January 20 – February 18
As an Aquarius, you’re highly intellectual and a deep thinker. Without mental stimulation, you find yourself quite bored. And, despite being a “water carrier,” Aquarians are actually air signs. Aquarius-born will be happy at Foreign Cinema in the Mission, where you can enjoy an exceptional meal al fresco and films projected on the patio wall at night. For drinks, Aquarius signs will find themselves plenty stimulated at Fort Mason’s The Interval at Long Now, where books and artwork line the walls from floor to ceiling.
February 19 – March 20
Pisces are very creative and are the most passionate of all the signs about the arts. They are often musically inclined and lead a life inspired by romance. Pisces will certainly feel inspired by the dishes at In Situ, SFMOMA’s sleek, ground-floor bistro, where former French Laundry chef, Corey Lee, has collaborated with international culinary legends to craft a menu replicating famous creative dishes. For drinks, the Tenderloins PianoFight features a full-service bar and hosts a wide array of shows highlighting great theater, improv, comedy, and live music—certain to get a Pisces’ creative juices flowing.
March 21 – April 19
Aries are confident, enthusiastic, and one of the most active zodiac signs. But Aries are also notoriously impatient, meaning hour-long wait times won’t fly with you (which is tough in a city that thrives off of them). Aries will love the easy table booking experience of Mina Test Kitchen in the Marina. The evolving prix fixe meal experience from James Beard award winner Michael Mina currently showcases meals from the Italian coast. For drinks, Aries will find themselves in their element at Palm House in the Marina, where the atmosphere is loud and lively enough for an Aries to shine while hanging out with friends (or making new ones).
April 20 – May 20
Practical and patient, Tauruses are earth signs who consider touch and taste to be the most important senses. You enjoy being as hands-on as possible, especially when it comes to cooking, which is why Korean BBQ is your ideal meal of choice. Gather your friends—Taurus or not—for hands-on grilling at Han II Kwan in the Outer Richmond. To quench your thirst, head to Over Proof, the bar upstairs from ABV. This reservations-only bar slows things down (perfect for Tauruses) with a four-course cocktail menu that changes every three months, along with the bar’s decor.
May 21 – June 20
A social butterfly who is always ready for fun… but notoriously indecisive. Being an air sign, Geminis also love to spend as much time outdoors as they can get. SoMa StrEat Food Park ticks off everything on a Gemini’s wishlist: multiple food trucks (so you don’t have to commit to one thing), outdoor eating, plus weekly trivia, weekend DJs, and more fun events perfect for socializing. For drinks, Geminis will feel most comfortable at El Techo de Lolinda, one of SF’s few rooftop bars with stellar views of the city both during the day and at night.
June 21 – July 22
Being a crab symbol and water sign, it’s no secret that you love to be in or near water whenever possible. That’s why Cancers will feel right at home at La Mar, a Peruvian restaurant that sits on San Francisco’s waterfront and features satisfying seafood dishes. Cancers also happen to be very sensitive and emotional, so you’ll love the cozy atmosphere at Amélie wine bar on Polk Street, where a glass of wine from their extensive selection will have you discussing your feelings in no time.
July 23 – August 22
A fire sign, Leos are warm-hearted, dramatic, and enjoy treating themselves to the finer things in life. That’s why the sleek dining room of Pabu in the Financial District is the perfect spot for you. Chefs Ken Tominaga and Michael Mina paired up to create this Izakaya-style Japanese restaurant, which serves up some of the most luxurious and elegant sushi in the city. To appease your dramatic side, you’ll find The Grid, a Tron-inspired, reservation-only speakeasy inside SoMa’s Coin-Op game room–right up your alley.
August 23 – September 22
An Earth sign, Virgos are hardworking and extremely detail-oriented (a nicer way of saying “a perfectionist”). They will be both thoroughly impressed and can let their mind rest at Liholiho Yacht Club. The Nob Hill restaurant is nothing short of perfection–from the attentive service, to the sleek decor, to the beautiful Hawaiian-inspired menu. For drinks, Virgos will enjoy the inventive cocktails and the bi-annually changing menu at Trick Dog.
September 23 – October 22
Libra’s are one of the most social signs and prefer to be surrounded by their crew than to do things solo—luckily, you are pretty popular! As a Libra, you also have no problem sharing and enjoy spending time in the great outdoors whenever possible. If you aren’t hanging out in Hayes Valley already, you should be. You and your friends will feel most comfortable at Suppenküche, an authentic German restaurant with plates big enough to share and German beers served the authentic way—in a glass boot! If you’re in the mood for just drinks, head down the street and grab a punchbowl to share on Anina’s outdoor patio.
October 23 – November 21
Scorpio-born are passionate and assertive people who are right at home in dark spaces and places—which is why you’ll love the intimate dining experience at Flores in the Marina. Grab a margarita at the bar while you wait for your table to be ready (you’re a pro at getting the bartender’s attention in a crowded room) before enjoying delicious Mexican bites in the romantically-lit dining area. If it’s just drinks you’re after, you’ll totally dig the Speakeasy vibes at Bourbon and Branch.
November 22 – December 21
Adventurous and optimistic, Sagittarius-born will try most anything once. Sags will have a blast at AsiaSF, where the servers take your order until the lights dim, at which point they become the stars of the show and the entertainment for the night. For drinks, because you’re the life of any party, have your crew meet you at Pagan Idol, where the tiki vibes and punch bowls are flowing.
December 22 – January 19
Capricorns are goal-oriented, hard working, and strong protectors of their loved ones. You are also serious by nature, so to bring out your playful side (you do have one hidden deep down), head to Mission Bowling Club for brunch—you can’t commit to dinner since you have no clue what time you’ll be finished at the office—and a round of bowling. For drinks, you’ll love new bespoke cocktail bar 98 Turk (formerly BIIG) in the Tenderloin. Limited to only 25 patrons at a time, you’ll get to sit back and relax while the bartender creates a custom cocktail for you to sip in the rustic yet glamorous setting. And the bar encourages no use of cellphones, so you’ll get a rare chance to unplug.
