I can understand why some people like it. We stopped by after visiting Loft 11, don't bother. Wish is nothing bad, nice crowd, but gets easily packed, due to size. The bar takes up most of the place and the music is way loud. Theres no dance floor and its a bar folks. Anyway, my only problem is the how narrow the place is.

then this is your place. the drinks were ok but my biggest gripe is the size of the bar. i went to anu bar on 6th a couple weeks ago and even though that venue is considered small, wish is like half the size with NO dance area. and along with the size of the venue it was so packed my friends and i had tons of difficulty navigating the narrow walkway (getting bumped into and spilling drinks or having it spilled on us as we went). the dance music was decent but very average for s.f. it wasn't until a guest dj from the internationally known "dirtybirds" showed up that the music got MUCH better. unfortunately, the scenesters & amateurs had no clue about the music and the crowd began to thin out. so, other than the occasional guest dj's that may be dj'ing, there isn't any real reason to go to wish again.

Pros: occasional guest dj's

Cons: TOO small and packed, so-so music most of the time, scenesters

This place gets PACKED on weekends. I liked it a lot because of the great music being spun. However, it reminds me of an LA bar with how packed it is. I love the vibe, the music and the drinks... just regulate the door a bit.

This is by far one of the best little lounges in San Francisco! The bar staff are always on top of everything. The drinks are stiff and cheap and the DJ's are the best in the city

PROS: easy parking, cheap drinks
CONS: only two restrooms

This place serves up some awesome cocktails as well some of the best dj's above ground. I love the atmosphere and the snug dance floor and although some aren't dancing but it always seems like they would like to be dancing.
This spot is great after work, Friday nights, or after dinner at Sushi Groove.

I visited this place not too long ago. Some people there are very outgoing. I'm not much of a drinker, so I ordered up a wine cooler. Waiters are very pleasant and give great service. The crowd was well-behaved because people engaged in laughter and conversation. I find that this this be a place where you can be yourself and still mingle with the crowd. There's room for everybody!

This is a great place! I love the location, and loved the space The staff couldn't be more friendly. From what i hear, it gets extremely crowded on the weekends. I went on a weekday night, and loved it.

I love this place. Always a mainstay and always recommend it to friends. Great value on drinks, fabulous music, great ambience & decor. Crowd is diverse, fun, hip, of many races & ages, but never pretentious.

there was a good mixed crowd (maybe spilloever from the other bars and clubs in teh area). it was low-key but was still clean, classy, and had a great drinks menu. i'm used to sendig tequila down in shots, but the chamucos tequila is a great one to sip. yummmmy. both the girl and guy bartending that night gave great service. the music was a bit genric, but it was fun to see the dj and his friends dancing and having a great time in the back.

This is my new fav. lounge. I just moved here from the East Coast and love the atmosphere of this place. Great drinks (sweet leilani!) awesome bartenders, the funkiest DJ's, and really good popcorn! Sushi Groove across the street is the perfect start!

Its hard to believe that this place has been around as long as it has and this week was my first visit. Based on the reviews my expectations were set pretty high and Wish didn't disappoint. The bartenders were fast and friendly (even when I changed my mind repeatedly), the djs were awesome! and the place just has a great little vibe. My recommendation, go early and grab one of the leather couches up front and its yours for the night.

My friends and I hit this place up because it has a late happy hour and it was great. The server was very very friendly, the drinks were decent and the ambiance was ok. It wasn't too packed when we went (on a weeknight), so we were able to find a booth. I would definitely go again, espcially for a post happy hour party spot

If you're in the area or need a pre-drink before some booty shakin'- go here. Drinks are good and the bartenders are flirty, fun and attentive. The ambience is a bit dark, but great for putting you in the mood. The crowd is a good mix of people.

I've been going to wish for a few years now, and I've never had a bad time or drink there. The bartenders are great, friendly and helpful. They have the best tequila selection (they're the ONLY bar that I've found who serve my favorite - Chamucos). Great place to lounge or talk with people. Fantastic DJ's. Check out their Om Lounge on Fridays.

I loved wish! I loved the service, the bartenders are always sweet, fast, and fun! I usually go early in the week and it is just the pace I am looking for. A clean bar, mellow, friendly and comfortable. The exceptional reason for trying out wish is the service. Being a female i usually get the attitude from other females behind the bar, but not here. Rare in this city to find that. The music is usually really loungy for happy hour and 3 beers only cost me 6 bucks. Thanks wish... I will definately be back!

anyone who doesn't like this bar just doesn't like small settings. this is by far one of the best bars ive been to in SF. I grew up in the bay area, did the clubbin' scene in the 90s, am still a solid bar hopper, and found this bar stumbling from butter one night to meet a friend.

