Best bar food, Mission/Noe/Bernal

I'm looking for a place to go after work--between, say, 8 and 9, without a reservation, to have a couple of glasses of wine or cocktails, and a few appetizers or a burger. The sort of place where a group of four could meet, with two people eating and two just imbibing...

I've recently moved from Cambridge, MA, which was quite rich in this sort of place: to give you an idea, I had Central Kitchen, West Side lounge, Casablanca, and Chez Henri on a fairly constant rotation... I've been to some great restaurants since I arrived here, but they have definitely all been *restauranty*--ie not places for informal or impromptu gatherings of friends. Recently, in no particular order, I've enjoyed the peach and heirloom tomato salad at Emmy's spaghetti shack, the sweetbreads and grilled walnut bread followed by roast chicken at Blue Plate, the smoked fish and watercress salad at Incanto, and ceviche at Mi Lindo Peru. Have also had some great, but foodless, times at the Latin American club and El Rio! Is there somewhere where I could combine the two? I've been thinking of trying Luna Park, The Liberties, and Beretta.

Thanks in advance for recommendations and local wisdom...
