This is a great place to go if you want to stay away from all the trendy poser-type bars...just a comfy neighborhood place to get a drink at happy hour...not pretentious whatsoever. Word of caution: the sangria is very tasty and potent.....drink it s-l-o-w!! Parking is non-existent.....and it can be loud at times.

Pros: Good Sangria at Happy Hour

Cons: No parking nearby....but that's the case everywhere in this city.

As you know my favorite beer is Chimay which this place has. They are known for their sangria but that gives me a hangover. Good music and great location.

I've been going to Dalva ever since I got a job in the Mission and have always enjoyed the sangria, selection of beers on tap, and the classy but mellow atmosphere compared to nearby hangouts. I recently had a bon voyage party there (thanks to the awesome manager, Eric) and my love for Dalva has grown. We had a great setup in the back room, serving food early in the night, then transforming it into a nano-version of "1984" a la cat club. This was only possible b/c the bartenders were so cool about letting me play my 80s playlist. Thanks to Craig, Jimmy, and Peter for helping my friends and I have some seriously good times. Dalva deserves an '11' on this rate-o-meter.

Pros: cool bartenders, great manager, back room

Cons: can't think of any

A bar with no pretensions, yet no grime. Very chill place to talk with friends over a cold beer or a generously poured cocktail. Great DJs playing mellow records on Tuesday nights. I highly recommend as a regular go-to bar.

Pros: Music, Not too crowded, Authentic

Dalva is a local favorite that never seems to have a dull night. Tiki Jim will serve you up a strong one before you go in the back to play a game of poker. Best night is Wednesdays for the Red Wine Social, where Toph One dishes out the dirtyest, delicous old-school hip hop & anything goes mash-up. Interesting, diverse crowd & a jukebox & big screen during happy hour.

Pros: Good DJ's, Good sangria

Dalva has been around for a while. Even during the Marina invasion days, the staff here remained cool. Great place to meet up for drinks and a good cosmo.

Pros: staff

Dalva is a dark and narrow, yet excellent bar with glowing lamps and wood tables,...one where you can hide out, relax, meet an old friend to catch up with over a beer. Very fun on tuesday nights, when Vinnie Esparza spins old soul and funk. I'd recommend it to anyone who just doesn't feel like Ruby Sky tonight....