ITs great. Loungy, awesome decor, served right away when I went in (both times ive gone on saturday nights). Great people in there-met cute guys every time ive gone in there. That doesn't happen too much in SF for me sinc eI chose to stay away from the Marina.

Anyhow, this was a great bar/club. You'd like it for the fun atmosphere.

I have to admit, I didn't expect much from this bar. I hadn't even heard of it until friends suggested it as a pre-party before DNA and 1015. I didn't even expect much when I got to it, saw Holy Cow wish the iconic cow hanging down, and saw how small WISH is. But after I made it inside, saw the inviting bar and seating areas, heard the DJ pumping out fun, unusual dance tunes, and saw some people trying their damnedest to dance on the tiny dance floor...well, ok, it was small, but it was a blast! Check it out.

Went here out of curiosity while walking around SOMA before heading to DNA. Nice vibe and atmosphere. Live DJ, great music. Mainly a late 20's to late 30's crowd (I'm in my early 20's). I noticed a higher ratio of guys to girls--and girls were usually with their dates. Bartender was nice, good service. The only thing that caught me by surprise was how expensive our drinks were. I ordered 2 drinks for me and my boyfriend and it came up to about $20, but I enjoyed the drinks anyway.

If you come down here, make sure you got money to spend if you plan to drink the night away. Also remember, this is not a club, it's more of a lounge where you can sit (if you get there early enough) and drink with your friends.

Wish is by far the greatest bar in SoMa - I found Wish after reading a write-up in WallPaper Magazine - to think I live in SoMa and had never heard of it before! The staff at Wish are friendly and fast. The atmosphere is sexy, and the lighting makes everyone look great. The music is always unique and not the usual house you always hear everywhere else. This is by far my favorite bar in San Francisco.

I call this the neighborhood bar where few of us live in the neighborhood. I love it early, and the happy hour is a great bargain. My favorite nights are Monday for Solid, and Friday after work for either Om Lounge or Flavasauce. The service is simply the best in town. You get to feel like a star yet still relax in a welcoming environment. The music here is excellent every night of the week, with a who's-who of local DJ talent lining up to play. Enjoy!

the bartenders were very attentive-professional-good looking
drinks were priced really fair-especially for around here ($6 kettle vodka etc...) (around the corner-"the public" kettle vodka drinks are $8)
a huge selection of alchohol (great tequila selection)
very well worth it-
although some of the patrons were trying too hard-vapid & trendy
the people at the door were friendly

Wish is just fine before about 9:00...before that, it's mostly a neighborhood bar with friendly service, a nice vibe and good (but overpriced) drinks.

After 9:00, the later it gets the closer Wish gets to the too-horrible-to-name bar next door. God knows we need the out of town business, but I'd rather drink somewhere else when the cheap dates from Walnut Creek come rolling through the door.

And one word about the door staff: learn who lives in the neighborhood, guys. You piss off the wrong local with some lame velvet-rope move, and you're going to start getting some unwanted attention from the authorities.

This weekend was my first trip to Wish and I had an amazing experience. The bartender was awesome and the vibe even better. We came for Happy hour and decided to go to Sushi Groove for dinner. Naturally SG was packed and we forgot to make resies. The bartender suggested we order in and even called our order in for us. The SG people ran the food over and we never lifted a finger. They have a great system going on between them. It was one of the best nights I have had in the city - everyone took great care of us.

I walked in one early evening to meet up with a friend. It wasn't busy at all, but I still sat there for probably 10 - 15 minutes while the bartender chatted on the phone before even coming over to take my order. And the drink ended up tasting terrible.

Wish is just a bar, and a pretty small one at that. There are no gimmicks here. It is very well decorated with very flattering lighting. There are great places to sit if you come with friends and you get there early enough to grab some seats. The music is always consistent and the drinks are great. What separates this bar from others are the little things - particularly the staff. They go out of their way to know everyone by name and to get to know you as people. They recognize you and they recognize your drink.
The people that come are a mix of SF people, but light on the marina crowd and light on the financial crowd.

As with any bar, the weekends are not the the time to go. This is a solid bar for those who are comfortable with themselves.

