast, we have a legal, heated smoking lounge into which you can bring your drink. The smoking lounge is mostly enclosed but shielded from the street by some lovely plants and shrubs. We also sell $1 bags of hot peanuts for your snacking enjoyment. Go ahead and throw those shells on the floor. No, really!
