Located a few blocks off of the 101 on the corner of 9th Street and Folsom Street in the heart of San Francisco’s SOMA Nightlife District. Azucar Lounge features fresh Mexican inspired street food and Latin inspired cocktails all made using the freshest ingredients available.

Azucar is spacious and welcome escape from busy City life. Our designer has set up vignettes to feel warm and comfortable in our home away from home retreat. Our lounge is great for office happy hours, wedding celebrations, birthday parties and more!

We are open 7 days a week with our kitchen closing one hour before the bar and have just recently started serving brunch on Sundays from 11am – 3pm.

We utilize a local music service called Rockbot, which allows all our guests the opportunity to control the music being played at Azucar.
