About Fig & Thistle
This little wine bar sits unassumingly in an alleyway just off the main drag in buzzing Hayes Valley. The interior of the small space feels cozy, with a handful of unique seating options, such as a shabby-chic bunk bed and a sleek dark wood-lined bar area. There is a selection of local cheese and charcuterie to nosh on along with owner Angel Davis’s concise and frequently changing list of bottles.
About the Fig & Thistle Wine List
Davis is native to San Francisco — a rarity!— and the selections on her list lean heavily in the direction of the local with a smattering of compelling bottles from elsewhere. She also has her head wrapped around the sake game, offering regular tastings and a fun monthly club offering two inspired selections from her curiousity bin. Perhaps where Davis shines best is in her programming; there is always an exciting event happening on her turf, be it Winemaker Wednesday, weekly tarot readings, or themed pop-up featuring industry friends.
