Found this cozy little bar while visiting and had the time of my life! A great place to chummy up with the locals if you're in town!

My Bar – 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!

Very Cool – Very nice lounge/bar. Has a distinct NY feel. Great drink menu with a huge liquor selection. The decor is very cool and the music is completely original.

Great lounge! – 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.

good for post happy hour – 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

It's great! – 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.

Best Little Bar in SoMa – 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.

sweet place – 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!

pleasant surprise – 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.

Great fun in a tiny slice of Soma – 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.

"Wish" I had more money... – 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.