I really love this place. It's a small unassuming bar where the people take great care of you. I am there every few weeks and the staff treat me like part of them. You can call ahead, or email, and they'll reserve you a nice spot on the weekend - provided they have space - so you get a little privacy amidst the weekend chaos.
Keep up the good work!

I think "drinkspilla" confused Wish with Whisper... especially since Wish doesn't have a downstairs! Wish has is a great DJ lounge (read: not club) and place to hang in SOMA. No cover, warm decor, nice staff. The weekends are pretty crowded, I have always gone here on Tuesday or Wednesday nights to chill. DJs are always solid.

I accidentally stumbled into this place and found the best service I have ever seen in a bar. The girls behind the bar are on it - coming out to the floor and bartending at the same time. Really impressive. The bar itslef is also gorgeous - dark and sexy. It was a pleasant surprise, especially after the Cow joint next door (another accidental stumble).

Wish is a nice change from the offerings in soma - it has a cozy European feel with a NYC vibe. Granted, the door guys can be a bit too much -don't make the mistake of showing up with a group of guys- although I appreciate their efforts on maintaining "the ratio". All-in-all a nice "neighborhood" lounge.

I love this place because of it's relaxed atmosphere. The drinks are awesome, the bartenders and barbacks (all chicks) are super cool and everyone goes out of their way to make sure you're having a great time. The music is awesome all the time and it looks like DJ's just stop on in for a spin...no major structure, just lots of fun.

This place sucked. First off, it was completely over crowded, the guys at the door gave our friends some lame excuse as to why we couldn't get in(he should have just said it was too crowded and we could have left). By the time we did get in, we realized it was completely not worth it.
This bar, stuck in the dotcom dream world, is decorated beautifully. But in general, the vibe sucked. Drinks were expensive and in general was just a bunch of people acting hip and cool. The scene kind of reminded me of LA, but the Hollywood scene has far less snobbery.
Not a good place for a big group, we had 20 people or so and it was too loud to carry on a conversation and the dance floor was miniscule...if that was a dance floor...

Cons: Bathroom line, Parking

This place reminds me of a freshman frat party. The crowd was, well... average at best. Basically another meat market. If you've never been here, trust me, you're not missing anything.

I frequent WISH every couple of weeks because of the GREAT Service from the beautiful people behind the bar, great music, the mixed crowd and the all around cool / relaxed atmosphere. This is a great place to meet friends after work, to go late night clubing or go alone and meet new and exciting people. WISH is not meant to be a dance club, this is place to be able to kick back and enjoy a few drinks with people in a really cool atmosphere. However, every now and then as it gets late into the night, dancing breaks out in the back by the DJ. This has definitely been a great addition to SOMA and SF for that matter. I hope to see you there!!

From the awesome staff (especially Isabel) to the Grey Goose L'Orange, Wish delivers. With .com departures, SoMa was lacking a cool place with a great vibe to hang out and groove with all the beautiful people. Wish brings some vibrancy back to the neighborhood with great drinks, good beats, and wonderful and warm management and staff. Check it out.

Guido the duck and Joezappa? Are you kidding me? Jesus Christ! I go to Wish all the time - obviously you've never been or you went into the wrong bar. Citysearch used to be trustworthy - now it's a forum for idiots.

I stopped in on Monday night for Solid - their weekly Monday party. It's awesome. The music is killer, they have great bar snacks and they do a Makers Mark monday - $4.00 anything you want with Makers...pretty cool.

I hate crowds! That said I avoid Wish on the weekends, but if you want to chill try Monday or Tuesdays. I especially had a good time on Tuesday. The music made me feel like I was in "Jackie Brown", funky, funky, funky. Just had to write to say thanks for a good time.

Pros: music on tuesdays, fun, relaxing

Cons: weekends too crowded, dorky guys sometimes, holy cow next door

Everyone's a critic, I see. I have been to Wish a number of times, most recently this week for a night out bar hopping.
This is one of my favorites - a quiet bar in soma (during the week) with great lighting, music, and bartenders. If you need to be entertained by lots of people watching, go to the Marina. This one is much more chill.

Pros: Not the Marina

Wish is great for what it is. The weekend atmosphere is very different from the weekdays. If you want to dance, come on the weekends. The weekdays are great because they are chill and good to meet up w/ your friends after work for a cocktail. Service is great. Just what SOMA was waiting for.
